Book Review: Night Will Find You by Julia Heaberlin

About the Book

Vivvy Bouchet, daughter of a known psychic, was ten when she saved a boy’s life by making an impossible prediction. Now she’s an astrophysicist in Texas, devoted to science, but the boy she saved has become a cop who continues to believe she can see things no one else can. When he begs for help on the high-profile cold case of a kidnapped girl, Vivvy steps back into the ocean of voices that once nearly drowned her.

She is forced to team up with detective Jesse Sharp, a skeptic of anything but fact. When Vivvy becomes the target of a conspiracy theorist podcaster, she fights back with both her scientific mind and her inexplicable gifts, hoping to lure a kidnapper, find a child who haunts her, and lay some of her own ghosts to rest.

Sharply relevant, Julia Heaberlin’s Night Will Find You explores the mysterious nature of belief—in psychic power, in science, in conspiracies, in a higher power—and the delicate dance between scientific truth and the things we can’t explain.

My Review

How have I not heard of Julia Heaberlin before??

This was an absolutely brilliant story! I absolutely loved everything about it, from the characterization to the plot to the pacing to the writing style. I was drawn in from the first pages and that interest never let go. I was frothing at the mouth during the excerpts with Bubba Guns, enraptured by the description of her search for light through the cosmos, and captivated by the familial relationship – dysfunction and all. The psychic elements were icing on the cake, handled with a deft touch that made it not only possible but necessary for me to believe in a psychic astrophysicist…

I would love to see this turn into a series. Even if it doesn’t, I’m pleased to note that the author has a number of other novels and believe me I will be tracking them down!

Thanks to NetGalley and the publisher for my obligation-free review copy.
