Librarian Aly Wepplo recommends After Sundown by Linda Howard.
Sela runs a general store in a tiny mountain town. She’s shy and prefers to spend a lot of time alone. But she’s always been intrigued by Ben, the reclusive ex-military man who lives in solitude at the top of the mountain. When Ben warns Sela of an impending natural disaster that could knock out the world’s power grid, she’s not sure what to believe, but she stocks up on supplies—just in case.
Soon, their tiny mountain town is thrown into chaos, and Sela must dig deep within herself to become a leader in the community.
After Sundown is a romance novel, and it’s perfect for a relaxed summer weekend.
I loved watching the whole cast of characters – people in a remote mountain valley – learn to take care of each other – without power! Without modern conveniences! With all the deep longing you’d expect from a romance! It’s an exciting adventure.
This book is great for fans of Colleen Hoover and Jayne Anne Krentz.
