Overview

From acclaimed author Antoinette Stockenberg comes an intensely emotional story that is both suspenseful and romantic....

SALEM. WILL HISTORY REPEAT ITSELF?

Three centuries after the infamous witch trials in Salem, Massachusetts, Helen Evett, owner of a prestigious preschool there, finds her family and life's work threatened because of her sudden desire to protect the three-year-old daughter of a man who knows a lot about finance but little about fathering. Helen's feelings toward Katie's dad are decidedly mixed, and it will take more than knocks in the night, perfumed air, and bone-chilling cold to convince her otherwise.

Nathaniel Byrne is just as ambivalent about Helen. Recently widowed, tormented by the circumstances, and at sea about being a single parent, Nat is not inclined to hand over his daughter to this singularly pushy woman. The London-trained nanny who cares for his daughter agrees.

And the nanny herself? Peaches Bartholemew is as clever as she is beautiful, as efficient as she is soothing. Peaches can do anything. The trick, for Nat's dead wife, will be to keep her from doing it.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly
"Full of charm and wit, Stockenberg's latest (following Time After Time) is truly enthralling."
Library Journal
"A pair of well-matched protagonists, a precocious three-year-old, a relentless ghost, and a conniving nanny combine to produce an engrossing, well-written story that should keep readers captivated to the end."
Romantic Times
“When it comes to unique, eerie and engrossing tales of supernatural suspense, author Antoinette Stockenberg is in a league of her own. BEYOND MIDNIGHT is a gripping and chilling page-turner outlining two families’ courageous battle against an insidious evil with a charming face. Outstanding reading!”
Milwaukee Journal
"BEYOND MIDNIGHT" has a terrific plot, a wicked villain, and a sexy hero. But the novel ventures beyond sheer entertainment, and it is easy to see why Stockenberg's work has won such acclaim. The theme and setting create a terrifying scenario: a chilling correspondence between the events of Salem's witch-hunting hysteria and contemporary allegations of ritualistic abuse in preschools. A good read that makes you think. Comes awfully close to—dare I say it?—literature."
Gothic Journal
"Entertaining and fun. BEYOND MIDNIGHT'S shining strengths are its insights into parenting and relationship issues, its brazen humor, its writing style, its to-die-for hero, its cunning villain, and its intriguing supernatural overtones."

    I loved this book although I was bit taken aback at the beginning. Helen was dreading March because her husband passed away on April1. I was dreading March because my husband passed away on April 1. He was in law enforcement so was mine, his name was Hand my husband's name is Hank. She's a teacher of young children as am I and she drives a Volvo-as do I. Once I got over my tears and read the book it was great!

    Compelling read

    Just finished this on my Nook and ran into no formatting problems reading this book. Great story, terrific characters, and a cunning villain that made you realize how easy it would be to bring down a preschool. Humorous, chilling, and romantic. Loved it!

    Great story

    Totally enjoyed this book. Technical problem toward end. Skipped about ten pages to end, had to manually enter page numbers at Go To Page to read last pages of book. Otherwise would definitely recommend.

    Love this author!

    I started reading Annette's books this summer and haven't stopped. All of her books are perfect summer reads! They're just mysterious enough to make me want to read "just 1 more chapter"!! All of her main characters are people I wish I knew. Waiting for "Tidewater".

    Great plot, good subject matter.

    I thoroughly enjoyed this book. The plot was great. Some parts were really funny, a few parts were steamy, and if you believe in ghosts and spirits, this book is for you.

    Recommend for a good read

    Appropriate for those who love New England and enjoy family stories, woven with mystery. I do like reading Stockenberg books; about 5 at this point. Some of the author’s books qualify for book club discussions. The length and fantasy of beyond midnight may not work for a discussion club.

    Great suspense story

    Although I had figured out who was the trouble maker mid book I still wasn't sure how they were going to capture them. Kept my interest through the entire book. Just discovered this author this summer and have read all her books that are available for the Nook. Waiting for more!
