Overview

All Night Long by Jayne Ann Krentz

From New York Times bestselling author Jayne Ann Krentz comes an electrifying novel of passion, murder, and small-town scandal.
 
Investigative reporter Irene Stenson hasn’t been to her hometown of Dunsely, California, since the gruesome night she found both her parents dead on the kitchen floor. Now, seventeen years later, Irene has received a shocking new lead about their deaths—and is determined to discover the truth of what happened on that long-ago night.
 
Staying at a local lodge, she finds herself confiding in handsome Luke Danner—an ex-marine who’s as used to barking orders as Irene is to ignoring them. But Luke sees the terror beneath her confident exterior—and can’t help but want to protect her. He is also driven by passions of his own, and as they’re drawn together into the heart of danger, they will risk far more than either of them expected.

Whether writing as Amanda Quick, Jayne Castle or Jayne Ann Krentz, this author knows how to mix a sure-to-please readers' cocktail: Take 2 parts suspense, blend in 1 part sex, add a dash of surprises, and garnish with a satisfying conclusion. It's irresistible - after one sip you down it. Or, in the case of All Night Long read it from cover to cover. Set in Dunsley, a small northern California town bordering a lake, Krentz's latest romantic suspense novel loses no time in painting a chilling scene. The Prologue is related in flashback as Irene Stenson remembers a summer some 17 years ago. She had been out with her best friend, wealthy and privileged Pamela Webb. Things didn't seem right when she arrived home. The porch light was off - her parents never left the house dark when she was out. Hoping to avoid recrimination for her tardiness she went around to the back door, thinking she could sneak into her bedroom. However, she couldn't open the door, something heavy seemed to be blocking it from inside. She pushed. Her screams were 'high, desperate, frantic cries of grief, horror and denial' when she saw the bloody scene on the kitchen floor. The deaths of her parents was determined to be a murder-suicide, and teenaged Irene left Dunsley forever. In the intervening years she has been haunted by the dark, unable to sleep unless the room is well lit, terrified of night places. Now, some 17 years later she has received an email from her friend, Pamela, pleading with her to come back. What could possibly be so important that Pamela has to see her after all this time? It seems that question will remain unanswered as Pamela is found dead, pills and booze by her side. Her body is found in the home of her father, Ryland Webb, a U.S. Senator who has a new young wife and a sure shot for the presidency. Pamela's death is declared a suicide. Irene doesn't believe that any more than she believes that her parents' deaths were a murder/suicide. Where can she turn? The townspeople are determined to consider her 'not right' after the shock of finding her parents - she could surely use a friend and she finds him in an unlikely place. Luke Danner, a former Marine, now owns Sunrise on the Lake Lodge, the string of cabins where Irene is staying. He's gruff, used to barking orders, yet very attractive. He's everything a Krentz hero is - honorable, brave, strong. Yet, he has some problems of his own. Of course, there's chemistry between the two that develops intriguingly. While Irene had intended to put Dunsley in her rear view mirror as quickly as possible, she knows that she must find the truth that has been hidden for so many years and why keeping it secret is so vital to the present. One more exciting read from the indefatigable Jayne Ann Krentz. - Gail Cooke

Jsyne Ann Krentz failed to disappoint. One of her older books still is a "Can't put it down" read. Loved it.

My Synopsis: All Night Long by Jayne Ann Krentz Irene Stenson and Pamela Webb had been friends for one summer when they were teenagers. It ended on the tragic night that Irene came home to find her parents dead. The town of Dunster was quick to rule it a murder-suicide, but Irene was never convinced. Several years later, Irene receives a cryptic e-mail from Pamela asking her to meet her in Dursley. She has information about the past and used a super-secret teenage code from their past to let Irene know it was very important. Irene, who is now a reporter and her new found friend, Luke Danner, ex-marine and owner of the local lodge must piece together the events of that long ago summer night and figure out a new mystery that has surfaced right along with their passionate feelings for each other. Will Irene find out what really happened to her parents? What does Pamela have to do with it all? Is Luke interested in Irene or in connecting the dots? You'll have to read to find out... My Thoughts: This my first experience with Jayne Ann Krentz and I find that I really like her style. It is easy to see why she is considered one of the best in her genre. All Night Long is a book that is about romance, mystery, and family dynamics. Krentz allows the reader to follow not only the main story that involves the murder of Irene's parents, but the underlying theme of how some families appear to be perfect on the outside, but are far from it behind closed doors. I found it interesting that both the hero, Luke and the heroine, Irene, suffered from symptoms of PTSD (Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder), certainly not a theme that is found very often in the typical romance. But, this book was a lot more. I would probably term it more of romantic thriller. The passion was hot, but not too steamy. Just enough to get the reader to the point of using their own imagination and I certainly indulged and used mine LOL...
