Once again I felt myself unable to let go of Tiffany Reisz’s characters. Fascinating tale, a touch of magic and hope, I loved everything about The Night Mark.

Book Infos

9781460336335WEBFaye Barlow is drowning. After the death of her beloved husband, Will, she cannot escape her grief and most days can barely get out of bed. But when she’s offered a job photographing South Carolina’s storied coast, she accepts. Photography, after all, is the only passion she has left.

In the quaint beach town, Faye falls in love again when she sees the crumbling yet beautiful Bride Island lighthouse and becomes obsessed with the legend surrounding The Lady of the Light—the keeper’s daughter who died in a mysterious drowning in 1921. Like a moth to a flame, Faye is drawn to the lighthouse for reasons she can’t explain. While visiting it one night, she is struck by a rogue wave and a force impossible to resist drags Faye into the past—and into a love story that is not her own.

Fate is changeable. Broken hearts can mend. But can she love two men separated by a lifetime?

My Review


Pat had asked her what she thought she’d find at the lighthouse. She hadn’t known the answer then, but she knew it now.
She went to the lighthouse for the same reason anyone went to a lighthouse. She went because she needed light.

I’ve just read the most fantastic story… Sigh

Somehow and without expecting it, I’ve been transported right into my own personal fantasy and that’s just about every romance reader’s greatest wish ever.

I will love you and take care of you for the rest of your life.

Thanks the finest characterization I felt a little like reading one of those interactive adventure type of books (Lone Wolf game books), a few pages in and I could read the story as if I was the heroine. As such, I literally couldn’t stop from reading and see what would happen to Faye, what choices would she make, I had this urgency to know and I was HOPING.

Hope is a bright light on a dark night. If your hope is guiding you in this shore, then this is where you should drop anchor.

I felt it was the principal theme of this story, hope. The rough patch the heroine seemed to be stuck in at the beginning of the book only made me feel eager to read more and I started to read faster.


I could only yearn for hope. I knew better things were coming and let me just say I LOVED the way the author sparingly delivered clues and answers.

This story is beautiful and from personal experience reading about time travel romances I knew I would enjoy this book. What I didn’t know yet is how much I would come to care about the characters.

Tiffany Reisz writes characters like no one else’s. She really does. They’re singular with their quirks, humor and moods and you can’t stop but growing  attached. At one point they aren’t just fictional characters to you anymore, that’s how real she can write them. I truly felt like I was right there on a South Carolina’s beach enjoying Dolly’s peach pies, having a chat with Carrick, Faye and Pat. ( I wouldn’t mind reading a lot more about Father Pat Cahill, such an interesting man!)

-Do I sound crazy? You can tell me if I do. I can take it.
-My job entailed me turning wine into God’s blood, so I don’t think I can judge you harshly. I’m an open-minded spiritual man by trade

Although The Night Mark is cloaked in mystery and mystical, it’s first and foremost a beautiful love story and there is no doubt you will swoon for Carrick  Morgan, the hero of this book was just about perfect.

The Night Mark blurb is vague enough not giving away too much and that’s how I’ll try to keep this review. I just can’t risk to reveal some things I believe are best experiencing yourself.

I feel like I’m still on a book high, and if I close my eyes for a second I can still picture myself there, Bride Island, eating peach pie with a good friend and my soulmate.This book was magical !
