What is your favorite island to visit?  While I dream of visiting a tropical island, I’d say my favorite island to visit is Mackinac Island in Michigan.  I love the Victorian charm, the history, and that there are no motorized vehicles on the island.  It’s like stepping back in time.

The Night Island is a paranormal romantic mystery.   Talia March, Pallas Llewellyn, and Amelia Rivers host a podcast that investigates cold cases.  They all have psychic abilities and believe that a shared experience from months ago that they cannot remember gave them these abilities.  When a fan, Phoebe, calls with a lead, Talia goes to meet her.  She does not find Phoebe, but does find Luke Rand, a man with psychic abilities also looking for answers.  The two of them follow clues to find Phoebe and end up on Night Island.  Night Island is the location of a remote retreat in the Pacific Northwest that advertises an unplugged experience.  It turns out that Phoebe is not the first guest to disappear on the island, and she will not be the last.  Will Talia and Luke be able to solve the mystery and leave the island alive?

Night Island is very creepy and has glowing, carnivorous plants.  I liked the suspense, and quick moving story.  I also liked the romantic tension between Talia and Luke.  This paranormal novel reminded me of the X-Men with Wolverine searching for his past and trying to determine what had happened to him. 

This is the second book in the Lost Night Files.  I did not realize that until I started reading the book.  The book did well as a standalone novel, but I would like to go back and read the first book in the series. 

I read this audiobook in January for the 2024 Brenda Novak Book Group Reading Challenge.  I enjoyed Eva Kaminsky’s narration of the audiobook.
