That night was a night like any other. The sky was clear and the moon was full, casting a soft glow over the landscape. I had just finished a long day at work and was looking forward to getting some rest.
As I made my way home, I couldn't help but feel a sense of excitement and anticipation. I had plans to meet up with some friends later on and we were going to have a fun night out.
When I arrived home, I quickly changed into some comfortable clothes and headed out. My friends were already at the designated meeting spot, chatting and laughing as we waited for the rest of the group to arrive.
Eventually, we were all together and ready to go. We decided to hit up a local bar for some drinks and dancing. The music was loud and the atmosphere was electric. I let myself get lost in the moment, dancing and laughing with my friends.
As the night went on, we decided to take a break and grab some food. We found a cozy little diner and sat down to enjoy some burgers and fries. The conversation flowed easily and I felt myself completely relaxed and at ease.
After we finished eating, we headed back out to continue our night of fun. We went to a few more bars and clubs, each one offering a different atmosphere and music selection. I felt like I was on top of the world, surrounded by good friends and having the time of my life.
As the night came to a close, I couldn't help but feel grateful for the experience. It was one of those rare nights where everything just seemed to fall into place and everything was perfect. I knew that it was a night I would remember for a long time to come.

One hot summers night in Italy, Joe and Cathy Plant receive a phone call that will change their lives forever. Best character in the whole book was Lydia who no one gave a shit about! The siblings received a frantic phone call informing them what had happened but neither Joe nor That Night is the latest standalone psychological thriller from Gillian McAllister about two siblings who go all in to cover up a body that had been seemingly murdered by their sister Frannie.
Frannie is a single mum, she is used to being babied by her brother and sister and they are all extremely close. The film is set in the 1960's, the days of rock and roll and a summer of love.

The story wrapped up well but for me it took too long to get there and started to feel repetitive as the situation spiralled downwards into a more and more complex situation with zero chance of these crimes being concealed. Finally, he and his gang drive to her house where Rick pleads to speak to Sheryl. I wouldn't say I loved reading this, it was tense and stressful, but I equally I did kind of enjoy it, and couldn't stop turning the pages to see what would become of the Plants, to discover how their lies caught up with them, and to find out how far they would go for each other!
