After Sundown

Morrow. Mar. 2020. 384p. ISBN 9780062842633. $27.99. ROMANTIC SUSPENSE
The world as they know it is ending. A series of solar flares will knock out power grids across the Earth for months, possibly years. After several tours in the military, Ben Jernigan knows to be prepared for anything. His remote mountain home is well supplied and ready to run on solar power. Advance warning from a fellow veteran means he can stock up on gas and get any last-minute items well before the news breaks. What he’s not planned for is his unwanted connection to Sela Gordon, the owner of the local general store. When leadership is thrust upon a reluctant Sela, she reaches out to the man she knows can best help them all survive the multitude of threats they will face.
VERDICT This new collaboration between Howard and Jones (after Running Wild) weaves a moving love story into a community’s journey through hardship and sacrifice. The worldbuilding in this romantic thriller clearly shows how a cataclysmic event brings these self-imposed loners, and their community, together.
