“"...Joan Hall Hovey is one of the best suspense writers I've ever read. I just downloaded her new book, NIGHT CORRIDOR, this morning and zapped it into my brand-new JUST received and installed Kindle, and started reading it there, rather than on my computer, which is very hard to do. For those of you who might not know her writing, Joan has a haunting style that begins on the first page and I'll be darned if I can figure out how she does it, because you're grabbed right away and cannot stop reading.
Every book of hers that I've read has done the same thing. The soft voice that tells her stories comes through so clearly in her books that I'm consumed with admiration. I love books by people who can do that. Love writing like that, which seems to come straight from the author's soul. Whatever it is, Joan Hall Hovey has it..." ~ Beth Anderson, RAVEN TALKS BACK
"Night Corridor by Joan Hall Hovey was a FANTASTIC read! Although the words, suspense, mystery, and thriller come to mind, I must add Cliffhanger, Cloak and Dagger, and Chilling to the list. The story will leave you on the edge of your seat, wanting to know who the mystery man is, and also wanting more chapters, more of the story, I couldn't stop reading. The story reminded me a movie I might see on the Lifetime channel, and Night Corridor is that good that it should be made into a movie. If you are looking for a suspenseful, riveting read, Night Corridor will not disappoint.
Ms. Hovey is a veteran mystery novelist, and although this is the first of her books I've read, I will be purchasing her previous novels. Her personalization of the characters is so superb that you feel as if you are the character. Easy to follow, and easy to read, yet full of shock and wow, Ms. Hovey I am impressed!!" ~ Stacey Keen, Book Reviewer
"Joan Hall Hovey has written a mystery novel worth reading, worth commenting on, and worth a 5 Star review. The story follows Caroline Hill as she leaves a mental institution she has been at for nine years. With no family left to support her, she enters a strange world on her own. Not only must she struggle fitting into a new society, she also realizes she is being stalked. Ms. Hovey's characterization of Caroline Hill leaves the reader feeling what Caroline is feeling, walking with her as she is walking, feeling terrified when Caroline is terrified. You are there with her on her suspenseful journey. I must say, I couldn't put the book down and could never guess who the murderer was. It was a great story, a great read, a suspenseful mystery I won't soon forget. Great Job Ms. Hovey, I now must go back and read your other novels!!!" ~ Jenn Smith, Book Reviewer
"Ms. Hall Hovey does it again, in fact this may be her best book yet. What I personally love about Ms. Hall Hovey is that she writes a real page turner in which you really cannot figure out who the culprit is till the very end. I am also particularly drawn in by the sensitive, empathetic in depth character portrayals which make the reader feel that he/she really knows & cares about these people. Her great writing style, her keen wit and attention to detail combined with her wonderful ability to tell a great story make Ms. Hall Hovey a truly talented artist, a truly great writer. I highly recommend all of this authoress' books, and am very excited about her latest, "Night Corridor". Great cover!" ~ Marian Rand
