APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
When Sara was a teenager she harbored a major crush on Aiden—but he wrote her off as the girl next door. A decade later, Sara's a hotshot attorney and Aiden’s a broken firefighter who needs her help to uncover how a firefighting accident took his best friend's life. The first installment of New York Times best-selling author Barbara Freethy’s Callaway series—about a sprawling and vivacious Irish-American family—moves briskly with page-turning action. The characters, especially the brooding hero Aiden, are thoughtfully drawn with revealing details about their inner lives and motivations. On a Night Like This is a deep, exciting exploration of how lovers can grow and find their way back to each other.

On a Night Like This
I think I've found a new author! I was given On a Night Like This and I loved it. Once I got started I had a hard time stopping. It was a refreshing change with a teenage crush on the boy next door. Sara had a crush on her friends older brother Aiden most of her life. When she came back to celebrate her father's birthday Aiden came busting into her life, literally! Aiden was trying not to fall for her but somethings are just meant to be. There were some great twists I never saw coming and it kept me sneaking in to read more!! The Callaway family is very intriguing and I can't wait to find out where it will take me!!
On a Night Like This
This is a great way to start a series! I loved all the characters and setting. Barbara Freethy has a way of weaving a story that when I HAD to put the book down, I couldn't wait to get back reading to see where the story went. I have made a list of her books so I can continue reading her marvelous books! I highly recommend any one of these to those looking for a great escape from the everyday world!
