That Night by Chevy Stevens

Toni Murphy and her high school boyfriend are serving a seventeen year sentence for the murder of her sister, Nicole, who was killed out at the lake while Ryan and Toni were fooling around in the woods.

Toni was only eighteen when she was arrested and convicted for a crime she didn't commit. Now that she is on parole, she just wants to move on with her life and stay out of trouble, but someone out there is intent on putting her back behind bars. A stipulation of her parole is she is not allowed contact with Ryan, but he approaches her in hopes of getting her help in locating the real killer.

The chapters alternate from present day to what was going on in high school leading up to her sister's death. Back in school, Shauna and her group of followers always picked on Toni. Then, they got her sister Nicole to join their clan but eventually had a falling out with her too. Both Toni and Ryan know that Shauna and her friend's testimony is what put them away. Shauna is capable of lying under oath, but could she also be capable of murder?

I totally loved the first two books I read by Stevens, Still Missing and Never Knowing. I stopped reading her when a friend send her recent books weren't as good. Why did I listen at first? She was dead wrong. That Night is another Canadian-set story of psychological suspense that doesn't disappoint. If you are looking for a twisty and dark page-turner like Gone Girl, this author's books are for you!
