I recently finished reading Waiting for the Night Song by Julie Carrick Dalton, a novel that was compared to Where the Crawdads Sing by Delia Owns (which is one of my newest favorite books of all time). I was eager to find similar reads because Crawdads had blown my mind and left me wanting more.
Waiting for the Night Song follows protagonist Cadie Kessler, a young girl who is passionate about the woods and animals that surround her home. As the book jumps back and forth between the past and present time, we learn that Cadie, her best friend Daniela and love interest Garrett were all involved in the murder of a local farm worker.
Although I found the ending somewhat predictable, I found this book to be incredibly descriptive, to the point where you can vividly imagine or even see the scenes that play out in the book.
I would give this book probably a 4/5. Overall it was a really good read and I think it’s pretty high up there with books that won’t disappoint. Check out the book here: https://amzn.to/3aZFwmu
