The readers can download Veil of Night Audiobook for free via Audible Free Trial.


Jaclyn Wilde is a wedding planner who loves her job—usually. But helping Carrie Edwards with her Big Day has been an unrelenting nightmare. Carrie is a bridezilla of mythic nastiness, a diva whose tantrums are just about as crazy as her demands. But the unpleasant task at hand turns seriously criminal when Carrie is brutally murdered and everyone involved with the ceremony is accusing one another of doing the deed.



  • While Jaclyn Wilde may not be as captivating as Blair Mallory and Eric Wilder may not have the same charm as Wyatt Bloodsworth, 'Veil of Night' is still an enjoyable and easy read. If you haven't already, I highly recommend reading Howard's 'To Die For' and 'Drop Dead Gorgeous'. The humorous morning coffee surprises and the mouth-watering shish kabobs are definitely standout moments in the book. And let's not forget Ross, who did a commendable job with the narration.
  • I just don't get why people are hating on the narrator. Personally, I loved the way she brought this book to life. Maybe the slow drawl isn't everyone's cup of tea, but I thought it was a perfect fit for the story. Sure, the romance fell a bit short and the mystery wasn't exactly mind-blowing, but the vivid descriptions and engaging dialogue kept me hooked. This is definitely a book I'll be revisiting time and time again.
  • It's a shame that I'm married, because now I have all this knowledge about planning weddings and keeping brides happy. Linda Howard, whom I usually enjoy reading or listening to, should have left "Veil of Night" in the 1990s box it came from. The plot had potential for humor, but the idea of having sex with a stranger, especially when the characters are supposed to be rational adults in the modern age, just didn't work. The excessive yelling, pouting, and huffing didn't help either. As someone who knows southern women and has experience teaching kindergarten, I can confidently say that the narrator, Clarinda Ross, spoke in a manner that seemed more suited for children with developmental delays in the south. I'll definitely be avoiding her as a narrator in the future. Hopefully, Howard will get her next book from a more recent file, like one marked 2010, and redeem herself.
  • I've been a fan of Linda Howard for ages. I absolutely loved this audiobook. It had a great mix of mystery and playful banter between the main characters. The narration was top-notch. I can see myself revisiting this one multiple times for sure.
  • I can't wrap my head around how this narrator ended up narrating a talented author like Linda Howard. While this book may not be her finest work, it definitely deserved a more skilled narrator who could properly emphasize the right words and deliver inflections in the correct places. If possible, I would return this audiobook. To all fellow listeners, steer clear of this one if you're looking for a truly enjoyable experience.
  • 'Veil of Night' is a delightful combination of the thrilling elements found in 'Dying to Please,' 'Drop Dead Gorgeous,' and 'To Die For.' It was an absolute blast to listen to, and personally, I thoroughly enjoyed it.
  • As someone who's been a fan of Linda Howard for a while, it's surprising that I haven't come across this book before. I've definitely been missing out because the story is truly fantastic. I think I would have enjoyed it even more if I had read it instead of listening to it, but it's definitely worth the time and money. The narrator did a great job with announcing the new chapters, but outside of that, their performance felt rigid and awkward.
  • I'm obsessed with this audiobook!! I've listened to it so many times, I've lost track. It's got everything you could want. The suspense, the passion, and the moments that make you burst out laughing. It's totally worth using a credit for. And on top of that, Clarinda Ross' narration is absolutely fantastic. 😁
  • I gotta say, this audiobook is straight fire! Seriously, it's one of the best ones I've come across. From start to finish, I was hooked and loving every minute of it. What a total treat for the ears!
  • I can't stand it when books go into unnecessary detail about things that have absolutely no relevance to the main story. I was expecting a murder mystery with a side of romance in this book, but instead, around two-thirds of the book is dedicated to painstakingly describing wedding planning, with only a small portion devoted to romance and advancing the plot. Some parts about the wedding planning are a bit amusing, although they tend to be repetitive. So, just keep in mind that you're going to acquire quite a bit of knowledge about the role of a wedding planner if you decide to give this book a go. Additionally, it becomes evident early on who the culprit is, but it takes an extraordinarily long time for them to be apprehended, and the way they are eventually caught and how the story concludes is quite absurd, to be honest.
