The sequel
5 January 2006 | by SingingGrl247See all my reviews

Night Sins is a great movie. It draws the audience in and keeps you at the edge of your seat with all the twists and turns. It takes awhile to guess the truth, but eventually you will figure it out!

Tami Hoag's Night Sins does have a follow-up. It's called Guilty as Sin. If you are not familiar with her work, she is an exceptional author and her books are riveting. I definitely recommend reading both books. I also saw the movie before I read the book and the movie drove me to read the books as well. I am glad I did. I am sure you will not regret it either.

Have fun continuing the story!
