Kaine Prescott is no stranger to death. When her husband died two years ago, her pleas for further investigation into his suspicious death fell on deaf ears. In desperate need of a fresh start, Kaine purchases an old house sight unseen in her grandfather’s Wisconsin hometown. But one look at the eerie, abandoned house immediately leaves her questioning her rash decision. And when the house’s dark history comes back with a vengeance, Kaine is forced to face the terrifying realization she has nowhere left to hide.
A century earlier, the house on Foster Hill holds nothing but painful memories for Ivy Thorpe. When an unidentified woman is found dead on the property, Ivy is compelled to discover her identity. Ivy’s search leads her into dangerous waters and, even as she works together with a man from her past, can she unravel the mystery before any other lives–
including her own–are lost?
Review: This will be a short review but let me tell you, this book doesn’t need a long review…simply put: I really enjoyed it and could not put this one down.
I received this book from Bethany House Publishers for an honest review and oh my goodness I found this SO entertaining. I honestly haven’t read a mystery type book in awhile that I couldn’t put down. I loved the two different (interconnecting) stories. I loved all the characters, they were all complicated but found ways to fit together so nicely and I honestly had no idea who the “bad guy” was going to be another great thing about this story!
I already said this but I could not put this down, I wanted to know what happened to Ivy, I wanted to know what was going to happen to Kaine and how it all connected together. I also loved that the romances weren’t too romantic and that there was a belief that one could overcome any obstacle if they had hope and faith. This was truly mesmerizing.
Overall Rating: 5/5 stars
