Summary

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?

Great new author!

Ms. Wright is a new author to me and I have already purchased her next book. Great storyline, plot, very clean, suspenseful and inspiring as well though you do not expect that.

Very well read by Erin Bennet.

Gothic Elements, Great Story!

Really enjoyed this story! I loved the Gothic elements, romance and mystery. I also loved the split time story lines.

Intense Ride!

Wow, talk about one intense ride! I've read Jaime Jo Wright's other novels and LOVED them so I was happy to finally get my hands on her award-winning debut. I'm pleased to share that her writing has been masterful right from the beginning!

I was really impressed with the narrator. Her voice matched the energy and intensity of the story and really made it come to life. This was a very entertaining book to listen to. Although I was able to listen to it over two nights at work, even at home this wouldn't be an easy one to press the pause button.

I love that Jaime Jo's books are incredibly unpredictable. When you open the book you can expect to go on a wild (and often scary) ride of mystery and suspense from two timelines that weave together into the perfect masterpiece by the time you reach the conclusion. I really appreciate that she is able to share suspenseful stories that have conclusions that  don't compromise on Christian values. Each book has a part where the characters talk about a heart change and/or message the Lord has taught them through their ordeal. her books aren't overly "preachy" but the moments where she shares Christ are perfectly written to get people thinking.

This story really got my heart pumping. It was realistic and suspenseful. The characters and setting were well developed. I was quickly sucked into the world of Foster Hill and held captive to the very end. I felt like I was on the same journey right alongside Ivy and Kaine. This is a story that's sure to stay with me for a very long time.

*Just a big of a content warning, but I think this book has some elements that may be triggers for PTSD and sexual assault. Part of this story talks about human trafficking and there is some stalking and domestic abuse that can be difficult for some readers.

Just not very good

I know people are happy to have faith based fiction. I think the bar should be higher. There are elements of the story that are very interesting but by and large it’s unsophisticated in the character development and heavy handed in the references to faith. I had hoped for a more complete story with characters I could really get attached to. With so many good writes and books, I would let this drop low on your list unless faith is really your only criteria.

it goes on and on and on and on

This book is split into two perspectives- Caine and Ivy. Caine's story is okay. Nothing too spectacular nor intriguing. Ivy's story on the other hand in literally the SAME. THING. OVER. AND. OVER!!! All she talks about is her dead brother. Again and again and again! It's maddening!!!!!! And she doesnt even tell more about how he died as the book goes on. She just re-hashes the same details over and over. It's like I'm in some sort of time warp. I'm about half way done and literally nothing of interest has happened. Save yourself a credit, and more importantly some time, and get another book.
