THE HOUSE ON FOSTER HILL, by Jaime Jo Wright, Bethany House

34020199

 

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?

MY THOUGHTS:

I received this book in exchange for my honest review.

The cover is so perfect!

Creepy house, two timelines, stalker, ghosts, strange sounds, no one believes her, mystery, killers…. I was in at “Creepy!”

I loved the premise when I read the synopsis for this book and had to have it to review.  I write supernatural thrillers and this one was bang-on.  The two timelines are clear and precise for their eras and beneficial to the story as a whole.  Each compliments the other and aids in the Protagonist’s character development.  The tension is continuous, building for a spectacular ending and resolution.

All the characters are developed and useful to the story.  Each is complete and help the Protagonist reach her goals. The author’s voice is, as always, fantastic and perfectly written pushing the story forward at a delightful pace with a plot full of twists and turns and spine-tingling moments.  Don’t read this book alone in the dark during a storm, I dare you!

I give this book:
