This book was... Wow. I'm amazed with H B Stumbo. New fan!!!

Val returns to sell her old family home. She doesn't have a reason to hold onto the past anymore, and after eight years of waiting, she has finally decided to return to her home town and put the house up for auction. During her time there, she meets Anderson - the young photographer who had moved to Devil Town a few years back.

Sometimes the choices we make are a direct results of something bigger than us.

They grow closer together, and a

H.B. is a new to me author and to say I'm impressed would not be sufficient enough. Her writing style is seamless. Her editing almost flawless (hey, we're all human). The flow of the story sucks you in and doesn't want to let you go. Kind of like the setting of this book, Devil's Town. Like the pull Val feels from the town, I felt it toward the book every time I had to put it down. I wanted nothing more than to get sucked back in.

Val's story is told in the present tense, but the past is weaved

This was my first HB Stumbo read (I apologize for being a terrible friend) and I was pleasantly surprised by this story! I didn't know too much about it going in but I was grateful to receive and review an ARC!

The story is focused on a young woman returning to her small home town to tie up some loose ends from her past. Val Stevens left years ago and we all know that something somewhere down the line, brings us back to our past. The town sucks people in, as Stumbo writes, and Val is too familiar

I did not see that ending! It took me a while to get into the book, it held my interest enough for me to continue reading. About halfway through I felt invested in the characters and started to connect with Val. The last 20% completely blew me away and the ending was a HUGE twist! The storyline was unique and the world that is built within is amazing. This is my first H.B. Stumbled read but will not be my last.

Come on now……what the heck!!! This was a hard book to start. I tried several time to start it and finally I just told my self just push through. It was worth the push. It got so good and i did go to bed until 3 am cause I couldn’t not stop reading. Finished the book trying not yell at my kindle. lol I think my husband would look at me weird.

Val is struggling with her past and has come back to town that is the source of this struggle. She is ready to get rid of the house her father gave her and s

This book... Oh man! The story is told with a present tense and every other chapter or so a snip-it about our main gal pal, Val's past is thrown in to give you just a tiny bit of the puzzle. I love when this is done well because it really helps draw a reader in and fill out the character. You will want to know what is going on and why Jordan (ugh!) won't just stay gone. It's definitely the type of book you will find yourself saying "just one more chapter" until 1AM when you have to get up at 5:3 ...more

I absolutely loved the style of writing. It had a very poetic feel to it. It read like a contemporary with a dark twist at the end. "Twisted turn of events" may be a bit of and understatement and the twist doesn't really show up until you're near the end as in 80% done!
I really related to the main character Val because of some of her issues and I think the shock was just as much a shock to her as it is for the reader. If I could change anything about the book I would either put the twist near th

What a twist!!

A ending I never expected. One of those books you hope continues on and on because you love how you can't put it down.

Hayley just really likes to write.

Hayley lives in Ohio with her husband and pets. She is a firm believer in remaining true to yourself, Led Zeppelin, Tom Petty, peaches, and wine. When she isn't writing, she enjoys exploring new places, cooking, and laughing so hard that she can't breathe.

She prefers to live life on the more humorous edge, and doesn't take the world or herself too seriously.
