Let me start by saying I absolutely LOVED the cover for this book. I don’t normally pay too much attention to covers, but this one definitely caught my eye. It’s simple, yet goes with the book perfectly.

This was an interesting story. The main character, Carly, starts to see and hear things that no one else can. It starts to affect her relationship and question her own sanity. She firsts notices there is a problem when she looks at some pictures she took underneath a tree during a picnic with he

Within a few chapters into this book, I caught myself jumping at every little noise and I couldn’t look in a mirror for a couple of days without taking super deep breaths. I love the story behind the paranormal aspect to the story. I love reading and watching paranormal storylines but the ones that are explainable seem to resonate with me. I love how the author created her scenery – every scene fit perfectly with the events that were occurring throughout the entire book. Rather than let herself ...more

Everything in Carly’s life is going pretty well; she is engaged to a wonderful guy, James, and they are celebrating their three year anniversary. For their anniversary, they decide on a picnic in the country. Carly chooses a hill with a very unique tree; a tree with white bark and deep red leaves. Carly and James picnic under the tree and Carly takes some photographs. When she gets home, the trouble begins. In half of the photos, Carly has no eyes. The problem persists, cell phone photos- no eye ...more

This was a fast read. I couldn’t put it down I wanted to see how it ended.
Carly suddenly is consumed with paranormal activity around her. It’s just one small event set this all in motion.
This book made me stop to think…do our actions today have any effect on things from the past? It really makes you stop and think.
This book ended in a way that makes you want a second book. I hope there is a follow up book to this one. I have so many questions that are still unanswered. This is how you can tell i

I received a free copy of this novel in exchange for my honest review.

The Crimson Tree is a fantastic paranormal mystery to kick off the Halloween season. Carly's life was going great, she was extremely happy and about to marry the man of her dreams. That is until that fateful day under the crimson tree. Will anyone believe the things she claims to see? Will she ever have a peaceful life again?

This was a great story! I loved how Carly's best friend believed her right from the start. This was a f

MY REVIEW
This book at first may have started less than ideal that did not last long. The way it written and knowing it is based on true events makes it seem scarier as your reading and you can feel more for the characters.
I enjoyed this book and look forward to reading any future writings.

I was given an ARC copy for an honest review.
