Wow! Suspense, secrets, family fueds, this book has it all! When Elle's grandmother passes away on Founder's Day, Elle is called home. What happens over the next year is certainly eye opening, but the ending certainly threw me for a loop!

This book took a little while to draw me in. At first I just wasn't clicking with the main character, but then she arrived at her grandmother's house and weird stuff started happening. From that point on I didn't want to put the book down.

Okay, I'll confess that, being a horror movie buff who loves stories with a paranormal twist, I was secretly hoping that the strange occurances would turn out to be the grandmother's ghost. Alas, that is not the story this turned out to be, but it is a page-tu

I got an ARC of this book. What a suspense/thriller. The secrets that are in this family were so unbelievable. I totally loved reading this book. It kept you on the edge the entire time. Especially when that fateful day comes up in Crimson Falls. I definitely was shocked with what happened at the end. A definite page turner and an awesome suspense/thriller. When you are left on the edge in a book not knowing what to expect it's awesome. Thank you Rachel. 5 star plus from me.

But when her grandmother passes she dares to return. Trying to find answers to her endless list of questions isn't easy, and the final chapter will still your breath and leave you s ...more

Rachel Renee brings us a tale that will keep you on the edge your chair the entire time, especially when Founders Day comes to Crimson Falls.  The Last DuPont is a definite page turner and an awesome suspense/thriller.


Ella's grandmother died on October 13, a grandmother Ella doesn't remember.  Now she's back to settle her granny's estate - It should only take a couple of days.

Her mother always insisted the town was cursed, that's why they never returned or visited.  But Ella doesn't believe in c

Lawd have mercy, this story was something else! Ella Dupont suffered the curse of Crimson Falls at an early age, so her mother took her & ran, and they didn't look back. Twenty years later, she's called home because she's the last Dupont after her grandmother passed away, so she needs to settle her estate. Ella only thinks she's there temporarily, but somehow the town draws her in, and she finds herself staying. Man, the twists in this story had me dropping so many f-bombs it wasn't even fun ...more

To say this story surprised me at the end is not giving it enough credit, because it came at me like a car going 0-60 mph! The shock stood with me all day! It was that incredible. I did not see it coming!
Ella is the Last DuPont and She goes back to Crimson Falls to close out her Grandmothers Estate only to learn certain things along the way about her family and herself. Does Crimson Falls have a Curse? You will have to read this book to find out and I have to say that if you miss this one you ar

Rachel Renee’s latest book has it all: family secrets, mysteries around every corner, and the biggest twist at the root of it all. Renee manages to keep the reader on the edge of their seats with this novella. I never saw that ending coming! A suspenseful story with one chilling twist after the next. This book had me watching over my shoulder as I read! One of the most unique and exciting books I’ve read in a long time...

What a great story! Ella Dupont gets called back to her birthplace after leaving 20 years earlier. Find herself the owner of an old house and the heart of a young man. Ella falls in love, but is she willing to sacrifice everything for Crimson Falls? A surprise ending that I never saw coming!

Crimson Falls is a town where anything can happen and usually does.
