If you are looking for mystery, hauntings, and a dash of sweet romance in the midst of panic, you have to read this book. I couldn’t put it down!

A debut novel with the perfect amount of suspense and mystery that will leave you guessing until the last moment.

Oh man, I haven't read a ghost story in way too long, and this book was the perfect reintroduction! Bri R. Leclerc's debut novel will keep me jumping and looking at every shadow for weeks to come. The haunted setting, lovable characters, and spooky plot is PERFECT for this time of year.

I'm really looking forward to whatever Ms. Leclerc writes next!

Creative, intriguing story. My heart sped up at times and broke at others. Bri did a wonderful job of describing emotions. I'd love to read more by her.

My only critique would be that at the beginning a lot of the sentences back to back started with "I" and the repetition took me out of the story momentarily.
This debut novel is spooky and action packed! It was fun to watch Mari learn about herself and her roots in the midst of such chaos. And, of course, there's a healthy dose of romance to balance it all out.

Highly recommend

This was the first book I have read for pleasure in a long time and I am so glad this is what I chose. Perfect combination of suspense and action sprinkled with endearing moments of teenage romance. Can’t wait to read more from this author!

This book literally gave me chills at several points. I've never read a paranormal fiction book before, but this may have converted me! I loved the story, and I was on the edge of my seat while I read it. It's definitely a page-turner. Mari was a relatable character, and I loved her storyline! Such a good book!

If you are looking for a good, scary read, try this one. Yeah, it is written for young adults but there is something reallllllllly scary about the descriptions and the non-stop action. I'm not really a horror fan, but this one kept me up reading late and then gave me nightmares. First time author, so look out!
