My Review

5 Stars

Claire Bennett has been raised by her absent father and Aunt Clarissa since her mother’s death. Clarissa is special since she has visions. Claire finds herself draw to an island and a house with a haunted past. When Claire wins the lottery she uses the money to buy the house and plans on renovating it. But Clarissa has a vision of someone is out to get Claire. Claire is initially skeptical and not willing to believe Clarissa until strange things start happening.

This is a slow building story that will draw you in with its breath taking imagery. It slowly build up the pace as you following along as Claire buys the house and starts renovating it. Once you are there then it starts adding some creep factor that gets the hairs on the back of your neck to stand up and read faster. The ending was the best part that I was not expecting.

This is a fantastic paranormal thriller. You are kept guessing at the person out to get Claire and the haunting. I’m a ghost believer and I would love t go through haunted locations. But I don’t know if I would have held out as long as Claire in her situation. Make sure to get a copy of this book to see what I mean.

I received a complimentary copy of this book. I voluntarily chose to read and post an honest review.

I would like to thank Rachel’s Random Resources for the opportunity to read and share this book.
