Why did I love this book?
A story narrated by a ghost––Yesss!
This tale of hauntings in a small coastal town was so convincing that I found myself avoiding the mirrors in my house, mirrors being the place where the spirits of the dead take refuge, patiently waiting to wreak havoc on the living in revenge for the injustices of the past.
The novel begins with the most vivid and chilling scene I’ve read in a long time and stayed true to its promise of delivering a gripping story with creepy Gothic overtones.
I loved how the tragic events in long-dead Emma Rose’s past bled into the present-day life of the town, creating eerie connections and unexpected moral conflicts for the ghost hunter who’s been sent to wipe her out.
