this is a first author for me (have not read any of her past books) so my expectations were middle of the fence going in. Also, I am not a big fan of paranormal genre but I loved the cover art on this book and the description intrigued me. With that all being said, I loved this story-the author's flow with words and keeping the pace up in the book was perfect. I am such a sucker for dialog in stories, and this one was so full of rich, engaging dialog, I could not put the book down. I fell in love with Willa and Lee from the start, and setting the story up when they were teenagers gave the story line even more depth.
I said I wasn't a big fan of paranormal genre but this book had me hooked right at the start of hearing splashing water when no one was there. The story is full of colorful characters, some more suspicious, and I had about 3 pegged as 'the one', but in the end, a twist I did not see coming.
Along the way of the mystery, the love story of Lee and Willa built, although there was a 25 year break, they feel into each other once again.
I am so glad I picked up this book, this author will definitely be on my must read list going forward, and I plan to pick up her past books with anticipation.
I received an ARC through Netgalley in exchange for an honest review, but would have written the same opinion if I had come across this author on my own.
To see my Amazon review, it is under CC-Could not put it down
