Title: Hope

Author: Josephine Walker

An amazing story of courage and character that you will not want to put down.

After two and a half years of deep depression, anger at God, and guilt over the death of her husband and twin girls, all bestselling romance writer Jessica Lynn Morgan wants is to buy a house, get back to writing, and live out her life alone in peace. And the little town of Hope, Wyoming, seems to offer the peace she needs.

Or does it?

Unfortunately, her dream house is rumored to be haunted. Not one to believe in ghosts, she fights for any logical explanation for the things happening that seem to warn her off. Once she moves in, the threat against her life becomes real. Clearly, someone or something wants her out. Now.

Will her stubbornness cost Jessica her life?


My Review

4/5 Stars

After living a life of tragedy, Jessica is trying to find the light at the end of the tunnel. In her little town of Hope, everything she wishes for seems possible, until strange things start to happen inside her home. Is there a ghost or is it something more insidious trying to get her to flee?

Overall, a good romance/mystery story. I liked Clint and Jessica. They were relatable characters with their own little quirks. Jessica especially had a sharp personality, and her optimistic outlook on life was refreshing. I loved the way Clint took care of Jessica. The relationship between them was easy.

The plot of the story was unique. Even though there was a lot of suspense, to me this story felt more like a literary fiction piece than anything else. With the amount of character development that Jessica went through between finding herself and her love for God, this would make a good read for fans of Christian fiction.

Narration was okay, but a little slow.

This book was given to me for free at my request and I provided this voluntary review.

Proud author responsible for Dead by Morning and The Council, fascinated by the dark and macabre. Stephen King is her all time inspiration mixed in with a little bit of Eminem and some faint remnants of the works of Edgar Allen Poe. When she began writing, she started in horror but it somehow drifted into thriller. She loves the 1988 movie Heathers. She was born and raised in Michigan but traveled across the country to where she currently resides in Texas.
