My Review

4/5 Stars

Financial struggles are a devil. When her grandmother encounters them, it means she’ll have to consider letting her farm go. Nastassia has always loved her grandmother’s farm so when Christmas comes, she looks forward to spending possibly her last holiday season there. That’s when she meets Jesse and things start to pick up between the two of them. Then, they find a body in the woods.

Jesse and Nastassia were solid characters. Each of them does not know much about their family histories, and the way that their learning the truth mixed into the plot made a fascinating, suspenseful tale. Romance mixed with mystery mixed with suspense, Jordan Elizabeth has created another story that’s easy to get lost in.

Narration was okay.

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.
