Did you happen to join the Facebook Live event to watch the Christy Awards this week? Or were you luck enough to attend the event live? This week I decided to feature one of the winners:
Death had a way of creeping up on a soul, and Ivy Thorpe was determined that when it visited her, she would not be surprised.
I don’t know about you, but that first line sure sounds intriguing! I admit I haven’t read this story yet, however I DID read her book The Reckoning at Gossamer Pond and loved it so this one is definitely on my TBR! Congratulations to Jaime Jo Wright on winning the award for Mystery/Suspense/Thriller!
About the Book:
Kaine Prescott is no stranger to death. When her husband died two years ago, her pleas for further investigation into his suspicious death fell on deaf ears. In desperate need of a fresh start, Kaine purchases an old house sight unseen in her grandfather’s Wisconsin hometown. But one look at the eerie, abandoned house immediately leaves her questioning her rash decision. And when the house’s dark history comes back with a vengeance, Kaine is forced to face the terrifying realization she has nowhere left to hide.
A century earlier, the house on Foster Hill holds nothing but painful memories for Ivy Thorpe. When an unidentified woman is found dead on the property, Ivy is compelled to discover her identity. Ivy’s search leads her into dangerous waters and, even as she works together with a man from her past, can she unravel the mystery before any other lives–
including her own–are lost?
