There is nothing can beat a ghost story and this one my friend had it own vibes. I get an e-copy of this book from NetGalley in exchange for a honest review.
Death is cold.
Kelsea Stone can’t remember her childhood, and frankly, she doesn’t really care. She’s doing fine on her own in L.A. without any family to tie her down. But when she finds out her estranged birth parents have died and left her their house in Canaan Valley, West Virginia, she discovers more than just an inheritance waiting for her in the mountains. An angry presence lingers there, and it won’t rest until it has had its revenge.
I expect for a goosebumps or a good plot twist the moment I saw this book cover. A pale girl in front of a big house, why not? And I’m glad on how much the plot glued me to the end.
The book was about Kelsie Stone who discovered her parents that sent her away long ago was found dead and she was the sole heir to their big house. She expect a lot of money to get by selling the house but not that she know she may embark some ghostly adventure.
For me, I love how Timothy arrange the plot, it was a usual and straight to the point kind of plot where you’ll enjoy every thrill in every words. You’ll say to yourself ‘okay whats next?’ in every chapter’s end (cause that what I felt).
As the plot goes, the author began to add characters and sometimes its hard for me to detect which one is dead people or a living person. This place kind of setting is that everyone seems ‘okay’ by seeing a ghost, its like seeing a living people doing things like that.
Whats the story features
The story features curiosity, a mystery to solve and an ancient revenge.
The ending was a lil bit cliche, because they are not really much character in this novel that will not make me guess the real culprit for all the killing thing. I wish the plot will be plotted much neater so reader can enjoy the benefit of doubt even longer until the real plot twist.
Most of all I still glued to the book till its end. 😀
