The House on Foster Hill by Jaime Jo Wright


Summary:

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?

My Thoughts:

If the cover of this book doesn’t suck you into this story, you might be crazy.  I have been anxiously waiting for this book to release ever since I laid eyes on this cover.  I know, I know, you shouldn’t judge a book by it’s cover, however I think a fabulous cover can absolutely help entice a reader into grabbing a book and diving in.  Another reason for my anticipation is that I love historical fiction and I love mystery.  This book ticks all the boxes for me!  A split time novel, full of mystery, suspense and so many chilling scenes that will keep you on the edge of your seat.  The actual mystery in this book really had me intrigued, guessing, and turning the pages to find the answers.  I do have to say that I preferred Ivy’s parts of the book, mainly because I love all things historical fiction.  Joel was my fave.  The backstory between he and Ivy added depth and aunthenticity to their relationship. The conclusion of the mystery was chilling and shocking, I was more than satisfied!  I would definitely reccomend this book if you enjoy historical fiction with suspense or mystery!
