Savannah Harris vowed to leave behind her old life as an intrepid investigative reporter. But when a friend raises suspicions about two migrant workers who’ve gone missing from the sleepy coastal town Savannah calls home, her curiosity spikes.
As ever more eerie incidents begin afflicting the area, each works to draw Savannah out of her seclusion and raise the stakes—for both Savannah and the surrounding community. Even as Savannah’s new boarder, Clive Miller, makes her feel things she thought long forgotten, she suspects he’s hiding something too, and he’s not the only one. Doubts collide in Savannah’s mind: Who can she really trust?
As secrets emerge and danger closes in, Savannah must choose between faith and uncertainty. One wrong decision might spell the end…not just for her, but for everyone around her.
Will she unravel the mystery in time, or will doubt get the best of her?
An enthralling romantic suspense that kept me riveted. Savannah is at such a crossroads in her life. Her grief and guilt has kept her frozen in the past. As far as she's concerned there is no future and all she can hope for of the present is to get through it one day at a time. Not an auspicious headspace to be in when she finds herself reluctantly thrust into a sinister mystery. It's almost like watching Sleeping Beauty wake up. Savannah's protective façade is slowly chipped away and as the story -- and the suspense -- continues, she comes back to life. Very powerful stuff.
And for Savannah, part of the mystery is her unexpected and secretive boarder. Trust doesn't come easily as doubts continue to cloud her mind. But there's no denying that Clive Miller is waking up emotions she never thought, or wanted, to feel again. Another fairy tale quality to the story and a deliciously edgy way to approach a romance.
The plot is made even more sinister by the snippets of the villain's POV. I was sure Barritt was leaving me hints but I remained clueless until the very end. Oh, I had suspicions, but I wasn't sure of any of the secondary characters as the story progressed. Every one seemed suspect. Cagey. Running their own agenda. A truly mesmerizing read.
