Outstanding Debut Novel from an Author to Watch
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?
**I received a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review. All opinions expressed are my own.**
It’s so exciting when I finish a book that I can just gush about! The House on Foster Hill is just such a book. The novel is certainly pretty dark where Christian fiction is concerned, but my goodness! I couldn’t help but keep turning pages.
The House on Foster Hill connects a contemporary story with a historical mystery. Both stories are connected in sinister ways that ooze with mystery and sprinkled with a healthy does of suspense. It made this a hard to put down book and a fast read all at once. The characters are lively and interesting and the pieces of the puzzle come together deliciously slow.
If you enjoyed suspense, historical, and contemporary… I can’t recommend this novel enough! After all, it combines all three. But in spite of my excitement for this novel, I must add a reminder that some of the subject matter of this book could be troublesome for some individuals who consider themselves more sensitive readers.
