The House on Foster Hill - Book Review

Before I jump into this book review
I wanted to let you know that I will be back to blogging next week.
I can't wait to catch up with all of you 
as I have missed your blog posts, visits, and comments.
Before I return next week I have several book reviews that I must publish
so please enjoy reading them over the next few days.
January is a perfect month for reading, right?

Until then. . . 
know that you are thought of!

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
WOW! And just to be clear, WOW!
You can see on the front cover what Colleen Coble said,
"This novel is spellbinding and unputdownable."
Her words are accurate and on point.
I am amazed that The Hill on Foster Hill is Jaime's debut novel
because it is a work of art.
This fabulous author outdid herself and it's with great anticipation 
that I look forward to her next novel.

The Hill on Foster Hill is set between two time lines.
In 1906, the reader will follow Ivy and will read of her determination 
to bring justice and life to the memory of "Gabriella," 
the nameless young woman found dead in her hometown.
The story also follows Kaine, 
a young woman haunted by the death of her husband. . .
and something else.
Though centuries separate these two women 
their stories are interwoven together.
Through their stories the reader will be taken on a suspenseful journey
filled with shocking and heart-breaking moments.
And through the two of them maybe justice and hope can be served
to a beautiful, nameless woman.

The Hill on Foster Hill is an intense mystery
that will surely keep fans of this kind of genre rooted to their seats.
The author does an amazing joy of keeping the story real.
The suspense is chilling. . .
the pain comes through crystal clear. . .
the romance is tender. . .
the healing brings hope. . .
and the faith leaves the reader thanking the Lord for all things.

A remarkable story written by a very talented author.
The House on Foster Hill is a book I recommend to an older audience.
4.5 stars!

Sounds like a great book. You got me hooked I will be visiting Amazon today. Looking forward to seeing more reviews. It's getting harder to find good reads and without all the sex.
Glad we will be seeing more of you. I have been MIA for about 6 months and glad to be back as well.

Sounds like a great book! I love those kinds, where I can't put them down, although I tend to stay up half the night reading! I've missed your blog posts and your lovely tutorials and shares of the things you make! I look forward to seeing you here again soon. I've recommended several people to your Etsy shop as I love it so much! Hugs... Marilyn
