Location: FIC YOU
Genre: Crime- Mystery- Thriller -Gothic


"Awesome, Awesome, Awesome!!!!
I really enjoyed reading this book. It was pretty spooky at times. There was actually a couple of times that I actually got chills. That's a great thing!"- Susan


Soon after the death of her young son, main character Charlie Cates starts having dreams of children coming to her for help. One such dream leads her to the swamps of Louisiana, where she gets entangled in a decades-old cold case of a missing child from a wealthy and powerful family.

This book is the perfect blend of mystery, suspense, and romance, with a touch of the paranormal. Charlie is a sympathetic character as a grieving mother determined to do right by her son and help others. My heart broke for her. The mystery was so intriguing – hard to put down, for sure. I will say that I was able to figure out some parts of this multi-layered mystery, but others were quite a surprise. Lots of dark & twisty goodness here. Maybe not everything that happened was plausible, but overall this book was a darn good read. - Book of Secrets
