The House on Foster Hill ~ Review

The House on Foster Hill
By Jaime Jo Wright

Kaine Prescott needed a new beginning and she needed to get away from the person she knows killed her husband. Leaving San Diego behind Oakwood, Wisconsin seemed to be the perfect solution. Unfortunately for her, the house on Foster Hill has a history that is anything but peaceful and it is about to let Kaine in on dark history - a history that she understands all too well.

More than one hundred years ago the body of a young woman was found on the property of Foster Hill. Ivy Thorpe is determined to find justice for this young victim and her identity. But the clues are few and Ivy is out of her element especially when she is faced with the return of Joel Cunningham. Not only did Joel break her heart years ago he is now working the case that Ivy wants to solve.

As the past and present come together it soon becomes evident that someone is determined to keep the secrets that the house on Foster Hill hides buried forever. And anyone seeking to unearth the truth is their life in danger...

The House on Foster Hill is truly a book that the reader will be unable to put down. The story alternates between the past and the present as the mystery that draws these two women together moves to its climax. And the outcome is kept in doubt up to the end - who lives - who dies - who is the murderer - only time and reading will tell. The crime is dark but those who have determined to bring justice to the victims are searching for a light that is greater than that which is surrounding them and with the help of others they just might find it.

I have to be honest the cover really drew me even before I read the description. And then at the description, I was like, "Oh, yeah, I need to read this book." And believe me, it is worth the time spent reading through these pages. Fans of suspense and romance will enjoy this one. If you tend towards historical or contemporary fiction this book has you covered as both are presented in this book. An altogether attention-grabbing book that tackles some tough issues.

I was provided a review copy of this book by the publisher with no expectation of a positive review - all opinions expressed are my own.


About the Book:
Kaine Prescott is no stranger to death. When her husband died two years ago, her pleas for further investigation into his suspicious demise 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, resurrecting painful memories and forcing a reunion with the man who broke her heart. Can Ivy unravel the mystery and find a renewed hope before any other lives--including her own--are lost?
