I was so excited to pick this book up! It's been an anticipated release of mine ever since I read the synopsis. Also this cover is to die for! This book had a perfect spooky small town vibe. The writing was beautifully well done and kept me turning the pages. I never saw any of the plot twists coming and was surprised each time. I just had to know what was going to happen next! I enjoyed every moment reading it, even the slower sections were very entertaining. I also really liked all of the characters, especially Ellerie, our strong female protagonist. She was incredibly brave, selfless, and caring, all things I love to see in main characters. I also felt that all of the side characters were well developed, like Ellerie's siblings and the other residents of the town. The town itself felt very real as there was a deep history described throughout the book. We got to see so many stories and myths about the town sprinkled within the plot. Even though so many thrilling and sometimes scary things happened in this book, the romance was also very well done. It felt very real and was something I loved about this book! Our love interest is super romantic and is a new bookish boyfriend of mine! The ending was well done and satisfying. But I loved the characters so much I wanted to hear more!
This book is perfect for those bookworms who loved books like Little House on the Prairie and Anne of Green Gables but want a thrilling and spooky twist! I gave this book 4.5/5 Stars.
