GENRE: MYSTERY, THRILLER, & SUSPENSE
LENGTH: 248 pages
FORMAT: EBOOK, PAPERBACK, AUDIBLE
Tara and her brother Kyle are sent to stay with their estranged grandparents when their mother is hospitalised. May and Peter Folcroft are warm and charming at first, and the house, hidden in the base of the mountains, seems idyllic. But strange things start happening. The swing moves on its own. Peter paces around the house at night and is obsessed with the lake where his sister drowned. Doors slam. Indistinct figures glide through the fog. When a storm cuts the phone line and blocks the only road to town, May shifts from doting to obsessive. Tara and Kyle try to keep up the pretext of a happy family, but an empty journal and locked room provide clues to the unforgivable lies, secrets and decades-old murders entwined with the Folcrofts’ history. Worse, the ghosts are growing agitated. Tara must confront the restless spirits if she and her brother have any hope of leaving the house alive.
FIVE BOUNDLESS STARS
Tara and Kyle go to stay with their grandparents after their mom is in an accident. These grandparents are ones they know nothing about and have never met. When things begin to happen in and near the house they begin to become suspicious and begin to question who they are really staying with. When the truth comes out the word family will never mean the same again.
This book was hauntingly good. It is a very well written mystery that kept me deeply enthralled. I felt for these kids as they deal with the loss of their mother while she is sick and when they begin experiencing strange things with their grandparents.
This book was not the first I have read by Darcy Coates and it will not be the last. Each new book I read makes me more of a fan than I was before.
