    Courtesy of Readergirl Reviews a Teen Book

    This is the kind of story I really like. It had such an awesome mixture of paranormal, mystery, suspense, and romance in it. It held my attention from the very first page. I've always been a fan of Elizabeth Chandler's Dark Secrets stories, and this was a great addition to the list.

    Anna was one of my favorite characters of Chandler's so far. She was so smart and resourceful. She's on her own throughout the story, and when she arrives at her aunt and uncle's house, she really just takes charge and starts investigating the murder. Her ability to logic her way through the clues and find herself pretty close to the answer was awesome! I love to see a smart teenage heroine like this.

    I really loved Zach as well. He was such a mystery at first. Is he on her side? Is he hiding something? These questions gave him a really interesting dark side that we had to work our way through. But I loved the romance between these two.

    I wasn't really expecting the murderer to be who it turned out to be. So that was a nice surprise, that the author was able to keep us guessing, but at the same time, I could easily look back through the story and recognize clues where Chandler had dropped us some hints along the way.

    This was a great suspenseful story, and I really enjoyed it. I'm hoping that Chandler will be coming out with some more Dark Secrets stories in future. I highly recommend this one.

    Read this!!!

    Elizabeth Chandler captures you interest in the beginning with the main character, Anna trying to piece together what exactly happened. As she begins to discover things the story twists and turns even more. Its a page turning thriller that will keep you guessing until the very end.

    Yep, It's Awesome!

    I have never read anything else by Elizabeth Chandler, so I had nothing to really go on in terms of the authors writing, but I was happily surprised when this book sucked me in! It is definitely a mystery as Anna, an adopted seventeen year old, drives to Wisteria where she is supposed to meet her Uncle Will as he wants to tell her something important about her real family. Once she arrives at the O'Neil house she finds her crazy Aunt Iris the only one in residence. It seems that her Uncle was murdered just a little while before Anna made her trip to see him. But was it a juvenile prank gone wrong by the local popular teens, or was it the work of someone far more sinister? Anna knows there is no way she can go home right then until she figures out what happened to her Uncle, what to do with Aunt Iris, what secrets is the cute boy next door hiding, what was it that her Uncle wanted to talk to her about, and what is up with these crazy visions she's been having?! The Back Door of Midnight was such a good read with all the right elements, and I'll definitely be reading more works by this author!
