    Interesting Read

    I was captivated by the cover design of this book (unfortunately, I regularly do judge books by their covers), then intrigued by the synopsis. It was a totally random find and looked like a good, spooky, thriller for summer reading. The beginning was a bit rough for me. Mostly, the writing style irritated me and I found the dialogue to be mundane. But I read on, interested in figuring out the answer to the mystery, and as I did, the writing became less bothersome (I guess I got used to it), and I was pleasantly surprised to see how well the author gave different voices to his characters. That southern dialect took some adjusting for me...

    Regarding the story... I didn't think it was as scary as some other reviewers thought, and I'm a big-old wimp when it comes to things that go 'bump' in the night. I was a tad disappointed with the ending. All that build up to the inevitable answer and I thought it fell a bit flat. However, I think it's true-to-form for stories of this sort, and so it didn't bother me much. I also had it figured out, for the most part, half way into the book.

    All in all, I found it to be entertaining and interesting. It was an easy read, didn't take too long to get through and it held my interest.

    A Mystery Ghost Story

    If you are looking for a ghost story, Firefly Rain might just be your pick. This tale weaves into Jacob's life and in a way it is more about finding out who he is as well as what is haunting him. The book moves along at a good clip and builds suspense. You have to keep reading just to see what is really going on, who are holding the secrets and who is really on his side and why. There are a few intense scenes and nothing too gory. I didn't find it too scary, but felt it is more like a good mystery with ghosts on the side.
    I give this book 3 1/2 stars. The book is a bit predictable in parts, but does have an ending I didn't expect but would have liked a bit more suspense building up to it. However, it is a enjoyable read and I would recommend it to someone looking for an interesting take on a ghost story.
