Quiet seventeen-year-old Elizabeth Parker is looking forward to another mellow summer with her goofy relatives, sun tanning at the beach and staying out of trouble. Which is why the thought of her younger cousin participating in what is, clearly, a setup disguised as an initiation, worries her to the point of intervention.
One that backfires … big time …
Mistaken for her cousin, Elizabeth finds herself transported to an abandoned plantation, a place deeply haunted with unresolved mystery and where horror reigns every summer between July 20 and August 13.
It is there, locked in the pitch dark, where she finds herself paired with the strange and mysterious Adam Hunt—an unexpected trespasser with his own agenda. Together, they find a list of instructions—follow the clues to various possessions in the house, store them in the backpack provided, and find the key that will grant escape.
Having snuck in to document the haunting, Adam offers to help her find the key so long as she helps him record paranormal activity along the way. But as they make their way through the house, they soon discover unexplained anomalies …
For the first time in the plantation's recorded history, the haunting deviates from its known cycle of events, thrusting Elizabeth and Adam in a series of perilous circumstances that ensue long after the night is over.
As the last day of the haunting draws nearer, and as forces beyond their control ignite their growing attraction, Elizabeth and Adam must work together to uncover the plantation's mysterious past before its too late.
Or die trying.

This wasn't at all what I expected. Honestly the cover is rather misleading, as this is really more of a gothic mystery than a ya fantasy romance, but I do understand the imagery better having read the entire tale. Although at times I was completely perplexed, it was quite intentional on the author's part and served as another way to immerse the reader in the warping of surroundings much like what you'd experience actually being in a haunted house. I nearly had my own anxiety attack this sucker was so intense at times- truly what you'd call a nail-biting experience. I definitely recommend this for older readers, say 17 and up as there is a bit of language that some might find unsavory for the younger folk. Doesn't bother me none, but of course I'm not everyone so there ya go. I would absolutely read more from this author- her style is very unique and engrossing.
I thoroughly enjoyed this book!! Loved the characters Adam and Elizabeth and look forward to the next series. The book was suspenseful and each page made you want more. I totally recommend this book. “I received an ARC in exchange for an honest review."
Great read for young adults and all of us adults who still love to read YA Novels. A new love story that will keep you invested in the characters even after the story ends. (Thank god there's a sequel!) The haunting at the plantation part of the book was filled with suspense that made it hard for me to put the book down, even when I had to be up early for work. I am glad I read Intertwined and highly recommend it! “I received an ARC in exchange for my honest, unbiased review."
