This book follows Tessa as she comes home to Bramble Hill after the death of her beloved Aunt. From the time she sets foot back home, mysterious things begin happening. Are the land and house haunted or is something else going on? The first word that comes to my mind when I think about this book is MYSTERIOUS. The whole story is shrouded in mystery. From the characters to the land and house, to the unusual happenings. It really is a story that grabs the reader. I really enjoyed this book. It was written well and kept me deeply enthralled from beginning to end. The characters were easy to love and hate, the story was scary and mysterious, and it told a great tale. The ending was a great mystery and was one I did not see coming. The talent of this author was very clear in this story and I hope to read more from her in the future.
