    Widowed single mother Blythe moves back to the small town where she was raised Crenshaw Alabama with her four year old daughter Maddie Soon after Maddie starts having night terrors and Blythe begins to think that Maddie is being haunted by the ghost of a young girl who was murdered in this town twenty five years ago whose murder still remains unsolved and whose murderer may still be living in this very townThis was a really entertaining romantic suspense story with some very atmospheric and spooky suspense The romance was barely there in this one but that didn't bother me at all since the suspense part was interesting to me I also liked the paranormal element with the possibility of a ghostly presence trying to get some justice

    I give this 3 stars simply because I enjoyed reading it for the most part the action moved uickly and I really feared for the safety of the little girl A review earlier mentioned that the mother fell to pieces and wasn't exactly rational anytime her child went missing I actually feel that that is probably realistic I'm a mother and I can't stand to even think about how I would feel in such a horrible situation I also thought it was awesome that it skipped the reuisite sex scene The couple barely kissed before the end of the novel I've said before I don't mind sex in my readings but I did like that this was a change from the norm Now the reasons that I only gave this book a reluctant three stars is because the writing was terrible Fractions of sentences fragments of thoughtsugh Several paragraphs I had to re read because the sentences weren't making sense to me The hero was kind of boring He seemed to fit right along was every other monthly romance hero And the worst thing of all is that I figured out the killer immediately Some suspensethrillers have an overwhelming amount of potential suspects but this one had maybe two Midway through the book I realized that besides the 'hero' the author had only introduced two other characters At one time I wondered if there would be some really great twist where the character turned out to be a woman Um nope The killer turned out to be EXACTLY who I thought it would be out of the only two possible candidates To summarize this book did hold my interest and if the plot of this novel peaks your interest by all means grab a copy But if you read tons of books like this you may want to skip this one because it is mediocre at best

    This book actually surprised me for the good I enjoyed the story and it kept me intrigued with the puzzle of what was going on and who might have killed a little girl years before The only downside was the end I had a semi hard time with the resolution to the mystery it just didn't really work all that well for me and the person who turned out to be the predator did not seem realisticThis was a very minor problem though and for the most part I enjoyed this very much

    Widowed Blythe Wyndham has returned to her hometown with her young daughter Strange things are happening and Blythe starts investigating and learns that a little girl was murdered there many years before One of those romantic thrillersuspense books that really pulled me into the story and kept me to the end

    I wasn’t really impressed I don’t usually like too much imagery because it distracts me from the plot Her writing wasn’t bad but the book failed to keep my interest as it dragged a bit and wasn’t too suspenseful I did finish it to see if it got better for me and it fell flat I will most likely give this author another go though to see if maybe it was just the plot of the book


  6. Teresa Parrish Teresa Parrish says:

    Unlike my Mom who does it sometimes I rarely ever peg the perp in a story before the end I began thinking on one person early in the book I forget where now Then a second person became a possibility However I had the perp pegged right off the first time The first person I suspected I know from reading a few reviews the ending didn't please a some readers For them it was a disappointment Well such is life And art imitates it All too often in real life when a heinous crime is done it's not always who we think may have done it but the one least suspected I liked how the story flowed without an overabundance of background but with just enough that was relevant for the story within the story and for everything else like relationships to make sense For me it worked For me the ending wasn't a disappointment

    What can I say? The story was interesting enough to keep me reading but I doubt I'll be picking up any other books by this author The writing in many places was a big turn off It's often repetitive and there's too many long moments of inward thinking during supposed times of crisis when the pace should have been kept amped up Also why does she get so angry with every uestion the sheriff asks?? He's doing his job lady Anyway like others say the solution of whodunnit is fairly obvious and there really are only two choices and the romance is slim fine with me because the female character was absolutely pathetic over this guyIf you're looking for a uick read during a flight or on the beach this isn't a terrible choice but if you're looking for a nail biting supernatural thriller this isn't it


  8. Laura Guilbault Laura Guilbault says:

    While usually I keep away from this type of book I found the beginning really sucked me in I really liked the style of writing like a cozy fireplace mystery an oldie I got it at a 50 cents book fair so I figured it couldn't hurt to add it to my pile and I'm glad I didMostly a murder mystery with a supernatural twist and a hint of romance I thoroughly enjoyed Bogeyman My only big criticism is the title because it suggested that there would be horror and creepystuff than there really was I never met the Bogeyman that I was expecting and I found the actual murderer slightly predictable especially with all the hintsI wasn't really scared although I was spooked and entertainedFor mature readers 12?

    This novel is one I would highly recommend to those who enjoy sitting in the edge of their chairs I thought many times that I know what was going to happen but something else intense would take place each time This story presents just how deep the love between a mother a young daughter truly is The surprises that await are worth reading


  10. Chana Chana says:

    Light on practicalities and logic just go with it Not heavily populated with characters only two people were the possible suspect imo and yes it was one of them The romance is light which may or not be to the reader's taste The ghost angle didn't seem well thought out But it is a uick read entertaining for a couple of hours
