Addison Harmon has just learned that she inherited a house from her biological mother who she never knew.She, along with her best friend Vera decide to take a trip out there to see the house. Addison has no idea what is about to happen.All she knows right now is that she needs to decide what to do with the house.When she arrives at the house,strange things start happening.She meets the very sexy Kace Sullivan who seems to know more about this house than she does. Addison is not sure that she wants to know about the secrets this house holds within it.

Disclaimer: I received this e-book in exchange for an honest review.

I wasn’t sure how I would feel about this one because it looked so good. I was afraid that my expectations wouldn’t be met and I would have to chuck the e-book aside (very hard to do unless I want to hurt my Kindle) Thankfully I didn’t need to worry because I loved it and was very glad that I had gotten this book.

A lot of the book reminded me so much of Charmed and I LOVED that TV series so much. Addison was awesome. I could see the progression from being curious of the house to almost afraid of it by the end because she still didn’t quite understand what was going on. She was just hoping that all this creepy stuff was actually going on and that she wasn’t simply going crazy.

Vera bored me.We really didn’t get to know her very well and I was really peeved at her running out on Addison because she was scared. I believe she should have stayed and supported her best friend. Especially given the fact that Addison wanted her there.That should have trumped fear.

Oh Kace, I’m pretty sure he earned his spot as my number one book boyfriend. He was so dreamy and usually I don’t use those words to describe a man but wow, I loved him. I loved how he comforted Addison when she was scared. I loved how he provided her with information instead of hiding it.

I have a soft spot for cats so of course I have to mention adorable Binks. I knew there was something weird about him from the beginning. I wasn’t sure exactly what it was until it was explained in the book.

Oh Admer,another character that I loved. I knew that there was something strange about him from the beginning and I’m still a little irked that we didn’t know what was up with him until practically the end. Like Addison,I think he definitely knows more than he told her initially and I’m hopeful that he’ll give Addison the full story in the upcoming second book.

Editing-wise,very well done. I didn’t have any issues with the pacing or grammar,spelling or anything else. I just didn’t want to put the book down at all. The book kept me hooked throughout the whole thing.

I am giving this book 4 stars mainly because I don’t feel like I got to know Theo or Callie that well. If they are going to be important characters in the next book,I’m hoping that we’ll get to know them better.Aside from that small character development issue,I adored this book so much.

  1. Ooh Charmed was an awesome show I watched the whole series back to back a few years ago! I love how a cat is a character in this book! haha. I also never read anything by Jennifer Snyder but I keep seeing her name she seems like an author I should check out!


  2. I had never even heard her name until I got this book for review. It's kind of weird because she has the same name as my brother's former teacher.I would definitely recommend this book.
