I obtained a mobi.file copy of this book from the author in connection to a RaffleCopter giveaway on FaceBook and the following is my honest opinion of it.
Reading this book I couldn’t help but wonder how much of the author, Molly Greene, is actually in the protagonist, Madison Boone. Both are involved in the real estate industry and both are house flippers. While both do it for the fun, self-gratification and additional income; when it came to Madison and the Blackburne house, she bought it because she finally found a home she could call her own, especially since she rarely stayed in any one place long enough to put down roots ever since her parents had died.
Little did Madison know when she and her three friends would start renovating this house which had remained empty since the owners had died several years before that things would begin to happen. No sooner did the renovation begin than the walls of the house began to slowly reveal its secrets, like hidden rooms, old keys which didn’t open anything around; it also revealed secrets belonging to a mystery which intrigues Madison enough into wanting to solve it. But unfortunately by doing so, it would put her life and those of her friends in serious danger.
I found the writing captivating, but there appears to be an abundance of friends who I felt didn’t really do anything until the end of the story when the solution to the mystery was at hand. Giving us the back story concerning the previous owners of the house I feel has added value to the understanding of the present day mystery which is confronting the protagonist.
For writing a story from a realtor’s/author’s mind fantasizing about an old house she’s just sold and the unknown secrets it might have contained, I’m giving Ms. Greene 5 STARS.
