The House on Foster Hill by Jaime Jo Wright
This story is told in twi different times, with two different points of view:
Kaine Prescott has lost her husband and has a stalker. She tried to get the police to investigate both more thoroughly, but both have come to dead ends.
After two years, she moved to Wisconsin and bought a house, sight unseen, in her late grandpa’s hometown.
As she fixes the house up, she discovers a dark history and secret surrounding it, connected to a long ago mystery. As Kaine continues investigating will she find the answers or succumb to a past and present killer?
Ivy Thorpe assists her father, the town doctor, in trying to exhume and discover what caused the death of the bodies the police find. The House on Foster Hill has always held bad memories for Ivy, but with the discovery of a dead woman’s body, a baby, and possible serial killer. Will Ivy outsmart the killer, or will she be the next in his deadly list.
Thoughts After Reading:
It was good with great characters but the present day reveal was disappointing.
I expected more from the novel than the obvious and chunkily thrown in villain.
I really enjoyed how the author switched back and forth between the ’60s with Ivy and the present day with Kaine. This back and forth was extremely interesting, captured your attention, and made you want to find out what happened next.
