ABOUT THE BOOK:
What if everything you knew about the people you loved was a lie?
After the death of their absentee father, Aaron and Bridge Quinlan travel to a vast rainforest property in the Pacific Northwest to hear the reading of his will. There, they meet up with their mother and troubled sister, Franny, and are shocked to discover the will’s terms: in order to claim their inheritance they must remain at the estate for thirty days without any contact with the outside world. Despite their concerns, they agree.
The Quinlans soon come to learn their family has more secrets than they ever imagined—revelations that at first inspire curiosity, then fear. Why does Bridge have faint memories of the estate? Why did their father want them to be sequestered there together? And what is out there they feel pulling them into the dark heart of the woods?
This book was so intriguing from the very beginning. I loved the twisty, edgy, secretive nature of the book as it sucks you into the mystery. I also loved the creepy, edgy, almost supernatural vibe to the book.
I enjoyed reading about Aaron and his younger sister Bridge. Despite being years apart in their age difference, they still had a fun-loving and close relationship and I found it very endearing and fun to read about. Aaron was very fond of his younger sister, and her of him. Their family was full of secrets and mystery especially their father, now deceased. Growing up he didn’t provide them with much attention or affection and he was pretty much as mystery to his entire family – his wife and children.
When the Quinlan’s arrive at the property in the Pacific Northwest, they are shocked to learn of the terms and conditions of their father’s will. In a novel where nothing is always as it seems, and shocking revelation after revelation, you will find yourself wanting to know more as you read along through the chapters.
I enjoyed this book and was shocked at the ending. It wasn’t what I was expecting and I loved that!
MY RATING: 4/5 stars
