Hired by a stranger to write his life story, Beth Lambert arrives at a seemingly abandoned house in the hills near her hometown. She knows the rumors, she knows it is dangerous and unwise. But she needs the money. And she needs to prove that it isn’t a mistake to think she can make a career out of a dream.
Inside the house of emptiness and coldness, she finds a man with curt words and haunted eyes. He is eccentric, odd. Brutish, even. He scares her, and he intrigues her. When she learns who he is, she wants to run. But there is the money, and there is the dream, and eventually, there is simply Harrison Caldwell. The haunted man with the black, ugly truth.
After reading the synopsis of this book, I knew I wanted to read it. It screamed original and unique plot. And it definitely was original and unique. The mystery behind what was really going on with Harrison had me intrigued.
Overall, this was a good book. So many people are going to be over the moon about this. Between the slow-moving love interest, the touchy subjects and the plot in general, I can see many raving over this book.
For me, this book moved too slow. I found my mind drifting. I need more moments of excitement or awe to keep my mind focused on the book. Although it is well written and told just how the story should, I needed more. I am not sure what it is it was missing for me. I am used to more fast-paced books. I am totally A.D.D., so I need entertained from start to finish.
