Hi everyone. It’s been quite awhile since I’ve posted. Life got hectic again, but I’m here to post a mini review of a book I just finished and really enjoyed.
Girl at the Grave by Teri Bailey Black
Valentine has spent years trying to outrun her mother’s legacy. But small towns have long memories, and when a new string of murders occurs, all signs point to the daughter of a murderer.
Only one person believes Valentine is innocent—Rowan Blackshaw, the son of the man her mother killed all those years ago. Valentine vows to find the real killer, but when she finally uncovers the horrifying truth, she must choose to face her own dark secrets, even if it means losing Rowan in the end.
The book started a bit slow for me, but it really picked up steam as I progressed. I loved the main character Valentine. She was strong, independent, kind, but also had her flaws. The characters of Rowan & Sam were both well developed and added so much to the story. I’m not a huge fan of love triangles, and at times was frustrated with this one, but I like how everything was explained in the end. The mysteries of what happened in Feavers Crossing (both past and present) really kept me hooked. While I was able to figure who committed one of the bigger mysteries, I would never have guessed why. I loved the twists and turns this story took as well as the setting. If a second book was ever written, I’d definitely purchase it.
