Overall, this was a beautifully written book. I look forward to reading the second book and other books by this author & would def recommend this book to my friends.

I really liked this story. This was the author’s first book and the first book in the Lakewood series. The beginning of the story is with Evelyn starting school and trying to stabilize her life. Her parents have recently died and shes been depressed. As the story progresses she meets Jared and a few other friends and stumbles upon a massive mystery.

From what I understand, this book was written originally in German. Also, the setting is in the UK. Those two factors contribute to a slightly unique language style. I personally find the wording and descriptions to be charming, though i’ve read a bunch of negative opinions on it. I judge books purely on the story idea and how enjoyable i find it & I found this book to be completely enjoyable.

My favorite part of the story was the paranormal mystery parts. I have read a few other books with a slightly similar paranormal aspects…and i enjoyed them all. I also liked the descriptive characters. I like Jared ( he was awesome) and disliked Felix (scum of the earth! lol)…but they were both written well and were believable. I liked Evelyn ok, but felt she could be more confident. The setting was beautiful too. I love reading books in the UK…though i haven’t read many.

Overall, this was a beautifully written book. Some parts were very suspenseful and some others were just sweet. I look forward to reading the second book and other books by this author. I am also considering reading the German version so i can compare. I rate this book 4 out of 5 stars and would def recommend this book to my friends.

I'm an avid reader and love most all books, but my favorite genres tend to be mystery, adventure, science fiction and classics. Genres I tend to shy away from include romance, contemporary fiction and chick lit. If I’m not actually reading books, I’m probably at work shelving them at my local library.
