Very nice review. I liked the layering of the different family paraphernalia mixed with the main theme of the story. Would really love to read this book.

This sounds like the perfect book for me! Who doesn't love a good mystery? And the Ireland element makes it all the more intriguing. I'm usually wary about reading books in a series out of order, but it's good to know that this one stands on its own. I wonder if I should start with the first book, or dive right into this one? Thank you so much for your review...I'm adding this one to my shelves right now!

Sounds interesting and exciting. I do love a good thriller. I love that the child is so well depicted and not just a child in the backdrop. Thank you for your thorough review! I will be checking this one out.

That seems like a lot of people to bring on a romantic trip with her husband. Also she has a battery pack agenda. Still sounds very interesting with a great review! :tiphat:

Aww. This sounds like an adorable book. Hillary's search for more knowledge about her family and the mystery involved makes it sound even more appealling and I like the inclusion of the daughter.

I like your review, sadly I do not personally have an interest in this kind of book, but that doesn't mean others wont. It is just not my cup of tea.

I have always wanted to visit Ireland and it sounds like this book would be a fun read. I’m glad it can be red as a stand alone but I may have to get the whole series if I like this one 😕

That was a well written review! The book definitely sounds very interesting and engaging. I liked the fact that the book can be read stand-alone even though it is a part of a trilogy. The family drama and the mystery revelations evoke lot of interest to the reader. Thank you again for an in-depth analysis.

The book seems an interesting one to read. But will Hillary discover the hidden deep secrets? I love the review because it is well written and informative in a way that the reader has a clear view of what they are going to read.

The book certainly gives one the picture of a mild horror movie. The aspect of dark family secrets popping up also makes it more interesting. Would love to read this book. A wonderful review.
