Hazel Winslow is seventeen years old and already has more secrets to keep than she would like. Hopefully soon she will be putting the tourist trap of a town she lives in behind her along with the unhappy past.

Until everyone in town starts acting strangely.  As the town is cut off from help long festering lies and hatred end up exploding into terrifying violence. An unexplainable madness is gripping the remote mountain town. The only way Hazel is going to be able to save any lives is by confronting her own past and the dark history of her town. Whatever the cost may be.

This is a suspenseful story with some romance. The plot of this one takes some fantastic twists and turns and will have readers guessing just what is going to happen next and who will be the next to be affected. The story line builds the suspense and doesn’t stop until the end when everything is revealed. The character are fascinating and seeing how each one reacts to what is happing in the small town makes for very interesting reading. With the heroine being a teenager this is for young adults but anyone would find the plot line entertaining and will be pulled into the story and readers will keep turning the pages just to see where it will all end. This is one suspense not to miss. Readers will not be disappointed with this one at all.

I give this one 4-1/2 red roses
