Kaine Prescott is no stranger to death. When her husband died two years ago, her pleas for further investigation into his suspicious death fell on deaf ears. In desperate need of a fresh start, Kaine purchases an old house sight unseen in her grandfather’s Wisconsin hometown. But one look at the eerie, abandoned house immediately leaves her questioning her rash decision. And when the house’s dark history comes back with a vengeance, Kaine is forced to face the terrifying realization she has nowhere left to hide.
A century earlier, the house on Foster Hill holds nothing but painful memories for Ivy Thorpe. When an unidentified woman is found dead on the property, Ivy is compelled to discover her identity. Ivy’s search leads her into dangerous waters and, even as she works together with a man from her past, can she unravel the mystery before any other lives–including her own–are lost?
My Thoughts On The Book
The story is told from two different time periods by two different women connected by Foster House 100 years apart. Ivy in the past, who is helping to investigate a mysterious death and Kaine in the present, who is running from her past.
The two women’s tales intertwine as mysteries surrounding both of their lives unfold and lead them into danger. Their love and faith will be tested as they discover the secrets of Foster Hill.
The chapter switches between Kaine and Ivy were done really well and easy to follow and both women are very likeable and believable and the fact that you really don’t know the connections until the very end. It isn’t often that you find a book that you can’t figure out and the suspect takes you completely by surprise.
Although it is a Christian novel, it wasn’t too heavy on the religion aspect but hope and faith in God is a big part of the storyline but not pressed too much to put non religious readers off.
The House on Foster Hill has everything, suspense, intrigue, mystery, romance, and history and it certainly keeps you turning the pages as fast as you can.
I will definitely be looking forward to more from Jaime Jo Wright in the future.
