Review of Girl at the Grave
Review (5 Stars): This book was amazing!!! The perfect amount of suspense in creepy locale that I couldn’t get enough of. Valentine has been hiding in the shadows since that fateful night when her mother killed Mr. Blackshaw right before her very eyes. When a new string of murders occur in this sleepy town, everyone starts to point their finger at Valentine and she needs to find the real killer before it is too late.
I loved Girl at the Grave because it had everything for me. A dark, creepy location, mysterious characters and a heroine that you instantly connect with. I enjoyed figuring out the clues right along with Valentine as she put together the pieces of what happened that fateful night and the truth has consequences for them all. Perfect mystery for Halloween.
