Happy 2018! AND I didn’t expect that this my first read of the year!
Some deaths live on forever
For as long as it has stood overlooking New England’s jagged coastline, Lexington House has been the witness to madness…and murder. But in recent years the inexplicable malice that once tormented so many has lain as silent as its victims. Until now…
A member of the nation’s foremost paranormal forensic team, Jenna Duffy has made a career out of investigating the inexplicable. Yet nothing could prepare her for the string of slayings once again plaguing Lexington House—or for the chief suspect, a boy barely old enough to drive, much less kill.
With the young man’s life on the line, Jenna must team up with attorney Samuel Hall to pinpoint who—or what—is taking the lives of those who get too close to the past. But everything they learn brings them closer to the forces of evil stalking this tortured ground.
I wanted to like this book. REALLY. But I’m taken aback by Jenna’s character.
I didn’t really know much about her character’s trait since all the previous books are mostly concentrate the main characters. But as a Registered Nurse and a qualified FBI Agent, she seems more like a weak wallflower.
And why would I say that????
There’s a part where she’s being slapped. Yes, SLAPPED by the city Councilman’s wife. And she didn’t do anything. Instead, she apologized to the wife and walked away. Assault a federal agent and the wife get to walk away just like that???
Samuel Hall. The first witness who come across the ‘suspect’ when he saw the teenager standing naked with blood all over him. He’s being ‘cajoled’ in helping the teenager since the teenager’s Doctor aka Jenna’s uncle believe the teenager is innocent.
DO I like his character? So-so. Especially when he knows where Jenna’s FBI team comes from. AND he thinks that she’s looney.
AS for the plot? I didn’t expect the outcome turn out like that. As IN, I didn’t expect that. I do enjoy the story but not that much with Jenna’s way of handling things.
SO what’s your Goodreads goal for 2018?
