Where secrets make their home…
Stopping to help a motorist in trouble, Katie Lynch stumbles upon a mystery as elusive as the Mothman legend that haunts her hometown of Point Pleasant, West Virginia. Could the coded message she finds herald an extraterrestrial visitor? According to locals, it wouldn’t be the first time. And what sense should she make of her young son’s sudden spate of bizarre drawings—and his claim of a late-night visitation? Determined to uncover the truth, Katie only breaks the surface when a new threat erupts. Suddenly her long-gone ex-boyfriend is back and it’s as if he’s under someone else’s control. Not only is he half-crazed, he’s intent on murder….
As a sergeant in the sheriff’s office of the famously uncanny Point Pleasant, Officer Ryan Flynn has learned to tolerate reports of puzzling paranormal events. But single mom Katie Lynch appears to be in very real danger—and somehow Ryan’s own brother, Caden, is caught up in the madness, too. What the skeptical lawman discovers astounds him—and sends him into action. For stopping whatever evil forces are at play may just keep Katie and Caden alive….
I read A Thousand Yesteryears a while back and found it to be an OK book although predictable. So, I was curious to see how the next book in the series would be. Unfortunately, the storyline in this book was not especially memorable. It's for the moment OK kind of book, but it never gets really interesting to read. For me, the best part was the explanation to the Mothman. Unfortunately, this series feels like romance books masquerading as paranormal. Every book is about a couple, and I bet I know what the next book will be about.
If this book had been more about the Mothman legend and less about Ryan Flynn and Katie Lynch getting together would I have found the book more interesting to read. Probably. I don't mind the romance per se, but it's a pattern in every book. And lo and behold it ended with a cliffhanger, or rather I know what "couple" the story will be about in the next book. As for the whole ex-boyfriend back with murder on his mind never really got interesting to read about. And, to be honest the characters are a bit flat in the book.
I'm sorry to be such a downer. It's just that the Mothman is such an interesting creature and I prefer to read something that's more like a book version of X-files, not some paranormal romance, with emphasis on romance. But, if that's your thing, then I guess this book will work for you!
