Review: Those Who Wait

Those Who Wait:
Simone O’Henley, recuperating at a remote lakefront cottage from a devastating broken heart, finds anything but rest. The noises and moans she hears coming out of a nearby grove of trees terrify her, but are soon tempered by the company of handsome Jackson Taylor. The locals have never heard of him and are convinced he’s a land developer ready to snatch up their land at the first opportunity. He convinces Simone he is a simple caretaker looking over land for a friend, but her heart speaks the loudest. After he disappears, she travels far and wide to find him and the truth. A truth that turns her entire world upside down and throws everything she has ever believed into the winds of common sense and reason.


Review:  Mystery, intrigue, and chills. That's this book all rolled into one.  I had an eerie feel for this book right from the start. The writing is  well done, gave an ambiance almost like a gothic romance thriller.  I couldn't turn the pages fast enough. The suspense and hype just kept building and building and literally had my stomach in knots at times.  What a great story. This is my first time picking up a book from the author, Lynn Hones. I love this author's voice. The characters are intriguing and though there's so many secrets with Jackson, that's what made him appealing, because I wanted to know it all. It's like there's a shadow lurking in his world, and I just had to find out what and why. Simone is a great leading heroine. She's got a lot of things going on in her own world, and now in a new place, there's so much more for her to deal with.

Those Who Wait is a book that fans of suspense can surely enjoy.
