First things first: I received an ARC of this book from Entangled through NetGalley.
The book came out august 2nd. And I highly recommend it.
Book summary: Tragedy has brought Micaela Burgos back to her hometown of Sleepy Hollow. It's been six years since she chose to live with her affluent father in Miami instead of her history-obsessed eccentric mother. And now her mother is dead.
But while Sleepy Hollow was made immortal by literature, the town is real. So are its prejudices and hatred, targeting Mica's Cuban family and the secrets of their heritage that her mother obsessed over. But ghostly voices whisper in the wind, questioning whether her mother’s death might not have been an accident after all, and Mica knows there's a reason she's here.
With the help of two very different guys—who pull at her heart in very different ways—Micaela must uncover the hidden secret of Sleepy Hollow…before she meets her mother's fate.
I just finished this amazing book. My faith in this story wavered a bit at the end but a few twists and turns and I'm back to loving everything about this book.
I just love the whole story, the writing and the setting of this. I love how the story developed, every little twist and turn. It kept me entertained and kept the tension til the last page. And the mystery part was also so very well done, same with the supernatural stuff. So yay, for amazing storytelling.
Loved the characters. Especially Micaela and Dane (or whatever his real name is). I also really loved Betty Ann and how she took Micaela in and took care of her. And I'm glad she turned out to be the one person she could really trust, I was worried there a bit. I wasn't to keen with Bram, this isn't really a ship kind of thing. It's just that his personality rubs me the wrong way. Just no.
When it comes to relationships, it wasn't as important to me (I just didn't want Micaela to end up with Bram), I was more intrigued about Micaela reconnecting with her mother. Yes, she is dead, but I still feel like at the end of the story Miceala understood her mother so much more and had a much better view of her than in the beginning of the story. And I also cared much more about what happened to Miceale's mother, what was the deal with the journal and what was even going on. And I'm glad the story focused more on that than on the love triangle, that was obviously there but it wasn't as prominent. Thank god.
Overall, I really loved it. Duh!!!
