REVIEW: "A Secret in the Attic" by Samantha Jillian Bayar
A very intriguing and engaging story about a magic spell set by a jealous friend decades ago to ruin the lives of future generations of women in this family wanting to marry the loves of their lives. Oh, they can marry, but the consequences are not what they desire.
Amy's Grandmother had just given her the bookstore and coffee shop she owned for her twenty-first birthday. Her Grandmother, now retired, sets off to travel with a friend. Amy, now the owner, is left to run both shops.
One day a very handsome man walks into the shop. Even though Amy is engaged, she becomes friends with this man and falls passionately in love with him, and he, with her.
***KAREN KINGSBURY BLOG TOUR - ***GIVEAWAY*** - NOW through Sunday, July 17th, ALL DAY until 11:59pm. What? The UNREAD 'ARC' of her NEW Release, "Learning", book 2 in the Bailey Flanigan series! I read the Ebook instead to preserve 'this' book for you!
They decide to marry, that is, until one day when
Amy finds a book in the attic with both her and her fiancés names written in it. Just what was this book? There were other women’s names from the family written in it whom she recognizes as she reads the rest of it. There is more. It also has some sort of spell stating that whoever’s name appears in this book is ‘Subject to the curse of the Widowed Bride’? What is this? Is this a curse? Is this a joke? Who did this? Who got in this attic and wrote her name in this book?
It’s time to call Grandma.
Amy needs help and fast.
This was a very good book. The author wrote this in a very engaging way. The plot was laid out very well and the characters were well developed. This story keeps your interest because once you start reading this story, you are not going to stop. You can’t. You have to know how this turns out.
Even though the description of the story is written above, it is very sketchy and there are no spoilers. There is so much more to this story that it will surprise you. It is well worth your time to read this enjoyable book.
I won this Ebook as a Giveaway from the Freedom Hop Giveaway we just had, from the Publisher, Livingston Hall Publishers. This is the first Urban Fantasy I have ever read. I enjoyed it very much. I will have to stretch further and read more. As a matter of fact, in the back of the book, the author has included the first two chapters of another book she has written, called “The Apothecary”. Well, I already went to Amazon and downloaded the Ebook! Check it out. Both books are only 99 cents.
