About the Book

‘I will never forget the night I drowned…’

Seventeen-year-old Eleanor Parker wakes up cold and alone in the river that twists through her quiet village. She remembers a hand on her chest, another on her head, water in her throat, those final gasps for air…

Her brother’s girlfriend was drowned in the same river the summer before, held under the water by an unknown killer.

Determined to unlock the mystery of what really happened that night, Eleanor can’t escape the feeling that something terrible links her to the previous summer’s murder. But will she discover the shocking truth, before it’s too late?

A gripping and extraordinary coming of age novel that will keep you guessing until the very end. 

My Thoughts

4.5 Bewitching Stars 🌟🌟🌟🌟

This was a young adult thriller with a paranormal twist and it was brilliant! I’d like to encourage you to read this book with an open mind and the understanding that not everything in this book is “believable“… because the only way it is possible for somebody to investigate their own murder is for there to be a supernatural element… requiring us the reader to stretch our imagination…. for me this just was the perfect shift making an ordinary story extraordinary!

17-year-old Eleanor wakes up on a river bank with no memory of how she got there… is she dead? Is she alive? Is she a ghost? People can see her, she can walk, she can talk… but she cannot smell, taste, feel, and she is oh so cold… now Eleanor is determined to figure out what happened the night before she ended up in the river and who tried to kill her… and will they try again?

Eleanor was such a likable character… I loved playing detective right along with her, everyone was a suspect… her boyfriend, her best friend, her brother, the guy working at the local diner… I must give a special S/O to that diner love the idea of a wall filled with cassette tapes…. antique cassette tapes… ugh makes me feel old!

This truly is a genre defying book that I strongly encourage you to give a try! This was one of the best young adult books I’ve read this year and the uniqueness and supernatural element of the story should really appeal to a broad audience of younger readers…. I also need to give Kerry Wilkinson major props… as a grown man he did a phenomenal job of writing a book from a female teenager’s perspective… I certainly hope this is not his last young adult book, because I for one am looking forward to many more!

Absolutely recommend to readers of all ages, this was a well-done thriller with a unique twist!
