"It's like being in the eye of a hurricane."
After loosing his job, and eventually his families home, Bill Anderson moves his wife, Karen, and their two twin daughters from their comfortable lifestyle in California to small Mateguas Island off the coast of Maine. Little do they know, their new home has a deep, dark history, and they're about to experience its grip.
This isn't your traditional ghost story in the sense that things go bump in the night, well...they do, but not in the same way as the ghosts in movies like "The Conjuring," or "Paranormal Activity." No ones being dragged from their bed by an invisible force, but there are invisible forces at play, and they are pretty frightening.
One of the best things about Linda Watkin's characters is their believably, and the realistic way she goes about building their relationships and thought patterns. Karen and Bill Anderson's story is so realistic, the reader can't help but be drawn into the story.
So why only three stars? Well, as much as I enjoyed this book, I didn't LOVE it. It just wasn't a book I was racing to get through, or finish. It certainly pulled me in enough to finish the book, but I'm not running to pick up the next book in the series. With that being said, if you're looking for a good read on a rainy, stormy day, give Mateguas Island a shot!
