{my thoughts} – I really enjoyed reading this book. It was fast paced, romance, engaging, had a bit of mystery, history and teenage drama.

Colette is apparently an a middle class teenager that is taking her first trip to Paris for a class field trip. She has two best friends Hannah and Pilar that fall on the rich scale. It has been months since Colette shared the same status and was only allowed to continue attending her school with her friends because she was accepted for a scholarship. This also makes things difficult for her when they go shopping together because she can’t just spend what she’d like, in most cases she doesn’t have the funds to waste.

When they get to Paris with their class they learn that there has been a murder in which a teen had been beheaded. This murder advances into a string of serial killings in which the killer has been unable to be identified. The string of murders start to lead Colette and a classmate Audrey as well as their tour guide on a mission to find out exactly what is going to be taking place and why things are taking place.

This book was a very nice read. If you’d like to know what takes place inside it’s pages: I’d suggest reading it. A lot happens in such a short amount of time a lot of things that you wouldn’t ordinarily think would take place.

{reason for reading} - I obtained a copy of this book from a fellow blogger in exchange for a review and I was accepted to review it through netgalley.

{My Thoughts} – Delia is a sixteen year-old girl that inherits and Insane Asylum when her Great Great Aunt Cordelia. Delia also happens to be named for her Great Great Aunt Cordelia. It isn’t until they arrive at the property that her and her family begin to understand what the building had actually been used for when it was fully functioning.

The plan is for Delia and her parents and younger sister to spend three months fixing the place up so that they can sell it to perspective buyers. What happens instead was not what had been the plan, but what seemed to be fate in an odd twisted since of the word.

Delia senses something is wrong when they are to spend their first night there. She explores a bit, she gets incredibly spooked and then she begs her family to leave and leave now. That isn’t what happens though, they don’t they and the family pays a terrible price because of it.

Delia spends most of her time trying to find clues as to why her Aunt killed herself off of the property. She tries to find ways to cope with what has become her new reality. She tries to find ways to help herself understand why things had turned out the way in which they had turned out and what she can do to help improve the current situation instead of making it worse. She tries and tries and tries some more. Eventually as the story begins to unravel many questions are answered, many things will make sense, many things will leave you wanting to tear up because there are some incredible emotional scenes in the book.

This book in my opinion is incredibly well written and if you enjoy things on the paranormal, extremely light horror side I am certain that you will enjoy reading this book just as much as I did. I cannot wait until my children are old enough to read books like these because I am certain that they will enjoy them as much as I do.
