Summary of the Book:
Lydia Li’s life ended when Tristan died. At least, that’s how it felt. Sure, they had problems and he could be a little…intense…at times, but he’d loved her. He was the Romeo to her Juliet… And now he was gone.
When her parents get her to agree to a summer across the country with a music teacher who runs an inn, Lydia agrees. But it’s different than what she expected. There’s something else there. Something that feels a lot like Tristan. But that’s impossible, right?
Then there’s Michael Malone, the quiet guy who’s Tristan’s opposite in every way. And Lydia can’t help but be drawn to him…and whatever the house is hiding.
My Personal Review: I received a copy of this book for a fair and honest review. This is a very emotional novel. It goes from sad and tragic to dark, creepy and kind of depression. That is after the death of her boyfriend in an accident. That is when her mother suggests that she goes across the country to Stonebridge Inn. The place with a dark and spooky history of it own. There is this picture that looks lot like Tristan. There is some dark entity that lives at the inn. She meets a gentle man named Michael who is a handyman. This made me feel all kind of ways for there is a lot dark theme and plot points. It will get your heart going.
My Rating of the Book: 4 Stars
