The changing perspectives between Mae and Cage, the two main characters of the book, as well as the flashbacks to 1860 Cole family history, provide an overall atmosphere of suspense throughout the novel. Mae Cole, the novel’s protagonist, is haunted by the mystery surrounding the death of her sister, Roxanne. Cage Shaw, his sister’s former boyfriend, who is angry, blunt, and devoted to Ro, wakes up without any memory of the last year and the suspicions of the town on his shoulders. The beginning of the book was crafted very well; the introduction of Mae, and Cage provide an overall sense of the book’s main characters and pacing, introducing the idea of Ro and everyone’s obsession over her death, while still keeping many key aspects mysterious. However, the plot quickly became very predictable, and the workaround many of the problems felt almost forced; for example, when Mae discovers that Cage is a Cole as well, his relationship with Ro and his attraction to Mae is quickly explained when her dad reveals he was adopted as an afterthought. Overall, I would recommend this book as a good gothic mystery novel, with some aspects of the paranormal and romance involved. Goedjen’s writing is very pretty, with plenty of prose and carefully constructed descriptions of the characters and scenes to provide an idea in the reader’s mind of the exact events. Show less
