The House on Foster Hill by Jaime Jo Wright

Book Description:  Kaine Prescott is no stranger to death. When her husband died two years ago, her pleas for further investigation into his suspicious death fell on deaf ears. In desperate need of a fresh start, Kaine purchases an old house sight unseen in her grandfather's Wisconsin hometown. But one look at the eerie, abandoned house immediately leaves her questioning her rash decision. And when the house's dark history comes back with a vengeance, Kaine is forced to face the terrifying realization she has nowhere left to hide. 

A century earlier, the house on Foster Hill holds nothing but painful memories for Ivy Thorpe. When an unidentified woman is found dead on the property, Ivy is compelled to discover her identity. Ivy's search leads her into dangerous waters and, even as she works together with a man from her past, can she unravel the mystery before any other lives--including her own--are lost?

My Thoughts:  I heard about this story and was so excited to read it.
Jaime Jo Wright in her debut novel, The House on Foster Hill, does an outstanding job of writing in two different timelines~then and now.
The suspense is remarkable in both "stories" and keeps the reader on the edge .
Now this is may not be the older view of Christian suspense for it delves into the dark side of life.
There is a mystery in the house on Foster Hill. And two women intertwined through time are trying to solve this most suspenseful mystery.
Ivy Thorpe (1900's)  and Kaine Prescott (today) may be two different women, in two different time lines but they are one in the mystery of the house on Foster hill.
Even though there is a dark theme in this read, there is also hope and love found through God.
The way that the author kept the villain from being discovered was quite a feat.  A mystery to be remembered!
