The Lace Reader #Book #Review

Synopsis:
Look into the lace? When the eyes begin to fill with tears and the patience is long exhausted, there will appear a glimpse of something not quite seen... In this moment, an image will begin to form? in the space between what is real and what is only imagined. Can you read your future in a piece of lace? All of the Whitney women can. But the last time Towner read, it killed her sister and nearly robbed Towner of her own sanity. Vowing never to read lace again, her resolve is tested when faced with the mysterious, unsolvable disappearance of her beloved Great Aunt Eva, Salem's original Lace Reader.
Purchase: Amazon | Barnes & Noble 







My Review:
Sophya aka Towner has returned home to Salem, Massachusetts after finding out her Aunt Eva was reported missing. The women in the family have a special gift of reading lace, something Towner avoided. As she deals with the disappearance of her Aunt, she begins to deal with the ghosts of her past. Will she be able to pick up the pieces when all is revealed?


This was a fascinating story of Salem and those considered witches. That stood as the backdrop to Towner's story, which had many twists right until the very end to keep you engrossed. There are also many emotional moments, so keep a box of tissues handy.
