Mystery Falls Book Review

Secrets. Lies. Deception. For the past six years, Samantha Hunt has lived with the belief that the untimely death of her parents was the result of an unfortunate accident—that by the cruel hand of fate, she had been left an orphan. But it was a lie, a terrible lie told to her by those who wanted to keep her in the dark. And the truth... when revealed, will change her life and haunt her forever.

Suddenly plagued by a series of events which find her in danger and in need of a savior, Samantha is repeatedly rescued by the mysterious and elusive Shadow—a stranger who seems to know more about her past and the tragedy which befell her family, than she does. Drawn to him despite the antagonism she feels whenever in his presence, Samantha soon discovers that Shadow is not what he appears to be. Determined to learn his true identity and why he has come to Mystery Falls, the small town in which she has spent all of her seventeen years, Samantha not only uncovers the secrets he refuses to share, but also the truth about her own past. A truth which forces her to acknowledge that things are not always as they seem, and sometimes, not even those close to you can be trusted. 

Resolved to seeking justice for the unwarranted death of her parents, Samantha embarks on a journey which brings her perilously close to her own demise. Can Shadow use his angel powers to save her yet again, or this time, will he be too late.
 My Review

I received a free copy of this novel for my honest review.  Mystery Falls is an amazing love story full of mystery and suspense.  I’m not a girly girl, so I was thrilled with Sam and Shadow’s love/hate relationship.  There’s also the backdrop story, Sam has spent years blaming herself for her parents’ deaths.  Now in light of information she gets from her best friend, she searches for the truth.  The truth that my put her in grave danger.  I really liked the fact that the romance aspect was pretty realistic, it didn’t run smoothly, there were lots of bumps in the road to overcome.  This is one book that has it all, mystery, romance and a paranormal aspect.  Beautifully written with an wonderful character development, I look forward to reading more from Ms. Phillips!
