Outstanding Debut Novel from an Author to Watch

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?

I absolutely loved The House on Foster Hill. I snuck in a few pages anywhere I could -- the commute, the lunch break, everything -- until I finished!

The book particularly impressed me in that it's Wright's debut novel. I didn't know that factoid until after I finished, and it raises my opinion of the book even higher. Wright has two novellas out as well, and I'm looking forward to reading those in 2018!

Foster Hill keeps the reader guessing until the very end. It does deal with some heavy topics at times, and opened my eyes to the prevalence and long (inglorious) history of topics I quickly forget aren't unique to the 21st century.

I received a free copy of the book from Litfuse. All opinions are my own.
