Rating: 3.6 – a good mystery and historical fiction

Opinion: This was a good mystery. It was different from what I was used to with suspense mysteries. This was a ghost and curse mystery. It kept me wondering what was going to happen next and wondering who was behind everything. It also made me a bit nervous about looking outside if I was reading at night. There was a lot of small town historical fiction, too. I was curious to learn more about old fashioned photography and asylums. I was also pleasantly surprise that this book had lots of elements of Christianity in it. It’s not an overwhelming amount but carefully woven into it. It made some very good point about faith and belief. This is one of the few books I don’t mind that it switches view points. It makes complete sense why in the end. The book does a great job wrapping up everything in the book with no loose ends. Overall this is a a good book for anyone who loves a good mystery and historical fiction.
