Alison chose to read and review the Harlequin boxset, today’s book is The Girl In Blue by Barbara J Hancock
The Girl in Blue by Barbara J. Hancock
This was a fairly quick read, but on the whole an enjoyable one.
Trinity returns to Scarlet Falls looking for answers to the tragedies that have followed her all her life and that have marred the town and its residents. She is surprised to find Samuel living in her parents’ home; the two are connected by the past and by Samuels’ brush with death. He, like Trinity, is looking for answers and they join forces to track down what’s behind the mysterious girl in blue who has been haunting Trinity for as long as she can remember.
There is some great scene- setting in this – creepy moments and creepy places, and the relationship between Trinity and Samuel works well.
My only gripe is that it was too short – I wanted to know more about Trinity, about Samuel and about what really lies behind Scarlet Falls. That said, it’s a great creepy read and if you love gothic and romance then it’s definitely worth giving it a go.
