For years Jade Kelley wanted to leave the small, isolated town and the old, drafty home she grew up in. Her wish was finally coming true and she was excited. Even though it meant starting her senior year of high school somewhere new and that she'd only be there for a year before heading off to college.
But the new house her father and stepmother bought was perfect. She couldn't have been happier.
Until the kids at school started whispering behind her back. Until she started to notice that the things in her room weren't always where she left them. Until her little brother Colby mentioned seeing a girl in his room that no one else could see. Until she started to feel an unexplainable chill in the air.
And until she discovered the reason why her family could afford such a beautiful home in such a nice neighborhood.
Author Kim Harrington did a fantastic job in creating this mystery. She managed to cast suspicion on a number of characters. She revealed enough to allow readers to start putting the pieces of the puzzle together. She made the main character's sleuthing efforts believable. And she even included a love story which added angst and heartache to this suspense-filled tale.
Jade is a likable and clever, loyal and protective heroine. She is someone who forms her own opinions and doesn't allow others to make up her mind for her. She is independent and isn't afraid to be exactly who she is. But she's not so different as to be unrelatable. She's still shy around the kids at her new school, nervous and angry and hurt by her father, and frightened by what's going on in her picture perfect home.
With a few twists and turns, a couple of spine-tingling moments, a mystery that will leave room for doubt as to whodunit and a cast of characters that are fun to get to know, THE DEAD AND BURIED is an incredibly entertaining, at times chilling, tension-filled and captivating read.
