This book introduces Peri Jean Mace, a small town girl with the unusual gift to see ghosts. Most of the small town is aware of her gift, but chooses to see her a bit crazy. She does not have the best upbringing and relies on her Memaw and best friend Chase for anything resembling comfort. When her trashy cousin Rae is found murdered, it sets off a whole series of chaos and brings about many characters into the relatively calm life of Peri Jean. She is unprepared for the tragic turn her life is about to take!
With people from her past, angry ghosts, and the arrival of new town deputy Dean Turgeau, Peri Jean's life gets real interesting as she is thrust into the spotlight of her cousin's murder. This read is filled with clues and paper chases, people who are not who they seem, and a eerie tone of spirits as the author creates a suspenseful read. I admit that it got a bit tangled in my head at times with the progressing murder mystery story and the age old mystery of a family treasure hunt.
I found the story to be a bit complex. I thought it was written well and the author did a good job of keeping the reader guessing. Perhaps it was the many different characters or the back and forth story lines that didn't give anything away. I think I missed the romance of the read. The love connection that ensued with Peri and the Dean seemed to have been predictable but it lacked a certain intensity that I enjoy. I also found the character connections to be a bit superficial. I would have liked some inner thoughts or deeper emotions. I was just starting to really enjoy the tale at the 80% mark when the height of the drama and suspense was full on. Again, I found this book to be more of an introduction into the life of Peri Jean so perhaps it will progress with the suspense and the romance.
Overall, I think this was a good start for Catie Rhodes's new series. I can see many people coming to like Peri Jean and her tough as nails exterior. I am looking forward to her using her gift a bit more and also getting a bit deeper into her emotional side!
Forever Road is a mystery at heart and the mystery drives the story. It has great twists and keep you engaged without sacrificing the story with cheap tricks. Peri Jean Mace is a strong female character who has inner strength and makes her own decisions. A fantastic character on par with Lisbeth Salander of the Girl With the Dragon Tattoo series. I can't wait to see what else is in store for her in future stories.
This book is called a supernatural thriller. I am hit or miss with supernatural stories, but Catie Rhodes does something fantastic here. The book is really a well crafted mystery with supernatural elements. These elements add to the story and enhance the drama, without trying to rely on the supernatural to move the story. It is creepy and an integral part of the character of Peri Jean Mace.
I felt I would enjoy this book, but was surprised how much I loved it. I was hooked and couldn't put it down. I finished the story with anticipation for future installments and a genuine interest in learning more about all the characters in the book, not just the main characters. Ms. Rhodes has done a fantastic job and I look forward to reading more of her work. This book is highly recommended.
