From the Back Cover
"The suspense grips early, holds fast, and doesn't let the reader go until the last satisfying page."
--Kristy Cambron, bestselling author of The Lost Castle and the Hidden Masterpiece series
"Riveting! An outstanding novel from an author to watch."
--Jocelyn Green, award-winning author of The Mark of the King
"Jaime Jo Wright is an amazing storyteller who had me on the edge of my seat, turning pages and reading as fast as I could to get to the end of the book!"
--Tracie Peterson, bestselling author of The Heart of the Frontier series
Kaine Prescott is no stranger to death. When her husband died two years ago, her pleas for further investigation into his suspicious demise 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, resurrecting painful memories and forcing a reunion with the man who broke her heart. Can Ivy unravel the mystery and find a renewed hope before any other lives--including her own--are lost?
"Jaime Jo Wright's The House on Foster Hill blends the past and present in a gripping mystery that explores faith and the sins of ancestors. . . . Connections are made at an ideal pace, and clues scattered throughout give the perfect amount of information. . . . Characters are savvy yet vulnerable, and their continual quests for hope in the midst of darkness are appealingly inspirational. Deep emotional struggles are the backbone of the novel and make the corresponding mystery even more engaging. With sharp dialogue and plenty of scares, this is a gripping tale that never loses sight of the light at the end of the tunnel."--Foreword Reviews
"Headed by two strong female protagonists, Wright's debut is a lushly detailed time-slip novel that transitions seamlessly between past and present, leading to the revelation of some surprising family secrets that someone would kill to protect. Readers who enjoy Colleen Coble and Dani Pettrey will be intrigued by this suspenseful mystery."--Library Journal
"With one mystery encased in another and a century between the two, Wright has written a spellbinding novel."--Christian Market

The dual timeline added a nice twist and was quite interesting. Although there was romance in the book, it was secondary, which I prefer. It's amazing that this is the author's debut novel because it was excellent. Extremely captivating with just the right amount of suspense to keep me turning the pages as fast as possible.
I enjoyed this book so much. If other authors would follow suit in writing a realistic mystery/suspense novel, I may give romantic suspense another try. Very well done, Jaime Jo Wright. You nailed it! I look forward to reading more by this author.
Dual plot lines set in the present day and in 1906, appealed to our members who like contemporary and/or historical novels. The two stories intertwine well. The action alternated between Kaine and Ivy’s stories keeping us turning the pages as quickly as possible — we had to know what was happening with both of these engaging and interesting characters. Kaine and Ivy are women of their times, but share a determination to get to the bottom of the mysteries that the shady Foster Hill House presents. Although some of us wanted to shake them from time to time, we generally loved them. The two male characters were a treat as well. Very different from each other, my group was split on which we liked better, but were pleased with how both added to the stories and the main characters’ lives. The book provided great discussion for our group — family history and secrets, human trafficking now and then, and keeping alive the memories of those who have passed.
Often my book club gets off task during our monthly discussions, but this month we had no trouble staying focused on The House on Foster Hill. Kudos for an impressive first novel. We look forward to many more from an author to watch.
Great for Book Clubs.
