About the Author
Marie Sexton’s first novel, Promises, was published in January 2010. Since then, she’s published nearly thirty novels, novellas, and short stories, all featuring men who fall in love with other men. Her works include contemporary romance, science fiction, fantasy, historicals, and a few odd genre mash-ups. Marie is the recipient of multiple Rainbow Awards, as well as the CRW Award of Excellence in 2012. Her books have been translated into six languages.
Marie lives in Colorado. She’s a fan of just about anything that involves muscular young men piling on top of each other. In particular, she loves the Denver Broncos and enjoys going to the games with her husband. Her imaginary friends often tag along. Marie has one daughter, two cats, and one dog, all of whom seem bent on destroying what remains of her sanity. She loves them anyway.--This text refers to the paperback edition.

I think what will make this book have such an impact on the reader is you feel everything as the MC Haven does. You have doubts like Haven does. You’re torn between believing in the haunting and excusing it. Wondering what happened to Elise the cousin. The pain and confusion that comes with not knowing.The writing is great. I was totally sucked into this book fully. Every page I was left anticipating something. You know it’s coming and the Marie Sexton does an amazing job of keeping me on edge. Hugging my pillow in the dark while turning the pages. I had to know but I was also afraid to know. The love story is a what could have been type thing. What could have been had my cousin not disappeared and they suspected your brother of murdering her type of thing. Yeah. It’s complicated and then some. There’s so much history built into this book. The guys feel the chemistry upon their reunion right away but there’s so much lingering there between them. I liked the reality show and small town murder mystery aspects of the story. The book does jump from past to present. I know this can frustrate people but the way it’s written in this book builds some wicked tension. I absolutely recommend this book. The story flows but there’s so many layers to pick apart to get to the end. I loved it!
In the present day, Haven is a successful author of horror fiction, while two of his friends from that long-ago night, brothers Pierce and Jordan, host a paranormal reality show. They get the group back together to try to recreate the events of that night in hopes of solving two mysteries.
This was a well-crafted mystery with engaging characters and plenty of twists and turns. The supernatural elements appeared in just the right amounts, providing intrigue without overshadowing the story.
Thanks for reading. Cheers!
To say that The Well scared the stuffing out of me might be a slight overstatement but to say I was on the edge of my seat from beginning to end is exactly right. Is there a ghost? Is there lots of coincidences that explain what happened to Cassie and Elsie? Will the answers come from someone they know? Or will they come from beyond the grave? You know me, for those answers you have to read The Well for yourself but trust me when I say you will definitely want to check it out.
What I loved the most was how the author blended so many elements together to bring us this story. The romance might be minimal, paranormal is pretty much left open to the reader's interpretation, mystery is everywhere but throughout there is plenty of heart behind the tale molding it all together. I highly recommend giving The Well a read and its a great addition to my Halloween library.
The main character is Haven, a young man struggling with his sexuality, at least in the flashbacks. The story is told from Haven's point of view and the reader is given an excellent view of his thoughts and feelings.

The book centres on a dilapidated old house in small-town America, and an ill-advised séance a group of teenagers hold there. Their fumbling attempts to contact the spirit of a young woman who supposedly haunts the house raise spectres both in the real world – and beyond. And when one of their own group goes missing that same night, it has repercussions that follow them into their adult lives.
Everything about the book was nicely done: good observation, well-drawn characters, great descriptions of both the old house and its environs, and small-town life. The romance was sweet and believable while the supernatural events genuinely raised the hairs on the back of my neck. I wasn’t 100% convinced by the epilogue but apart from that this is a good read for anyone who likes ghost tales grounded in reality, or murder mysteries with a hint of the paranormal.
I can't really put into words how much I loved this story.
