Thank you to the author and Rachel’s Random Resources for providing me with a free copy in exchange for an honest review.
I can’t actually remember the last time I read a ‘paranormal’ sort of book so I was really excited to be able to dive straight into this one! We start off with Claire and her fulfilling what I’m guessing is everyone’s fantasy winning the lottery, from there on we are transported to Fuerteventura.
Now I do have to say I was a bit surprised with just how much I did enjoy reading this mainly due to it being quite slow paced as the author really delves into the history and surroundings of the island, I usually prefer there to be a bit more action but I really found myself falling in love with pretty much everything and was completely sucked into the descriptions, it was like a little mini holiday in my head.
The supernatural aspect was also great as it kept the mystery going and to keep a whole lot of intrigue about the story, now as I mentioned the story itself is fairly slow paced but I really felt like it worked for this as I found myself taking my time and really trying to soak up everything. A great four and a half star read!
Would I read again: Yes
Would I Recommend: Yes
Would I read another book from this author: Yes
