The House on Foster Hill by Jaime Jo Wright

They told her that her husband was on drugs and that's why he lost control of his car and died.  Her husband didn't use drugs.  She insists it was murder.  The police tell her they'll file charges against her for filing false reports.  She's ready to move away from the city of his death and start life anew.  She decides she'll work on refurbishing an old home.  She'll fulfill his dream even if he's not here to help her do it...

Bethany House sent me a copy of this book to read for review (thank you).  It has been published, so you can get a copy now.

It seems someone was stalking Kaine while she was in the city.  She could tell things had been moved.  She found flowers in her home.  The police think it's all her imagination.  Now that's she moved, it should all be over.  It's not.  Someone is still stalking her.

This is a tale of a deserted house.  Evil things happened here long ago and family members don't want the secrets to get out.  It's written from two points of view:  Kaine's in present day and Ivy's from the past.  That makes the story read faster because you get bits and pieces of hints and clues in both eras.

There was a dead woman in the tree during Ivy's lifetime.  The case still hasn't been closed.  Kaine finds a hidden book under the floorboards while renovating the home and there are words in the margins.  The more they learn, the more confusing it gets.  It's a good thing she has friends because she needs their help and support to survive.

Her husband's death wasn't an accident and it doesn't have anything to do with her stalker at Foster Hill.  This is a complex mystery that keeps you guessing.
