Another day, another review of a book I saw advertised on Twitter. Don't underestimate the power of social media and connecting with fellow indie authors. Rebecca Crunden, host of the Twitter page Indie Book Spotlight, is not only a huge supporter and promotor of indie authors, she is one herself. When she started advertising her own work, Haze was the first to catch my eye. The premise was so enticing that I immediately moved it to the top of my TBR list, and I was not disappointed!
This is one of the most unusual, twisty, creative paranormal mysteries I have ever read. It's different. It really sets itself apart from other books in this genre. That's what made it so fun to read.
When Eliza gets a phone call from a girl insisting she has vital information about Eliza's fiancé, she agrees to meet with the mystery girl, Paige. However, when Eliza shows up and Paige doesn't, she soon learns that Paige is dead, and has been for years. Needless to say, I was already hooked, but the mystery doesn't stop there.
The development of strange abilities and another mysterious death adds more to the growing mystery, and I was left wondering what the heck was going on, and what could possibly happen next? I love it when a book genuinely surprises me with a plot twist, and this one definitely delivered. As I tore through the pages, I was left wondering how much of what was happening was real, or if it was all just in someone's head.
This is a book I highly recommend if you're looking for a different kind of supernatural thriller. I believe the author mentioned this was actually her first published work, and I think it made for a perfect debut. Rebecca is the author of 10 books (I'm sure with more to come), and her work also appears in several anthologies. This was my first read from Rebecca, and it definitely won't be my last. I look forward to diving into more!
