My Review
Blue Hollow is a hard book to read. It's dark. It's gritty. It's tense. And it's emotional.
The story follows Dora, a woman who is tossed into the midst of a fifty-plus year crime that's been kept secret all this time. It isn't until her friend Eddie asks her to listen to a tape that things start to spiral out of control as the truth comes to light. The perpetrators will stop at nothing to keep everything hushed up, including murder. Can Dora expose the evils that still linger within Blue Hollow, or will she become its next victim? You'll have to read it and find out.
This book is...it's just wow. I found myself immediately intrigued and curious, while also becoming more and more horrified as I read on. There is some dark subject matter that gets tackled within the pages, and it may bother more sensitive readers. Definitely take that into account before starting the journey.
The plot is paced nicely, and the story overall kept me on my toes, eager and anxious to know what Dora might uncover next. There are a lot of secrets. A lot of lies. A lot of twists and turns. It's crazy.
I did find myself a bit annoyed with a couple of the characters at times. Dora jumped to conclusions too often, and others refused to come clean, preferring to let Dora investigate things even when they could have easily just told her what she needed to know. I get why they didn't, but it still irked me a little.
If you're looking for an intense, dark thriller that will have you on the edge of your seat, definitely pick up a copy of Blue Hollow. You won't be disappointed. 
4 stars!
