Jennifer reviews a new book...
Seven Sisters by M. L. Bullock, was recommended to me by an online friend and I just finished reading it. I’m not quite sure which official genre it falls into—it’s part mystery, part paranormal and part romance—and I thoroughly enjoyed it.
As I’ve mentioned before, I’m fairly critical of new authors. I don’t like reading books that pull me out due to errors or poor writing. This one kept me hooked from the beginning and I read it all in one sitting—a luxury for me! It’s a serial, so this book ends on a cliffhanger (warning to anyone who dislikes that kind of ending).
The story takes place in Mobile, Alabama. The heroine is able to read people’s memories in her dreams. She is some sort of an historian and is hired to help turn an old antebellum mansion into a museum. That’s all I’m going to tell you, other than the blurb, which I’m posting below. The story is fast paced and fascinating and I’m looking forward to reading the second book in the series.
