I was sent The Spirit of Grace by Terry Lynn Thomas to read and what a great read it was. I had no idea going into the book that I would feel how I did while reading it. This was a very different paranormal cozy it did not really read like one but read like a great historical cozy with some paranormal elements. Main character Sarah, was very much an enigma in the beginning of the story, but as a reader you get to know her as she really gets to know herself. You feel pulled into a very confusing situation, feel and empathize with her throughout the book. I found the twists and turns to be exciting and sad all in the same wonderful way. A great read and I am thrilled I can read another in the series very soon.
Sarah Bennett doesn’t remember the night her mother tumbled down the stairs at Bennett House, despite allegedly witnessing the fatal fall. There was talk of foul play, dark whispers, and sidelong glances, all aimed at Sarah, prompting her family to send her to The Laurels, an exclusive asylum in San Francisco, under a cloud of suspicion. Now, on the one-year anniversary of her mother’s murder, Sarah has been summoned home. Convinced of her innocence, she returns to Bennett House, hoping to put the broken pieces of her life back together. But when another murder occurs shortly after her arrival, Sarah once again finds herself a suspect, as she is drawn into a web of suspicion and lies. In order to clear her name, Sarah must remember what happened the fateful night her mother died. But as she works to regain her memory, the real murderer watches, ready to kill again to protect a dark family secret.The Spirit of Grace is out now and you can find it on Amazon by clicking here.
