The Shape of the Night
Author: Tess Gerritsen
A woman trying to outrun her past is drawn to a quiet coastal town in Maine–and to a string of unsolved murders–in this haunting tale of romantic suspense from New York Times bestselling author Tess Gerritsen.
Ava Collette is punishing herself for an unspeakable tragedy. So she flees Boston and rents an old home named Brodie’s Watch on a remote coastal peninsula of Maine, hoping to work on a cookbook inspired by New England cuisine that she’s been trying to finish for months. She immediately feels at peace in the isolated house–until she starts to hear strange noises.
Rumor has it that a sea captain named Brodie has haunted the house for decades. Then, one night, Ava is awakened to find herself face to face with an apparition who looks–and feels–all too real. Meanwhile, there’s been a series of accidental deaths nearby that don’t add up. And as Ava starts to check into the previous renter’s mysterious disappearance, she starts to realize that there’s a disturbing secret some in town are desperate to keep hidden.
Soon all of Ava’s waking hours are consumed by her investigation, and her nights are ignited by Captain Brodie’s ghostly visits. But even as she questions her own sanity, she knows she must uncover the truth before a killer strikes again.
Would I recommend it?yes
Will I read anything else thing else by this author? yes
Will it was way different then I was excepting from this author ,it shows that she can write other stories that is way different from the series she's known for, and it has a touch of The Ghost and Mrs.Muir mixed with a murder as well as dissapance , and a bit of romance. And if your expecting it to be like her other works then this just might not be for you , because it's more along the lines of a gothic paranormal stand-alone mystery, which was one of the reasons I requested it from Netgalley and I'm so glad I did, while there was times you have to ask yourself is Ava dreaming or is this happening because Ava might be losing her sanity , or is there more to the picture then what you can see, just like her books this one is field with suspense that had me hooked from the beginning to the ever end and kept me guessing on to trust and who not to trust , with that said I want to thank Netgalley for letting me read and review it and I can't wait to read more by her .
