Publisher's Summary

Allie Kirkland has never been one to take wild risks. But when she's offered a costuming assistant's job on a docudrama in the hills near Moses Lake, she jumps at the chance. She's always dreamed of following in her director-father's footsteps, and the reenactment of the legendary frontier settlement of Wildwood is a first step. The family expectations will have to wait. But in 1861, the real Wildwood held dangerous realities. Town founder Harland Delevan held helpless residents, including young Irish schoolteacher Bonnie Rose, in an iron grip. Mysterious disappearances led to myths and legends still retold in the folk songs of Chinquapin Peaks. Eventually, the entire site was found abandoned. When strange connections surface between Allie and the teacher who disappeared over a century ago, everyone in Wildwood, including Allie's handsome neighbor on the film set, Blake Fulton, seems to be hiding secrets, and Allie doesn't know who she can trust. If she can't find the answers in time, history may repeat itself...with the most unthinkable results.

Much more Hollywood than Holiness

This was my first book by Lisa Wingate, and it has not inspired me to read another. Nothing happens, really. The set-up goes on and on and on, and just when you think things are going to start happening, they don't, the action just picks up a little momentum, not much. And the problem is, we pretty much already know what happens since the narrative switches back and forth from the past to the present. In both time periods, the romance is a tease, flitting in and out like a butterfly and never really developing in a satisfying way, especially in the present. And if it wasn't for the modern protagonist's grandmother's cute little sayings, some of which touch upon God, there is no religion in the lives of the characters at all. At all. Hollywood and mysterious directors shine here in glorious worldly detail, but Jesus is nowhere to be seen, and certainly never mentioned. It's weird. And boring. The climax is strictly out of a Hollywood TV show, and totally anticlimactic, not to mention trite. Very unsatisfying.

There were two narrators. The one who narrated the scenes in the past did a lovely, if sometimes maddeningly lethargic, job. The modern narrator was okay but annoyingly sing-song and fast, like the character was always on a caffeine rush even when she was tired.

Irritating narrators

narrators were hard to listen to, not much change in voice tones, or emotion. Very hard to follow. felt like I could wait for it to be over. The book may have been good, but honestly, I couldn't listen any further.

Best if the series!

I did not care at all for Firefly Island so it was hard for me to push ahead and listen to the last of the Moses Lake series. I sure am glad I did. This was well performed, kept your interest and had nice endings. Everything a good book should be.

Final “twist” super disappointing

Intriguing until the end. Then it just falls flat. Kind of want the hours listening back.
