HERE ARE MY THOUGHTS AND REVIEW
Oh my if you have any sort of bladder control issues get prepared because this novel won’t help your situation. I knew it was a super natural book and it leads into it as what I can only describe as a sort of fairy story way. No really, there is a Once upon a time followed by the birth of three sisters, all given beautiful names to match the beautiful babies they were. Rose and Violet were brown haired, brown eyed beauties but some 14 years after the birth of the first baby, Lavender was born, a blonde haired stunning child. Lavender was kind and good and promised to be married to Matt but her life ended tragically at just 18 years old. Well, not quite the happy ever after ending is it?
Six years later the family are still close to Matt and are over joyed at the news that he is going to marry a lovely young woman called Beth. But something sinister will stop at nothing to prevent this happening and what starts as small unexplained occurrences, always accompanied by the strong smell of Lavender, soon develops into a mysterious death.
Well let me tell you this is no fairy story! Don’t be deceived with this kindly looking author because boy has she got some wicked thoughts in her head! This story is a wow that really gets under your skin and makes you want to get your back against the wall while you read. I don’t think that I have ever read a book at such a pace. Anita Waller’s characters very quickly become full bodied and full of fear, which directly transferred to me. .
It seems that nothing will stop this entity and no one is safe. I felt so heart broken for Lavender’s mum, the pain she was feeling for her once adorable child being capable of these things and being powerless to stop her. Even now after finishing the book I still have that residue tingling in my spine, the warning feeling that something isn’t right, an expecting feeling that something is going to happen. This is a super, super natural book that I most highly recommend.
