Books From The Backlog-A Thousand Yesteryears


Books from the Backlog is a fun way to feature some of those neglected books sitting on your bookshelf.  You might be surprised by some of the unread books hiding in your stacks. Go to Carole's blog and add your blog post link in to join in the fun! Hosted by Carole at https://carolesrandomlife.blogspot.co.uk/

This seems like a fun feature and I have been planning to take part since Carole launched this so at last, here we go! I have a TON of unread books to choose from in various genres and I'm looking forward to sharing some of them with everybody. 


Behind a legend lies the truth…

As a child, Eve Parrish lost her father and her best friend, Maggie Flynn, in a tragic bridge collapse. Fifteen years later, she returns to Point Pleasant to settle her deceased aunt’s estate. Though much has changed about the once thriving river community, the ghost of tragedy still weighs heavily on the town, as do rumors and sightings of the Mothman, a local legend. When Eve uncovers startling information about her aunt’s death, that legend is in danger of becoming all too real...

Caden Flynn is one of the few lucky survivors of the bridge collapse but blames himself for coercing his younger sister out that night. He’s carried that guilt for fifteen years, unaware of darker currents haunting the town. It isn’t long before Eve’s arrival unravels an old secret—one that places her and Caden in the crosshairs of a deadly killer...


I actually discovered this one last year and I really enjoyed the sample that I read which covered the tension of the bridge collapse. I went ahead and bought the book in January 2018 and I'm itching to get reading it as I'm fascinated by things like The Mothman.

    3. Your comment is posted below. I have to personally moderate each comment before it can be seen on the blog. I do that every morning but don't always have time to do it more than once a day so sometimes it doesn't appear until the next day.

  2. I need this book in my life. When I went to college, I used to drive over the replacement bridge once a week. I still only live about an hour from where this takes place. I'm hoping to attend the Mothman festival this year!

    1. Ooh I'd like to go to a Mothman festival! We don't have anything that interesting in my area! It must be a bit creepy to be at the scene of a disaster like that. I've been to Lockerbie and saw where the parts of the plane came down which was quite chilling.

  3. Oh this sounds like such a good read! Anything that involves mysteries raised by an estate is something I can never pass up. I've never heard of this one before but it's definitely going on my TBR.
