Wildwood Creek is more than just a town that has mysteries. In 1861 Bonnie Rose O’Brien, an Irish immigrant, who has gone through tragedy, is offered a teaching position in the town of Wildwood Creek.
Fast forward to the present day, we have Allie Kirkland, who dreams of following her late father in the filming industry; even though her mother and stepfather want her to go into the paralegal profession. When Allie hears about a summer job as production assistant for a company that wants to recreate the 1861 Wildwood Creek settlement, she knows that this is the job for her.
Dealing with hard to work for bosses, a mysterious cowboy, Allie is surprised to be offered the main role as Bonnie Rose. Allie then spends the summer reenacting and living the role as Bonnie Rose, in return for a paid in full scholarship to one of the best film schools.
As Allie digs deeper into the mystery of her character, she unravels to the reader the real mystery of what happened in Wildwood, how debonair Harland Delgrave held the villagers captive, and one by one they disappeared. Along the way Allie encounters trials, and hardships as well as romance.
This is an amazing book that is hard to put down, the characters become real, and you are always wanting to learn more and why? Many times you want to scream out at the characters or urge them along. It is interesting the style the author has written in, using the two characters Bonnie Rose and Allie, switching alternately at strategic times. It works really well. This is a very enjoyable book, number four in the Moses Lake series.
