Will a centuries-old broken heart ruin the promise of new love?
Dominic Ashworth is descended from a long line of witches, although the family practice of witchcraft died out generations ago. Forever connected to a dark history, the house he grew up in remained in the Ashworth family for generations until his estranged father sold it.
On a mission to check out the new owners, Dominic runs into Caleb Jones and gives the gorgeous man his phone number—but getting a date should be the last thing on Dominic’s agenda.
Caleb and his best friend, Zach Briceworth, are oblivious to the heartache and magic tied to the foundations of their new home. When strange things start to happen, the truth emerges and surprises them both, especially as everything revolves around Caleb’s new love interest.
After a shaky start, Caleb and Dominic settle into an easy relationship, falling faster than either of them expected. But with Halloween approaching, the possibility of danger increases. The past is not always as it seems, and the ripples of a tragic event threaten to put an end to everything between them.
It's Halloween time so of course I was excited to read All Hallows' Eve by Annabelle Jacobs. It is a great way to get in the mood.
A good story is one that builds on anticipation and emotion. You really can't have one without the other. Add an element of spooky and you've created a tale that will make you clutch your pearls and take a deep breath.
I will admit that I shed a few tears reading this. It's pretty high angst. More so than the scary part. This really plays a sad tune on your heart strings, and sort of stomps on it a few times too. There's a sense of dread in the book. I think the mixture of emotions is what make it more suffocating in that area.
A few times I said, "Oh come on already and give them a break." Okay, more like a zillion times. You really have to hold on to hope through it all.
It's not a super scary book really so if you're a fan of Halloween but not of pure terror, and of course you're okay with angst, this is a great book for you. The characters will grab you and with just the perfect amount of creepy it will give you the Halloween story you're hoping for.
