Betraying Innocence by Airicka Phoenix is a topnotch thriller/paranormal mystery. This strongest aspect of this story was the way the story involved and the suspense built. Another thing in the book’s favor was the fact that the back text didn’t give away too much of the story.
Ana is a city girl who moves to a suburban town in British Columbia. The first night in the new house Ana can’t sleep and she sees a ghost standing by the pond in her backyard. When she goes to investigate she adds up accidentally meeting her hot new neighbor Rafe, who was having a roll in the grass with a local girl. But of course, they instantly butt heads.
Then just go downhill from there for Ana.
One of the most of the effective aspects of the writing is how the author doesn’t spend much time describing what’s haunting Ana. This pulls you into new world of Ana’s and makes you want to keep reading to find out what’s going to happen next, where the story is going. The only reason I didn’t finish this book in a day is because I had to sleep.
If you’re looking for a book with thrills, romance, mystery and unexplainable happenings, this is your book.
