About the book:
Title: The Haunting at Bonaventure Circus
Author: Jaime Jo Wright
Genre: Romantic Suspense/Dual-timeline
Release Date: September 1, 2020
The Bonaventure Circus is a refuge for many, but Pippa Ripley was rejected from its inner circle as a baby. When she receives mysterious messages from someone called the “Watchman,” she is determined to find him and the connection to her birth. As Pippa’s search leads her to a man seeking justice for his murdered sister and evidence that a serial killer has been haunting the circus train, she must decide if uncovering her roots is worth putting herself directly in the path of the killer.
The old circus train depot will either be torn down or preserved for historical importance, and its future rests on real estate project manager Chandler Faulk’s shoulders. As she dives deep into the depot’s history, she’s also balancing a newly diagnosed autoimmune disease and the pressures of single motherhood. When she discovers clues to the unsolved murders of the past, Chandler is pulled into a story far darker and more haunting than even an abandoned train depot could portend.
I have waited so long for this book! Sometimes, that works to the detriment of the book. Not so here. Pippa and Chandler were everything I hoped they would be in this dual-timeline suspense.
In a world where broken and often neglected people are considered less-than, The Haunting at Bonaventure Circus is the epitome of pulling yourself up from the lowest pieces of your heart and learning to love and appreciate who you are FOR who you are.
Deliciously creepy, I could not stop reading once I began. Jaime Jo Wright has such a wonderful ability to pull me into her story worlds, and this tale was no different. Pippa and Chander, along with the men who truly love them, are forces to be reckoned with as they traverse this crazy life.
Circus life has always fascinated me, and the depth of character and detail in this book satisfied a deeply rooted itch.
I received a copy of this book from the publisher via NetGalley. I was not required to leave a positive review. All thoughts and opinions expressed are my own.
