The Well by Marie Sexton
Releasing: May 22, 2017
Amazon ♦ Goodreads

Twenty years after prom queen Cassie Kennedy is brutally murdered, six teenagers break into the house where she was killed to hold a séance. Haven knows his cousin Elise only wants to scare the crap out of him and his friends, but he’s willing to put up with one of her pranks if it means a chance to spend a few hours with the new kid in town, Pierce Hunter.

But when morning comes, Elise has disappeared without a trace.

Twelve years later, Pierce and his twin brother Jordan are professional paranormal investigators, starring in their own ghost-hunting TV show. When Pierce calls Haven, insisting they return to the supposedly haunted building one last time, Haven reluctantly agrees. He’s nervous about seeing Pierce again, but he’s determined to get some answers. Did they really speak to Cassie’s ghost that night? What happened to Elise? And the biggest mystery of all – how did she know the secret of the well?

I've read Promises by Marie Sexton and her characterization was so beautifully done. She's another author I keep meaning to read more of and this one really calls out to me. Creepy with a smidge of passion? I'm there.

What book are you most excited about this week?


  1. Sounds like an interesting read - I'm always a sucker for a good ghost story, especially if there's a cursed old stone well.

  2. OMG what a horribly scary cover. I MUST have this one. What a great find this week and thanks for sharing (even though the TBR is growing...and growing...and growing.

  3. This one is new to me. I do like the creepy feel that I am getting from it. I hope you enjoy it once you get the chance to read it.

  4. I don't think i've read one by her, but this one piqued my interest!

  5. I like the cover for the book-simple but effective.

  6. That sounds perfect! Just like a scary movie that I would go see. Check out my Wednesday post

  7. I hope you all get a chance to read it. Netgalley just approved me!!
