Title: Rose Petal Graves
Author: Olivia Wildenstein
Series: The Lost Clan Series (Book One)
Synopsis: ANCIENT SECRETS CANNOT REMAIN BURIED FOREVER.
Founded two centuries ago by a powerful tribe of Gottwa Indians, Rowan was a quiet town, so quiet that I fled after graduation. Staying away was the plan, but Mom died suddenly.
Dad said she suffered a stroke after she dug up one of the ancient graves in our backyard, which happens to be the town cemetery. Creepy, I know. Creepier still, there was no corpse inside the old coffin, only fresh rose petals.
As we made preparations for Mom’s burial, new people began arriving in Rowan, unnervingly handsome and odd people. I begged them to leave, but they stayed, because their enemies—my ancestors—were beginning to awaken
It has been a while since a book has captured me within the first few pages, this book did just that, for a lover of paranormal, fantasy and romance like myself, this book is surely to capture your attention. I was grateful when I was able to review this book through Netgalley. I have to say that I am in love with the characters, the overall plot and direction that this series is taking.
The pace of events was just right, as it held the attention of the reader (myself), I found myself staying up through the night just to finish this book and to find out what happens next.
I recommend this series to those looking for something new and fresh, as this was one book that I was unable to guess what could possibly happen next. Don’t miss out on this read, and be sure to add it to your list, or to get a copy for yourself!
About the Author:
Olivia Wildenstein grew up in New York City, the daughter of a French father with a great sense of humor, and a Swedish mother whom she speaks to at least three times a day. She chose Brown University to complete her undergraduate studies and earned a bachelor’s in comparative literature. After designing jewelry for a few years, Wildenstein traded in her tools for a laptop computer and a very comfortable chair. This line of work made more sense, considering her college degree.
When she’s not writing, she’s psychoanalyzing everyone she meets (Yes. Everyone), eavesdropping on conversations to gather material for her next book, baking up a storm (that she actually eats), going to the gym (because she eats), and attempting not to be late at her children’s school (like she is 4 out of 5 mornings, on good weeks).
Wildenstein lives with her husband and three children in Geneva, Switzerland, where she’s an active member of the writing community
