Wake the Hollow
Blurb (from Goodreads):
Forget the ghosts, Mica. It’s real, live people you should fear.

Tragedy has brought Micaela Burgos back to her hometown of Sleepy Hollow. It’s been six years since she chose to live with her father in Miami instead of her eccentric mother. And now her mother is dead.

This town will suck you in and not let go.

Sleepy Hollow may be famous for its fabled headless horseman, but the town is real. So are its prejudices and hatred, targeting Mica’s family as outsiders. But ghostly voices carry on the wind, whispering that her mother’s death was based on hate…not an accident at all. With the help of two very different guys—who pull at her heart in very different ways—Micaela must awaken the hidden secret of Sleepy Hollow…before she meets her mother’s fate.

Find the answers.

Unless, of course, the answers find you first.

Wake the Hollow by Gaby Triana

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Wake the Hollow “I need to know what was so important about it that she couldn’t move to Miami with me and my dad. There’s forces not letting me leave until I do.”

This was an okay story, but it struggled to hold my interest.

I felt quite sorry for Mica in this, having lost her mother so suddenly and then being haunted by apparitions. She didn’t have the best taste in men though.

The storyline in this started to lose me quite early on, and I struggled to stay interested. We had Mica trying to deal with her mother’s death, whilst searching for some sort of old manuscript which she didn’t even really know existed, whilst occasionally seeing ghosts and being chased by someone on a horse. We also got a bit of an odd romance where Mica started to have feelings for someone who she initially thought was creepy!

The ending to this was okay, but I didn’t quite believe who the killer turned out to be.

  1. The cover looks so intriguing, but your review deflated my excitement. Drat. :-)
