How do you live with yourself when you don't even know who you are?

On a chill October night, a girl goes missing setting the small town of Oakridge on edge. James has spent the last five years running from a past that still haunts him to this day. Now he finds himself thrust back into a life he thought he left behind. Finding out his new home may be haunted and reconnecting with an old friend while being thrust into a murder mystery, James finds himself trying to figure out which end is up while questioning his own sanity.
The author, Ms. Salazar, wrote a  good book.  It is a short read. I wish there was a little more suspense as to who the killer was.  I probably read about a third of the book and figured out who the killer was. The book moved fast and was well written with a few grammatical errors such as misspelled words and repeated words. the conversations seemed to go smoothly and weren't overly wordy. I thought it was refreshing that for a change, there was not any foul language, sex or drug issues.  Seems like every book you pick up these days is nothing but sex and drugs and every other word is a four letter word and it isn't "love". The book is mainly about a high schooler but I think all ages would enjoy it and parents don't have to worry about the language or the sexual content. I was totally surprised at how the book ended and I think you will be too.  With just a few minor editorial corrections the book is a good read, fast paced and a page turner. I hope Ms. Salazar continues to write these refreshing books.  Thank you, Ms. Salazar.
This book is a 4 STARS.

About the Author(from Amazon)

Brandi resides in Ohio as a devoted wife and mother of three beautiful children. She has many passions in life, writing being one. Unlike a lot of writers, Brandi doesn't see this as a job, but as a passion, and it comes naturally to her. Throughout her life she has played with it, writing quirky poems and short stories bordering on the bizarre, which no doubt reflects her self-proclaimed "weird" personality, but only over the last three years has she really focused on finding her voice. Writing is an outlet. It's what offers relief when she is overflowing with creative juices. It is what keeps her company on a quiet night. And, as all writer's can relate, it is what keeps her up far too late when she should be snuggled into her pillow. As of now, Brandi has quite a few projects she is working on, all unique in their own way, but all with an element of fantasy. A perfectionist at heart, she constantly strives to make each work better than the last. Here's to hoping you enjoy her work because there is more to come.
