Publisher's Summary

Jonestown. The Solar Temple. Heaven's Gate. On August 22, 1990, on a small island off the coast of Maine, the Payson Church of Tomorrow joins the ranks of those infamous cult suicides when 34 members burn to death inside their old chapel. At 10 years old, Payson member Erin Solomon watches helplessly as the church and its congregation are reduced to ash and embers.
More than 20 years later, Erin Solomon is an accomplished investigative journalist when she receives word that she has inherited Payson Isle...and all its ghosts. She returns to Maine to learn the truth behind the tragedy that has haunted her since childhood, aided by the rakish mentor who's stood by her side since she was a teenager; her trusty mutt, Einstein; and a mysterious stranger with his own dark past.
Soon Erin is enmeshed in a decades-old conspiracy rooted in lust, delusion, and betrayal as she fights to unearth the secrets of the Payson Church of Tomorrow - secrets someone will kill to keep buried.

Great atmospheric mystery

I received this audio book in exchange for an honest review.

I thoroughly enjoyed this story. I thought that the mystery was well played out and the characters interesting. I really liked Erin as a character, she was brave, down to earth and likable. I enjoyed her friendship with Diggs and her less than stellar relationship with her mother was interesting. The story finished at a satisfying point but still had me crying out for the next installment.

The author did a great job with the atmospherics throughout and I found the town to be gloriously creepy.

I liked the narrator, however the quality of the audio wasn't fantastic with sudden changes in volume and the sound of the narrator's breathing clearly audible. Initially this was distracting, however the breathing reduced significantly after a while. Don't let this put you off as the quality of the story and the pleasant voice of the narrator more than made up for these audio niggles.

Sarcasm, mystery, romance

Story is fun. Mystery is intriguing. Love triangle entertains. Could do without some of the swearing. But that's just me...don't like lots of swearing. This is a little more than I prefer. The Kindle ebook has a few weird typos that can make you stumble over a sentence, but I hope that doesn't turn a reader away because the story is good. I'm not sure about the Audible performance. I didn't like how fast the actor reads. Also, sometimes the actor reads so fast that she sounds a little muffled, and at times the audio rose significantly in volume and it sounded strange. None of these technical issues messed up the story for me. I hope it wouldn't bother anyone else so much that they wouldn't get to the end, which isn't fully wrapped up. So, I'll want to move on to book two and get to a is a good read.

Shows promise

I kind of liked this but found it a little hard to get in to initially as it felt a little jumpy between the past and present. Initially I wasn't sure I could stick with the narration but I got used to it after a bit. I liked the concept and ideas and think I would listen to more in the series maybe.

A thrill a minute!

A brilliant story diving in and out of the past with more twists and turns than a rattle snake. Melissa Redmond steps up to the plate and brings the story to life. As this is the start of a pentatology, don't expect all your questions to be answered but this is the sort of book where you stay up far too late trying to get to the end only to regret that it's finished...I can't wait to get book two!
