Publisher's Summary

Nothing much exciting rolls through Violet White’s sleepy, seaside town...until River West comes along. River rents the guesthouse behind Violet’s crumbling estate, and as eerie, grim things start to happen, Violet begins to wonder about the boy living in her backyard. Is River just a crooked-smiling liar with pretty eyes and a mysterious past? Or could he be something more? Violet’s grandmother always warned her about the Devil, but she never said he could be a dark-haired boy who takes naps in the sun, who likes coffee, who kisses you in a cemetery...who makes you want to kiss back. Violet’s already so knee-deep in love, she can’t see straight. And that’s just how River likes it. Blending faded decadence and the thrill of gothic horror, April Genevieve Tucholke weaves a dreamy, twisting contemporary romance, as gorgeously told as it is terrifying.

This is the last time I try this author. YA Dr. Suess strikes again

I read Wink Poppy Midnight and the authors repetition of words was incredibly distracting. I chalked it up to "maybe that was just her general tone for this book" and I liked the development of those characters well enough that I was willing to give her another try.

"Blue blue blue"
"Hate. Hate hate."
Gone gone gone"
"Stared, stared stared"
and on and on and on. Whatever whatever whatever

It's just her writing style and I can't get behind it.
Does she get paid by the word?
Sadly these characters weren't strong enough to suck me in and keep me going. I was thrilled when it ended and caught myself repeating the words before she could during the last few chapters.
The concept of this story is pretty great but the weak female character and how most everyone is a terrible person really leaves a lot to be desired.

I'm not getting the sequel (obviously) just terrible. Terrible, terrible.
