Great beauty hides dark secrets...
Seventeen-year-old Anastasia Lockhart has never led an easy life, but when she starts getting into serious trouble, she’s sent to live with her grandparents in Cedar Falls. The small, picturesque town hasn’t changed since she visited four years ago, with one exception – the presence of a handsome, mysterious boy named Frost. Despite warnings from her grandparents and friends to stay away from Frost, Anastasia can’t deny their attraction, and the more time they spend together, the deeper in love they fall. Unfortunately, Frost has a secret that is beyond Anastasia’s wildest imagination, and she soon finds herself in the midst of a supernatural legend that has haunted Cedar Falls for years.
Can Anastasia and Frost’s love really overcome anything, or are their fates much darker?

The owner’s son ends up being Frost who takes an immediate liking to Anastasia. As the grow closer it becomes clear that Frost and the town are hiding something.
In an Oyster Shell – It was a good fun read.
The Pearls – I always love a small town setting. There can be so much drama in a small town. Cedar falls is no exception. I like how the author captures the hysteria and paranoia that can happen in any place but especially in a small town.
I like the accuracy of the title. It was really foretelling to the whole story. The cover worked as well to go along with the story. I like how the author was right on with all the intricate details that go along with the book.
The writing was crisp and clean. The plot was engrossing, with lots of twists and turns.
The Sand – There was insta-love with the romance which is not ideal. The pacing was slightly off in some places.
