Purchase Link Kincaid's Hope on Amazon
Beth Kincaid endured an unhappy childhood and left the small town life to start over in the city. Her bottled up emotions from the past cause her to live the “tidy” life she thinks she wants to live—yet does not realize isn’t good for her emotional sanity. When a personal crisis ensues, she must return to her childhood home and all of the issues from the past overwhelm her and are a catalyst to bring necessary change to her life. She discovers secrets and learns the truth about the woman who raised her. These revelations unravel her tightly-bound emotions and move her forward into a life-changing journey.
I read Ms. Greene’s debut novel, Beach Rental, and enjoyed that book and was not disappointed with her second novel, Kincaid’s Hope. This is a unique modern-day romantic suspense novel, with eerie gothic tones—a well-played combination, expertly woven into the storyline. This was a different type of book from Ms. Greene’s debut; yet, not in the least disappointing. Rather, she rode the wave of excellent writing in her first novel with the same complex writing style which easily draws the reader in to these interesting characters’ lives.
The characters were relatable and I enjoyed immersing myself into their story. Once I started reading, I had a hard time stopping at my self-imposed two chapters a night rule. I enjoy reading romantic suspense and loved the intense, suspenseful scenes woven into this novel. I highly recommend Kincaid’s Hope and look forward to reading more of Ms. Greene’s books.
