  • Amazing writing and premise!

    You know those books you put on your TBR list and think you’ll read them sooner or later? This book isn’t one of those. Fling this one to the top of the Read It ASAP pile. I would give this book six stars if I could! It read like a dream. To say this author has a way with words would be the understatement of the year. She not only ushers you into the story from the very first scene, but by the time she immerses you in her wintry mural on the town wall, your eyes won’t be able to drink the story in fast enough. Her descriptions are so vivid, you feel you’re part of the living, breathing fabric of the mural’s village and its inhabitants. Julia’s still in high school, but she’s seen more than her share of tragedy. Her mother and boyfriend perished in a fire, and now the locket her mother gave her is missing as well. When forgotten childhood friend Luke tells her tales that are hard to swallow but vaguely familiar, she struggles with overwhelming emotions: how is a necklace, a family curse, and her childhood entwined? And more importantly, how did she just fling herself into a Van Gogh painting? With her aunt’s help, she begins to unravel her secret past, and learns she’s a witch who can open portals into art. Then she learns her boyfriend might not be dead, but trapped inside her own mural, where her mother sent him – along with Luke's father. How, and why, the two are trapped in the painting is a twisted tale that had me feverishly flipping pages. But Julia’s running out of time to retrieve the two, because along with convincing them the painting in which they live is not real, she must get them out before it’s painted over to make room for a new one, leaving whoever is trapped inside lost… forever. To realize this is this author’s debut novel is mind-boggling. I simply can’t wait to see what she writes next!

    Thanks for your feedback!
