REVIEW: Willow Point (A Harbour Falls Mystery #2) – S.R. Grey

Released: April 17th, 2013

With the Harbour Falls Mystery solved, author Maddy Fitch hopes secrets and lies are behind her. But a cryptic letter from her former best friend would seem to indicate otherwise. Is the man Maddy fell in love with while solving the Harbour Falls Mystery, the gorgeous and rich Adam Ward, keeping a damning and potentially dangerous secret from her? Only the writer of the letter, Ami Hensley, knows for sure. But Maddy is hesitant to confront her, since the last time they saw one another Ami tried to kill her.

But if Maddy wants answers--ones that could potentially save Adam--then she must face her fears and visit her former friend. Unfortunately for Maddy, Ami is currently locked up in the creepiest place in Maine, an old gothic structure that houses the criminally insane, known simply as Willow Point.

Will this new mystery tear Maddy and Adam apart?

Who else is in on Adam's secret?

And will Maddy find the answers before it's too late?

Another heart-stopping page turner from the author of Harbour Falls. Willow Point promises to keep you on the edge of your seat.

2nd in A Harbour Falls Mystery series.

*mature themes*
"Once again my world was being turned upside down. I could feel it. I imagined a giant hourglass being turned with me in it. I just hoped I didn't end up buried."

This is one of the books I will be reviewing for a blog tour and the final of the trilogy review will be posted on MARCH 10TH.

Willow Point is steamier and much more intense than the first book of the trilogy. There are so many twists and turns as we learn more and more of Adam's secrets and the life-threatening situations they are placed in. Maddy must face the worst of challenges in order to save the man she loves. But, of course, there are always things in the way. S.R. Grey's writing was extremely enjoyable here and easy to read, which I absolutely love. 

This time, the novel focuses on Maddy as she journeys on to discover Adam's secret which will either save him or break them apart. Or both. Willow Point is an asylum for the criminals, which is where the culprit to Chelsea Hannigan's death, who we discover in the first installment, resides (I WILL REFER TO THEM AS "Z". As "Z" is mentally unstable and seemingly dangerous to society, "Z" is placed in the mental facility. But of course, "Z" has their ways of sending messages to Maddy.

When Maddy receives a letter from "Z" that threatens her trust in Adam, she digs deeper into the mystery and becomes even more confused about the man she loves.

So Maddy *SPOILERISH* breaks up with Adam *END OF SPOILER* in order to carry out her plan. She moves into a small house just off the island to find out more about the cryptic clues that "Z" sent her. 

But then she also meets the super hot, super dangerous Stowe. He is her next door neighbor who's so freaking good looking. But Stowe is also hiding secrets of his own.

On the other hand, Adam has to deal with Maddy's changes in decisions and opinions and, of course, what she's keeping from him. But Adam also has his job to deal with, which we will see will connect to the final book of the trilogy. 

This book is more gritty and heart-racing than Harbour Falls and definitely less predictable. In the first one, I could still guess who's the culprit. But here? HOLY SHIIIITTTTT.

I honestly didn't expect that to happen. Although I was hoping for something more mindblowing and manipulative, this one was a pretty damn good mystery. 

The ending, is again, another cliffhanger from S.R. Grey. And so I'm off to read Wickingham Way! Cheers, everyone!
