Forget the ghosts, Mica. It’s real, live people you should fear.
Tragedy has brought Micaela Burgos back to her hometown of Sleepy Hollow. It’s been six years since she chose to live with her father in Miami instead of her eccentric mother. And now her mother is dead.
This town will suck you in and not let go.
Sleepy Hollow may be famous for its fabled headless horseman, but the town is real. So are its prejudices and hatred, targeting Mica’s family as outsiders. But ghostly voices carry on the wind, whispering that her mother’s death was based on hate…not an accident at all. With the help of two very different guys—who pull at her heart in very different ways—Micaela must awaken the hidden secret of Sleepy Hollow…before she meets her mother’s fate.
Find the answers.
Unless, of course, the answers find you first.
After six years of being gone from Sleepy Hollow Mika returns home after her Mother’s death and a note she had received urging her to come home. Mika meets up with her best friend Bram who she has just reconnected with recently.
Weird things start to happen to Mica when she returns to town, and she not only dreams about things, but she starts seeing them as well. Things aren’t always what they seem in this place, and she finds herself searching for answers.
I did like this book, and I liked the mystery to it along with the atmosphere. I kept reading and wanting to know what would happen next, but I wanted more Sleepy Hollow things. Literally.
I already could tell there would be a love triangle from the summary, but the first guy Bram I was annoyed with rather quickly, and the other guy Dane while likable I think their relationship was way underdeveloped. It was more her being attracted to both of these guys, but she still acted like a flake while one second it was “Bram” and then the next it was “Dane” to trust.
The romance did not over shadow the plot at all, but my main issue was I just didn’t like Mika. I just didn’t like being in her head because she did a lot of idiotic moves and acted pretty immature. I just wanted a stronger character.
The story itself was really good and a very entertaining read. I have always been interested in anything Sleepy Hollow. I loved the things that Mika would find while searching and discovering that things may not be as she thought. Although mostly predictable it is definitely worth a read!
