When people fear the unknown, being Gifted is a curse.
In the cornerstone of the rural south, Brooklyn, Mississippi, no one dares make eye contact with the strange Caibre family. Until the rewards are worth the cost. The townsfolk come, cash in hand, always at night, to pay for services only a Gifted can provide.
No matter the Gifts prevalent in her family, at twenty-one, Tallulah is expected to follow the path laid out for her: marriage, babies, and helping her mama teach the family home school program. She’s resigned to live the quiet life and stay out of trouble…until she meets Logan.
An outsider and all around rebel, Logan doesn’t care about her family’s reputation. Yet after a tragic loss wreaks havoc on the crumbling relationship between the Caibres and the townsfolk, Tallulah must decide if love and freedom are worth risking everything
I absolutely loved this story. I always thought I had things figured out, only to find out that I was wrong and wanted to keep reading without stopping to see how things would turn out. It has many surprising moments in it and finding out who was behind everything, my mouth literally dropped open from shock. Tallulah and her family go through so much with virtually no help from anyone except Logan. Tallulah and Logan’s relationship was also so cute and even though they are both so different you really root for them in the end. It’s definitely a good mystery book to read in the summer.
