Amazon Synopsis: Did his book raise the dead? Outraged when The Post Gazette overlooks him for a promotion, thirty-nine year old sports writer, Christian Kane, quits and moves to the country to write fiction. Inspiration flows from a grave he stumbles upon in the woods. He compiles The Legend of Rachel Petersen, a fascinating story revolving around the dead twelve year old girl lying beneath the weathered tombstone. His book becomes a Best Seller; then Hollywood makes it in to a blockbuster movie. Kane becomes rich and famous but only to have Rachel rise from the grave to seek revenge on him for slandering her name!
My Review: I enjoyed The Legend of Rachel Petersen. I read the book easily and the writing flowed smoothly. I really connected to the character of Christian Kane. I loved his reaction to being overlooked for the promotion. I found myself laughing out loud. Also, loved his wife's reaction when he told her quit his job. I could feel her stress.
It felt like I read two separate stories within one book. First, Christian's journey in writing his book and locating a publisher. Second, the life and death of Rachel Petersen and the two young brothers, Seth and Thaddeus, discovering the circumstances surrounding her death. This concept really worked! The ending....WOW...I didn't see it coming! I don't want to reveal any spoilers but it gave me GOOSE BUMPS!!!
I rated The Legend of Rachel Petersen 4 STARS!
