Review @WendySparrow - Secrets of Skin and Stone by Wendy Sparrow writing as Wendy Laine

Secrets of Skin and Stone

Wendy Laine

Goodreads blurb:  Something is wrong in Hidden Creek. The sleepy Alabama town is more haunted than any place fiend hunter Grisham Caso has ever seen. Unearthed graves, curse bags, and spilled blood all point to an evil that could destroy his gargoyle birthright. The town isn’t safe for anyone, and everyone says fiery Piper Devon knows why.

Piper wants to leave Hidden Creek behind. She’s had enough of secrets—they hide in the shadows of her room and tell her terrible things are coming. Too-charming city boy Grisham might be her only chance to save herself.

To survive, Piper and Grisham have to shed their secrets and depend only on each other. But what lurks in Hidden Creek still might take everything away from them, including each other.

About the Author:  At home in the Pacific Northwest, Wendy Sparrow writes for both an adult and young adult crowd in many genres but always with a happily ever after. She has two wonderfully quirky kids, a supportive husband, and a perpetually messy house because she hates cleaning. She’s an advocate both online and in her community for autistic children in addition to actively trying to raise awareness about obsessive compulsive disorder. Most days she spends on Twitter procrastinating doing the dishes.

My Thoughts - 4 out of 5 Unicorns - I really liked it!!!

***I choose what I read and review based on what intrigues me!!  Yes, I got a review copy of this book, but no one tells me what to think, feel, or write about any book!

The cover is what intrigued me to check out the book!

I’m not sure if this will be a series, but right now it is just a standalone book!  It is Young Adult, but it does have some sensitive topics like OCD and cutting.  There is some kissing and hand holding, but there is murder and attempted murder and more.  I’d say that it is okay for high school students who are okay with all of the above, but I don’t know that I’d go younger than that.

Gris and Piper are a matched set of many secrets.  They both think they are monsters when really neither are.  I love reading about Gargoyles who are guardians and protectors.  There is tons of drama in this sleepy little town.  You don’t know who is at the heart of what is going on, but I did have suspicions as I read.  I really enjoyed this book!

I have enjoyed each of the books I’ve read by Wendy though I stick to the paranormal ones which is my favorite kind of books.  Wendy does a fantastic job bringing the story to life and making it feel real.  I can’t wait to see what she comes up with next!

I recommend this book to fans of gargoyles and perfectly good teens that people judge unfairly!!
