Description: Jacob Duke has come back to Braketon—a sleepy, backwoods town bordering Dover, the mental institution where he spent his formative years. Jacob’s intention is to enjoy Braketon’s woods and water for the first time as a free man, but he soon discovers that Dover isn’t through with him yet. Driven by a curse that compels him to grant any wish he hears, Jacob is drawn back into his disturbing former life by a young boy’s desire to see his own father dead.
Complicating things are Lori Nelson, Jacob’s friend-with-benefits who continues to put new boyfriends in his path, and Motown, Jacob’s friend from his years at Dover, who carries a secret that rocks Jacob’s foundation and makes him question his own morality.
Stonefly is a suspense thriller that rockets to a surprising, but satisfying end.
I received an ecopy of this book from Smith Publicity for an honest review. I also received 2 hard copies to give away and I’m giving away one copy here (see below) and one copy in my store.
Stonefly is one of the best books I’ve read this year. It is thought provoking and has a good, original plot. I like Scott Holliday’s writing style and the book was an easy read. It has a different take on the genie in the bottle which I found intriguing. My suggestion to you is to let the book take you along for the ride. So many things don’t seem to make sense, such as the reason Jacob loses his hearing, but eventually you get all of the answers. It not only makes sense but I actually understood/agreed with Jacob’s decisions.
I definitely recommend this book! Available on Amazon.
