Until Death Do Us Part by Cassie Leigh
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Final Score - 4 Stars!
This book had me in tears ... Millie because her life ended just before it really begun and Noah because he was trapped with no way out.
Millie was 18. Had just lost her child and her husband was a mistake, a youth fancy that turned in an abusive jerk. To escape her pain and loneliness, she resorted to extreme measures. As a result, she now "haunts" her once childhood home. Year after year, seeing people come & go from the house only add to her loneliness until...
Noah comes buy a new fixer upper along with his fiancee and decides to take a chance on the house. His fiancee is shallow, childish and utterly lacking in any qualities. She sees the house as an end to her idea of the perfect wedding, rather spending the money on a lavish ceremony instead of her future.
I loved how Millie and Noah connected. I was surprised by it at first, but the more I read, the deeper I became invested in these two not only ending up together (against some extreme odds) but having it play out in way that plausible.
The author delivered on all accounts. The only issue I take, which is why I scored it a 4 out of a 5 is the epilogue. There was none and I feel that we should have at least seen how Millie and Noah ending up in the future. It would have solidified the ending more.
This story will be a definite re-read during the Halloween week and even beyond.
