Bootleg Cove by Devin Govaere
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I received a free copy of Bootleg Cove from the publisher in return for an honest review.
Willie Douglas is looking for a new start and moves with her son to Bootleg Cove. Not long after moving into the old remote building Willie finds herself welcoming some homeless teenagers into her home. Just as she feels herself feeling happy and content for the first time in a long time, things take a turn and she realises everything is not as it seems.
This was a great wee read but I must admit it took a little getting used to the main characters name. I kept having to remind myself that she was female because I'm so used to the name Willie being generally a male name.
The story revolves around an old building that sits in Bootleg Cove and the environment and scenes within the story were written in a way that I could picture it all so easily, it almost felt like I was there. The story had a few nice twists, some that I had kind of saw coming, some that I didn't and one in particular that hit me like a ton of bricks.
Bootleg Cove was a quick read for me, I really enjoyed the plot and the pace was perfect. Although it's listed as horror, it's not high on the horror factor scale, it's more light horror mixed with some paranormal.
