Review: Envy by: Gregg Olsen

Envy (Empty Coffin, #1)Envy by Gregg Olsen

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

The small town of Port Gamble has been struck with a tragedy that strikes a cord in everyone. Katelyn Berkley is electrocuted in the tub, while her family was downstairs. Was this her own depression, or something more heinous that snuck through the open window of her room that night?

Hayley and Taylor Ryan, twins with unique and special connection, seem to have a connection to Katelyn now and are recieving messages that let them know that even though the coroner's report has said accidential this was so much more than that.

Mr. Olsen writes a story unlike any other I have read, making a heartfelt mystery, with twists, turns, the anguish of loss and grief, the desperation of searching for truth and the need for justice. The characters jump off the pages with the reader immediately placed into the scenery of Port Gamble, the homes, the faces, the history, and the secrets that they all seem to hold.

Wow! This is a part of a series called the Empty Coffin Series and I am hooked. There is a unique way to the writing style, an amazing storyline in regards to the twins, Hayley and Taylor - This is a can't miss read book or series.. warning, a sneak peek of Betrayal will get you hooked on the series- is enclosed in the back of the book.
