Book Review: The Muir House by Mary DeMuth

Willa Muir is haunted by her past. She sees snippets of her young self and cannot fit them into the puzzle that fills her mind everyday. Willa's boyfriend, Hale Landon, places a ring on her finger and asks her to marry him. Willa takes the ring. . . and runs. . .Runs home to Rockwall, Texas, her childhood home, to untangle the mysteries that haunt her dreams at night and her memories during the day. Once she returns to The Muir House, Willa struggles to find the clues she needs to solve her mystery. Why is the caretaker of the house protecting someone? Does she still have feelings for an old flame? What about her mother who is on her deathbed in a nursing home--why does she keep saying the same words that make no sense to Willa?

Willa is a young woman struggling to make sense of her past so that she can move forward into her future. This book is full of mystery, and I must say, I didn't guess some of the outcomes. . .which made the book that much more interesting to me. I've never really read a mystery like this one and I found it intriguing.

Full Disclosure: This book was sent to me at no charge by Zondervan. I was not required to write a positive review.
