“Wake the Hollow” is about Mica, a girl who returns to her hometown of Sleepy Hollow when she receives a mysterious note from her mother, a woman she left six years prior to live with her father in Miami. Before Mica gets there, her mother dies. Mica decides to stay in town, where she starts learning more about her mother and her past until weird things start happening to her and she has no idea who she can trust.
Growing up in New York, not far from the town of Sleepy Hollow, I really connected with this story! I had very high expectations and the author completely blew me away!
It had everything I could want in a good book: great, unique characters, thick suspense that kept me on my toes, a gripping mystery, a sweet, unexpected romance and a town with an interesting history and past.
This is such an amazing story! From the first chapter, you're drawn in and hooked. I connected with Mica almost immediately and loved seeing the world through her eyes. What she felt, I felt. When she didn't know who to trust, I didn't know either! It was awesome!
Overall, “Wake the Hollow” is an excellent story! There's nothing predictable about it! You'll be hooked and guessing until the very end!
Tragedy has brought Micaela Burgos back to her hometown of Sleepy Hollow. It's been six years since she chose to live with her affluent father in Miami instead of her history-obsessed eccentric mother. And now her mother is dead.
But while Sleepy Hollow was made immortal by literature, the town is real. So are its prejudices and hatred, targeting Mica's Cuban family and the secrets of their heritage that her mother obsessed over. But ghostly voices whisper in the wind, questioning whether her mother’s death might not have been an accident after all, and Mica knows there's a reason she's here.
With the help of two very different guys—who pull at her heart in very different ways—Micaela must uncover the hidden secret of Sleepy Hollow…before she meets her mother's fate.
