Lost Girl is a riveting, paranormal story with a sprinkling of romance. Allison Weathers moves to Dawson Mills in search of her mother that seemingly walked out of her life years before. However, when she moves into a giant, old farmhouse she finds more than she bargained for. She finds ghosts wandering her property and weird neighbors that like to spy. Now on top of finding out what happened to her mother, Allison has to finish her sculptures for an art show that is fast approaching, fix up the farmhouse, find out who the children are that keep coming in her yard, and fight her own demons in her head. Now that is a full plate!
Anne Francis Scott did an excellent job writing this first book of the trilogy. She kept me glued to the pages from beginning to end. I can’t wait to start the next book. The way she brings these characters to life makes it hard to remember this is a work of fiction. In my opinion, not many authors can end a book correctly (i.e. they end it too abruptly or they leave it too open ended) but Ms. Scott tied it up just right that it will smoothly transition into the second book’s story line.
If you enjoy paranormal fiction, you will love Lost Girl. If you get spooked easily you may still like this book. There are two main scary elements at play here. The first is the spirits haunting Allison; the second is the living that wants her dead. I am a person that spooks easily and I really enjoyed this book. I would not recommend it for anyone younger than a teen though.
