Blurb/Summary:Hawaii for the winter, accompanying her husband on a construction job, seemed like the most wonderful opportunity for Jess. That is until members of her husband's crew started dying and she gets visits from a ghost with a vengeance. In order to save them an she loves, Jess turns to a new friend, Trudy, to find out why the beach seems to want to kill everyone. Then, finding out more than they bargained for, the two women realize the only way to leave alive and stay alive, is to appeal to the Mother of the island, the Volcano Goddess, Pele, and to stop their husbands from working on demolishing the goddess's beach.
From the enchanting cover to the blurb, this book lured me in. A story about people dying mysteriously, ghosts, and a mystery, well this has it all. The Black Sand Beach is a great read for those who love paranormal with a mysterious twist. From reading the first page on, the author kept the intrigue going very well. With memorable characters, beautifully written description, and great dialogue, it didn't take me long to get through this book.
I am looking forward to other books written by Vanessa Hearne. I recommend The Black Sand Beach to any reader looking for a great book to read.
