Noelle buys a house to rehab far from memories she is trying to get past. Little does she know what she will encounter when the house holds scary secrets and a relative of the former owner who wants her gone is still lurking on the property. Learning who to trust is only half the battle. Deputy Derek and his sister prove friendly and reliable. But Noelle comes across a blue diary of a ten year old girl that contains more mysteries that could be connected to a missing college girl.
This is a well plotted, thrilling story with characters you can relate to. The evil is portrayed with sensitivity and faith is seen as solid and growing.
A new heroine from Ms. Warrens. We will hopefully see more of Noelle in future books.

"The world whipped around her in a dizzying funnel of lights and houts, people in uniforms pressing in from all directions. Noelle sat motionless in the street, barely able to breathe. His little body was too still. Too broken."
Noelle's world shattered that night, like the pieces of headlights scattered across the dark street. There was no rebuilding her life around the grave of her child.
Adrift in her grief, Noelle finds herself drawn to an old house as rundown and weary as her spirit. She might not be able to mend her own brokenness, but maybe she can restore this abandoned structure to its former beauty. Determined, she throws herself into a renovation project with the unexpected help of a local. But she soon learns that her new home comes with a blood-stained history and a chilling reputation.
When she stumbles across a diary written by a child with a disturbing life, and a teenage girl vanishes from the village, clues leave Noelle wondering if her house might somehow be connected. Someone -- or something -- wants her gone, but she has no intention of leaving without discovering the truth.
