“Stay and play, sweet Elizabeth, for I have much to tell you. Wouldn’t you rather play the game? Learn why I was cast to begin with? There’s a reason. I promise you that.”
Quiet seventeen-year-old Elizabeth Parker is looking forward to another mellow summer with her goofy relatives, sun tanning at the beach and staying out of trouble. Which is why the thought of her younger cousin participating in what is, clearly, a setup disguised as an initiation, worries her to the point of intervention.
One that backfires … big time …
Mistaken for her cousin, Elizabeth finds herself transported to an abandoned plantation, a place deeply haunted with unresolved mystery and where horror reigns every summer between July 20 and August 13. It is there, locked in the pitch dark, where she finds herself paired with the strange and mysterious Adam Hunt—an unexpected trespasser with his own agenda. Together, they find a list of instructions—follow the clues to various possessions in the house, store them in the backpack provided, and find the key that will grant escape. Having snuck in to document the haunting, Adam offers to help her find the key so long as she helps him record paranormal activity along the way. But as they make their way through the house, they soon discover unexplained anomalies …
For the first time in the plantation’s recorded history, the haunting deviates from its known cycle of events, thrusting Elizabeth and Adam in a series of perilous circumstances that ensue long after the night is over.
As the last day of the haunting draws nearer, and as forces beyond their control ignite their growing attraction, Elizabeth and Adam must work together to uncover the plantation’s mysterious past before it’s too late. Or die trying.
“It’s been a very long time since I’ve found a story that is as consistently compelling as this one. Every moment of the plot was equally as addicting as every other moment. I found this story to be incredibly creative. I’ve read a couple of stories that worked with similar concepts, but nothing quite like this one.” – A Page to Turn Reviews
“Loved, loved, loved this book. Its intense, action packed, a bit scary, thrilling, has beautifully expressed emotions and an awesome plot. Sometimes you get the feel of an R.L Stine book. But this book is geared towards more mature audiences. The chemistry between Adam and Elizabeth is breathtaking.” – Enjoying Life a Day at a Time
“It’s been a while since I’ve had a good paranormal read and this was definitely one! I was fascinated by the concept and both loved the characters as well as the plot. It was well paced and managed to keep my attention throughout. Overall, the book was creepy and fantastic. I definitely recommend it if you’re a fan of spooky reads.” – Reviews of a Shameless Fangirl
“I have not read much of paranormal/ghost based stories. So it was a treat to go into a read without any expectations and have an engaging read. It left me wanting more and trying to figure why I haven’t read more of that genre. I wish I had come across this author sooner. A splendid tale with the right amount of thrill and mystery!” – The Book Drealms
“A supernatural, paranormal, romance with a twist, Intertwined left me questioning the logistics of curses, the power behind family ties, the madness of revenge, and a desire for answers.” – Rae, A New Look On Books
“I love love LOVE this book! It’s got everything that keeps the pages of a young adult novel turning: a love story, paranormal activity, and a mystery to be solved. It’s so wonderful to find a YA novel that is not littered with vampires or simply about a teenage girl with a crush. The characters are well developed, unique, and individualistic. I can’t wait for the next book in the series!” – Angele Can’t Even
