Rating: ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
Doesn't that eerily beautiful cover just say it all?!

Stacy Claflin's vivid setting portrayal and character mastery have managed, once again, to keep me up most of the night! She has brought the haunted house genre to new highs with the latest book in her Brannon House thriller series, The Darkest Garden!

Kenzie and Ember, aunt and niece, rediscovered one another under the unfortunate circumstances in book one and have managed to grow together and be just what the other needs since then. They have become quite the pair, shedding light on their ancestors' dark past all the while navigating their newfound roles... and family! 

The title, The Darkest Garden, is more than fitting as this may possibly be her darkest book yet! The whispers and haunted vibes are one thing, yes, but that neighbor and the garden at the Brannon House, shrouded in sinister familial history, increase the overall chill factor in more ways than one! 

I can't honestly think of a single element about this story that I did not like. I've enjoyed getting to know these characters and hope their stories continue on, unwrapping the Brannon House mysteries one-by-one. The Darkest Garden was an easy 5-star rating for me, Stacy knows just how to pique my interest with her fast-paced works of twisted thrills. If you haven't yet started this series and need a quick read, maybe a change of pace from your usual reads - pick this up. I've no doubt that you'll soon be converted into a fan, racing to follow it all up with her Alex Mercer Thriller Series and his many exploits. Don't just take my word for it though - go find out for yourself. 

Many thanks go to the author, Stacy Claflin, for providing me with a complimentary copy of The Darkest Garden in exchange for an honest review.

Book Blurb:
How many secrets can one house hide?

Kenzi Brannon has always dreaded going down to the dark basement of the old Brannon house she grew up in. Now an adult, she's returned home to find her apprehension has intensified. She avoids that locked door and the secrets beyond in hope that ignoring the problem will keep long-forgotten horrors buried.

A neighbor's obsession with her house and history has rekindled Kenzi's old fears. And reconnecting with someone from her past may force her to face what she's been running from her entire life.

And that might not be the worst of it.

The garden her family is restoring could conceal something far more terrifying than anything inside the house. Something that could rip her newly found family apart.

Some people say the truth will set you free. Kenzi can't help but feel that it will destroy everything.
