Nothing good comes from living in the Devil’s swamp.
Willow Bell thinks moving to the Okefenokee area isn’t half bad, but nothing prepares her for what awaits in the shadows of the bog.
Girls are showing up dead in the swamp. And she could be next.
Everyone warns Willow to stay away from Beau Cadwell―the bad boy at the top of their suspect list as the serial killer tormenting the small town.
But beneath his wicked, depthless eyes, there’s something else that draws Willow to him.
When yet another girl he knew dies, though, Willow questions whether she can trust her instincts…or if they’re leading to her own death.
Touted as a YA Romantic Thriller, Wicked Charm by Amber Hart does its best to make the reader experience the romance with all of the thrills and chills.
Willow Bell has just moved in with her grandmother in a swamp – and her first glimpse of a person her age, is literally the boy next door, someone who not only catches her eye, but is also attracted to him.
Beau Caldwell might have been the “boy next door” but he is the bad boy of the town. He might be charming, but I did find him to be the jerk of the highest degree and a playboy in making.
The story is told in dual POVs – both Willow and Beau got the chance to get their thoughts, opinions and contemplations and it was the one part of the book that I unequivocally adored about the book!
But the romance outweighed the thriller/mystery aspect of the book, which ended up being a wee bit predictable but it was nevertheless enjoyable.
I do wish that there wasn’t the aspect of almost insta – love that plagues the YA protagonists most of the time, also ended up afflicting the characters of this book as well.
The writing though saves the day for me in this book – it is simple, effective and engrosses the reader without even the reader, which made it possible for me to fly through the book in a record time.
