Camille Stone finds herself in the small town of Green Peaks, Wyoming with her newly widowed mother.  Packing up their car and leaving the place they called home was a decision made for both. Cami and her mother suffered bullying and heartbreak after Cami’s father chose to drive drunk, causing the death of the school’s star quarterback and his cheer captain girlfriend. Green Peaks offers a fresh start in a vacant, 100-year-old home Uncle Pete secures for Cami and her mom.

Things are looking up with their new proximity to family. Uncle Pete’s popularity in the town as the school principal and leader of the school board certainly helps.  Cami immediately hits it off with new friends and finds her way quickly as a senior at her new school. But, while storing her dad’s old things and cleaning the old, long-vacant house they now call home, Cami stumbles upon a desk in the attic with a well-used candle.  Oddly, this desk appears out of the ordinary as it is the first dust-free item she’s come across in the house, and it contains an origami-folded love letter from “Z.”

“Letters in the Attic” by Meredith Lindsey isn’t quite as it seems on the surface.  While Z’s letters begin in the attic, a whole new scary and exciting world begins to rear its head in Green Peaks.  From serial killers to magic-wielders, Meredith Lindsey’s debut novel holds more than simply what the title implies.  Feeling part “Twilight” series, part psychological thriller, Lindsey grips readers’ wildest imaginations and twists a tale like no other.  Just as this small town seems to embrace Cami, her world begins to rip apart at the seams.

A whirlwind of a read, I couldn’t get enough of this paranormal romantic thriller.  Slowly peeling back the secrets hidden away in this small town, readers will be captivated by the plot and shocking twists.  Using the relatable experience of starting at a new school, making new friends, and looking for love, Cami is an easily likable character as she navigates a pivotal moment in her life.   Readers are sure to enjoy this genre-bending welcome into life in Green Peaks, Wyoming with Meredith Lindsey’s “Letters in the Attic.”
