Book Review: The Haunting at Bonaventure Circus by Jaime Jo Wright
The Haunting at Bonaventure Circus by Jaime Jo Wright is a captivating read from the very first page! I’ve read every book by this author and I truly believe this is her best book yet. It has characters that are real and broken, longing for a place to belong. I think the messages of hope in this book are so timely. I found myself highlighting sentences many times because I was struck by their poignancy and truth. The time slip nature of this novel was wonderful. I enjoyed both stores equally and found them fascinating as they overlapped. The author portrayed the circus so vividly, with all its good and bad. The circus itself was one of my favorite parts of this novel. I love a good mystery and I think I’m pretty good at figuring most of them out. I did not figure out this mystery at all, but it fit so perfectly when I looked back for the clues. I also loved the authors treatment of the “haunting” aspect of the novel. I found it equally terrifying and Biblically sound. I recommend this novel without reservation to anyone who loves history, mystery, and amazing storytelling. You won’t be disappointed. I received a digital copy of this book from the publisher with no obligations. These opinions are entirely my own.
