[Book Review] This Beautiful World by Elisabeth Jackson

This Beautiful WorldThis Beautiful World
She came home to the chilling mystery that had haunted her since childhood and found the one romance she always regretted not having...

As children, RaeAnne and her sidekick King were held captive after they discovered the body of a boy their age in a crate of apples in their small town's peculiar orchard. Now RaeAnne is grown and the mother of a troubled young daughter. After her mother is killed in an accident, she travels home to her father with her daughter. 

But RaeAnne finds that she is not welcomed by everyone, and frightening incidents start to happen involving her and her family. As RaeAnne unravels the mysteries of her childhood, including what happened to her older brother, who vanished on the same night RaeAnne and King found terror in the orchard, she reunites with King.

With great family dynamic and vibe overall, I couldn't get my thoughts straight after reading This Beautiful World. I loved ReaAnne and sympathized with her and her horrible past that she had to live through. She was very strong and I loved that she was so caring and open to new feelings after experiencing what she experienced. 

When Rea and King face some unexpected events, they would have to go through bricks to try and make their future better. Although to do that they would have to figure out the past and present first. 

Final thought? Definitely a great read for anyone who enjoys mystery with a slight flare of romance. Although the book started out kind of slow, it continued to grasp my attention the whole way through. 

Elisabeth JacksonElisabeth Jackson loves the outdoors and dogs, rescued dogs in particular. 

This Beautiful World is her debut novel and blends haunting childhood secrets, romantic themes, second chances, and a mystery in a small town setting. 

When she is not writing small town Romances and Mysteries, she works as a freelance business writer. Her characters are inspired by the rural towns she has visited and lived in.
