Forget the ghosts, Mica. It’s real, live people you should fear.
Tragedy has brought Micaela Burgos back to her hometown of Sleepy Hollow. It’s been six years since she chose to live with her father in Miami instead of her eccentric mother. And now her mother is dead.
This town will suck you in and not let go.
Sleepy Hollow may be famous for its fabled headless horseman, but the town is real. So are its prejudices and hatred, targeting Mica’s family as outsiders. But ghostly voices carry on the wind, whispering that her mother’s death was based on hate…not an accident at all. With the help of two very different guys—who pull at her heart in very different ways—Micaela must awaken the hidden secret of Sleepy Hollow…before she meets her mother’s fate.
Find the answers.
Unless, of course, the answers find you first.

Micaela returns to Sleepy Hollow after she mother dies. She recieved a letter days before her mothered died for her to return back to Sleepy Hollow. Micaela suspects that something is going on in this town. It makes it more suspicious that Micaela’s mother sent the letter to Micaela’s best friend and not to her. As Micaela learns more about what is going on in the town, she suspects more and more that her mother’s death was not an accident.

I had a hard time trying to connect with any of the characters. It is hard to fall in love with a book when none of the characters appeal to you. I have to say that I was quite impressed with the fact that Micaela grew as much as she did through out this book because that is the only thing that was interesting to me. The story didn’t grip my attention at all and I felt like the setting wasn’t developed enough. I find this just to be an okay book for me.
