I have never had the pleasure of reading any novels by Andrews and Austin until I picked up White Horse Point. I’m glad I got this book because I did enjoy reading the story, even though I found a few glitches in the tale.

First the good things about the novel, and there are a lot of these. The story itself is awesome and well written. I love how the intrigue/mystery aspect of the book starts out with little hints and gradually increases as you keep reading. The story is told in first person though the eyes of mystery writer Taylor James, so everything we see is through her perspective. This is also well done. I liked how the paranormal aspect of the story is incorporated into the tale as well. The authors use it to add to the mystery and to help the romance in the story.

For the most part, the characters are well written, though this is the area where I felt there were glitches, mostly with Taylor. By the end of the first chapter or two, I thought I had a pretty good idea of this character’s personality. Then she traveled to the lakehouse and started behaving in a manner I didn’t think was correct for the character as I saw her. I can’t give examples without using spoilers, but there were several times I wanted to yell at Taylor, “What the hell are you doing?!” I understand some of those actions probably had to be done to move the mystery and danger in the plot along, but it still felt wrong for that character.

Overall, I feel this is a very good intrigue and thriller novel with a lovely romance added in, and I enjoyed reading it. I will also be looking for more from these authors. I’m giving this a 3.5 star rating and moving it to 4 stars overall.

I received an ARC from NetGalley and Bold Strokes Books for an honest review.
