Thorn Abbey by Nancy Ohlin

Saturday, December 1, 2012
Synopsis: Gone but not forgotten ...

Becca was the perfect girlfriend: smart, gorgeous, and loved by everyone at New England’s premier boarding school, Thorn Abbey. 

But Becca’s dead. And her boyfriend, Max, can’t get over his loss.

Then Tess transfers to Thorn Abbey. She’s shy and insecure—everything that Becca wasn’t. And despite her roommate’s
warnings, she falls for brooding Max.

Now Max finally has a reason to move on. Except, it won’t be easy.
Becca may be gone, but she’s not quite ready to let him go...

Review: Thorn Abbey was a haunting tale filled with plenty of creeptastic moments. The story's setting is beautiful and reminiscent of other story settings like Wuthering Heights & works by Jane Austen. I really enjoyed this retelling of the story Rebecca and I felt that it was wonderfully done with its rich detail. Ohlin throws a wonderful twist in the story and she does a superb job keeping the eeriness of the events revolving around Rebecca alive. Tess is an interesting character although sometimes she came off a little TOO insecure, but for the most part i understood her desire for acceptance (although she put up with Devon a little too much). I loved the dark and brooding young Max and I felt like his character did a wonderful job propelling the mystery of the story. From the beginning I didn't really like Devon so I didn't feel invested enough to care about her toward the end, although it did make me curious to know what exactly happened to her. I think Thorn Abbey is a nice mixture of a ghost story and a romance. Overall, I enjoyed the story but I wish certain aspects would've been fleshed out a little more. I do think this is a wonderful re-telling and I think paranormal readers will definitely enjoy it.
