    Girl at the Grave is engrossing and atmospheric, it will keep you guessing until the very last page! ...

    Where to start with thoughts on Girl at the Grave? It might seem a little macabre, but I definitely picked this book up because of the promised blend of murder and romance. When those two things are well combined in a historical fiction novel, that's my perfect storm. I hoped for a dar...

    It has been many years since I have read such a compelling, total baffling historical romance/mystery! Throughout the book, I was constantly changes my theories on "Who did it"! This very talented author captivates the reader's interest from the very first page, then slowly builds ...

    I'm always a little wary when it comes to debut's because I have been burned in the past. I have a little section on my shelf of beautiful hardback debut's that were all meh but I refuse to get rid of because bitch they were expensive. So when i saw Kerri Maniscalco recommending this o...

    After some thinking about this book I decided to change my review. The first quarter of this book did a lot of building up which can be boring at times. This is all about a girl whose mom was hung for murder. So many more deaths happened in relationship to her mother but why? It was sh...

    Teri Bailey Black's YA debut novel, GIRL AT THE GRAVE, is a delightful blend of historical mystery and Gothic romance. Murder, intrigue, a decrepit mansion,a love triangle, scandals and secrets fill the pages of this page-turner! I will be looking forward to Ms. Black's next book. ...

    4.5 stars... really enjoyed this one and there are so many twists!! Girl at the Grave by Teri Bailey Black was one of my most anticipated reads for this summer and I?m so happy I had the opportunity to get my hands on a review copy. This book is the perfect mix of historical and g...

    ?The whole head is sick. And the whole heart is faint.? This book isn?t as exciting as I presumed. It?s a solid novel with a pleasant blend of murder and romance, but not much more. Although there is a love triangle, it?s executed well, and each character is fleshed out ...

    It's not often these days you pick-up a book and find it to exactly what you are expecting. Girl in the Grave was this for me. I wanted a easier to read (ie: YA, teen or romance) story that had some 'edge' (ie: horror, Gothic) to it and a strong female lead. I got everything I could ha...

    Girl at the Grave is an atmospheric YA mystery set in the late 1800's. Reminiscent of Wuthering Heights and The Scarlet Letter, it evokes gothic sensibilities, an underlying sense of unease, and the terrors of rural small-mindedness for women and those who were different. Valentine has...

    Thank you so much to the publisher for providing me an e-galley through netgalley! Holy crap. This book was so freaking good. Part romance, part cautionary tale. All mystery. One little thing spurred so much in this story. Just when I thought it all figured out I'd be thrown through...

    Where to start with thoughts on Girl at the Grave? It might seem a little macabre, but I definitely picked this book up because of the promised blend of murder and romance. When those two things are well combined in a historical fiction novel, that's my perfect storm. I hoped for a dar...

    I'm always a little wary when it comes to debut's because I have been burned in the past. I have a little section on my shelf of beautiful hardback debut's that were all meh but I refuse to get rid of because bitch they were expensive. So when i saw Kerri Maniscalco recommending this o...

    After some thinking about this book I decided to change my review. The first quarter of this book did a lot of building up which can be boring at times. This is all about a girl whose mom was hung for murder. So many more deaths happened in relationship to her mother but why? It was sh...
