    Girl at the Grave is different than what I had hoped for after reading the synopsis, but still a pretty good read. I appreciate the fact that the characters are well written, as is the history of the town and Valentine?s mom. The mystery is really what I loved about this book; I just...

    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...

    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...

    Actual Rating: 3.5 Stars! Same Review Also Posted On My Blog: Dreamy Addictions Girl At The Girl is a stand-alone YA debut novel by Teri Bailey Black. Well, this book has a great potential but sadly it falls short of perfection. To be honest, I enjoyed the story-line, but it was di...

    Girl at the Grave started off strong with suspense, mystery, and action, and then fell flat with little happening until well after the 50% mark. The middle was filled with Valentine getting to know her love interest Rowan as four months passed. Their time together was a plus since the ...

    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...

    4/5 stars I found myself to really enjoy this book, despite not being the biggest fan of historical fiction. Despite that, I was actually glued to the book and couldn't stop reading. There was just so much mysery involving all the characters, where you think you understand them, but...

    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...

    4/5 stars I found myself to really enjoy this book, despite not being the biggest fan of historical fiction. Despite that, I was actually glued to the book and couldn't stop reading. There was just so much mysery involving all the characters, where you think you understand them, but...

    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...

    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. ...

    Girl at the Grave is a decent enough historical mystery that spends too much time on its romantic subplot. When I first started it, I did not even know that it was historical fiction (there is no such indication in the blurb) and the setting was also a little confusing. Small town in 1...

    Girl at the Grave started off strong with suspense, mystery, and action, and then fell flat with little happening until well after the 50% mark. The middle was filled with Valentine getting to know her love interest Rowan as four months passed. Their time together was a plus since the ...

    I wasn?t sure about the premise of this book, it sounded interesting so I decided to read it. I?m SO glad I did because I absolutely loved it!!! Our main character, Valentine is a young woman who is easy to feel like she is your friend. Learning about her difficult life you feel fo...

    Colour me disappointed. I just did not get excited about this book. It was good, don't get me wrong, but not what I wanted to read. With a title like that, I for some reason was expecting a story involving ghosts. No ghosts, but murder! Cool! Awesome! A Victorian era YA thriller! ...
