Marigold is running from ghosts. The phantoms of her old life keep haunting her, but a move with her newly blended family from their small California beach town to the embattled Midwestern city of Cedarville might be the fresh start she needs. Her mom has accepted a new job with the Sterling Foundation that comes with a free house, one that Mari now has to share with her bratty ten-year-old stepsister, Piper.
The renovated picture-perfect home on Maple Street, sitting between dilapidated houses, surrounded by wary neighbors has its . . . secrets. That’s only half the problem: household items vanish, doors open on their own, lights turn off, shadows walk past rooms, voices can be heard in the walls, and there’s a foul smell seeping through the vents only Mari seems to notice. Worse: Piper keeps talking about a friend who wants Mari gone.
But “running from ghosts” is just a metaphor, right?
As the house closes in, Mari learns that the danger isn’t limited to Maple Street. Cedarville has its secrets, too. And secrets always find their way through the cracks.
White Smoke was such a good spooky read. I really did enjoyed the book and the twists. The centers around a family moving in to renovate a home. Somethings are better left alone. Also I enjoy the cover of the book, it fits the theme perfectly.
I liked Mari in the book. She have some mental issues herself, but she knows something is wrong with the house. First things started to disappeared, strange smell at night, and things go bump in the night. Mari might need to find the answers soon, before it’s to late.
This book has some crazy jump scares in it. It makes you want to sleep with the lights on. Hope they do make this book into a movie. Tiffany is known for her crazy ending twists in her books. Also the book was very hard to put down at times. I’m looking forward to more reads by this aurthor.
