“Wildwood Creek” is a Page-Turner!

41i00wuwjVL__SS300_Allie Kirkland wants to follow in her late father’s footsteps in the film industry…behind the camera, not in front of it. When a production company begins casting for a reality series based on pioneer life, Allie tries for a backstage role while her roommate vies for an on-screen role. When their recreated town is revealed to be the site of a mysterious disappearance in the 1860’s, Allie is intrigued. Will her desire to find out what really happened lead her right into danger herself?
Lisa Wingate paints a full and rich story of two young women in different centuries, both trying to move past loss in their lives. Her characters are well-written and entertaining and the mystery is engaging and races the reader to an unexpected conclusion. Wingate does a nice job of changing time periods as well as detailing the difficulties that a group of modern pioneers experience in trying to live an 1860’s lifestyle. Overall, I give “Wildwood Creek” a 5 for engaging plot, good characters, and a nice, fresh mystery. “Wildwood Creek” is a good choice for readers in middle grades and up. There is some violence but it is in context of the story.
