Review & Giveaway: The Devlin Diary by Christi Phillips


Claire is a college history teacher. When a fellow teacher turns up dead, she can't help but wonder if this death is connected to a brutal killer from the 1600's. At that time, there was a murderer who would leave strange markings on victims. The answer to this mystery lies in Hannah Devlin's diary. Will they be able to uncover the truth or will these killings continue?

This is one of those books that as soon as you start reading it, you know instantly that it is going to be added to your favorites list. Everything about this book is intriguing.

  55. This is NOT an entry, as I've already read and reviewed this book myself. I agree with you; I was totally caught up in the historical storyline, not as much in the present-day one, although I did love how the present-day storyline started coming together at the end! I agree with you; this is a good read!
