The BookViral Review:

Emotionally complex Secrets of Edenfield is a story that keeps us on edge from beginning to end whilst demonstrating what an author can accomplish with a compact cast of characters and a powerful theme.

Loni Hoots is an author who has a feel for the shock rhythms of a story whilst chipping away at reality piece by piece as fear and tension mount. She wants to evoke a sense of empathy and shock for the victims of Edenfield and she certainly achieves it.

On this level Secrets of Edenfield is original with plenty of vivid and gut-wrenching moments but it also works as a portrait of individuals living in a mental asylum. Relentlessly pulling us in as their stories are told without drifting into trite genre clichés.

Here Secrets of Edenfield manages to be both engaging and poignant with Hoots getting the juxtaposition between the big-picture “horrors of murder and abuse” stuff and the personal, small-scale stuff just right. Her characters are particularly vibrant and it is this that makes the tragedy of unfolding events so powerful.

Hoots isn’t out to entertain with salacious genre thrills but something deeper and more profound. There are no answers here, and no saccharine ending but readers will find themselves looking deeper into Secrets of Edenfield whilst reflecting on the heartbreak of events that sadly happen over and over again in real life and it’s a credit to Hoots that through her writing she has brought them once again into focus.

A read that will linger in your memory long after the last page is turned Secrets of Edenfield is strongly recommended.

It is a novel with the courage to be about complex, sweeping emotions with Waldrip effectively using the alternate perspectives of disparate timelines to create a marvellously pacy, suspenseful read which is deceptively easy to become immersed in.
