The Sheriff of Salem by Aaron Lebold
The Vorbex family doesn’t know much about Salem, and the name Giles Corey doesn’t ring any bells. At least not until they decide to start a new life there. With Walter Paradise, the local conspiracy theorist, doing everything he can to get the sheriff’s attention, and a crime family doing everything they can to sabotage his career, he struggles to understand why his life seems to be falling apart.
Hard To Put Down Supernatural Thriller!!
Being the historical buff I am and finding out that the setting of this book is in Salem, Massachusetts had me definitely wanting to check this one out. I’m super glad I did! Present day.. Seamus is an officer who’s stuck in a dead end job at his current precinct due to an unfortunate accident years ago. He’s not happy and it’s starts to spill over to family life. His wife sees a job posting for a Sheriff position in Salem and figures what the heck, a change might be good! What they don’t know is that every Sheriff in that particular county has been affected by a curse. The curse stems back to the days of the witch trials and was set upon that specific office by an infamous witch from that time. Crime is high, the mayor wants the situation under control. Seamus is confident in his ability to get the job done. This thriller is full of lore, superstition and lots of action! I literally read this in two days because I needed to get some sleep to function the next day. I could have stayed up all night reading it because I didn’t want to put it down. I loved the character development of Seamus and his family. It made me feel like I knew them personally. The use of real places in Salem as settings for some scenes was a really nice touch. Can Seamus get the job done no matter the paranormal forces at work in town? Go read this book and find out! This author is a new author for me and I hope to read more from Aaron Lebold soon!!
