As children, RaeAnne and her sidekick King were held captive after they discovered the body of a boy their age in a crate of apples in their small town’s peculiar orchard. Now RaeAnne is grown and the mother of a troubled young daughter. After her mother is killed in an accident, she travels home to her father with her daughter. But RaeAnne finds that she is not welcomed by everyone, and frightening incidents start to happen involving her and her family. As RaeAnne unravels the mysteries of her childhood, including what happened to her older brother, who vanished on the same night RaeAnne and King found terror in the orchard, she reunites with King. The boy she knew has grown up to be very handsome and guarded. But can the two ever be more than old friends who share a terrifying secret?

This Beautiful World is an interesting, different novel. With strong characters and a dynamic plot, and a suspenseful mystery, it’s definitely engaging and entertaining.

I iked RaeAnne ‘s personality, and her relationship with her daughter was great. Kids often play smaller roles in books that mostly concern the adults, but I didn’t get that feeling here. She focuses on her daughter often, and it’s obvious she’s the most important person in RaeAnne’s life.

King was great too. He’s the perfect sidekick – always standing next to RaeAnne and supporting her. I liked traveling back to the past and reliving their childhood memories, especially the ones regarding that they went they found the body of a boy in a crate of apples. King and RaeAnne obviously have a deep connection, and they work well together. He’s a genuine, nice, compassionate, considerate guy, and his personality fits well with RaeAnne’s.

The mystery was great. I kept on guessing what happened, who was involved, and how it would all work out. Some twists were completely unexpected, and I enjoyed reading this book from start to end. Recommended to all fans of mysteries and romance.
