synopsis

Cover lo res Grave TenderA chilling psychological suspense novel, The Grave Tender explores the dark boundaries people cross to save loved ones, and the limits of family bonds tested by the deepest of betrayals.

Endless questions from a shadow-filled East Texas childhood haunt Hadley Dixon. People said her mother, Winnie, was never quite right, but with one single, irreparable act, life as Hadley knew it was shattered. The aftershocks of that moonlit night left her reeling, but the secrets and lies had started long before.

When a widowed and pregnant Hadley returns years later, it’s not the safe harbor she expects. The mysteries surrounding a local boy’s disappearance remain, and the townspeople still whisper about Hadley’s strange and reclusive Uncle Eli—whispers about a monster in their midst.

But Hadley’s father and grandmother, the cornerstones of everything safe in her world, avoid her questions. If Hadley stays here, will she be giving her children the family they need or putting their lives in danger?

The hunt for answers takes a determined Hadley deep into the pine forests, in search of sunlight that will break through the canopy of lies long enough to reveal the truth.

“The Grave Tender will grasp you in its hooks from the beginning as you try to figure out the truth behind each character, because no one is truly what they seem … Addicting, easy to read, and hard to put down.”Shelbi LeMeilleur, Insite Magazine

The Grave Tender – A Review

What an emotional powerhouse of a story! Even after my reading is finished of this book, it will be a long time before I ever forget it.

Eliza Maxwell crafted a story that cannot be long forgotten. The Grave Tender is a book that must be read. Even delving into a partial glimpse of this story would give readers way too much information on how the story leads the main character Hadley Dixon down dark paths. Discovering who the real monster is in her family is downright scandalous and breathtaking.

Yes – it’s my shortest review of any book I’ve read, but what else can I say about The Grave Tender? It’s an emotional powerhouse of a story that will leave readers reeling from the beginning to the end. Maxwell wrote a book that calls for readers to read it – not read reviews about the book.
