I received this book in exchange for an honest review. Thanks to NetGalley and Createspace for the arc of The Rosegiver by Sandy Benitez. This book started out promising and I was drawn into the story until about halfway. Then I felt like the world building, character development and backstory stopped. Rachel, seventeen years old, is traveling on a train to help her Aunt run her inn at Thistlegrove. While on the train, she hears horrible scratching outside of her compartment and the next morning she finds a long, raggedy, broken fingernail. She travels in a carriage to the Thistlegrove inn with a fellow train traveler. To this point, the story kept my interest. Then it’s revealed that Rachel is a rosegiver and she discovers her heritage. After that the story is too drawn out, so I give it 3 stars.
