What an enjoyable, creepy read. The story alternates between 1982 and 2017. After her mother’s death, Carly travels to Fell, New York to unravel the mystery of her aunt who disappeared before she was born. She gets the same night-shift job her Aunt Viv had when she disappeared from the Sun Down Motel, a place that’s stuck in a time warp. (The book’s cover perfectly sets the stage.) We follow Carly as she works to discover what happened to Viv. And we also learn how Viv, before her disappearance, was trying to solve several recent murders. The Sun Down Motel is much more than a good murder mystery as the motel has some permanent guests from the afterlife lurking around often stirring things up in a spine tingling way. I normally don’t seek books with paranormal themes but when a real good one comes along, oh what fun it is. You will not want to put this eerie thriller down. Many thanks to Edelweiss, Berkley Publishing Group and Ms. St. James for the advance copy which will be published on February 18, 2020.
Rated 4.25 out of 5 stars.
Mystery / Thriller.
