“Once the thriving attraction of rural Vermont, the Tower Motel now stands in disrepair, alive only in the memories of Amy, Piper, and Piper’s kid sister, Margot. The three played there as girls until the day that their games uncovered something dark and twisted in the motel’s past, something that ruined their friendship forever.
Now adult, Piper and Margot have tried to forget what they found that fateful summer, but their lives are upended when Piper receives a panicked midnight call from Margot, with news of a horrific crime for which Amy stands accused. Suddenly, Margot and Piper are forced to relive the time that they found the suitcase that once belonged to Silvie Slater, the aunt that Amy claimed had run away to Hollywood to live out her dream of becoming Hitchcock’s next blonde bombshell leading lady. As Margot and Piper investigate, a cleverly woven plot unfolds—revealing the story of Sylvie and Rose, two other sisters who lived at the motel during its 1950s heyday. Each believed the other to be something truly monstrous, but only one carries the secret that would haunt the generations to come.”
Aaaa I had so much fun with this book. I started it at 8 PM thinking I would read some of it before bed, and of course I ended up staying up late to finish it.
It is a great read! I love when books suck you in like that.
Love this feature! And I bought this book the day it came out, super excited to read it…and wouldn’t ya know I have yet to read it. Story of my life. Sounds like a perfect book for my October suspenseful/spooky reading list.
That sounds about right. Goodness knows I ALWAYS read books as soon as I get them. (I can’t even type that with a straight face.)
I already have it on my Kindle. I’ve loved the Jennifer McMahon books that I’ve read. They are so different. Look forward to this one.
And by the way, you have What We Left Behind as the title to the book in the post title. Just sayin’….I’m also the person who tucks the tag into another woman’s shirt when I see it. LOL
Ha! I fixed it. Thanks for letting me know!
They are all excellent. She really is a tremendous writer.
