Hair neatly braided, hands serenely clasped, eyes closed, the young woman appeared to be sound asleep. But the peaceful tableau was a madman’s handiwork. Beneath the covers, her white nightgown was spattered with blood. At daybreak, a horrified family would discover her corpse tucked into their guest room. The cunning killer would strike again . . . and again . . . before vanishing into the mists of time.
A century ago, the Sleeping Beauty Murders terrified picturesque Mundy’s Landing. The victims, like the killer, were never identified. Now, on the hundredth anniversary, the Historical Society’s annual “Mundypalooza” offers a hefty reward for solving the notorious case.
Annabelle Bingham, living in one of the three Murder Houses, can’t escape the feeling that her family is being watched—and not just by news crews and amateur sleuths. She’s right. Having unearthed the startling truth behind the horrific crimes, a copycat killer is about to reenact them—beneath the mansard roof of Annabelle’s dream home . . .
My Thoughts and Opinion:
Warning…once started, be prepared to read this book through the night! And maybe read it when you aren’t alone!! It’s a chilling psychological, white knuckle read!
It is the 2nd in the Mundy’s Landing series but easily read as a stand alone. It’s a mystery wrapped in a mystery from a century past.
Ms. Staub tells a story where visuals will have you reeling and feeling that you are a bystander looking on. Characters of Mundy’s Landing are quirky, conventional, eccentric, some unstable and hiding many secrets. Many!!!
I tried reading faster so that I could turn the page to see what was next. A true thriller!
If you enjoy a whodunit, then this book is for you! But you may be surprised, as I was, finding out that there were 2 whodunits and who they were. Right up to the last page! Spine tingling! I do recommend that you read it soon because Ms. Staub gives a sneak peek into the 3rd book of this series. I, for one, can’t wait!
This blog was founded on the premise to write honest reviews, to the best of my ability, no matter who from, where from and/or how the book was obtained, and will continue to do so, even if it is through PICT or PBP.
I received a copy of this book, at no charge to me, in exchange for my honest review.
