Publisher's Summary

The latest novel from New York Times best-selling author Jennifer McMahon is an atmospheric, gripping, and suspenseful tale that probes the bond between sisters and the peril of keeping secrets.
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 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.

Don't want to spoil anything, BUT ...

Without giving too much away, I wish I had known this book was going to be more fantasy or sci-fi than mystery.
Narration by Cassandra Smith was very good.
(much better than her recent reading of ''Pretty Baby")

Poor imitation of a worthwhile thriller

I should have listened to the negative reviews, but the premise intrigued me so much that i cashed in a credit anyway. Not a credit well spent.

The best thing this story has going for it is the premise. The execution is just ... boring.

It's like a lesser M. Night Shyamalan film: seems promising, and then lets you down with a weak, somewhat absurd plot resolution.

The end made me feel like I was in a completely different book: a preposterous parody of itself.

The book did keep me mildly entertained for several hours. But only mildly.
