The Sun Down Motel

~ I received no compensation and opinions are 100% my own or my family. ~

Synopsis:  Welcome to Fell, NY. It’s no usual place.

Fell is an out-of-time small town in upstate NY where girls grow up being warned by their mothers to be careful or they will end up like Cathy Caldwell, the girl who was murdered and found under an overpass, or Victoria Lee who was killed and dumped on a jogging trail on the edge of town. There are a lot of dead girls in Fell.

One particular unsolved missing person’s case is the reason behind Carly Kirk’s visit to town. Carly has always been fascinated by her aunt Viv who disappeared while working at the Sun Down Motel before Carly was born. Using a small inheritance from her deceased mother, Carly leaves college to go to Fell and figure out what happened to her aunt thirty-five years ago. 

As Carly uncovers more about the mysterious happenings at the motel and Fell’s secrets, she discovers that Viv had been trying to unravel mysteries of her own—including a possible serial killer working in Fell targeting women. If Carly can find the answers Viv was searching for, she might be able to solve the mystery that has haunted her family for years. But as Carly digs deeper, she puts herself in front of the same dangers that faced her aunt all those years ago.

One (or more) Sentence Summary: I read this book at night and I was too afraid to go to asleep! Really a great suspenseful book that had me hooked from day one.  Totally creepy and totally a must read! How Simon wove two stories together is amazing.  Loved it!

Would I Read Other Books by the Author: Yes!  I l really enjoy her books.  Check out my review on her The Broken Girls book.

Simone St. James is the USA Today bestselling and award-winning author of The Broken GirlsLost Among the Living, and The Haunting of Maddy Clare. She wrote her first ghost story, about a haunted library, when she was in high school, and spent twenty years behind the scenes in the television business before leaving to write full-time.
