I didn’t find it restful: The Resting Place

#SecretsDontDie #NetGalley

In this, her second novel, Ms. Sten shows that she is not a one trick wonder. Her new novel is an immersive, atmospheric and somewhat creepy read that will keep readers turning the pages and looking over their shoulders.

This book is seriously scary so know that before diving in. The protagonist witnessed a murder but has a condition which leaves her unable to recognize faces. How will she be able to know how much danger she is in? How threatened will the killer feel? Along with this, there is a house that is every bit as evocative as Manderley.

Try this one if you are a brave reader. Just keep the lights on.

Many thanks to NetGalley and St. Martin’s Minotaur for this title. All opinions are my own.

I love to read, recommend books and open the world of reading to others. I tutor to ensure that the next generation of readers will know the joys of a good book because their reading skills have improved. I am an avid reader, especially of mysteries and fiction. I believe that two of the world's greatest inventions were the public library and eyeglasses!
