Over the years, terrible things keep happening to Anna Ray on February 17. First, there was the childhood trauma she’s never been able to speak about. Then, to her horror, her husband killed himself on that date.
A year later and a thousand miles away, Anna tries to find solace in the fresh start of a new job in a new place. She takes comfort in her outspoken cousin Jeannie, the confidant and best friend who’s there whenever she needs help. On the day of the dreaded anniversary, Anna and Jeannie hit the town, planning to ease the pain with an alcohol-induced stupor and then sleep.…
When Anna awakes the next morning, she thinks she can put one more February 17 behind her, but fate is about to intervene in the form of two gruesome murders with eerie similarities to her violent past. This time, however, she won’t be an abandoned daughter or a grieving widow. This time, she’ll be a suspect.
My thoughts about Baggage ~~
This is an amazing story that grabbed me from the synopsis. I just had to find out what terrible thing had happened to Anna on February 17th, all those years ago. Things of which Anna would never speak. She kept that secret all through the years and every year dreaded waking up on February 17th. What traumatic event was in her past? And how can people be so horrible?
'February 17, the day of dead men.'
Baggage is a fast paced, suspenseful story that kept me on the edge of my seat and kept me turning the pages. There were twists and turns I was not expecting. I loved it!!
'I guess when you hear my backstory, bloody thoughts come to mind.'
What a great story and now I'm off to check out other books by this author!
