The Sun Down Motel by Simone St. James
336 pages
Published February 18th 2020 by Berkley

Something hasn’t been right at the roadside Sun Down Motel for a very long time, and Carly Kirk is about to find out why in this chilling new novel from the USA Today bestselling and award-winning author of The Broken Girls.

Upstate New York, 1982. Viv Delaney wants to move to New York City, and to help pay for it she takes a job as the night clerk at the Sun Down Motel in Fell, New York. But something isnʼt right at the motel, something haunting and scary.

Upstate New York, 2017. Carly Kirk has never been able to let go of the story of her aunt Viv, who mysteriously disappeared from the Sun Down before she was born. She decides to move to Fell and visit the motel, where she quickly learns that nothing has changed since 1982. And she soon finds herself ensnared in the same mysteries that claimed her aunt.

My thoughts about The Sun Down Motel ~~

(I love to note the first lines of the books I'm reading. First lines can really grab a reader's attention and I love seeing where the author takes the reader after their first line.)

First line—"The night it all ended, Vivian was alone."

My first thought when I finished binge-reading this book was "Wow! Just wow!!" The author pulled me into this amazing story and I couldn't stop. I devoured it!

This book has it all—murder, an age-old mystery, a creepy ghost story, and a little bit of romance Or maybe just an attraction, who knows what will happen when there are ghosts involved.

Simone's stories are just getting better and better with each book she writes. I'm super excited to see what she has coming next. But in the mean time, I can't recommend this book enough! It was a thrilling page-turner that I can't get out of my mind. Pick it up! You will not be disappointed, I promise.

I received an ARC of The Sun Down Motel from the publisher via NetGalley and this is my honest opinion of the book.
