A woman investigating her brother’s apparent suicide finds herself falling for her prime suspect—his darkly mysterious girlfriend—in this edgy Southern gothic thriller.
“Get it out of me.”
This is the last message Holly receives from her brother, Dane. But what does it mean? Savannah can be a spooky place. Kind of Gothic in areas. But who saw this crazy stuff happening there?
Dane’s apparent suicide has rocked their family. All of them suffering with the horror of it all. They all seemed shell shocked at the funeral, where Dane’s supposed girlfriend speaks and Holly has an awful feeling that she had something to do with Dane’s death.
Holly is going to find out or die trying. Literally.
Maura on the surface seems to be a wealthy woman with some weird ideas about plants and life.She is also very charismatic. She apparantly talked Dane into some game that also ended his life. But Holly will need proof of that.
What should she do? Stalking Maura seemed the best way. But stalking her turns into an obsession with her. An attraction she doesn’t want. And in the end it may be the last thing she does.
I am not sure what I thought this was going to be about, but it wasn’t this. My own opinion is that Horror writers are successful because the horror they write has a grain of,” Hey this could happen!” and that is why it is scary. This was not the least bit believable.
