characters The Sun Down Motel ✓ eBook, PDF or Kindle ePUB The secrets lurking in a rundown roadside motel ensnare a young woman just as they did her aunt thirty five years before in this new atmospheric suspense novel from the national bestselling and award winning auth. find this review others on my blog There is a video I came across on Twitter a couple months ago of a woman giving other women tips on how to protect themselves and stay safe if they have to venture outside at night complete with where to best hide a pepper spray how to wield your keys like you would a knife and how many clothes to layer on your body There was urgency and fear in the woman s voice and a haunted fatalistic uality in her eyes that struck such a fundamental chord with me The women in the replies were empathetic understanding grateful The men who by all appearances had never been acuainted with true fear in all their days were skeptical at best deriding at worst Isn t she exaggerating They scoffed It can t really be that bad they decidedBut this is the lesson of every woman s life that there are no safe places You will be defenseless You will be as soft sands before the waves of a man who decided you were to die20 year old Carly Kirk the protagonist of Simone St James horrifying but beguiling novel is well versed in the language of fear native to every womanCarly s aunt Viv Delaney vanished into thin air from the seedy upstate New York motel she worked the night shifts at and her disappearance remained deeply seared on Carly s mind a permanent mental hangnailThough all Carly has to remember her aunt by was a newspaper clipping from 1982 and the grief in her heart she sets out from her Illinois hometown to Fell NY searching on only the thinnest most unlikely thread of hope the need to find answers to her uestions burning through her as though she were a candlewick In Fell Carly tries to piece together an aunt who is gone from a few clues scattered across a small town where secrets collected inside like black soot Carly s uest gives her meek unwelcome fear time to fuse into something cold and when she blows the closet open the skeletons spill out like blood at her feetWhat follows is a twisty flashbackflashforward narrative that balances two central and interlinked mysteries shifting in ways that no decent reviewer should disclose Although they don t exist simultaneously Carly and Viv s stories run in eerie parallels This illuminates the terrible gulf of years between twenty and fifty but it also reminds us that this story has happened for generations is happening right now and will most certainly happen again New grievances seem to always have a way of following old fault linesThe Sun Down Motel is the kind of novel that begs to be read at one in the morning under the covers with a flashlight in your hand Sleep is a thing I couldn t remember while reading this book the face and smell and texture of it all forgotten The novel s breakneck pacing is backed up by a sensation of constant dread which creates a keep you guessing air that s simply magnetic I watched the way a fisherman watches a darkening cloud on the horizon as the pieces of a pattern drifted closer together until every part of the puzzle yielded its secrets The motel not only plays a character in The Sun Down Motel as many settings in good novels do but it acts as part of the plot itself The unsettling energy that buzzes throughout the motel is magnified by the rapid dissolving of the boundaries between the real and the supernatural and soon every shadow grows ripe with meaning every detail crying out for the reader s attentionBoth Carly and Delaney are engaging characters Brave and confident that their course would throw up no obstacles so large that they could not be plowed over with sheer force of momentum Carly and Delaney fly headlong into danger like a loosed hound seeking vengeance Their stifled awe in the face of encroaching strangeness speaks however profoundly to our own numbness in a world where real wonders and horrors crop up every day Still it s hard not to feel in the baser part of yourself a savage snarl of rage while reading this novel That sudden swoop of the stomach the all too familiar coursing anger at the men monsters who grew weary of desire and developed a taste for causing pain and the gratuitous unavenged deaths of so many young women I stepped out of this book feeling sick with that feeling poisoned turned inside out I still do to be honestIf I have to point out a flaw in this novel it would be the ending On the one hand The Sun Down Motel closes with a jarring reveal that fully justifies the obscuring of truth and arrangement of clues that leads up to it but on the other hand the conclusion feels lean and abrupt to the point of coming across rushed The predictability of it has a flattening effect too making singularly boring what should have been a defining moment and I felt somewhat cheated of a dramatic showdown that would resonate deeplyThat said don t let that discourage you from picking up this book Solid and smartly told The Sun Down Motel is uite the remarkable achievement ko fi blog twitter

The night it all ended Vivian was alone She felt like crying She felt like screaming She felt sickI don t want to go in there But I will Because I always doObviously flashy psychological thrillers are still trendy but have you ever picked up a mystery that is simply well written to the point where you can just bask in that book s uiet glory and subtle power That s precisely how I felt regarding The Sun Down Motel It s receiving copious amounts of hype and rightly so due to it s gorgeous cover art being splashed across social media it s feature as a January 2020 pick for Book of the Month and the many lists that it has been featured on prior to publication Did I mention it s a BOTM pick for January The tricky part is convincing those readers who typically steer clear of any mention of the supernatural to pick up this book and I truly believe some of you will love it regardless of this inclusion because the paranormal aspect plays a rather small role in the overarching storyIn my humble opinion the feature that makes The Sun Down Motel a stand out novel is the incredibly eerie atmosphere The upstate New York setting was a character of its own and the ability to fully immerse myself in this oppressive motel that was off the beaten path is what kept my mind constantly circling around the story even when I wasn t reading it The intentionally claustrophobic writing was key to keeping both the past and the present storylines married to one another and I ll be a monkey s uncle if it wasn t one of the most brilliant tactics I ve seen recently While this could be considered a slow burning mystery due to the heavy emphasis on the amateur detective work playing a large part of the narrative I couldn t turn the pages fast enough to find out what happened nextThere were two reasons why this book wasn t a 5 star read for me the repetitive nature of the past and present chapters and the underwhelming rushed climax of the book While I wholly appreciate and understand the need for establishing plot progression in both tenses many passages read almost word for word as the same conversations which slowed the pacing down I feel like maybe some fade to black moments or implied info dumps off page would have kept the accuracy in tact while saving the reader from experiencing the same dialogue twice and perhaps exchanging information reveals in an alternating style between tenses would have been helpful Once the ending came the last 50 pages felt so rushed as such a slow and steady build up and while I was pleased with the way all the stories tied up I could have used a bit extension in that portion Overall a fabulous read and one that makes me look forward to future books from the author Many thanks to the publisher for providing my review copy
