Book Review of “The Night Sister” by Jennifer Mcmahon

nightsister

The Tower Motel was once a thriving attraction of rural Vermont. Today it lies in disrepair, alive only in the memories of the three women—Amy, Piper, and Piper’s kid sister, Margot—who played there as children. They loved exploring the abandoned rooms … until the day their innocent games uncovered something dark and twisted that ruined their friendship forever.

Now, Amy stands accused of committing a horrific crime, and the only hint to her motives is a hasty message that forces Piper and Margot to revisit the motel’s past, and the fate of two sisters who lived there in its heyday.  Sylvie Slater had dreams of running off to Hollywood and becoming Alfred Hitchcock’s leading lady, while her little sister, Rose, was content with their simple life. Each believed the other to be something truly monstrous, but only one knows the secret that will haunt the generations to come. (From Amazon) I rate this book a 4 out of 5 stars. 

This is another book I have seen a lot on Instagram, and a few people who I personally know had recommended this book. So when my husband gave me a gift card for my birthday. This was a must buy.

It was a very good book. I did like the alternating years, and the alternating people. It gave you a sense of the story from several different view points.  I went into this book, thinking it was going to be a certain way, and that it wouldn’t stray far from other types of book on the market. I will say, I was pleasantly surprised. And I thought this book was done perfectly. I actually have add all of Jennifer McMahon’s books onto my Amazon wish list. I really enjoyed her writing style.

I hope that if you read this book, you will enjoy it as well.

When death comes knocking at your door,

you’ll think you’ve seen his face before.

When he comes creeping up your stairs,

you’ll know him from your dark nightmares.

If you hold up a mirror, you shall see

that he is you and you are he.
