This was an interesting mystery/ghost story. Not as creepy and suspenseful as I like but still good. ⭐️⭐️⭐️

Andrew65 I loved this. 2w

A little contrived to move the plot along at times but an enjoyable read with a supernatural twist that was nicely done creep wise.

Balibee146 @FlowerFairy bummer 🙄😱 I've had some great editions from these sellers but also the occasional 'very good' condition book that looks filthy and like it was used to prop up furniture. Always worth complaining to the big sellers... They usually fix things 👍 2mo

I picked this up as the boarding school setting pulls me in and I‘m pleased it did not disappoint. I enjoyed it very much, a murder mystery entwines with a supernatural element which is quite spooky. Great sense of place, kept me turning the pages, and a satisfying conclusion.

This book is a big ol' suspenseful conglomeration of things that I love to read about. Hauntings, a boarding school, WWII, and dual timelines. Equal parts mysterious and mournful. What's not to love? This is the second book by this author I've read and I've loved them both equally! Adding her to my must read list.

Looking for a spooky thrill ride? I found this book full of shivers as I followed the dueling stories of a quartet of troubled girls in the fifties and a female journalist in 2014 as she investigates her sister's murder. All of this happens with the continual presence of the ghost of Mary Hand. Don't let her in.

I loved how this book brought in the paranormal without just being a haunted house book. It was weaved through the story enough to make you wonder but was also a murder mystery. The two timelines were easy to follow and came together nicely in the end. Loved the story! Perfect October read. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

This is a paranormal mystery about three girls and a boarding house. I loved the unexpected ending, but not so sure why the sex scenes had to be so detailed like it was important to the plot.

This suspense novel alternates between a haunted 👻 boarding school for troubled girls in the 1950‘s and a young journalist in 2014 still struggling over her sister‘s murder.

I enjoyed this one, especially the 1950‘s storyline. #scarathlon 2pt theme 👻 read #TeamStoker #scaryscavengerhunt (#200 pgs)

Also, I was off yesterday + today from school for Rosh Hashanah so a happy one to anyone who celebrates.

I'm on an elimination diet (no gluten, dairy, or added sugar) so this was a "what can I throw together because my GF pancake mix has dairy I need to eat now" kind of dinner sans recipe. Conclusion: like rice pasta, that was actually a lot of spinach, yay I finally used the xanthan gum i bought ages ago!

Been thinkin bout how a title frames your opinion of a book. Classic ex: “Girl with Dragon Tattoo“ puts the focus on an edgy female lead, but the original Swedish title, literally translated to “Men Who Hate Women“, makes you pay attn to the sexual politics at play.

And this book? Are these really “Broken Girls“, or just girls who were dealt a sh!ty hand, playing it the best they can? I underestimated them from the start, just like everyone else.

I think this book is excellent for the right type of reader. If you want a mystery with a ghost story element and something that isn't very scary, it is the perfect book for you! I generally prefer my mystery books to have a bit more of a scare factor, and overall I thought the mystery had too many components to it, but I can absolutely see why the right type of reader would fall in love with this book.

Another great read from Ms. St. James!! This author never disappoints. The multiple mysteries made the wheels in my head turning in this one. This was a fast read for me but only because the storyline was so well-written and I couldn't wait to know what happens at the end.

This book was a mixture of supernatural and mystery. I was a little concerned at first that the supernatural aspect would turn me off to the novel, but I felt it added to the mystery. This book wasn‘t what I was expecting, however it was a very good read! I found it a little slow going at first but it quickly picked up.

This was part ghost story, part mystery. I picked it up for the ghost story part of it and found myself enjoying the mystery aspect of it too. I thought it was good. Right up until the very very unrealistic ending (keep in mind, there was an actual ghost in this and yet the most unrealistic part of it was the villain). I was waiting for the villain to start twirling his mustache as he monologued. #ghost #coolcover #mystery
