The Sun Down Motel
The Sun Down Motel | Simone St. James
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 author of The Broken Girls. Upstate NY, 1982. Every small town like Fell, New York, has a place like the Sun Down Motel. Some customers are from out of town, passing through on their way to someplace better. Some are locals, trying to hide their secrets. Viv Delaney works as the night clerk to pay for her move to New York City. But something isn't right at the Sun Down, and before long she's determined to uncover all of the secrets hidden there. Upstate NY, 2017. Carly Kirk has always been fascinated by her aunt Viv who disappeared from the Sun Down before Carly was born. Using a small inheritance from when her mom dies, Carly leaves college to go to Fell to figure out what happened to her aunt thirty-five years ago. Soon, Carly is mirroring her aunt's life, working as the night clerk at the motel, which hasn't changed since 1982. The guest book is still handwritten, the rooms still have actual keys, and a haunting presence still lingers. Carly discovers that Viv had been trying to unravel mysteries of her own--including a possible serial killer working in Fell. If Carly can find the answers Viv was searching for, she might be able to solve the mystery that has haunted her family for years.

Fantastic - ghost story/murder mystery/thriller - and it was hard to put down - told in two time lines - I actually felt the creepiness it was written so well.
My only negative comment - the book cover - a million times (ok not that many) the sign is described as flashing Vacancy Cable TV - put Cable TV on the book cover 😆

Finished for #20in4 @Andrew65

#TheSunDownMotel #SimoneStJames
#BookSpinBingo #NovelNovember

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 1982 Carly's aunt Viv Delaney moved to New York City and got a job as the night clerk at the Sun Down Motel in Fell, New York. It's 2017 & Carly wants to find out what happened to Aunt Viv as she mysteriously disappeared from the Sun Down before Carly was born.

EadieB Carly moves to Fell, New York and visits the motel. She soon finds herself involved with the same mysteries that claimed her aunt. This is a creepy ghost story and mystery full of secrets. It is a dark and twisted story with an ending I didn't see coming. The story switches back and forth between 1982 and 2017 with two points of view. 2w
EadieB Simone St. James is an excellent writer and kept the pages turning. If you enjoy the supernatural, then you will enjoy this book. 2w

This is probably one of the best books I‘ve read in awhile. I loved it. Super creepy and perfect for the Halloween 🎃 season. I heard they are potentially going to turn it into a tv series which if so I cant freaking wait. It‘s full of mystery, murder, ghosts…what more could you want?!

Creepy mystery / paranormal story told in dual timelines set in the small town of Fell in upstate NY - site of a disproportionate number of murder victims. In 1982, Viv Delaney suddenly disappeared from the night shift at the creepy haunted Sun Down Motel. 35 years later, her niece Carly Kirk comes to town to try to puzzle out what happened.
Told in dual timelines - part mystery, part horror - how it could be any of us. I really liked this.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ I first listened to this part thriller, part horror on audio last year. It‘s so atmospheric and compulsive. I just #reread it for book club, but this time in print. Loved it more second time around. The parallel storylines are just right and the ghosts are oddly believable. Added that 5th star!

LeeRHarry I just finished this one - well paced, atmospheric and not too scary - which I was happy about 😊 1mo

The Sun Down Motel was a mix of creepy and murder mystery set between two time periods between the two main characters, Vivian in 1982 and her niece Carly in 2017
I enjoyed the two different perspectives, it was a little slow at times but still kept me interested and enjoyable

This was perfect for the Halloween season. It is a mystery as well as a ghost story. I thought the setting was used really well, and I liked how she built up the characters in both timelines. I listened to the audiobook and some of it was legitimately scary to me. I‘m probably never going to go to the ice/vending area of a motel alone without worrying about some ghosts.

I listened to the audio. There were two different voices for each of the main characters. It didn‘t hold my attention 100%, but I was interested enough that plenty of times, I “rewound” to hear what I‘d missed. There was some good atmosphere, with some creepy happenings

Drnkpnkprincess @CaramelLunacy I usually despise audiobooks because I‘m easily distracted - but this one was great! Two voice actors, alternating chapters/time frames… it was like someone is telling you a ghost story while your by a fire and each pause or chapter break makes you want to keep going. I listened to it at 1.2X near the end just so they‘d speak faster and I‘d get my answers. (edited) 2mo

The story centers around Carly a young woman who is determined to find out what happened to her Aunt Viv who disappeared 35 years earlier. The last known place, The Sun Down Motel, which proves to have secrets of its own. A chilling tale with a shocking ending.

Excellent road trip audiobook. A good mystery surrounding a haunted roadside motel was just the thing to listen to right before stopping to sleep at a (hopefully) not haunted roadside motel! Good characters and well structured with solid pacing that kept things tied together and moving forward. Recommended.

Don't know how many St. James' I've read now but I really enjoy them! Suspense, mystery, little bit of horror real and supernatural- right up my alley!
Another one that jumps time and perspectives but easy to follow, especially with these narrators who I think did a great job!
I loved all the characters and the not at all subtle discussion of sexism.

Did anyone else feel like the ghost and the 30 year old missing person case was a bit too much? If this had been just a ghost story or just a mystery I think the plot details and character development would‘ve been better. I liked the idea but couldn‘t get invested in the characters they are very flat.

I was a bit caught off guard early on when doors started opening and closing on their own. I didn‘t realize this was that kind of creepy. I‘ll admit that reading this in a quiet house at night out me on edge... then the dog dropped her bone and I jumped a foot. Serial killer, angry spirits, missing woman... made for a good read.

The story unfolds with two different timelines, one with Viv in 1982, who goes missing and the other with her niece, Carly in 2017, who is determined to find out what happened to her.
A thrilling, spooky page turner that deserves all the acclaim it has garnered.
A serial killer, ghosts and a spooky roadside motel...what more do you need?

Awake again at 3am: RLS. It‘s a real thing and when it acts up sleep just doesn‘t happen. So... I‘m spending a little time appreciating when authors drop literary allusions. I too could kill an hour easily by wondering the libraries stacks. I especially enjoy the children‘s section when parents bring their toddlers and they discover new books. Their amazement and excitement is palpable.
