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.

This has been on my TBR list since it came out and I finally got around to it! Honestly two years out is pretty good for me. . .
A girl decides to investigate her aunt's disappearance from 35 years earlier. It all revolves around Sun Down Motel and the strange things that happen there.
Great story and writing. This is one that actually is as good as everyone says!

Part true crime sleuth, part paranormal, The Sun Down Motel should be right up my alley. Unfortunately, it didn‘t grab me like the other thrillers/mysteries I‘ve read lately. This has a solid premise and the motel definitely spooked me, but it wasn‘t as “un-putdownable” as I wanted it to be. I found it to be fairly predictable and the ending a little too neat. Nothing really “wrong” with the book - I think my expectations were just too high. 3.5⭐️

I just went in a wild ride with twists and turns galore. Carly is a twenty year old woman who goes searching the past for answers about her missing aunt. Some people aren‘t whom they seem to be and yo I ever know who‘s going to show up in the small town of Fell. Get lost as you follow along with Carly‘s journey. I promise you won‘t be able to put this one down.

Another good one by St. James. I love her mix of paranormal and mystery along with the split timeline POVs. While The who done it mystery only lasts to about halfway through the book, I didn‘t mind.

The story is more of an amateur sleuth crime procedural. Both MCs are in the process of proving her theory of what happened in November 1982. #Booked2022 SET IN AN INN, LODGE, OR HOTEL

This is the first book I‘ve read by Simone St James, certainly will not be the last. The two timelines weave together incredibly well, part “true crime” armchair detective investigation, part ghost story.

In 1982 Viv searches for a killer, in 2017 her niece Carly investigates what happened to Viv. Set in a town with far too many other tragedies. And a haunted motel. The supernatural element is done really well, just enough to enhance the story.

4.5/5.

I absolutely loved this book. I didn‘t know what to expect when I went into it, which is how I enjoy reading my books, but I was pleasantly surprised. I‘ve got her next book, The Book of Cold Cases, on hold at my library so it may be too soon to tell, but I suspect I‘ve found a new favorite author.

At first I thought I wasn‘t going to like this book, but the more I listened the more invested I became. Dual narration, two timelines; Viv a night clerk in 1982, Carly her niece in 2017. Viv disappears one night never to be seen or heard from again, Carly reruns to her place of employment to search for missing clues. The right blend of believability & creepiness.

What do you do on a snow day?? You cuddle up with your best fur babies with a warm blanket, read a book and watch the birds.

I really love a good mystery on snowy/rainy days. Reading another one of St. James' novels has proven to be a worthwhile pick. There's all the twists and turns.

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.

#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. 10mo

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!

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

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‘m so glad I‘m finally reading this. I‘m only about 1/3 the way in, but so far I‘m liking this better than The Broken Girls, and so far, it‘s a perfectly creepy book timed perfectly with what I‘m insisting is the beginning of fall…. 😬😎🎃🍁🍂🖤💚🧡💜

(90+ degree temperatures notwithstanding)

Clwojick All the fall feels! 13mo

TheDaysGoBy I enjoyed that one a lot! Did spook me a bit with some of its creepiness but I‘m also a wuss 😂 Hope you enjoy the rest! 13mo
Avanders @StillLookingForCarmenSanDiego 🍁🍂🧡💚☺️ @TheDaysGoBy lol I thought it was atmospherically creepy - just right! 😁 13mo
