The Night Sister (Paperback)
Now out in paperback:
"As in her National Bestseller Winter People (2014), McMahon has seamlessly blended the genres of mystery and thriller with haunting supernatural forces. This novel uses some of the same elements that made its predecessor such a captivating read while conveying a vastly different story. McMahon binds readers to the story from the get-go with a slightly gruesome opener, an idyllic New England town, and a fictionalized local history that feels instantly authentic. This book is well suited for those kick-starting their mystery reading. While the thrill of the plot might keep readers up at night, the story always falls quickly back into the realm of the supernatural before becoming terribly scary."--Reviewed by Emily— From Emily Recommends
The latest novel from New York Times bestselling author Jennifer McMahon (The Winter People) is an atmospheric, gripping, and suspenseful tale that probes the bond between sisters and the peril of keeping secrets. 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.
