About the Book
Lindsey Waters never wanted to return to the seaside inn where she grew up. Too many traumatic memories haunt the place, both from her childhood and from days gone by. But with guilt relentlessly chasing her after a tragic choice, she’s desperate for a fresh start.
Mysterious incidents begin plaguing the inn—dangerous incidents—that make it clear someone wants to scare Lindsey away. But why? Does it have anything to do with the two weeks missing from her memory when she was abducted at age twelve?
Childhood friend Benjamin Newsom seems like an answer to prayer when he shows up to work as a handyman. But something is different about him, something Lindsey can’t put her finger on. She’s certain Benjamin harbors secrets.
As peril continues to close in, Lindsey must decide if she wants to face her past or run. She doesn’t know whom she can trust, and whatever choices she makes will determine if she lives or if she becomes part of the inn’s tragic legacy.
In My Opinion
Christy Barritt always delivers fast-paced romantic suspense reads, and The Inn on Hanging Hill adds an element of eerie.
From the prologue—which takes place fifteen years prior to the rest of the book—to the last page, readers will be wondering what in the world is happening in this old inn. Lindsey is a character you just know wants to do good but somehow, she has been surrounded by people who want the opposite. And therefore, I wanted here to find her footing and a fresh start.
Benjamin seems like a good guy, but you just know there’s something off about him. I kept wavering on what that was right up until the truth is revealed.
With an inn as full of secrets as the townspeople, this book kept me guessing as to who was behind the happenings. This is a quick read just because you won’t want to put it down.
