of fantasy thrown in to keep you on the edge of your seat The story alternates from 1991 to present day, focusing on the friendship between two teenage girls, Heather and Becca The tale reveals bit by bit, challenging readers to decide for themselves what information is missing and what could be happening It s not possible that the Red Lady has come back to life after centuries to get revenge, is it Heather and Becca form a storytelling club, as the title suggests They meet at an unoccupied house currently on the market with two other friends All four girls love being scared, but one story seems all too real Becca shares the history of the Red Lady, a woman scorned and out for vengeance Dirt in victims mouth Buried alive Multiple random deaths Did it really happen In a teenager s mind, anything is possible but this time, Becca has convinced them the woman is still alive today The dilemma is set quite early on, yet the pertinent details seep out through the subsequent chapters We don t know everything, and when we begin to see Heather break down in the current time period, we know something bad happened years ago.The characters are smart and witty I liked the relationships in the book, even when they were strained or awkward Heather s mother wants her to forget the past Heather s husband has no clue what s going on in his wife s life, but he is generally a doting and loving partner She s just good at hiding things from him because she thinks what s happening around her isn t really happening Yet she s a child psychologist and should know better The dynamics between the past and the present are well presented, allowing us to continue to guess Someone knows something, but we can t figure out who in Heather s life is keeping secrets too Then again, we wonder if she s making it all up, or is it another case of an unreliable narrator who is the guilty party herself I bounced around trying to guess, and even in the end, there s enough room for readers to summon their own interpretation.On the whole, I really enjoyed the story I found the plot captivating, and there were a bunch of red herrings and suspenseful moments where I kinda wanted to meet this Red Lady If you haven t done anything wrong, she s not supposed to hurt you I d be okay to look her in the eyes without dying, right Nonetheless, as an introduction to Walters work, this was great It s well written, concise but strongly descriptive, and full of lovely imagery Minor concerns over plot points had me squinting from time to time, but only the kinds of things that you look the other way on, as it helps make the storycreepy Heather was too relaxed at times I would ve called the cops or talked to someone else, rather than just try to solve the mystery myself That s why people are different though we do things our own way, so I m sure someone else might follow Heather s path too.I recommend this one It s got bunches of creepy moments, a few laughs, and tons of head shaking yikes, what s wrong with people scenes Around 4.5 stars for making me a little anxious and obsessive about solving the mystery of a serial killer 2.5 rounded up 3 mysterious, witch y, reddish, mouth full of dirt

thought Oh yes this is it Rituals for conjuring a witch, little girls secret murder club, a story moving back and forth between four girls who are a little obsessed about spooky things from serial killers, murderers , horror stories and Heather s grown up version who became a psychiatrist helps the troubled children But at the beginning of the book , we may realize Heather needshelp for her well being because she has killed her childhood friend Becca, got away with murder But now her secret is about to reveal because somebody KNOWS what she did What I liked about this book is the little girls relationship dynamic Rebecca is a quite demanding leader with her amazing imagination about telling horror stories If she didn t die or did she We don t know till the end of the book she might compete with Stephen King and Joe Hill with her quite riveting storytelling Her story is so heart wrenching, her obsession about Red Lady, her relationship with her abusive mother, her confusing mind who did not know how to differentiate the real or delusion.I wish this story wasn t about only Heather Because her future self really irritated me She is mostly acting like paranoid, hysterical with her weird giggles, making herself bleed, hitting her punches on steering wheel, suspicious moods about her husband and best friend It s hard to empathize her At some parts, I thought maybe she deserved what was happening to her Maybe three little girls might have involved in Becca s story and later, when somebody found out and threaten them about what they have done could be a better storyline Because it s obvious, the author is inspired of Stephen King s story And most of his early King stories, children suffer from traumatic experiences with supernatural things and then we see their future selves how could they fight against their childhood nightmares Like It , Body I love the pace of the story I wanted to know who was chasing Heather Is Becca still alive or is somebody acting like her Is Red Woman real So I kept turning pages to fill my void about learning the truth Well, did ending and all the revelations satisfy me Not, too much There are still so many unanswered questions and I think author decided to leave like this Let us question what if the urban legends are true, what if our worst nightmares are real Writing is good, pacing and mystery is gripping, I couldn t put it down But the characters , their actions, way of talking , their development are the weakest parts they made me the cut the points and also I was expecting different ending maybesurprise and twist That s what I felt Thanks to Netgalley and the publisher for advance access to this book in exchange for my honest review bloginstagramfacebooktwitter 2.5 stars When Heather

truth Alternating between Then and Now perspectives, the reader slowly learns Becca s fate Following the girls 12 year old perspectives, as they hang out discussing all things macabre was the only most interesting part for me.Becca was obsessed with the story of a woman called The Red Lady, think Bloody Mary, and she could not stop talking about her So much so, that it begin to affect everyone in the group.She regaled them with tales of the Red Lady, a woman purportedly killed for being a witch, seeking her revenge for all of time Her storytelling is so vivid, the girls begin to believe it Soon it is hard for them to decipher what is real and what is made up.The Now perspective follows grown up Heather, a child psychologist, as she tries to piece together who knows the truth about her, Becca and their final night together.This part of the story was not enjoyable for me Personally, I found adult Heather annoying AF and I could not understand the decisions she was making Her thought process and decisions werelike she was still 12 years old, as opposed to a functioning adult.Because of my disconnect from the Now portions, the overall story felt uneven I would rush through Now in order to get back to Then Due to this, it took me a bit longer to get through this than normal.The premise was interesting, but the execution fell short Also, for me, I was disappointed with one of the big reveals and felt that some of the narrative didn t fully back up that reveal I know this sounds cryptic but I don t want to risk giving anything away.This being said, I think the writing shows a lot of promise I would pick upwork from this author.Thank you so much to the publisher, Crooked Lane Books, for providing me with a copy of this to read and review I always appreciate the opportunity to provide my opinion and I know a lot of readers will really enjoy this one This is basically Goosebumps for grownups.First and foremost, the description for this book gives away entirely too much of the plot The only thing not covered in the summary is the ending Alright clears throat here it goesThis was an exhausting read for me and I attribute this to the writing style The story is told in the popular Then Now alternating chapter format, of which I m a HUGE fan The worst way this can go wrong is if one of those narratives is unbearable and in this case, it This is basically

and reactions I couldn t skim through these chapters fast enough As for the Then chapters narrated by tween Heather, there is entirely TOO MUCH DIALOGUE If I wanted to endure tween girls bickering incessantly I d go hang out in a middle school cafeteria There s little to no character development of the four girls featured in this story We re just kinda dropped into their lives and expected to connect with them.The gratuitous pop culture references are annoying It s the 90 s, we get it.The plotline led me to believe this would be a dark, creepy and foreboding read Unfortunately that promise didn t pan out I was provided an ARC by the publisher in exchange for an honest review
