Review: The Inn on Hanging Hill by Christy Barritt

With an intensely spooking opening scene in the prologue, set fifteen years prior to the rest of the book, The Inn on Hanging Hill immediately captured my attention. The author peppered this story with many twists and turns and took me by surprise multiple times. There were plenty of suspicious characters who seemed to know something about the past events, yet they were very good at evading the questions that Lindsey asked. The author did a great job of making it very difficult to determine who was trustworthy. The mystery surrounding Lindsey’s abduction and her missing memories added a lot of confusion for her, too.

I really enjoyed the way Lindsey and Benjamin connected and began to grow close as they worked on the house together. They were both characters that I liked and hoped the best for even as there were some questions relating to why Benjamin was back in town.

I highly recommend this book to readers who enjoy suspenseful tales that will keep you guessing through much of book.

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.
