I had read Jennifer’s book, The Winter People and absolutely loved it. The Night Sister had me excited to read more of McMahon’s work!
The Tower Motel used to be a thriving attraction for the likes of all sorts located in rural Vermont. There was never a vacant room. Unfortunately it now stands in disrepair after the highway was built, visitors became sparse. Holding many memories there is Amy, Piper and Margot. The three friends played there often, skating the empty pool. One day, the girls discover a dark secret about Amy’s family. Something the girls will never speak, that ruined their friendship forever.
As much as they want to forget, the past comes back to haunt them when Amy’s family is discovered in the old motel, a crime that Amy is being blamed for. Piper and Margot are forced to remember what they had found that summer so long ago. They know exactly what happened and what must be done.
What horrible secrets have been lurking in the Tower Motel all of these years? What is Amy’s family hiding from the world? Something truly monstrous that cannot be tamed.
I read this book in two days! I was blown away again by McMahon’s work and her ability to ensnare my mind in her stories. This is a must read, no doubt about it!
