The dead of winter.
An isolated island off the coast of Maine.
A sinister house looming over the sea …
He’s a reclusive writer whose macabre imagination creates chilling horror novels. She’s a down-on-her-luck actress reduced to staging kids’ puppet shows. He knows a dozen ways to kill with his bare hands. She knows a dozen ways to kill with laughs.
But she’s not laughing now. When she was a teenager, he terrified her. Now they’re trapped together on a snowy island off the coast of Maine. Is he the villain she remembers or has he changed? Her head says no. Her heart says yes.
It’s going to be a long, hot winter
I just Love Susan Elizabeth Phillips. I had heard that this was a little different then her other books but really it had a quirky heroine and a brooding hot main man sure what else do you need! Oh yeah a dark hot story line 🙂
I absolutely adored the writing and the gothic setting. The mystery aspect, both about the tragic family past and the present issue of “who wants Annie out of the island”, were very well done. Susan Elizabeth Phillips is no mystery writer but she sure kept me in the dark the whole story.
I loved this book so much and as always wait with bated breath for her next one!
