The Sun Down Motel by Simone St. James

The Sun Down Motel by Simone St. James

I can’t tell you how absolutely ecstatic I was to get approved for an ARC of Simone St. James’ latest, The Sun Down Motel. She is an amazing author who I didn’t discover until last year but have been quickly catching up on. Her books are atmospheric, thoughtful, spooky, and ultimately hopeful. The mysteries are well-crafted and leave you guessing. This latest one is just as good as her previous books, and because I’m partial to spooky stories set in hotels, this is my very favorite of hers (though The Broken Girls is definitely a very close second). Also, can we talk about how gorgeous that cover is? I’m a sucker for a great cover, and this one captures the personality of the book so perfectly. I’ll be highly recommending this book to everyone I meet.
