5.0 out of 5 stars Great Read,
November 26, 2011
This review is from: Summer Shack: A Killer Vacation (Paperback)Kimberly and Deborah are happy that High School is now behind them. Now they can plan their lives their way. Deb invites Kim to spend a month with her at her parents' cottage in Wisconsin. The girls are excited, after all they are now masters of their own souls. There is only one thing Deb requires and that is for Kim to help her film a documentary of the area. She wants it for a pre college project. Kim doesn't think that is a bad price to pay for an entire month of fun.
Soon after arriving, the girls were surprised to hear about the arrest of a serial killer. It was both scary and exciting to them and as they hear more and more stories from the locals, Deb decides this story would make a better film. Deb decides that being the first to film inside the killer's beach house, where the bodies were, would seal the films success. But what will happen to the girls and their friends as they go places they should never be?
I enjoyed this book. The author did a very good job of bringing forth the characters and the part they played in the storyline using the different personalities in Kim, Deb and their two friends. Each young lady brought to the table an element that helped bring the story alive and keep it flowing. She also did a nice job in her description of the locals and the local people. You wondered (and that is what you should be doing) just how each one fit into the mystery that was growing. As usual, I did not see the ending coming and I was surprised. All in all it was a smooth flowing read, had elements of surprise and definitely suspense. The story also addressed some issues that young girls may be facing and it had a great ending.
This book delivered and I recommend it.
