"An edgy and haunting debut novel about a group of friends who reunite after one of them has returned from a mysterious two-year disappearance. Julie is missing, and the missing don't often return. But Elise knows Julie better than anyone, and she feels in her bones that her best friend is out there, and that one day she'll come back. She's right. Two years to the day that Julie went missing, she reappears with no memory of where she's been or what happened to her. Along with Molly and Mae, their two close friends from college, the women decide to reunite at the eccentric, remote Red Honey Inn. But the second Elise sees Julie, she knows something is wrong--she's emaciated, with sallow skin, chipped teeth and odd appetites. In so many ways, Julie seems to be the friend they all loved and lost. But in others, she seems to be a stranger. When bad weather traps them inside the hotel, tensions flare. Elise begins to hear scratching within the walls, to see the slither of shadows cast by nothing. And as the weekend unfurls, it becomes impossible to deny that the Julie who vanished two years ago is not the same Julie who came back. But then who--or what--is she?"--… (mer)

Terrible. The only reason it wasn’t a total waste of time, and why I gave it 2 stars instead of 1, is the writing was pretty good. But I really can’t stand the horror genre. If I had known I wouldn’t have bothered. ( )

Oh my goodness, y'all, this book...this book was deliciously and vividly CREEPY. And humorous at times. And touching.
Sound like an odd combination?
Yes.
And it worked. What a page turner!

This is the story of four friends who meet up for a weekend away to reconnect after their friend Julie, missing and thought dead, turns up on her front porch on the two year anniversary of her disappearance.

Only Julie is...different.

The story is told from the point of view of Elise, who is closest to Julie. WIth them at what is possibly the oddest and uncomfortably overdone and creepy hotel is Mia and Molly. They all have their own issues and a lot of history together. The tale is part exploration of relationships, of shared pasts and how they bind us together (good and bad), and part pure horror.

Harrison dangles scary bits and bobs at us through the first part of the story. Enough to make us question what Elise is seeing, maybe to wonder if she is paranoid or has more to worry about, and then she really dives into the horror and gore. Her descriptions are vivid, the setting is delightfully weird and the atmosphere is dark. The story picks up speed in the second half and will have you checking windows and doors (and possibly put you off ground beef for a while.)

A fantastic debut from Rachel Harrison - I look forward to reading more from this author. ( )

The end of the book blew it for me
Like normal. Normal. Then a flesh eater.
If it’s a zombie book. Be a zombie book
But don’t throw a zombie in at the end.

I'm not sure if I liked this book or not. It was pretty slow and I feel like some subplots didn't get resolved.

The characters were complex, but not in any way that made me like them. I just have confused feelings about this novel. ( )

Just what I needed right now. A group of four college girlfriends are growing apart as their lives take different directions when they get the news that one of them has disappeared while hiking. Two years later, their missing friend returns, with no explanations or memory of what happened. A few months after, the four get together for a reunion at a creepy hotel located in the remote woods of upstate New York, where they gradually realize that their returned friend has changed--not in a good way. Make no mistake about it: this is an old-fashioned horror story, and I loved it. The tension and weirdness gradually ramp up until the book becomes unputdownable. It has a cinematic feel to it, and the first-time author employs the tropes of horror to good effect. I will look forward to her future books. ( )
