'Get it out of me.' It was the last message Holly received from her brother, Dane, before he was found cleaved open in his fiance's lavish Savannah townhouse. Police ruled his death a suicide sparked by psychosis, but Holly can't shake the idea that something else must have happened... Something involving another message he sent that night, the one that mentioned a 'game' his fiance, Maura, wanted to play... Determined to discover the truth, Holly begins to stalk Maura -- a magnetic, black-eyed florist with a penchant for carnivorous plants. But what begins as an investigation quickly veers into a darker fixation, one that lures Holly into the depths of Maura's world: Savannah high society, eerie black roses, and a whisper of something more sinister. Soon, Holly is feeling a dark attraction to the one woman she shouldn't trust. As Holly falls deeper for Maura and her secrets, she's left with only one choice: find out what happened to Dane... before she meets the same fate.… (mer)

I had a lot of mixed feelings about this novel. Some things I really liked...others bothered me. The overall plot was actually compelling. I love gothic horror, and from the book's cover description, it sounded promising. It wasn't long though before I found that I didn't really like any of the characters, and the up and down pace of the story was really frustrating. I just couldn't become immersed in the story almost from the beginning. The idea for the storyline had good bones for the birth of a really creepy psychological thriller...but the follow-through just didn't seem to be happening. There was too much focus on the on again off again romance between Holly and Maura, and some questionable methods that Holly used to investigate her brother’s death. The story didn't explore these enough to add anything to or advance the plot much. The discussion of how much Holly didn't trust Maura, but still gets sexually involved with her became repetitive. I’m always on board for a good gothic horror novel with some romance thrown in the mix.... but this one just doesn't hit that mark very well. The romance is obviously entirely wrong and should never have gone beyond the attraction stage since Holly believes that Maura was involved with her brother’s death. "I think you might have something to do with my brother's death..., but in the meantime...let's go to bed". I don't think so! As I said there was lots of "mixed feelings about the story on my end. I think this author has a great deal of talent and this is a first novel for her...so I'm hoping that she will release another. I would be more than willing to give her another try. ( )

After Holly's brother allegedly dies by suicide, she decides to investigate further, and is drawn into a relationship with his mysterious and creepy girlfriend. The author does a great job of ratcheting up the suspense, and Holly is a likeable, realistic character. Although she doesn't always make good choices, you can understand why she feels compelled to keep pursuing the truth, even when things get weird and dangerous. If you like creepy horror novels, this one's for you! ( )
