At first I had to plod thru the book. I liked the plot well enough, but I found it rather a chore to get thru. I would begin to get impatient, and then something really cool or unexpected happened, and it was enough to keep my interest and keep me reading.
I really enjoyed the twists that came, and even began to appreciate the absurdity of some of the events. For instance, the landlady was very absurd, but later, when you discover the truth about her, it is not only unexpected, but amusing.
I got thru the book and was pleasantly surprised at how much I enjoyed it. Granted, I still had the feeling that it could have been written "tighter" but when all was said and done, I understand why it wasn't.
A week or so ago I read this book again. I enjoyed it SO MUCH more! The knowing what was going to happen did not dampen my pleasure. In fact, it made me appreciate the book more. Ms. Cross really planned this one out to the last detail. My favorite moment had to be with the death of a very important character. It took me by surprise, but I also laughed! I perhaps should have seen it coming, but I didn't. The visual of the manner of death gave me a good few chuckles.
This Amy Cross book will not be to everyone's taste. It is unusual, feels slow (even tho there is a very good reason for the pacing), and is even frustrating in a couple of parts. But when you are done, if you are inclined to give the book another chance, I think you will like it so much better the second time around.
I'd love for this to be made into a television episode. I think it would be perfect. It would translate much better to screen than it is in print. But I still would recommend this to Amy Cross fans.
Bobbie’s done something unforgivable. Now on the run, in the middle of cold winter’s night, she seeks refuge at an old B & B. But this isn’t your normal bed and breakfast. The woman who checks her in barely speaks a word and her face is covered in gauze and the other guests are odd and won’t let her sleep.
She’s stuck between a rock and a hard place. Stay at the Inn with it’s creepy guests and mysterious goings on, or face the killer stalking the snowy streets outside. He likes to kill when the pristine snow covers everything in shining white. The blood looks so red then.
From the beginning, you are pulled into this mystery, and when the weird stuff starts happening, you won’t want to stop until you get answers.
This was creepy on so many levels. A pleasant surprise for this horror fan.
I own a copy of this book. My review is voluntarily given.
Bobbie is running out of options. She's on the run and needs somewhere to spend the night, but the time is late and snow is falling. All the B&Bs are full. All but one... When she sets foot on the front steps, she's sucked into something she never bargained for.
Some of the characters verge on the absurd and for a while I wasn't sure if there was a plot or this was a running commentary of the creepy wackos in the inn and their efforts to prevent Bobbie from getting the sleep she desperately needs, but I'm glad I stuck with it. The main gimmick becomes clear around a third of the way in and after that you can play connect-the-dots as well as guess what would happen in the rest of the story. I enjoy stories where innocuous background objects play a larger role later on, and there was a good amount of that here. The ridiculousness of the characters even becomes humorous once you find out how they got there, especially the landlady with the bandaged face.
I might not have picked this up if not for the fact this was a novella. If it was a full-length novel it would have been a chore to get through, but as a novella it's short enough that even if you didn't like it you can console yourself it was only half a novel.
