I really enjoyed this quick read.

What starts off as a party friendly, Island fun-zone for Spring Breakers, deteriorates into something much more ominous. A dead frat guy, a young woman that holds the key to a secret, and then there is Mackenzie and Kristen who get wrapped up into it all.

I am trying my best as to not go into too much detail in this review but suffice it to say, the author does a great job in setting up the story, establishing the bond between Mackenzie and Kristen before smackin

This was a fun, short summer read. I love creepy stories set in the South and this one was really entertaining. The main character was likeable and you find yourself hoping he gets out of this alive.

I dove into this book and could hardly put it down until the last page. I can honestly say I could not predict how it would end. Mackenzie is an ordinary teenager who lives on an island resort owned by his parents. He helps them with the day to day until a frat boy dies during a hazing ritual. After that, nothing is as it seems. The best way to read this book is to jump in and enjoy. If you're a fan of old-school horror/thrillers, this is right up your alley!

If you are a fan of teen fiction in the vein of RL Stine's Fear Street series this book might be right up your alley.

What I liked: Fast paced plot that never hangs up or gets snagged, just comes at you relentlessly.
What i disliked: Nonexistant character development for main character's GF. Some minor plotholes.

I write fiction that takes readers to charming and oftentimes sinister areas of The South. My new book, The Reading Buddy, is a throwback to the teen horror and thriller novels from the 1990s.
