My review of DRAGONFLY SUMMER can be found at High Fever Books.

J.H. Moncrieff may be best known for her horror works, like her recently released Those Who Came Before or her Ural Mountains creature-feature, Return to Dyatlov Pass, but as her Audible Original Dragonfly Summer proves, she’s more than adept at tackling a straight-up murder mystery.

When she was a teenager, one of Jo Carter’s best friends was murdered. Now, thirty years later, she receives a strange newspaper clipping and news of ano

When Jo receives a message in the mail dredging up a tragedy that devastated her senior year in high school, she returns to her childhood home to find out what really happened to her friend Sam. Not everyone feels a happy reunion at her reappearance, nor her prying into the lives of her former friends and their parents. Moncrieff has crafted a thriller that keeps you listening well past your bedtime. Natalie Gold is an excellent narrator of this gripping tale. (This is an Audible original.)

This well-constructed mystery will keep you guessing. There are enough suspects and red herrings to sink your teeth into; and the fact that multiple crimes, both past and present, may or may not be connected is an added bonus to the mix. In the end, most of the questions I had while reading were answered, which is usually a good thing. And the final pages surprised me enough to make for a satisfying payoff. If you enjoy suspense with a sprinkling of the paranormal (just the right amount of ghost ...more

They say you can’t go home but that’s not always true. It’s just sometimes not recommended, depending on what you left behind at home and what parts of your past will be there to greet you. This story was full of aching history, mysteries galore and many lives impacted by a singular tragedy that took place years ago. The narration was impeccable and the narrator managed to convey emotion and varying voices in a subtle and brilliant way. It gave personality and faces to the characters. I’m a fan ...more

Very good book, but a little too predictable for my taste. Or maybe the author did an excellent job at foreshadowing and I was paying more attention.

I intend to look for more books by the same author.
