In a Dark Dark Wood is such an wonderful mystery novel!
Ohhhhhh boy oh boy oh boy. If you love a good mystery/thriller, then this is a DEFINITE read for you. It’s been on my reading wish list for a couple of years now, and I finally got a chance to read it. I have to admit that I read it in less than THREE DAYS! It’s a definite page turner.
I ironically related very well to the main character. She’s got a lot of baggage and finds herself loving her small apartment and running out her stress on the pavement. The novel’s basic plot is that she gets invited to a “hen party” [bachelorette] for a friend she hasn’t spoken to or seen in ten years. She’s confused about the invite, but goes anyway.
As you might guess, the party takes place deep in the woods. The characters she meets at the party are like something from the Clue game. They’ve each got something mysteriously “off” about them. The twisted plot finally ends in a way that you really can’t see coming. You’re not going to be able to put this one down until you find out who the “bad guy” is! Trust me! It’s a perfect book for the beach or a summer trip.
