Synopsis:New York Times bestselling author Wendy Corsi Staub returns to Mundy’s Landing—a small town where bygone bloodshed has become big business. Hair neatly braided, hands serenely clasped, eyes closed, the young woman appeared to be sound asleep. But the peaceful tableau was a madman’s handiwork. Beneath the covers, her white nightgown was spattered with blood. At daybreak, a horrified family would discover her corpse tucked into their guest room. The cunning killer would strike again . . . and again . . . before vanishing into the mists of time. A century ago, the Sleeping Beauty Murders terrified picturesque Mundy’s Landing. The victims, like the killer, were never identified. Now, on the hundredth anniversary, the Historical Society’s annual “Mundypalooza” offers a hefty reward for solving the notorious case. Annabelle Bingham, living in one of the three Murder Houses, can’t escape the feeling that her family is being watched—and not just by news crews and amateur sleuths. She’s right. Having unearthed the startling truth behind the horrific crimes, a copycat killer is about to reenact them—beneath the mansard roof of Annabelle’s dream home...

I can definately enjoy a chilling, psychological thriller. And the more credible the more difficult it gets to put it down. Wendy Corsi Staub truely do does know how to come up with a thrilling story. She had me flipping the pages till the very end.
The story is told from different points of view so you are fully informed about everything that isgoing on except who the killer is that one stays a secret till the end. I can appriciate it when the identity of the killer is not revealed (or I am able to guess who it is) halfway trough the book.
This is the second book in the Mundy's Lane series and the first one I read, but it can be read as a standalone. I will on the other hand look up her other books and definately Blood Red, the first in the series since I enjoyed Blue Moon so much I am very curious to read her other books.
My rating: 5/5
