The Inn on Hanging Hill

Lindsey Waters never wanted to return to the seaside inn where she grew up. Too many traumatic memories haunt the place, both from her childhood and from days gone by. But with guilt relentlessly chasing her after a tragic choice, she’s desperate for a fresh start.

Mysterious incidents begin plaguing the inn—dangerous incidents—that make it clear someone wants to scare Lindsey away. But why? Does it have anything to do with the two weeks missing from her memory when she was abducted at age twelve?

Childhood friend Benjamin Newsom seems like an answer to prayer when he shows up to work as a handyman. But something is different about him, something Lindsey can’t put her finger on. She’s certain Benjamin harbors secrets.

As peril continues to close in, Lindsey must decide if she wants to face her past or run. She doesn’t know whom she can trust, and whatever choices she makes will determine if she lives or if she becomes part of the inn’s tragic legacy.

MY Review of The Inn on Hanging Hill

The Inn on Hanging Hill by Christy Barret

Ever picked up a book and it would not leave your head? That is this book. Within the first chapter I was hooked. Literally. Here is the first line:

““We Shouldn’t Be Doing This,” Lindsey Waters whispered as she stood in the dark hallway next to her sometimes friend, sometimes enemy, and all-the-time troublemaker.”

I loved the little hints woven into the story as to who dun it. The characters backgrounds were told like you were getting to know a real person over time. Just small bits of knowledge dropped here and there that helped you form a clear picture of who the characters were and what circumstances helped them become the people they are today. LOVED it.

The mystery really kept me guessing. It was not something you could figure out in the first few chapters, and I really enjoyed the conclusion explanation that explained everything! Full of secrets and unexplained happenings, very well done.

Overall, this story was interesting, intriguing, and had great characters. 5 Stars.

Christy Barritt is an author, freelance writer and speaker who lives in Virginia. She’s married to her Prince Charming, a man who thinks she’s hilarious—but only when she’s not trying to be. Christy’s a self-proclaimed klutz, an avid music lover who’s known for spontaneously bursting into song, and a road trip aficionado. She’s only won one contest in her life—and her prize was kissing a pig (okay, okay… actually she did win the Daphne du Maurier Award for Excellence in Suspense and Mystery also). Her current claim to fame is showing off her mother, who looks just like former First Lady Barbara Bush.

When she’s not working or spending time with her family, she enjoys singing, playing the guitar, and exploring small, unsuspecting towns where people have no idea how accident prone she is.
