The Burning Girls by C. J. Tudor @cjtudor @randomhouse #mystery #bookreview

Susanne’s Review:

Bewitching, Spooky, and Suspenseful!

Jack Brooks is the new Vicar in Chapel Croft.  She and her daughter Flo are new in town. Unfortunately for them, Chapel Croft has a history, and the community itself isn’t exactly welcoming. 

What is the town known for, you ask?  Exorcisms; Burning Girls; Martyrs; Missing Girls; and Murder.  

Not exactly homey, if I do say so myself.  

Upon moving into the cottage next to the Chapel, both Jack and Flo find themselves in danger, and neither is willing to admit it to the other.  

Tsk tsk. Big Mistake!  Huge, in Fact.

Ghosts of burning girls appear. Is it a trick of the eye? Most of the townsfolk act nice. Can they be trusted? Long kept secrets are discovered. What pray tell does it all mean?

The devil, my friends, is in the details.  

Atmospheric, Dark, and Wholly Entertaining. 

A brilliantly plotted, taut, character-driven suspense that kept me on the edge of my seat throughout.  “The Burning Girls” is yet another winner by C.J. Tudor, who continues to impress me and give a nod to one of her (and my) favorite authors, Stephen King.  

A huge thank you goes out to Kathleen Quinlan at Random House Publishing and NetGalley, for the arc. 

Published on Goodreads on 12.27.20.
