Dark, Ghostly, So Good Something strange is going on at The Sun Down Motel In 1982, 20 year old Vivian Delaney stumbles upon a job opening as the night shift clerk at The Sun Down Motel, located in eerie Fell, New York During her shifts, Vivian begins to notice some inexplicable occurrences at the rundown motel doors randomly opening and closing, strange phone calls, the smell of cigarette smoke when no one is present It seems that the Sun Down is haunted Making things even dramatic are the creepy customers who come to stay At the same time, young women in Fell are being murdered Vivian plays investigator and when she comes up with a lead, she vanishes without a trace.Fast forward to 2017, Vivian s 20 year old niece, Carly, arrives in Fell seeking answers about her aunt Vivian s disappearance Carly finds herself doing Vivian s old job at the Sun Down and also begins to notice the strange happenings at the motel As she investigates her aunt s disappearance, she finds herself in extreme danger.There are so many things I loved about this book Simone St James transported me to Fell, NY The atmosphere is rife with eeriness The whole time I was reading this, I kept thinking that it would make for the perfect Halloween read The supernatural plays a large role I am not the most tolerant when it comes to the supernatural, but it works in this book The ghosts serve a purpose not to scare, but to remind of events from the past Vivian and Carly share some of the same characteristics, but their voices are distinct The mystery is intriguing and while the plot is not the most complex, I was riveted and could not put this book downIt was a little rocky in the beginning and felt like a cheesy tv movie, but the the better it got I was wholly entertained by The Sun Down Motel and I highly recommend to those who enjoy creepy, atmospheric mysteries I received an ARC of this book from Edelweiss and the publisher in exchange for an honest review. Twilight zone s intro music blasting out in my mind nananana I m in the middle ground between light and shadow, between science and superstition and I m at the dimension of imagination.Nanana I cannot sleep I cannot move I cannot breathe When I was younger so much younger than today I never needed anybody s help in anyway but even all ghost members of Beatles cannot save me I m numb, terrified I m speechless I m about to do something in my pants but I don t I barely hold myself Thankfully, I wore diapers before reading something sooooo scary So I m giving my 5 gaazzzzzillion ssstaaarss I cannot even speak or properly write, this book is so horrifying I wish I hold my childhood Teddy bear to gather my wits but I already ripped its head when I was nine, reading Salem s Lot Dammit It s midnight in LA, even my 24 7 partying neighbor is sleeping My husband is still making entire Jurassic World s sound effects by snoring loudly But I m alert Eyes shut open Already all lights in the house are turned on I m at the verge of hysterical breakdown, waiting to see Sun Down Motel s ghosts banging on the door Is this smoke I smell right now Is this a salesman walking toward me Who keeps knock, knock my heavenly house s doors Eric Clapton Daattt Freddy Mercury Nope He will rock not knock Okay, I can t stand any, dear lovely occupants of Sun Down Motel, I m not night clerk, I m just regular reader who loves your stories I m not talking about one of your friendly one named Casper , I actually find it overrated and Simone St James did an amazing job because I didn t eat for 8 hours, I didn t move an inch and now my legs turned into jellies that I couldn t move them, they re useless right now And of course I had limited booze service from my husband you can imagine drinking and empty stomach could be definition of living dangerously I didn t blink and I think my face is also paralyzed I m just looking like a survivor after over botox injections I didn t even visit to bathroom so my bladder already performing Under Pressure as a tribute to Bowie and Mercury.As a summary This book is mind blowing, horrifying and so much better than entire horror movies I ve watched lately It s better than Bad Times at the El Royale I wish salesman Simon could dance like Chris Hemsworth but you cannot get what you want all the time , entertaining as Bates Motel this time night clerks are women and innocent, but we cannot say the same for the deceased occupants of the place whose souls stayed there for their unfinished businesses and they re as creepy, spooky, disturbing as Overlook occupants So we have an amazing gem is an impressive combination of Vacancy, Inkeepers and Poltergeist.In 1982 Viv Delaney, night clerk of Sun Down hotel, vanishes into thin air They never find her corpse Nobody knows her whereabouts Till in the present time her niece Carly, arrives at the hotel, getting the same job her missing aunt had performed decades ago After her mom s sudden death because of big C, Carly is so adamant to find out what has happened to her aunt By getting rid of the burden of the past, she feels like she may designate her own path for her own future steps.As soon as Carly arrives to Fell and starts her new gig, she s going to find out, she s living ten times worse experience of Paranormal Activity movie sequels and she knows who she is gonna call of course Ghostbusters but there is bad reception at the hotel The story is narrated by two people and two timelines We move back and forth between 1982 and today We have Viv and her niece Carly as narrators They re so interestingly similar each other, only their zones are different but both of them brave, smart, risk taker, loner, introverted, happy with their own terms and small things kind of ladies I thought too many times, Carly could be daughter of Viv Their instincts and approaches to the events, their actions are so similar Carly is too determined to find the secrets about the hotel and what happened to her aunt which puts her life in danger because she literally has to deal with the supernatural entities who could help her show the truth There are so many amazing characters such as Helen I visualized as Billie Lourd, only Carrie Fisher s talented daughter could handle this creepy, weird but also loveable character And of course nobody knows what is like to be the sad man behind blue eyes Nick is also memorable character, hiding from his traumatic past, a great partner of crime to help Carly to solve the puzzle.I had great, terrifying time and I truly enjoyed every second of it by reading this book Special thanks to NetGalley and Berkley Publishing Group to share this best ARC COPY and give me early Christmas gift in exchange my honest review And honestly guys, PLEASE READ IT, READ IT, READ IT And special thanks to Simone St James for creating this amazing, memorable, stunning, mind blowing masterpiece
