Book Review: Music From The Dead by Bebe Faas Rice

Music From The Dead by Bebe Faas Rice is a young adult horror novel originally published in April 1997.  Marnie and her cousin Peter drive up to the mansion that Marnie's father rented for the summer ahead of her father.  When the cousins arrive at the mansion called Stonycraig and settle in, Marnie is nervous because she thought she saw a shadow in one of the windows.  Then, she starts hearing a woman crying late at night.  Are the stories about Stonycraig being haunted true? This is a book I originally read as a teenager, and I remember being impressed by the storyline and writing.  I recently decided to reread it as an adult to see if it was as good as I remembered.  I have to say it was phenomenal.  Well-written and unputdownable.   Even though there were parts that came back to me as I made my way through Music From The Dead , I still found it to be perfectly eerie and creepy.  There was even a little bit of romance but nothing inappropriate for a tween or teen.  The only com

Book Review: The Therapist by B.A. Paris

book review the therapist ba paris

The Therapist by B.A. Paris is about a couple named Alice and Leo moving into a gated community called "The Circle", where nothing is as it seems. When Alice learns of her new home's secret, she starts investigating the previous owner named Nina who was a therapist. However, none of the neighbors want to talk about her.

When I bought this latest book by B.A. Paris, I knew absolutely nothing about the storyline. I got it solely based on the fact of who wrote it, and I was not disappointed in the least. The Therapist sucked me in from the very beginning, and I think I may like this book even more than I did The Breakdown.

Up until the last fifty or so pages, I thought one person was the murderer, and then, I started thinking that it was a different person. I was correct in my second guess, and I don't know how I let myself be led astray for so long. The author did a great job of throwing suspicion on all of the neighbors at one point or another. With that being said, I did think there was more to next door neighbors, Lorna and Edward. I thought they might be Leo's parents since he was estranged from them, but you'll have to read the book for yourself to see if I was right or not.

I enjoyed the fact that I could escape into The Therapist. It was a lighter read without too much gore and horror, which is nice for a change. Five out of five stars is what I gave The Therapist by B.A. Paris. If you enjoyed this book, I recommend That Night by Chevy Stevens.
