First and foremost, thank you to NetGalley for the Advanced Readers Copy (ARC) of Murder on the Class Trip (Maya and Sandra Mystery, #3) by Lee Hollis.  I was delighted to receive this book for free in exchange for my honest review.  I was intrigued by the synopsis of Murder on the Class Trip by Lee Hollis because politics intrigue me, and I enjoyed visiting Washington, D.C. several years ago, so I was excited to receive an ARC of this book.

Book Review: The Lifeguard by Richie Tankersly Cusick

The Lifeguard by Richie Tankersley Cusick opens with Kelsey and her mom taking a ferry over to Beverly Island to vacation with her mom's boyfriend and his three children. However, Kelsey's beach vacation isn't the paradise it should be. There's a note under her pillow from Beth, who's missing, and Issac, the local drunk, won't stop bothering her. On top of that, there have been several drownings on the island. Little does Kelsey know that lifeguards don't always save people. 

I am in the process of rereading my way through my childhood. When scrolling through Instagram, I saw a post from the user talespointhorrorbookclub where they were voting between two books for their book club, one of which was The Lifeguard by Richie Tankersley Cusick. I decided that this should be the next book for me to reread.

Not remembering much about the YA Novel, it was like reading it for the first time. However, as the book progressed, little tidbits starting coming back to me. I wasn't sure if I remembered everything correctly because there were quite a few red herrings. This was one of her best works in my opinion. Part horror, part suspense, this book was engrossing, and I wish it had been storming to give me that ambiance that would have made it creepier.

Five out of five stars is what I gave The Lifeguard because it was absolutely phenomenal, and I enjoyed it just as much as I did when I read it as a kid. Richie Tankersley Cusick is a fantastic storyteller, and this novel is the perfect book for children eleven and up wanting to read a horror book.
