    If I told you that people had been trying to kill my family and me my entire life, you would probably just think I was being paranoid, but it's not paranoia if it's real.

Jamaica Inn by Daphne Du Maurier Post

    Young Mary Yellan, honoring her mother's deathbed wish, travels to Jamaica Inn to live with her Aunt Patience and Uncle Joss Merlyn. Little does she know what awaits her there.
     It's an intriguing and riveting novel so much so that I couldn't put it down. It's filled with mystery and suspense and horrific events. A classic novel filled with the secrets of Jamaica  Inn.

Hush Hush by Laura Lippman Post

Hush Hush by Laura Lippman       Post

     In this mystery novel, Tess Monaghan, a private investigator returns again to solve a crime where a horrible mother is involved. There were a group of characters I had to keep track of that were a mixture of different people. I don't really like too many in a story. The story was good and interesting but a little challenging for me to read.
