This Week’s Book

The Sun Down Motel by Simone St. James

Publication Date: February 18, 2020

The secrets lurking in a rundown roadside motel ensnare a young woman, just as they did her aunt thirty-five years before, in this new atmospheric suspense novel from the national bestselling and award-winning author of The Broken Girls.

Upstate NY, 1982. Every small town like Fell, New York, has a place like the Sun Down Motel. Some customers are from out of town, passing through on their way to someplace better. Some are locals, trying to hide their secrets. Viv Delaney works as the night clerk to pay for her move to New York City. But something isn’t right at the Sun Down, and before long she’s determined to uncover all of the secrets hidden…

Three Reasons It’s on My TBR

  1. The book is shelved as mystery/thriller on Goodreads and described as suspense in its summary, and I don’t read many thrillers or suspense novels. They’re genres I want to read more of this year–to push my reading outside my comfort zone–especially thrillers and suspense by female authors.
  2. I’ve heard good things about Simone St. James’s previous books.
  3. The cover captured my eye.
