Shannon Kirk ð Gretchen EBOOK

GretchenMes Lucy’s first real friendBut Gretchen and her father have secrets of their own and an obsession with puzzles that draws Lucy into a terrifying new game of hide and seek Lucy’s dark past is about to come calling And this time for her and her mother in the house on the hill it might be too late to run Shannon Kirk is the ueen of WTF I fell in love with Kirk's writing last summer with her release of In The Vines In fact In The Vines was one of my top 10 novels for 2018 So when I heard the fabulous Shannon Kirk was coming out with a new novel for this summer I knew I needed to drop everything and read it Kirk's upcoming horror novel Gretchen continues to follow in In The Vines's footsteps as she ventures further into the gothic suspense genre Both In The Vines and Gretchen have similar Ruth Ware vibes so if you are enjoying Ware's latest novels then you'll definitely enjoy Kirk's writing Although the story is titled Gretchen it really focuses on fifteen year old Lucy and her mother Lucy and her mother are basically nomads hiding from their past Lucy's mom refuses to let her get too close to people—she has to wear color contacts she has to lie about her family life and she can't use the internet without supervision Lucy's mom is terrified of her daughter's father finding them due to his immense power and corruption In fact they have lived in eleven states since as long as Lucy can remember Lucy and her mom finally settle in rural New Hampshire hoping that the isolation of this small town will be the destination that they can finally call their mainstay home They find a perfect cottage owned by a single father and his daughter Gretchen They live on the ranch as well with another property nearby and have a full listing ready for Lucy and her mother to move into As Lucy and her mother settle into their new digs they start getting to know their new landlord and his daughter Gretchen is around the same age as Lucy and is desperate for friends Not having anyone besides her mother in her life Lucy accepts Gretchen's intensity as genuine interest and forges a friendship with her As the two get to know each other Lucy begins to uestion her new friend's behavior Gretchen is a very domineering friend and she has a peculiar obsession with puzzles I won't go into that obsession further in this review but let me tell ya OH BOY The longer Gretchen and Lucy maintain a friendship the information she finds out about her own life As Lucy begins to uncover the past about her dark family secrets Gretchen begins to be force to be reckoned with Gretchen is literally the most insane book I've ever read Shannon Kirk dives deep into the darkness with this story and I can't get the book out of my head The pacing is very similar to In The Vines so if you enjoyed how that story was told you'll definitely be ready for Gretchen The book goes deeper in its characterizations than Kirk's last novel and it sets the right formula for the reader to fully be immersed into these characters' lives As you read the story you will believe that you know how this story will play out but listen you really really don't There were multiple moments throughout the book where I was genuinely shocked at how the story was progressing and I legit yelled What the %#? multiple times in a good way Gretchen has multiple story arcs that develop throughout the novel and it allowed for each character to really play a role in the plot which made for a really enjoyable horror novel I wonder how fans will enjoy this story and how they would categorize this book I would say this is of a horror novel than a thriller but it really is in a league of it's own Gretchen will be out July 23 and I want to thank Shannon Kirk for providing me an advanced copy in exchange for a review I can't wait to see what you all think of it and I can't wait for you to meet Gretchen
