Hotel Lilith holds terrible memories for Cait Du Bois.
The darkest night of her life happened within its walls.
Once, she vowed never to return to the place that reminds her of the horror she experienced. But when the hotel is chosen as the location for her high school reunion, Cait finds herself unable to resist the appeal of showing off her new life to the people who once made her existence miserable.
Cait is no stranger to being noticed in public, especially as a bestselling author with an enthusiastic fan base, but back at Hotel Lilith, she was once recognized for a completely different reason. With all eyes on her as she returns to the town she’s spent years running from, Cait finds it increasingly difficult to discern between her fans and foes.
Haunted by the memory of a night that torments her, she resolves to put the past behind her and move on.
No one knows the truth about what happened back then.
At least, that’s what she’s always believed.
Shortly after her arrival, strange things begin to occur. A mysterious package, strange calls, and frightening text messages seem to be just the beginning of the nightmare about to unfold.
Someone is determined to bring the truth to light. If they succeed, the life Cait has built based on secrets could come crashing down around her. And, if they want her to pay for what she’s done, her lies may be the least of her concerns.
Someone’s out for blood.
Cait, Jamie, Sam… High school bff’s. Also, not part of The Populars. One day while the girls are trying on outfits they make a pact to get their first kiss that year. Jamie reveals that she wants her first kiss to be from Grant 🙄 (ugh… one of The Populars). How could she possibly want a kiss from him? He was part of the mean kid group who enjoyed torturing them whenever possible! But… it all changes the day Grant asks Jamie out. No one believed it! Is this some kind of trick? A prank? Vanessa and girls from The Populars were definitely planning something cruel. Sam and Cait grew suspicious. Pfff… this won’t last.
Until… it does. Jamie… part of The Populars? Has she lost her mind? As she drifts away from Sam and Cait to “fit in” with The Populars, the friend dynamic changes… along with everything else. What happens next was unexpected and cause for more suspicion.
Wait… now Grant falls for Cait? Aren’t Sam and Cait dating? Jamie, wants back in the friend group with Sam and Cait? Typical. What the heck is happening in this twisted love triangle? Well no need to worry about Jamie anymore. She’s out of the picture. Hmmmm…
SO, Cait heads back to hotel Lilith to face the past once and for all. I mean, what can go wrong?
Why should I feel worried, after all? I was not who I was back then. Not anymore. I’d clawed my way to happiness. Acceptance.
She is a successful author, ended up with the handsome guy Grant, they had twins together and they lived happily ever after right???? Record scratch… Reality check!!!!
What Cait doesn’t realize is that her past is going to face her head on! ahhhh…. This is one reunion you don’t want to miss!
We need to go back to my room. There’s…Sam, there’s something I need to tell you about that night. Something I’ve never told anyone.
Told from Cait’s POV alternating time periods from past to present, readers will be at the edge of their seats!
Around me was a magnificent party. Inside me, a storm.
Having read many many many of Kiersten Modglin books, I feel confident in saying that yet again, she hit this one out of the park! Although at times I said, “this seems too predictable”, I kept saying that Kiersten “don’t play like that”. So I knew something big was going to happen! I was definitely surprised at the end. She always has a way of unraveling a plot. Very satisfying!
