GO TO MY GRAVE by Catriona McPherson

My Highly Caffeinated Thought: A dark psychological tale filled with twisted mind-games and suspense.
GO TO MY GRAVE is a slow-burning thriller intertwining the past and the present to give readers a truly haunting story.
In the beginning, I wasn't sure where things were going. There were hints of mischief happening, but I really thought it was going to be novel about the past and present of this group of people coming to The Breakers. However, about halfway through, the psychological suspense was kicked into overdrive. And let me tell you...this is the moment I became completely absorbed.
What captured me the most about this book was the way McPherson masterfully peeled away the layers to this gothic mystery. Each element and moment was so expertly crafted to come together at the end. Things which didn't seem important in the start were brought in to further complicate the story.
This is one of those books which will mess with your head in the best way possible. I cannot wait to read something else by the author.
Reviewer Disclaimer: I received a copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.
From Catriona McPherson, the Agatha-Award winning author of Quiet Neighbors, comes a clever, spine-tingling standalone Gothic thriller.
Donna Weaver has put everything she has into restoring The Breakers, an old bed and breakfast on a remote stretch of beach in Galloway. Now it sits waiting―freshly painted, richly furnished, filled with flowers―for the first guests to arrive.
But Donna's guests, a contentious group of estranged cousins, soon realize that they’ve been here before, years ago. Decades have passed, but that night still haunts them: a sixteenth birthday party that started with peach schnapps and ended with a girl walking into the sea.
Each of them had made a vow of silence: “lock it in a box, stitch my lips, and go to my grave.”
But now someone has broken the pact. Amid the home-baked scones and lavish rooms, someone is playing games, locking boxes, stitching lips. And before the weekend is over, at least one of them will go to their grave.
