When Hannah Maloney’s aunt dies in a car accident, she returns to her family’s castle in the Catskills and the epicenter of a childhood trauma: her sister’s unsolved disappearance. It’s been seventeen years, and though desperate to start a new life with her fiancé, Hannah is compelled to question the events of her last summer at Brackenhill.

When a human bone is found near the estate, Hannah is convinced it belongs to her long-lost sister. She launches her own investigation into that magical summer that ended in a nightmare. As strange happenings plague the castle, Hannah uncovers disturbing details about the past and startling realizations about her own repressed childhood memories.

Fueled by guilt over her sister’s vanishing, Hannah becomes obsessed with discovering what happened all those years ago, but by the time Hannah realizes some mysteries are best left buried, it’s too late to stop digging.

    ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️💫 4.5

    When Hannah and her older sister Julia were kids, their mother sent them to stay with their aunt Fae for the summer. Fae lived in a castle called Brackenhill deep in the Catskills with her husband Stuart.
    The castle immediately became a magical sanctuary to Hannah, who was grateful to be away from her uncaring mother and horrible stepfather. Hannah and Julia began spending every summer at the castle and each summer, Hannah grew more enamored with it.

    There are eerie sounds, strange rooms and locked doors in the castle, but Hannah feels at home there.

    The townspeople have told stories of the castle for generations. Legends say the castle is haunted and that all of the women who have lived in it have gone missing or have descended into madness.

    Their last summer at Brackenhill, Julia disappears. Hannah goes home to her mother and doesn’t return or speak to Fae for 17 years.

    Until one night, Hannah receives a phone call telling her that her aunt Fae has just died in a car accident. Hannah must return to Brackenhill.

    Not long after she arrives at the castle, her dog finds a human bone in the yard. Hannah immediately believes the bone belongs to her sister and becomes consumed with the mystery surrounding Julia’s disappearance.

    I loved this book! It’s a creepy, gothic mystery.
