READ ¸ E-book, or Kindle E-pub Í Kate Moretti Kate Moretti Í 9 REVIEW REVIEW Girls of Brackenhill ´ E-book, or Kindle E-pub Author of The Vanishing Year The Blackbird Season and In Her Bones Kate Moretti's THE GIRLS OF BRACKENHILL A newly engaged woman is summoned to her aunt's storybook ma Creepy Castle and Missing Girls35 starsGirls of Brackenhill is a psychological thriller about a mysterious gothic castle in the Catskills where girls go missing without a trace 13 years ago Hannah s sister Julia went missing from Brackehill Castle Hannah returns to the creepy castle where strange things happen to bury her aunt While there she begins to investigate what really happened to Julia and in the process puts herself in dangerBrackenhilll Castle plays a central role in this book There are strange noises creepy basement rooms and other weird happenings that occur on the grounds While the setting is intriguing and sounds creepy I feel like Morretti doesn t play around with the creep factor enough I wanted description of the strange happenings and creepy rooms Some of this exists but the atmosphere could have been amped up another level if time was spent examining the castle especially the myths surrounding it The reader experiences Brackenhill through the eyes of Hannah who narrates almost the entire novel Chapters switch back and forth between then and now but do not alternate ie there might be several now chapters in a row In the end I realized that Hannah was a dynamic character than I initially believed At the same time her character both annoyed and frustrated me She comes off as self righteous as she constantly uestions other s behavior but participates in uestionable behavior herself Her tone at times is whiny and childish which was fine in the then chapters when she was 15 but not in the current moment when she is supposed to be 28 years old The plot is familiar sister goes missing another sister investigates and in the process digs up buried family secrets and so on But the setting of the castle adds a uniue layer to this plot I found the pacing a bit slow but others found it to be fast paced so this might just be meI sat on writing this review for a bit because I am torn about how I feel On the one hand this Girls of Brackenhill offers a lot a uniue atmosphere a dynamic narrator and a captivating mystery On the other hand I struggled with the pacing Hannah s character the structure of the narrative etc This book has so much potential but it could have been strengthened by adding scenes around the castle And WTF was with that ending It was weird especially the final chapter which I found confusing The ending also felt unfinished and I was left with MANY unanswered uestions Overall this was a mixed bag for me It is a decent mysterythriller but it lacks the magic of an amazing one I received an ARC of this book from NetGalley and the publisher in exchange for an honest review
