Eerie ghost story meets 90s nostalgia in MURDER ROAD, the latest gripping paranormal thriller from Simone St. James. I loved everything about it, and if you're new to her spooky books, I wouldn't hesitate to recommend starting with this one.

It's summer 1995, and a young honeymooning couple gets entangled in a paranormal murder mystery when they pick up a doomed hitchhiker along a deserted Michigan road. While police keep them in town for questioning, April and Eddie discover that road is known for a string of unsolved murders going back to the 1970s, and also the local legend of the Lost Girl. With some time to kill and a desire to clear their own names, they investigate the history of this haunted road on their own.

I enjoyed the complex mystery in this one, and the supernatural elements blended in perfectly for many chilling moments. The characters are what I loved most about this book. April was flawed from the emotional baggage of her past, yet so brave and clever in their current precarious situation. And then there's Eddie — be still my heart. Even the secondary cast was well-rounded and compelling.

I've read MURDER ROAD twice because it is addictive, and I wanted to experience the creepy goodness again. The ominous atmosphere, the dark supernatural, the genuine characters, and the 90s make this an unputdownable read.

Thank you to the publisher and NetGalley for the digital ARC. Opinions are my own.

I loved this book.! It's not my usual read, but it captured my interest from the beginning and held it all the way to the end. It was a good mix of mystery and ghost story. This was my first book from this author, but I will look for more.
