An isolated mansion. A chillingly charismatic aristocrat. And a brave socialite drawn to expose their treacherous secrets. . . . From the author of Gods of Jade and Shadow comes a terrifying twist on classic gothic horror (Kirkus Reviews) set in glamorous 1950s Mexico.

After receiving a frantic letter from her newly-wed cousin begging for someone to save her from a mysterious doom, Noem Taboada heads to High Place, a distant house in the Mexican countryside. Shes not sure what she will findher cousins husband, a handsome Englishman, is a stranger, and Noem knows little about the region.   
 
Noem is also an unlikely rescuer: Shes a glamorous debutante, and her chic gowns and perfect red lipstick are more suited for cocktail parties than amateur sleuthing. But shes also tough and smart, with an indomitable will, and she is not afraid: Not of her cousins new husband, who is both menacing and alluring; not of his father, the ancient patriarch who seems to be fascinated by Noem; and not even of the house itself, which begins to invade Noemis dreams with visions of blood and doom.
 
Her only ally in this inhospitable abode is the familys youngest son. Shy and gentle, he seems to want to help Noem, but might also be hiding dark knowledge of his familys past. For there are many secrets behind the walls of High Place. The familys once colossal wealth and faded mining empire kept them from prying eyes, but as Noem digs deeper she unearths stories of violence and madness. 
 
And Noem, mesmerized by the terrifying yet seductive world of High Place, may soon find it impossible to ever leave this enigmatic house behind.
Its as if a supernatural power compels us to turn the pages of the gripping Mexican Gothic.The Washington Post
Mexican Gothic is the perfect summer horror read, and marks Moreno-Garcia with her hypnotic and engaging prose as one of the genres most exciting talents.Nerdist
A period thriller as rich in suspense as it is in lush 50s atmosphere.Entertainment Weekly

This book is creepy! An atmosphere of decay surrounds High Place... Noemi, a socialite, is sent there to find out why her cousin has written disturbing letters after marrying Virgil and moving there. She discovers that the Doyle's are not your average " dysfunctional" family! ( )

I did not know anything about this book when I began to read it. I did not even bother with browsing the flap because a dear friend gifted it to me and I trust her, always.
I do love gothic fiction. A frantic missive, a gloomy manse where a loved one languishes in bed… bring it on. I remember texting my friend “I'm ready for the mad fire-starting wife to come down from the attic!” The book certainly delivered on the classic atmospheric dread, half-waking nightmare of a plot, leaving you questioning what was happening here?? I love that. I was not expecting what came next but I was good with it. What a satisfyingly creepy tale that I still drift back to from time to time.
If I had one complaint, and it's very small, is that I spent the whole time thinking this isn't very Mexican. Sure, we mentioned a Mexican city, a Mexican family name, but really it could have taken place in any of the English highlands, like it's Gothic sisters. ( )

“Mexican Gothic” is a little slow going for the first part but then quickly descends into a fungi-infested hellscape of Gothic horror that became darkly fun to read! It felt like watching one of those old school black & white horror movies yet more nuanced, more willing to look at not just monster horrors but also the horrors of colonialism, racism, and the gaslighting of women. I think it IS fairly predictable to figure out what’s happening, and some plot points are a little too convenient, but it’s also heavy on the creepy factor so it made a great autumn read. :) ( )

Gothic scenery, sassy main character, and a sinister conundrum she must solve to ensure the care of her dear cousin. Not knowing if her cousin is simply decaying from TB or is slowly losing her mind, she feels she's just not the cousin she grew up loving. Open your eyes...
There may be something wrong with the people in the manor, she must leave and investigate aids for what ails her dear cousin. Open your eyes...
The tincture her dear cousin asked for made her violently ill. She's such a strong willed woman, or is she just a spoiled child. Open your eyes...
Neomi begins to sleepwalk and grow feelings for her cousin's husband?! No! It was a dream, wasn't it? What's going on? As reality shifts and a gloom settles over, things begin to reveal themselves. Open your eyes... ( )

When I was a teenager I discovered gothic romance. I read everything written by Phyllis Whitney and Mary Stuart. I thought that this book would be something like those. However, it veers further into the horror genre. Sone of the things in this book were disturbing and outside my comfort zone. I still gave it four stars because my not liking it too much doesn't make it a bad book. It's definitely not something that I will reread though. ( )
