PROMISE NOT TO TELL by Jennifer Mcmahon

Another amazing book from the mind of Jennifer Mcmahon...

You will be turning pages so fast and trying to figure out how this book will end...

A mix of thriller, ghost story and mystery all rolled into one...

I never wanted this book to end and was unsure of the ending until the very last page...

AWESOME...Jennifer Mcmahon is now one of my favorite authors!!!




Promise Not to Tell: A Novel





From Booklist

...School nurse Kate Cypher returns to her hometown in Vermont to care for her mother, who is suffering from Alzheimer's. It's not a happy homecoming, since Kate never liked the cultlike atmosphere of the commune she grew up in. Not long after her arrival, a local girl is murdered in the same way Kate's childhood friend, Del, nicknamed the "Potato Girl" by her mean-spirited classmates, was killed 30 years ago. Seriously spooked, Kate reconnects with her childhood sweetheart, who is utterly convinced that Del's ghost is afoot in the woods and intent on seeking revenge. McMahon deftly juggles a complex narrative, which smoothly interweaves the past and the present, while also credibly introducing supernatural elements by presenting them through Kate's skeptical viewpoint. But McMahon's real coup is her touching characterization of the brave and desperate Del. It is through that portrait that McMahon drives home the cruelty of childhood bullying. Joanne Wilkinson
