Be Buried in the Rain by Barbara Michaels

Be Buried in the Rain has been on my TBR list for awhile now as it was mentioned in one of the Yahoo groups I'm in and sounded good so I knew I wanted to read it. I was in the mood for a gothic thriller and this didn't disappoint. Be Buried in the Rain begins with Julie returning to Maidenwood, the place where she spent a few years growing up, to take care of her aunt Martha. Unfortunately, Maidenwood holds nothing but bad memories for Julie and she has very few good feelings toward Martha who terrorized her as a child. Bones of a woman and child have recently been found and thought connected to Maidenwood and before Julie knows it things begin to take omnious turns.
I loved the way that the author was able to create a creepy, atmospheric novel that drew me into the story. The author kept me guessing until the end especially in regards to Martha. Great read, and I'm glad that I am finally able to cross it off my TBR list.
My Rating: 4 out of 5

  2. I have this in my TBR stack too...looks like I am going to have to dig it out and read it!! Great review.

  3. Kara- It was a good read. Have you read any books by this author? I'm definitely going to check out what else she has written :)

  4. Ohhh, when I was younger I loved Barbara Michaels and read all her books. Glad you enjoyed it!
