Don't spread the word!
Three-day weekend. Party at White Rock House on Henry Island.
You do NOT want to miss it.

It was supposed to be the weekend of their lives—an exclusive house party on Henry Island. Best friends Meg and Minnie each have their reasons for being there (which involve T.J., the school’s most eligible bachelor) and look forward to three glorious days of boys, booze and fun-filled luxury.

But what they expect is definitely not what they get, and what starts out as fun turns dark and twisted after the discovery of a DVD with a sinister message: Vengeance is mine.

Suddenly people are dying, and with a storm raging, the teens are cut off from the outside world. No electricity, no phones, no internet, and a ferry that isn’t scheduled to return for two days. As the deaths become more violent and the teens turn on each other, can Meg find the killer before more people die? Or is the killer closer to her than she could ever imagine?

My Review:

Review originally posted on Goodreads.

I didn't expect a mystery / horror novel will put me out of the reading slump. The summary is intriguing but I wasn't that sure if I'm going to love it or not because mystery/thriller/horror books aren't really my type of genre. I started this one last night and it totally gave me goose bumps. It is fast-paced, intriguing, creepy and it made me nervous. I just couldn't put this book down. 

Ten teens. Three Days. One Killer.

A house party on a secluded island wherein teens should have been having a blast turned out to be their worst nightmare or I should say their final destination. It scared the heck out of me and I couldn't sleep because the setting is definitely creepy. These teens have no way out because they have no source of communication and electricity. Plus, it's storming and each of them starts to die. Everyone thinks its an accident or probably suicide but Meg isn't convinced with this whole mess. One of them is the murderer/suspect and she's about to figure it out.

I made my guesses of who the killer is. This suspect gets really tricky and suspicious. I really enjoyed how Gretchen McNeil put the twists and guessing though I wasn't 100% sure I got my guesses right. When I get to the last part.. I was like: Well played scheme, Killer! Unfortunately, my guess is wrong. Bleh. It's indeed a fun mystery, chilling read. If you're looking for a light mystery novel and will give you goose bumps, try this one.
