There are many unknown things in the world and many dark hidden secrets. But what if you were unwittingly right in the middle of the spider's web? What if everything you know is a lie? Nina Riley has not had the best life. Orphaned at a young age, she grew up without anyone. Now she is an avid researcher of serial killers. She wants to learn everything she can about them; they fascinate her. Especially one that is closer to home, a serial killer named Hunter. Is Nina’s fascination safe or will it put her in danger? The more she learns, the less she knows, and when things start to happen in her quaint little hometown of Abbey Glen, will she find out the truth or will more and more secrets be buried within the Red Abbey? Find out in a fascinating story, Red Abbey by Linda Guyan, that will keep you on your toes.
Red Abbey was an awesome read. It is everything you would want in a mystery novel that will keep you on the edge of your seat with the suspense. Though a little hard to get into at the beginning with some confusing timeline jumps, it is definitely worth it to continue reading. The characters are well developed and do not leave much to be desired when it comes to the unknown, at least once you have finished reading. Until then, do you really know the characters? Or do you just think you do? As for the plot and flow of the story, once you realize that it jumps between time periods in the beginning, it gets much better and easier to read. I loved Red Abbey and was caught off guard by the ending as well. Overall, I really enjoyed reading this book and am looking forward to more by Linda Guyan as she really knows how to write a good mystery!
