How far are you willing to go for Mister Tender?

At fourteen, Alice Hill was viciously attacked by two of her classmates and left to die. The teens claim she was a sacrifice for a man called Mister Tender, but that could never be true: Mister Tender doesn’t exist. His sinister character is pop-culture fiction, created by Alice’s own father in a series of popular graphic novels.

Over a decade later, Alice has changed her name and is trying to heal. But someone is watching her. They know more about Alice than any stranger could: her scars, her fears, and the secrets she keeps locked away. She can try to escape her past, but Mister Tender is never far behind. He will come with a smile that seduces, and a dark whisper in her ear…

Inspired by a true story, this gripping thriller plunges you into a world of haunting memories and unseen threats, leaving you guessing until the harrowing end.

Mister Tender’s Girl by Carter Wilson Book Review

Where to start? Mister Tender’s Girl is such a crazy & unique horror/thriller story. I didn’t know much about the Slender Man story from a few years ago, although I remember it vaguely.  Carter Wilson’s character, Mister Tender, like the Slender man, is fictional.  But, for some, he’s as real as you and I. Obsessed over; a celebrity if you will.  That obsession leads to Alice’s attempted murder. 

After the attack on Alice, the daughter of Mister Tender’s creator, her mother rips her and her brother away to the US, far from London and Alice’s father.  Fourteen years later Alice receives an unfinished Mister Tender book postmarked from London. But who sent it? Alice’s father has passed away; no one had access to any of her fathers work…  this is where the story begins to really creep up your spine. When Alice discovers there’s an entire online community dedicated to her, she knows she’s being followed somehow by someone.  


Carter Wilson writes a terrifying plot, full of twists and an ending I promise you will never see coming.  Do not miss this one!! ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
