The Sun Down Motel by Simone St. James

Ghosts are real, this book is creepy as hell & you need to read it ASAP. That’s the review.

Read The Sun Down Motel by Simone St James if you’re into crime novels or you grew up watching Are You Afraid of the Dark? The Broken Girls is one of my favorite reads because it’s thrilling, memorable & creepy. Simone St. James writes a fantastic, binge-worthy thriller & it gets all the stars from me.
