Book: Ugly Young Thing
Series: Grand Trepass #2
Author: Jennifer Jaynes
Sixteen-year-old Allie has already experienced a lifetime of horror, having lost her mother and serial killer brother to mental illness.
Returning to her childhood home in Louisiana, Allie ends up in foster care and is placed with Miss Bitty, an eccentric but kindly older woman who shows her a new direction and brighter future.
But Allie's new life takes a devastating turn when young women in the area start turning up dead, and she discovers someone lurking outside her bedroom. As Miss Bitty grows inexplicably distant, Allie begins to wonder if death has found her yet again...or if it never really left her at all. -Goodreads
Review: Wow-Jennifer Jaynes is now an author on my 'to read' list. This was a strong follow-up to 'Never Smile at Strangers.' While Allie can be quite annoying at times, this was once again a fast paced, thriller that had me on my toes. I figured out only part of the mystery and I was seriously surprised at the very end. Can't wait for the next one to come out!
