Overview

Novella (39k words) Psychological horror / suspense - Beacon Hill Chronicles: Volume 2 Growing up in her grandparent's apartment in Boston's Theater District, Vivienne Lang spent much of her childhood in the Beacon Hill townhouse of her best friend, Mattie Thorndike. Then Vivienne's life was uprooted and, by the time she returned to Boston, she was deeply changed. Now, she spends her time taking care of her grandfather and studying martial arts - a lonely and reclusive woman - until she reads a newspaper article about a body buried in the garden of Mattie's home. She and Mattie reconnect but within days of their reunion the realtor showing the townhouse is found in the servants' stairwell with a broken neck. Then the old housekeeper, Nell, is found floating, face down, in the ocean. As more bodies turn up, Vivienne becomes deeply involved in inexplicable circumstances including meeting a handsome, sexy ex-cop named Joe Quinn, and a strange, yarn shop-owner who calls herself Madame Defarge. And she suspects that someone is stalking Mattie. (Volume 1 is The Crazy Old Lady in the Attic. Volume 3, The Crazy Old Lady Unleashed, is coming Summer 2013)

Better than the first one, which is hard to do.  Kathleen never disappoints.   The Crazy Old Lady's Revenge is the second story in Kathleen Valentine's Crazy Old Lady series. Like the first story, The Crazy Old Lady in the Attic, this story is a first rate psychological thriller. In fact, I liked the story line for this one a little more than the first. The story line here was more complex than the first one and I really had to pay attention. I loved the way that Kathleen dropped clues throughout the story. I was constantly guessing at where the story was leading, and constantly changing my mind, too. Along with the great story that Kathleen weaves in this story, was a great cast of complex characters, some of whom are not what they seem at first.  I can't wait until the next story of this series comes out, but luckily, I have several other stories and novels of Kathleen's to read while I wait. I have been a huge fan of Kathleen Valentine since I read The Old Mermaid's Tale and another of her short stories, Ghosts of a Beach Town in Winter. So far everything that I have read by this author has been excellent, she is all that is wonderful about Indie authors.
