The Roanoke Girls by Amy Engel

The Roanoke Girls, by By Amy Engel

" If you love suspenseful stories with a strong sense of place and more than a bit of southern-gothic drama, you'll like Engel's dark family saga as much as I did.  The young women of Kansas' Roanoke family seem to have it all - beauty, money, doting parents/grandparents, and no shortage of admirers.  So why do they all end up either running away or dying tragically young? And what happens when one of them returns to her ancestral house after a 10-year absence? This is a wild ride that's not for the faint of heart, but really hard to put down." -Recommended by Erika
