Andrew, the manager of Shanamore Holiday Cottages, watches his only guest via a hidden camera in her room. One night the unthinkable happens: a shadowy figure emerges onscreen, kills her and destroys the camera. But who is the murderer? How did they know about the camera? And how will Andrew live with himself?
Natalie wishes she'd stayed at home as soon as she arrives in the wintry isolation of Shanamore. There's something creepy about the manager. She wants to leave, but she can't - not until she's found what she's looking for...
Psycho meets Fatal Attraction in this explosive story about a murder caught on camera. You've already missed the start. To get the full picture you must rewind the tape and play it through to the end, no matter how shocking...
Rewind by Catherine Ryan Howard is just one of those books that captures your attention right from the start. What better way to start a story than with a murder and a rather brutal one at that! Makes me never want to stay at a creepy cottage all by myself that’s for sure! Being billed as a cross between Psycho and Fatal Attraction, really sets the tone of this book as I got the impression it was going to be seriously creepy and it is! Rewind is gritty and utterly addictive.
The story is told in a set of segments moving forward in time and back in time almost like the rewinding and fast forwarding of a movie. I really loved how the story is written and how it gives me glimpses of the past without telling the entire story as it fast forwards back into the present. I have to say it kept me on the edge of my seat the entire time and kept me flipping the pages well into the evening because I needed the entire picture laid out right in front of me. Catherine Ryan Howard really hits home with the suspense and psychological aspect to the storyline that left me intrigued and kind of a bit frightened at the same time.
If you love an edge of your seat psychological thriller that is both creepy, intense and filled with many twists and turns then you will definitely want to pick up a copy of Rewind. I thoroughly enjoyed this one and it is a definite five star read for me.
