Title: The Henderson Harbor Killings: Summer Shack 2
Author: Kelli Landon
Publication Date: August 21, 2014
My Rating:4/5 stars ( B)
Revenge doesn’t come with an expiration date.
Before Summer Shack (A Killer Vacation), Cynthia Barnett was a classmate and neighbor of Burt Whitehead’s.
Graduating from Birchville High in 2000, she was known as the girl who got away. She was frowned upon for hanging with Burt’s bullies, but she held her own against the ridicule they put him through. The story leading up to high school graduation is told through Cynthia’s eyes.
The Whiteheads lead a very different lifestyle. Burt tries to live his own life while dealing with his dominating mother, Vera. Rumors of Vera’s missing husband as well as the child abuse afflicted upon Burt, don’t make life easy for him. While working up at the Henderson Harbor lighthouse, Burt practices his revenge in ways he learned from his mother and another relative. His crimes rock Door County as he takes to the Internet to lure in his victims. Burt Whitehead’s story makes up Part Two of The Henderson Harbor Killings.
I received Summer Shack Prequel from the author Kelli Landon in exchange with an honest review.
You don't have to read Summer Shack: Book 1 to enjoy this. This is a Prequel, not a sequel.
Revenge does not come with an expiration Date.......Intriguing right??
I absolutely loved this; the way the author build up the case of Burt, who was a normal kid and turned into a psychopath is literally amazing.
During this huge transformation, you get to sympathize with Burt and get creeped by him at the same time.
You get to observe his swinging emotions until they are completely destroyed.
So there was a lot of character Building in this book.
However,I kind of did not buy his final switch into a complete killer.There was just too much killing going on.
This is just a minor thing that I did not like; other than that, I really enjoyed Summer Shack 2 with the mystery and the thrilling, and sometimes kind of terrifying, cold events.
I give it 4/5 stars and a B according to my own rating scale.
