The Broken Girls by Simone St. James

About the book:
Vermont, 1950. There's a place for the girls whom no one wants--the troublemakers, the illegitimate, the too smart for their own good. It's called Idlewild Hall. And in the small town where it's located, there are rumors that the boarding school is haunted. Four roommates bond over their whispered fears, their budding friendship blossoming--until one of them mysteriously disappears. . . .

Vermont, 2014. As much as she's tried, journalist Fiona Sheridan cannot stop revisiting the events surrounding her older sister's death. Twenty years ago, her body was found lying in the overgrown fields near the ruins of Idlewild Hall. And though her sister's boyfriend was tried and convicted of murder, Fiona can't shake the suspicion that something was never right about the case.

When Fiona discovers that Idlewild Hall is being restored by an anonymous benefactor, she decides to write a story about it. But a shocking discovery during the renovations will link the loss of her sister to secrets that were meant to stay hidden in the past--and a voice that won't be silenced. . . .

My thoughts:
This is this second book I've read from this author and I must say, I am so impressed by her writing style!  This chilling tale is absolutely gripping from beginning to end.  The Broken Girls is a riveting page-turner that will have you on the edge of your seat.   After reading it, I want to track down everything else Simone St. James has ever's THAT good!  If you are a fan of suspense, you should definitely check out The Broken Girls
