TGIF! We hope y’all survived the polar vortex on the couch under a blanket with a good book and steaming mug of cocoa. (No? There's your weekend plan. You’re welcome.)
Today we've got a great ghost story with two early starred reviews and love from readers: I REMEMBER YOU by Yrsa Sigurdardottir.
Partly based on a true story, this supernatural thriller weaves together two separate tales–a young doctor investigating the suicide of an elderly woman who was obsessed with the doctor's vanished son and three friends who are disturbed by a presence while renovating a rundown house in an isolated village–into an unforgettable read.
"In a departure from her series featuring lawyer Thora Gudmundsdottir, Iceland’s queen of suspense combines modern crime detection with mysticism to chilling effect. Sigurdardottir skillfully builds the early ominous warnings...as the unexplained becomes terrifying. Nordic mystery writers can raise goosebumps as few others can, and Sigurdardottir shows she’s one of the best." – Booklist, starred review
"Sigurdardottir has written an excellent and seriously scary mystery with tangible and supernatural elements that will appeal to fans of John Ajvide Lindqvist (LET THE RIGHT ONE IN)." – Library Journal, starred review
