Beware the Woman
by Megan Abbott
Megan Abbott, the queen of creepy stories, is back with another nailbiter. This time she delivers a modern-day gothic tale reminiscent of Rebecca and Rose- Mary’s Baby. Recently married and expecting their first child, Jacy and Jed travel to visit his father at his remote cabin in Michigan’s Upper Peninsula. The idyllic setting seems like the perfect respite—until Jacy has a health scare and things quickly turn strange. Why has her husband’s behavior dramatically changed since they arrived at his childhood home? And why is the stern housekeeper, Mrs. Brandt, coming and going at all hours of the night? Get your night light ready because all is definitely not what it seems in this spine-chilling tale.
