Summary from Goodreads: "Donna Weaver has put everything into The Breakers, a Bed and Breakfast that she and her mother are opening on a remote stretch of beach. Now it waits - freshly painted, richly furnished, filled with flowers. But as the guests arrive, they feel like they've been here before. Amid home-baked scones, gorgeous guest rooms, and lavish dinners fit for a king, the feeling of menace grows. Someone has broken their vow. Someone is playing games. And then the games turn deadly... " My Thoughts: Go To My Grave was a dark and compelling thriller that left me wondering why I hadn't read anything by this author until now. One of the things that made me want to read this one right away was I saw a review somewhere that compared this book to the game of Clue. I loved that game as a kid so I was instantly intrigued. I can't say that I agree with the comparison but I still really enjoyed this book. This was one of those whodunnits that kept you guessing from the very beginning. And there was this sense of foreboding that was present throughout the book which I just adored for the most part. I'm not going to lie - there were times where I almost wanted to stop reading this book because of that feeling. Because you just knew that bad things were going to happen and I wasn't sure I could handle reading them. I feel like there are some serious trigger warnings here so readers be warned. This book is dark and not always easy to read because of it. (If you want specific trigger warnings just let me know). The book is told in two storylines: the present day and then what happened many years ago. The author beautifully ties these two storylines together and in such a way that I just did not see it coming. I found myself unable to stop reading as I just needed to see how it would all turn out. I'm going to admit that I was strongly satisfied with the ending as it just fit perfectly in my opinion. Overall, I enjoyed my time reading this book immensely which feels a bit wrong to say as it was so unexpectedly dark. I don't want to harp on that too much but I just feel like it is important for readers to be aware and understand what they are getting. I spent my entire time guessing with this book and was nowhere close! This was one of those books where the author brilliantly has you guessing and wondering just trying to figure it all out. I never knew what to expect and loved every minute of it! I'm so excited that I have many more books by this author to catch up on. Question though - are all of her books on the darker side or just this one? Not that it matters but I was just curious on what to expect. I would recommend this book to fans of mysteries and thrillers. Bottom line: A dark but very compelling read! Disclosure: I received a copy of this book thanks to NetGalley and the publisher. Thoughts are my own.

I keep a list of authors that I routinely check on just to see if the have new books coming out. Catriona McPherson is on that list. I've read several of her books with mixed emotions, as a few I've loved and a few I've only liked. This, unfortunately, was only liked. I loved the old manor house setting, which the main character has turned into a bed and breakfast with the help of her mother. It's very remote and bleak, which lends a Gothic feeling to the book. I've heard other reviewers likened it to Clue, and in a way it did have that feeling. However, there were far too many characters, most of which were unlikable. The main character was good, but often times her ineptitude grated on my nerves. The mystery was unique with lots of twists and turns, but the ending was quite unbelievable. Overall, it was a good atmospheric suspense novel that I liked reading but not enough to put it on my favorites list.

Atmospheric, menacing, and twisty! Go To My Grave is an ominous, character-driven thriller that delves into the complex dynamics between friends and family and highlights just how parasitic some of those relationships can truly be. The prose is gritty and taut. The characters are deceptive, plagued, and self-involved. And the plot using a back-and-forth, past/present style does a nice job of building tension as it unfolds a tortuous tale of friendship, lies, secrets, manipulation, jealousy, obsession, revenge, violence, and murder. There is no doubt that McPherson can weave a suspicious tale that’s dark, gloomy, and tragic and highlights the scheming, selfish, dark side of human nature. And even though I thought the storyline itself was quite clever, unfortunately for me the lack of characters with any sort of moral or ethical conscience in Go To My Grave made it a little hard to like, connect, or even want to root for any of them.

When her B&B is rented for a weekend Donna is very excited. She’s worked so hard to get the old place in shape. Now its ready for the first guests. The guests who arrive are related by marriage or blood and don’t seem overly fond of each other or the guests of honor – a sibling and his wife celebrating a special anniversary. As soon as the house is full odd things begin to happen. The reactions of everyone involved could be deemed telling – to someone who knows what’s going on. At times I was reminded of an Agatha Christie mystery. There’s the beautiful Inn, loosely related guests, and things that disappear or appear at unexpected times. But then something big happens and the smaller incidents don’t seem that minor anymore. I found the reveal interesting but, honestly, I almost gave up on this book a couple of times. Most of the characters were self-involved boors who acted horribly at one time or another, if not most of the time. The novel is mostly set in the present time but occasionally moves to the early 90s – one night in particular when unspeakable things happened. This group thought they’d go to their graves with the secrets from that night. But will they? For me it was an okay read but fans of this style of mystery might have a different opinion.
