As Halloween approaches, I love me some books (and movies) that take place in creepy, haunted gothic mansions and Mexican Gothic does not disappoint. Noemi Taboada, a glamorous, smart, and strong-willed debutante receives a letter of distress from her cousin who is ailing and possibly being held captive by her husband and his family in the distant manor house of High Place in the Mexican countryside. Noemi, determined to rescue her cousin, goes to the mansion to investigate and learns that there are dark secrets lurking within the family living in High Place and, indeed, lurking within the walls of the mansion itself. Will Noemi overcome these dark forces before they begin to take hold of her?
This book is appropriate for adults.
