Stay Tonight. Stay Forever.
When Audrey Casella arrives for an unplanned stay at the grand Hotel Ruby, she’s grateful for the detour. Just months after their mother’s death, Audrey and her brother, Daniel, are on their way to live with their grandmother, dumped on the doorstep of a DNA-matched stranger because their father is drowning in his grief.
Audrey and her family only plan to stay the night, but life in the Ruby can be intoxicating, extending their stay as it provides endless distractions—including handsome guest Elias Lange, who sends Audrey’s pulse racing. However, the hotel proves to be as strange as it is beautiful. Nightly fancy affairs in the ballroom are invitation only, and Audrey seems to be the one guest who doesn't have an invite. Instead, she joins the hotel staff on the rooftop, catching whispers about the hotel’s dark past.
The more Audrey learns about the new people she's met, the more her curiosity grows. She’s torn in different directions—the pull of her past with its overwhelming loss, the promise of a future that holds little joy, and an in-between life in a place that is so much more than it seems…
Welcome to the Ruby.
*I received an eARC from the publisher in exchange for an honest review*
This cover and the uber creepy Hotel California vibe the summary has going on are what initially drew me to the book. That, and the fact that Suzanne Young wrote it. She's on my short list of,"I will read whatever this author writes."
Haunting, beautiful, and creeptastic. Hotel Ruby is the perfect horror read, especially for those who don't normally read horror or like gory things. *points to self*
The characters, the setting, the plot, and of course the twists, I loved it all. And that ending...
