Dixie Wheeler was just a baby when she received the nickname "Baby Blue". It was the song blaring from the radio when her father slaughtered her mother and brothers. Two decades later she is looking for a home to share with her boyfriend when she discovers her childhood home (aka the scene of the crime) is for sale and goes "just to look". She decides in order to truly understand what happened all those years ago that she must buy the home and discover its secret. The more time she spends there the crazier she believes she goes. Every time she blacks out, it seems someone else dies. Is she the one committing murder or is her father's ghost forcing her to?
I picked up this book because it was all over social media and was getting fantastic reviews. I was definitely not expecting what I read. This was a very descriptive, violent, and gory book but yet the story is told in such a pleasant manner that you can't help but enjoy it. I would have given it a full five stars but I figured out the ending in the middle of the book although I did not figure out how the ending went down so that says something. This was fantastic for a debut novel and I will gladly read more of Vandelly's work.
