A unique suspense novel that keeps you guessing!
on March 16, 2014
Regina Pacelli takes us deep “Into the Arms of Madness” with this edge of your seat suspense novel. Well-crafted and finely tuned, this book disturbed me more than once and left me questioning what was really going on.
Bridget and Todd, happy newlyweds, head to a secluded cabin owned and maintained by one of Todd’s friends to enjoy their honeymoon. Everything is perfect, the wedding – while a bit stiff with members of his family, was beautiful. The wedding night superb. This cabin honeymoon should be everything that a honeymoon should be. How could it not be? A freshly stocked refrigerator, fresh flowers in the bedrooms – it is an oasis of perfection for those wishing to embrace their love.
Still flush with the rose of love, Bridget ignores the twinges of unease that pass her way when small, out of place, things are noticed. That flush, that smile can’t hold up when those small things become huge and their honeymoon takes a detour to the truly bizarre – and then out right terrifying.
Fast paced and exciting, Pacelli kept me reading past my bedtime. I really enjoyed “Into the Arms of Madness”- the psychological dissonance of that is real, what might be imagined and a strange sort of familial acceptance is unique and thought provoking.
