About the Book
Book: The Inn on Hanging Hill
Author: Christy Barritt
Genre: Romantic Mystery
Release date: October, 2021
Each house has a history. Each person has a secret. Each turn of events leads to danger.
Lindsey Waters never wanted to return to the seaside inn where she grew up. Too many traumatic memories haunt the place, both from her childhood and from days gone by. But with guilt relentlessly chasing her after a tragic choice, she’s desperate for a fresh start.
Mysterious incidents begin plaguing the inn—dangerous incidents—that make it clear someone wants to scare Lindsey away. But why? Does it have anything to do with the two weeks missing from her memory when she was abducted at age twelve?
Childhood friend Benjamin Newsom seems like an answer to prayer when he shows up to work as a handyman. But something is different about him, something Lindsey can’t put her finger on. She’s certain Benjamin harbors secrets.
As peril continues to close in, Lindsey must decide if she wants to face her past or run. She doesn’t know whom she can trust, and whatever choices she makes will determine if she lives or if she becomes part of the inn’s tragic legacy.

More from Christy
I’ve always loved old houses—ones you can look at and see that they were once full of life and love. But, through the years something happened, and these places now stand in neglect. Based off that idea, I developed the Beach House Mystery Series. Each book is a standalone—the series is connected only by theme—and features a different beach house on a different beach.
The Inn on Hanging Hill was inspired by my time on Virginia’s Eastern Shore. The area was once thriving and one of the wealthiest in the country. But the railroad changed, and that left the area isolated and without enough work to support the population. It also left it with tons of history—and stories that go along with that history.
I hope you enjoy Lindsey’s story!
The Inn on Hanging Hill is written by Christy Barritt. She is one of my go to suspense authors. This book is part of the Beach House Mystery series. This is book two. I have not read book one - and I did not have any issues following along. Lindsey Waters has lived through some traumatic experiences and does not want to return to her seaside inn where she grew up. The book opens with a prologue and you find out what causes the trauma. Lindsey has returned to restore the Inn. Her childhood friend Ben shows up and she hires him to assist in the renovations. The author threw so much action, suspense and twists and turns into the story I sat and had my hand over my mouth while I was reading. This book is spookier then some of her previous books that I read, however I really enjoyed it.
Well written characters, suspenseful storyline, lots of twists and turns. I received a copy of this book through Celebrate Lit Blogging Program - all thoughts are my own
