My Thoughts on The After-Death of Caroline Rand
Suddenly getting laid off and unsure what to do, Alli receives a message from an old school friend, inviting Allie to her friends’ estate for a weekend. The weekend promises to be an exciting one as it will be 60’s themed, an era that Alli has a soft spot for.
Without any reason not to go, Alli heads to the Canonbury Manor, curious to learn what her childhood friend had been up to in the last decade. But once arriving at the manor, strange things begin to happen, getting more and more intense as the weekend goes on.
My gosh. I became invested in our main character, Alli, immediately! Throughout the story, I equally wanted her to leave the house but also stay in order to get answers.
This is such an atmospheric and tense story that will keep you totally captivated. The twisted maze of mystery here was so much fun to discover. With each sharp turn and each dip back into the past, I got more and more nervous to see what this was all building up to.
And let me just say, that ending did not disappoint!
My Favorite Passages on The After-Death of Caroline Rand

He didn’t seem to be moving of his own volition. He proceeded with awkward, jerky steps as if someone was placing one of his feet in front of the other.
Alli went on a tour of the house, searching every room, but found no one. There was no on else there. No one living at any rate. The house was empty. Or as empty as this house could ever be.
