Fairies and Fear. Do You Want to Meet the Fairy King?

Virtual Book Club Patchogue/Sayville Community:: Book Review:: 2012 - Don't Breathe A Word A Novel By Jennifer McMahon.

SCARED :: Couldn't look under the bed!

Yup that is what I told everyone I was when I was reading this book. I am the one to watch FRIENDS all night, give me a Joey line and I am laughing on the couch. Give me a scene from Hannibal or SCREAM or THE SHINING and you might not see my face as it is covered possibly with a blanket or hands covering my eyes peeking through the fingers and every light on in the house.

All closet doors shut and no looking under my bed at night. 

So picking up this book and not putting it down I thought would be a challenge but it was not too difficult because Jennifer McMahon made me want more I had to figure out who was the Fairy King. What were all of these clues being dropped, wrong names, weird license plates, the friends from the past, how did they all tie together?? What happened to that town? Where is this girl? 

Did I expect the ending? Kind of, but not the last page. Do I believe in Fairies? NAH but just maybe I do believe in that shadow. 

Ms. McMahon is a talented writer. Pick up the book and let me know if you believe in Fairies.

Much love, Jennifer

About the book (Amazon) 

One summer night in Vermont, 12-year-old Lisa went into the woods behind her house and never came out again. Before she disappeared, she told her little brother Sam about a door that led to a magical place where she would meet the King of the Fairies and become his queen. 

Fifteen years later, Phoebe is in love with Sam , a practical, sensible man who doesn’t fear the dark and doesn’t have bad dreams—who, in fact, helps Phoebe ignore her own. But suddenly they are faced with a series of eerie, unexplained occurrences that challenge Sam’s hard-headed, realistic view of the world. As they question their reality, a terrible promise Sam made years ago is revealed and could destroy them all.
