Book Review | Violet by Scott Thomas

Violet is a horror novel by Scott Thomas.

Violet by Scott Thomas

For many children, the summer of 1988 was filled with sunshine and laughter. But for ten-year-old Kris Barlow, it was her chance to say goodbye to her dying mother.

Three decades later, loss returns—her husband killed in a car accident. And so, Kris goes home to the place where she first knew pain—to that summer house overlooking the crystal waters of Lost Lake. It’s there that Kris and her eight-year-old daughter will make a stand against grief.

But a shadow has fallen over the quiet lake town of Pacington, Kansas. Beneath its surface, an evil has grown—and inside that home where Kris Barlow last saw her mother, an old friend awaits her return.

I loved reading Violet. The slow burn, character driven horror reminded me of Hunter Shea's Creature. Creature was my favorite novel last year, and Violet will definitely be in my list of favorites this year.

Scott Thomas is now an auto-buy author for me.

I treasure this style of character driven, well written horror so I'm calling Violet a must read.
