Book description
Every year for a decade, five college friends spent a weekend together at the atmospheric Chateau du Cygne Noir. Then, tragedy struck.

Ten years later, Laurel Muir returns to the castle for the first time since the accident, hoping to reconnect with her friends and lay the past to rest. When a murderer strikes, it rips open old wounds and forces the women to admit there's a killer in their midst. The remaining friends make a pact to unearth the truth, but suspicion, doubt, and old secrets threaten to tear them apart. Unsure who to trust, Laurel puts herself in harm's way, risking it all for friendship and long-delayed justice

My thoughts
This is the first book I have read by this author and it was a good read. I can't imagine what it would be like to go back for a weekend in the same spot where the last time you were there something terrible happened.Then when you get there strange things start happening again. I enjoyed trying to figure out who the actual "bad" guy was as it seemed just when I thought I had something figured out I would read something that changed my mind. Another thing that I liked was how we got to learn a little about each character a little at a time. This was one thing that made me want to keep reading. In my opinion this book would make a good movie. I am going to try more books by this author.
