Book Review: The Coffin

Title: The Coffin: The Scarry Inn Book 2

Author: Shirley McCann



When Clare, Lise, and Kelly arrive at The Scarry Inn just before a major storm, they’re thrilled to learn they’ll be staying in a room known as The Coffin, which is adorned with coffin beds and other macabre decorations.

Little do they know that one of them will end up in a coffin for real – because a tornado isn’t the only thing threatening the inn’s grand opening. A killer is determined to make sure the inn doesn’t open at all. And that person will stop at nothing to achieve that end.

My Review

4/5 Stars

So when I first started this book, I wasn’t sure what to think since I haven’t read the first one. However, the transition into the story made it easy for me to fully submerge myself into the what’s going on. In this book, the Scarry Inn is preparing to open after the gruesome murders that occurred there 6 months before. The guests who have been invited have no idea about its past until they arrive, and then what’s supposed to be a fun weekend turns into a struggle for their very lives.

This story reminded me of Agatha Christie’s novel And Then There were None. Just about every chapter was filled with a new terrifying situation, and the not knowing of which character would die next. I love how the author was also able to keep me in suspense about who the killer was.

The narration was smooth and added to the dismal tones at all the right times creating an audiobook heavy in drama. An excellent pickup for fans of horror.

Proud author responsible for Dead by Morning and The Council, fascinated by the dark and macabre. Stephen King is her all time inspiration mixed in with a little bit of Eminem and some faint remnants of the works of Edgar Allen Poe. When she began writing, she started in horror but it somehow drifted into thriller. She loves the 1988 movie Heathers. She was born and raised in Michigan but traveled across the country to where she currently resides in Texas.
