For such an unassuming title and cover I was surprised at how dark a story lay within these pages.

"All the days became so long
Did you really think, I'd do you wrong
Dixie, when I let you go
Thought you'd realize, that I would know, I would show
The special love I have for you, my Baby Blue" ~ Badfinger
 
 

 
 
An utterly propulsive and unpredictable psychological thriller from stunning new talent T. Marie Vandelly.

She didn't run from her dark past. She moved in. 
 
For the lucky among us, life is what you make of it; but for Dixie Wheeler, the theme music for her story was chosen by another long ago, on the day her father butchered her mother and brothers and then slashed a knife across his own throat. Only one-year-old Dixie was spared, becoming infamously known as Baby Blue for the song left playing in the aftermath of the slaughter. 

Twenty-five years later, Dixie is still desperate for a connection to the family she can’t remember. So when her childhood home goes up for sale, Dixie sets aside all reason and moves in. But as the ghosts of her family seemingly begin to take up residence in the house that was once theirs, Dixie starts to question her own sanity and wonders if the evil force menacing her is that of her father or a demon of her own making. 

In order to make sense of her present, Dixie becomes determined to unravel the truth of her past and seeks out the detective who originally investigated the murders. But the more she learns, the more she opens up the uncomfortable possibility that the sins of her father may belong to another. As bodies begin to pile up around her, Dixie must find a way to expose the lunacy behind her family’s massacre to save her few loved ones that are still alive—and whatever scrap of sanity she has left.

Never."—Louise Candlish, bestselling author of Our House and Those People

“A hypnotic blend of mind-bending, quasi-supernatural suspense and dark family secrets—readers will find themselves completely immersed in the utterly convincing world [Vandelly] crafts… vivid and lush, intricate and downright addictive.
