Synopsis:
You could get burned…

The perfect suntan. Soaking up the rays. Fun on the beach. That’s what Claudia Walker had in mind when she accepted her friend Marla’s invitation to spend the weekend at her cliffside beach house. Little did she know that horrible accidents—fatal accidents—would occur on the beach and in the house.

But Claudia knows they’re not “accidents.” She’s sure somebody is out to get them…out to kill them. The week of “fun in the sun” has turned dark and deadly!

Review:
I was OBSESSED with the Goosebumps and Fear Street books growing up! A few years ago I bought about 20 of them off eBay so I quite a few to choose from. It did take me about 10 minutes to pick which one to read though. As soon as I started it I was brought back to my childhood, such nostalgia. About halfway through I figured out the twist and I don’t know if it was because it was obvious or if I remembered it from reading it many, many years ago. Either way it was a fun read. One day I will go back and read the other ones I have. It is hard to rate this book because as a kid I would have rated it something different than I would as an adult. These books can literally be read in a hour and aren’t that compelling but again they are fun and make me smile just because. For that I am going to rate it higher than I probably should 🙂

P.S. Does anyone else think the blond girl on the cover looks like Nicole Eggert from Baywatch days? Maybe Mr. Stine had a crush on her!
