Stay on the roads. Don’t enter the woods. Never go out at night.
Those are the rules in Rowan’s Glen, a remote farming community in the Missouri Ozarks where Ivy Templeton’s family has lived for centuries. It’s an old-fashioned way of life, full of superstition and traditions, and sixteen-year-old Ivy loves it. The other kids at school may think the Glen kids are weird, but Ivy doesn’t care—she has her cousin Heather as her best friend. The two girls share everything with each other—or so Ivy thinks. When Heather goes missing after a May Day celebration, Ivy discovers that both her best friend and her beloved hometown are as full of secrets as the woods that surround them.
I was extremely looking forward to reading The May Queen Murders, but for some reason I didn’t enjoy it all that much. The story follows a girl named Ivy who lives in a town that has been haunted by murders in the past right after a young girl was named the May Queen. Years later, the town decides to host the May Day celebration again and this time, Ivy’s closest friend Heather is crowned only for her to disappear soon after.
Let me start this review off by saying that some scenes in this novel were extremely macabre. They were very graphic and violet at times with what happened to the different animals and people, so you definitely have to be able to bear reading that stuff in order to get through this book.

What I didn’t like:
I think that if you like thrillers with a twist that are extremely macabre then this is a book for you!
