Murder: It’s All in Your Head by Cynthia Hilston

Someone has been getting away with murder for over 100 years in the small town of Hurston, Ohio. But the wrong person has been convicted of those murders every time. In 2018, Cassie Meadows is on her way to school when a bright flash comes out of nowhere, and she wakes in millionaire Randy Davis’s body with blood on her hands…the blood of Randy’s wife, who lies in a pool of crimson in the bathtub with her throat slit. Meanwhile, an old man everyone calls Jimmy Williams raves that he’s the real Randy Davis as he lives out his days in a ward for the criminally insane. In 1914, young Helen Hawkins is unloved and repetitively abused by her father, who is also the town’s pastor. Her only escape is in her dreams, where she wakes in others’ bodies, living other lives, but when her dreams turn out to be reality, the tables are turned on her father. In a story where no one is who they seem, how can Cassie, the latest victim accused of a murder she didn’t commit, end the cycle?

My Review

5 stars

It is 1914 and Helen Hawkins and is scared of her pastor father and mad at the mother that defends him. Helen learns that she has a special ability to switch bodies but has no control of it. But once she has control she is not going to let anyone from stopping her again.

In 2018 Cassie Meadows awakens in a man’s body that is covered in his wife’s blood. She has no idea what is going on and ends up caught by the police and placed in a mental institution. Randy Davis is in the same mental institute and recognizes his body. It’s going to be up to Cassie and Randy to stop Helen but that is going to be hard when they are locked away.

This is one heck of a great ready. At first my heart went out to Helen and the abuse she went through. But all that really did was to create the monster she becomes. Cassie and Randy have been screwed over and no one believes them. I hoped that they would make it out or at least stop Helen even though I couldn’t figure out how that would work out.

This is an amazing read and one that I recommend checking out. This is the first book of Cynthia Hilston’s that I have read but I will definitely be checking out her other books. Make sure to pick up a copy of Murder: It’s All in Your Head. I think it will be one of your next favorite reads.

I received a complimentary copy of this book. I voluntarily chose to read and post an honest review.
