by Kelly Martin
Local legend says Trinity Row is the house that won't die. Local legend isn't wrong.
Sixteen-year-old Ivy Black and her mom have moved in for a quick renovation to make an easy buck. Then it will be on to the next rundown, abandoned eyesore.
For the last three years, Ivy and her mom have run far away from their past. That's the thing about Trinity Row, though. It doesn't let the past die.
When Ivy finds out that the friends she thought she made and the things she thought she's seen aren't exactly what she believed, she goes on a mission to free her mother from the snare of Trinity Row and the evil spirit controlling it.
Except, after a trip to Trinity Row, you'll never want to go home again.
For fans of The Haunting of Hill House and Kendare Blake's Anna Dressed in Blood.
"I'm a sucker for ghost stories and this one didn't disappoint. Not only did it have the creepy paranormal plot, but she managed to add unique elements that kept my attention and had me wondering who was trustworthy and who wasn't. From the cover and title to the ghosts inside, Trinity Row sucked me right in!" - Janae, Amazon

"This is my first read by Kelly Martin and holy cow. For sure will not be the last.
Trinity Row was a mind trip. Anyone who knows me knows that I don't re-read books, ever. This one will most likely be re-read eventually to see what I might have missed. Any hints along the way. It truly leaves your mind reeling. I highly recommend this!" - Crystal, 2 Girls & A Book

"Trinity Row by Kelly Martin is the perfect book to read during Halloween! It will keep you in suspense and have you turning pages well into the night. You will not be able to put this book down! Ivy Black and her mother buy houses to flip and resell at a profit. They could not refuse the offer to buy Trinity Row for just one dollar. If it looks to good to be true, it probably is and in this case it REALLY is. This book has ghosts, a haunted house and a lot of suspense." - Kate, Amazon
"I haven't read anything so scary since The Amityville Horror! It was so suspenseful and terrifying it took my breath away. And the climax puts one in mind of the end of Carrie! OMG if you want first class, scare the socks off you ghost stories, do not pass up Trinity Row! Unbelievably horrifying. Plenty of ghosts to keep you in suspense!" - Roxanne, Amazon

Author Kelly Martin knows how to bring on the creepy. As soon as I heard about this book I knew I had to have it. I have been a fan of her work for quite a while and now Trinity Row is my absolute favorite by her. She really knocked it out of the park with this frightening and mysterious tale. I thought I had it all figured out about half way through, then BAM she through a curve ball that left me jumping out of my seat.

There’s nothing quite like a thriller (the bathroom scene is creepy perfection) which can hold you captivated, frantically turning the pages as fast as you can (hello, Stephen King) yet, also really makes you think - questioning what you would do for love.
★★★★★ By Stephanie, Amazon
Horror is not my usual go-to, but I've loved anything I've ever read written by Kelly Martin so decided to give it a try. So glad I did! She develops characters and scenes in a way that it's easy to picture in my mind. So much horror includes gore and violence. But not Kelly Martin in this book. She writes it on a way that keeps you on the edge of your seat with goosebumps, but without the unnecessary gore. Perfect amount of scare that keeps you turning the pages but doesn't keep you up at night or make you afraid at home alone (except maybe in the bathroom ;).
★★★★★ By Lynn, 2 Girls & A Book
Fans of the classic Alfred Hitchcock movies are going to love Trinity Row. This story is unnerving and will leave readers questioning their sanity! The house will not die and the person pulling its strings might not be who you think. I found myself scrolling back and re-reading sections to see if I missed any clues. Trinity Row is a twisted, haunting tale that you simply must read more than once.
