An isolated mansion A chillingly charismatic aristocrat And a brave socialite drawn to expose their treacherous secrets From the author of Gods of Jade and Shadow comes a novel set in glamorous 1950s Mexico After receiving a frantic letter from her newlywed cousin begging for someone to save her from a mysterious doom Noemí Taboada heads to High Place a distant house in the Mexican countryside She’s not sure what she will find her cousin’s husband a handsome Englishman is a stranger and Noemí knows little about I pray I ll see you again You must come for me Noem You have to save meWHEW You think you know where this book is going and then it goes there Mexican Gothic begins in such an unassuming way where you think you re walking into a traditional haunted house story and then everything shifts to pull you under like a riptide that doesn t loosen until you turn the final page Before I dive into my review I think it s fair to note that the majority of this book is atmospheric character driven and the slowest burn imaginable for me this worked spectacularly well as I love to feel completely absorbed into the narrative in horror novels And yes friends this is most definitely a horror novel I ll include content warnings in a spoiler tag below for those who are interested Noem s father said she cared too much about her looks and parties to take school seriously as if a woman could not do two things at onceMaybe the reason why this slow burn worked so well for me is because I instantly connected with Noem she is confident intelligent and the life of the party When her father receives a suspicious letter from Noem s cousin Catalina he sends Noem to investigate and report back As expected everyone involved gets than they bargained for and what begins as a handful of unusual occurrences slowly morphs into a whirlwind of horrifying circumstances This house she was sure was haunted She wasn t one for believing in things that go bump in the night either but right that second she firmly felt every spook and demon and evil thing might be crawling about the earth like in Catalina s storiesOne of the things I loved the most about this story is how vastly different the haunted house felt The author has successfully blended the traditional aspects of the old decrepit ghost filled residence and a new modern aspect one I won t go into detail of for fear of spoiling the big twist I think she nailed it on the head when she stated in her Goodreads interview that this book is for the reader who is both classy and trashy because it has the high entertainment value that fast fiction lovers rejoice in but it is also filled with beautifully devastating prose If you too have a love affair with all things that go bump in the night Mexican Gothic should be your top priority this summer I cannot recommend this book highly enough to those who have a desire to spend long hours in a derelict house and an iron stomach The truth was she was afraid of going to bed of what nightmares might uncoil in the dark What did people do after witnessing the horrors they had seen Was it possible to slip back into normality to play pretend and go on She wanted to think this was exactly the case but she was afraid sleep would prove her wrongContent Warning view spoilerSexual assault incest murder and gore cannibalism themes challenging white supremacy and eugenics discussions surrounding the death of a parent and other family members miscarriages and stillbirths discussions surrounding suicide and the consumption of alcohol and smoking hide spoiler
