As if the tension isn’t bad enough, they soon discover that the business might be a front for something much more sinister.
When Justyn is accused of a crime that she knows he would never commit, Rebecca must decide if she wants to follow her head or her heart. While trying to prove his innocence, she makes a shocking discovery of her own.
Everyone has something to conceal in the grand finale of the Dark Musicals Trilogy. Rebecca has to look beyond the façade to discover the true Hyde or face her final curtain call.
First and foremost I must say that I have been hooked since Phantom came out. Then I don't know what happened then Hyde was out. Then I was told that there was Demon as well! Well Hello!! Why didn't anyone tell me sooner?
That's okay, it just gave me a reason to start all over from the beginning which is what I like to do anyhow.
From Phantom all the way to Hyde, each story flowed so nicely, there wasn't a bunch of missed time from each book to be lost. Thank you Miss Laura! :)
Anyhow, Hyde it was more focused on Justyn, finally!! He is a little Goth sounding but that's okay. I can look past that. ;) He more than makes up for in the type of person he is. Well WAS I should say. Justyn, Rebecca, Carmen and Todd are of on an adventure. To star in Cape May's Musical of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde.
However it's haunted...Good info to know beforehand right Scoob?
In this one, the final curtain of The Dark Musical trilogy there's SO much going on in here. You all def need to read it because well it's AWESOME...adventure, mystery, suspense, happiness that erupts out of twisted plots. Interesting and very well written!!!
Be sure to add Hyde to your to-read list on Goodreads!
Guest Post-On The Way To Cape May
In Demon, I had my characters stop by to visit my home town of Wildwood. In Hyde, most of the story is set in another little town in South Jersey that is close to my heart, Victorian Cape May. Today I thought I'd take the time to show you some of the sights of Cape May, many of which helped to set the scene for the final book in the Dark Musicals Trilogy. But before we go sightseeing, enjoy this classic song, On the Way to Cape May.
As soon as you enter the streets of Cape May, it’s like stepping back in time. The streets are lined with beautiful homes, painted in pastels and lined with gingerbread trim. These homes have stood the test of time, many standing over a century or more despite being battered by hurricanes and tropical storms including Super Storm Sandy. Here are a few of my favorite houses.
These horse and buggies might be pretty to look out, but as the gang in Hyde discover, it’s no fun getting stuck behind one of the road.
This is the parking lot in Cape May where Justyn has to leave his Mustang in Hyde. With limited parking space in the city, most of the local businesses pay for passes for their employees to park here. See that brown building in the background? That's the insurance agency where I worked for ten years. My husband used to park in the city lot next store to my office when he was a chef in Cape May. Our cars were parked nose to nose for years, but with different schedules we never met until we tried internet dating. Behind the parking lot and my old office are some lovely marshes that are a great place to dump bodies.
In Hyde, Justyn and Becca get a job at a dinner theater in Cape May. In the story, the name of the establishment is Tamilio's, named after my step-father Fernando who is their boss. The description of the theater is a combination of these two buildings--a real dinner theater in Cape May called Elaine's and a bed & breakfast called the Sea Mist that Fernando used to own. As mentioned in the story, both these buildings, and many of the Victorian structures in Cape May, are believed to be haunted.
There are lots of other fun stops in Cape May. If you ever visit the Jersey Shore, be sure to stop by and visit, just watch out for the ghosts. To learn more about the town, be sure to pick up your copy of Hyde today.
