Don’t open that present!

If only Reva Dalby had listened to that warning.

But beautiful, cold Reva won’t listen to anyone. Reva thinks she can have whatever—and whoever—she wants. After all, her daddy owns Dalby Department Stores.

Now, someone has some surprises instore for her. Robbery? Terror? Even murder? Someone wants to treat Reva to a holiday she’ll never forget.

Holiday cheer quickly turns to holiday chills for Reva. Someone is stalking her, someone is trying to get to her.

Her money can’t help her. No one can.

After all, who can you turn to when murder comes gift-wrapped?

My rating: ★★★★★

Happy holidays—you're dead!

Oh snobby, rich girl Reva Dalby. Just because her daddy owns the chain of Dalby Department stores, she thinks she’s above everyone else, treating them all like sh*t. Even her own cousin Pam. She’s definitely earned the wrath of many people with her actions. One of those people has decided to take revenge on the spoiled brat. But what starts off as pranks, soon turn more sinister. More deadly. Horrifying things keep happening to Reva. Someone is trying to scare her and it’s working. But would they go as far as to actually kill her? Poor little rich girl Reva will have to learn her lesson the bad way, before she gets dead.

And there are SO many people trying to get back at Reva, even her own cousin! But I honestly cannot blame Pam—I totally get her motivation! I mean, it all started with a vicious prank on Reva’s part, so this is all her own fault! I cannot believe her! She is so mean and I just don’t understand how/why she is like this! But here’s the thing, I loved that Reva was so awful! I mean, I didn’t love it, but I like the fact that our main character is so bitchy and (mostly) unlikable! It’s just very refreshing! This book was full of very interesting characters!

Silent Night is definitely one of the better Fear Street books out there! It had so many great plot twists I did not see coming—finding out who was sending Reva all these threatening gifts, and finding out who the murderer was... whoa. The mystery was just great! Plus I loved the setting! I’ve actually already read this one like three times now! And it’s also a great holiday read... if you’re into sinister holiday reads ;)

The Fear Street connection: Reva's cousin Pam lives on the dreaded street. Poor Pam.
