Al Capone at the Blanche Hotel by Linda Bennett Pennell. I loved this book.I started it at 8:30 pm and stayed up until 2am to finish. It hooks you from the beginning and doesn’t let you go til the end. Its 2 stories actually. It starts in Lake City, Florida in the 1930s when Al Capone checks into the Blanche Hotel for an extended amount of time. The following night a guy named Jack Blevins sees a body being dumped which is a prequel for a very violent summer. The dirty county politics & KKK start killing people left and right. As the body count rises someone is making plans to fill those voids if they don’t all die! Enter Liz Reams in 2011 who is a studying the history of American Crime and has moved across the continent to follow a man. Once she moves she realizes her family and friends were probably right and he’s not the man for her so she immerses herself in her studies. Mystery is all over the fact that Al Capone checked into a little hotel in the middle of nowhere. Why did he pick that hotel in that city. Was he behind the high body count that summer? What Liz finds out will curl your toes and keep you turning the pages way into the night! She is changed forever and if you read this book you will be too! Its an amazing book!
