    Murder: It’s All In Your Head by Cynthia Hilston is a very unique, supernatural thriller that I wasn’t expecting! This is so different than anything I’ve read before, making this an easy five stars. Body swapping isn’t an unexplored theme, but the way Cynthia Hilston writes this novel, it puts a brilliant spin on this plot. The characters are compelling. We are taken on quite a journey of emotion…from pity to disgust. I was very impressed with the way each character was developed.

    Wow, this was probably the most original plot I’ve come across in my entire reading year! Imagine the soul of an abused girl, who has been pushed over the edge, accumulates enough power to possess any body it wishes in order to wreak havoc upon the world that has wronged her? And now imagine if the years pass and the soul lives on, skipping from one host to another, an immortal entity that corrupts anything it touches.

Imagine the soul of an abused girl, who has been pushed over the edge, accumulates enough power to possess any body it wishes in order to wreak havoc upon the world that has wronged her? And now imagine if the years pass and the soul lives on, skipping from one host to another, an immortal entity that corrupts anything it touches. Cassie and Randy discover what it’s capable of in their own example when their bodies are hijacked and forced to do the entity’s dark bidding. Will they be able to cope with the consequences and find light in the ocean of darkness or will it obliterate them like it obliterated its previous victims? Read it to find out. The plot is incredibly imaginative. Each character is wonderfully fleshed-out and relatable. My heart ached for some; one particular character I wanted to die a very long and painful death - you’ll know who I’m talking about once you read it. It’s never an easy feat to create such an emotional response in the reader, and I applaud Ms. Hilston for her ability to write her characters so masterfully. It’s dark and disturbing at times, but it’s also hopeful and makes you think. I was very impressed with this story and I would highly recommend it to all fans of the genre.

    When I read the synopsis I was intrigued. Never have I read a book with this kind of concept and I was curious to see what the real truth the story really was. The sentence "Someone has been getting away with murder for over 100 years" already calls for certain questions. Who is being? That is happening in that town? How could this happen?

As we are taken on a journey of well crafted psychological thriller, we enter a new reality. We jump from one point to another, learning about every character involved in these crazy plot. We are put to the test, really. We are sucked into the story and the narrative, we are creating connections and trying to answer questions at the same rhythm we are asking them. Do they seem unrelated? Yes. Do everything sound strange? Yes. But was it mind blowing? Absolutely! It was the kind of book I didn't know I needed to read until I started it. And I may reread it again to see if I can find anymore clues and details that may have escape my first read. That's how I know I enjoyed the book and was blown away by the story... when I immediately make plans to reread it. It's a strong book, that talks about various aspects of humans, society and right & wrong. It left me wondering. It left me thinking. It left me understanding the characters in a powerful way, and emotional connection. Overall, I loved it. It was unique, it had horror, mystery, thrilling moments and it played with my mind at each turn of the page. Definitely the kind of book to catch our attention and letting up desperate to learn more.

Murder it’s all in your head is a psychological thriller with unexpected plot twists and turns and an unpredictable ending. Set in Ohio across a century, from 1914 – 2018, this novel has a clever and original premise . A wronged soul becomes able to possess other bodies and jump from one to another as the whim takes her. When she does this the soul who belongs in her chosen body ends up being displaced into the last body she possessed. The first example of this is when in 2018, teenage girl, Cassie, out riding her bike suddenly experiences a blinding white flash and finds herself in the body of a bearded millionaire, Randall Davis, whose wife, Danielle she finds lying in their bathtub with her throat cut. When the police arrive Cassie/Randall is the prime suspect and due to her ravings about being a teenage girl is sent to an institution for the criminally insane, after being convicted of murder. By a quirk of fate it turns out that Randall’s soul is also in this facility, in the body of an old man, James Williams, who killed his neighbors and keeps insisting to the authorities that he is actually Randall Davies. Randall in James’ body makes the assumption that the soul of the old man, James must be in his body (a straight swap) and therefore must be his beloved Danielle’s murderer, leading him to attack his own body on sight. Confused yet? Cassie’s body is now inhabited by the actual murderer and Cassie’s unsuspecting family is the next target. Can these two natural enemies, Randall and the person he thinks murdered his wife, work out what is going on and hatch a plan together that will save Cassie’s family in time? Along with these poor unsuspecting individuals, we experience the frustrating horror of not being able to escape the body they now find themselves in, as they are punished for the deeds “they” have done. As the story develops we learn that the murderer is a girl named Helen, with a tragic backstory from back in 1914 when she was only twelve and her monster of a father, a pastor who is questioning his faith, would beat and rape her repeatedly. In this way we find out what exactly has warped and crazed her to make her become such an evil monster: “A wound that remained open as long as hers never healed” I liked the way the narrative jumps between times and locations giving us a taste of each character before jumping on to the next one. The characters often dream of their own memories and sometimes those of the body they inhabit, which helps to fill in the back stories of each character, making them more well-rounded and believable. The mystery deepens and we wonder how it can ever be resolved. Twisted Helen has been killing and body jumping for a long time now and developed a taste for it. Her motto is: “I always finish what I start” This book is a gripping page turner. I couldn’t imagine how these unfortunate victims left in the wrong bodies were going to be able to bring an end to their situations, so I kept on reading trying to figure it out. In fact the way the story concluded took me completely by surprise! This book has an unsavory theme running through it of mean and sadistic fathers and uncaring or incapable mothers. There are also examples of murder, child abuse and torture. Bearing that in mind I would highly recommend it for fans of murder mystery with a supernatural flavor.

    Emotionally and physically beaten and abused as a child, Helen Hawkins “blacks out” to avoid the horrors.

What she at first believes to be daydreams, she realizes are the minds/bodies of other people. Others who have easier lives where they’re loved and wanted. Unlike her. The death of the mother she loved, yet despised for not protecting her, and rejection from the only person she ever fell in love with leave Helen alone with her abuser… her minister father. She also has a new ability. She no longer suffers blackouts, but instead can possess the minds/bodies of others. Furious at never having the love and compassion so many take for granted, Helen will use her “gift” to “escape” and exact revenge on her father… and many others over the next one hundred years. When two of her victims meet up in a mental hospital, they struggle to come to grips with who they are, especially when no one believes them, but their biggest obstacle is stopping Helen. Is it even possible? Reminiscent of Denzel Washington’s Fallen, instead of possession by an ageless demon, this mind-bending thriller uses the endless abuses a young girl suffers to not only take her from her own mind (and body) but also make her the villain who wants others to suffer as she did. But could taking over the life of another teenage girl give Helen back her humanity or lead to her own personal hell… again? Cassie/Randy/Jimmy are some of the well-written characters Helen interacts with who give this read its heart, along with a special mention for nurse Nora. Enjoy!

    If you are into Supernatural Thrillers then you must pick this one up! It’s so different than anything I have read before and I don’t get to say that too often. The theme of this story is how the mistreatment of one can spell disaster for so many others. We see this time and time again.

It’s so different than anything I have read before and I don’t get to say that too often. The theme of this story is how the mistreatment of one can spell disaster for so many others. We see this time and time again. But in this unique tale, the one mistreated has a special ability to switch bodies with others. To literally put their mind and conscience into another person’s body. This opens up the possibility to do unspeakable acts while in the new body. Unspeakable acts that they will never be held accountable for. But what happens to the person’s mind that they switched with? The innocent victim that is stripped from their body? It’s crazy to think about! I loved the uniqueness of this story. As often is the case, the abused becomes the abuser and this author does a great job of bringing the reader on a journey of emotions as the victim turns into the abuser. At first there is sorrow and pity for this character. Then sadness and disgust at the turning point. Then rage and the hope that someone can stop this new monster they have become. But this story isn’t just about this one character. This story revolves around several main characters, each with their own agendas. I was a bit confused to start with as I didn’t understand how all the character stories (3 main stories) were going to come in line, but once I got it I was racing to read the next page and the next page in order to figure out what would happen and how this monster could be stopped! I also did not predict the shocking ending which is always a big plus! This will be a story that stays with me for some time. Loved it!

    Murder: It's All In Your Head is like if Freaky Friday were a horror movie that made you feel as though you were slowly losing your mind trying to make sense of it all. It's dark. It's depressing. It's relentless. And it's definitely a frustrating ending, that's for sure. The book starts with Cassie, a teenage girl on her way to school. One minute she's outside heading down the street, and the next she's in a strange body staring at a dead woman in a bathtub. Yikes!

It's dark. It's depressing. It's relentless. And it's definitely a frustrating ending, that's for sure. The book starts with Cassie, a teenage girl on her way to school. One minute she's outside heading down the street, and the next she's in a strange body staring at a dead woman in a bathtub. Yikes! That's just the beginning of Cassie's problems, though. Locked up in an asylum for criminally insane people is Jimmy Williams. But Jimmy Williams claims he's actually Randy Davis, a very well-known millionaire. No one believes him, though. What's a guy to do? In 1914, a young girl named Helen is dealing with things no twelve year old should have to. Her mother is seemingly in denial about the abuse Helen's father is inflicting upon her on an almost daily basis. It's not just beatings with a belt, though. No, Helen's father, a pastor, is doing unspeakable, disgusting things to his young daughter. How do all of these characters tie in together? You'll have to read it and find out. There's a lot going on in this book. It gets a little convoluted at times, but it's relatively easy to keep track of who is who most of the time. I definitely found this to be an intriguing read. Even with how dark and difficult it was to read at times (due to the subject matter of Helen's story), it was one of those stories that sucked me right in and held me captive until the very end. I did feel like I was going a little crazy at times too. Overall, a pretty solid paranormal suspense thriller. If you're into body swap stories that are more horror than comedy, give this one a go. 4 stars.

They realize they have to put a stop to what is happening but how can they do that locked up? This was a new to me take on the supernatural thriller/mystery. Then add in a body swap storyline with a spirit bent on revenge. What happens when a person is so abused that they are pushed over the edge until they have the ability to posses any body they wish in order to take revenge on the world that did nothing to help them. You want to feel bad for Helen but how do you feel bad for a soul that’s only out for vengeance? This book definitely has its dark moments. I enjoyed the different take on the possession aspect of the story. Its a fairly quick read at 230 pages. I give it 3.75 of 5 stars. Thank you to Rachel’s Random Resources and author Cynthia Hilston for the review copy of this book. My thoughts and opinions are my own.

Cassie and Randy have been screwed over and no one believes them. I hoped that they would make it out or at least stop Helen even though I couldn’t figure out how that would work out. This is an amazing read and one that I recommend checking out. This is the first book of Cynthia Hilston’s that I have read but I will definitely be checking out her other books. Make sure to pick up a copy of Murder: It’s All in Your Head. I think it will be one of your next favorite reads. I received a complimentary copy of this book. I voluntarily chose to read and post an honest review.

Will the evil Helen started in 1914 finally end with Cassie over 100 years later? My Thoughts: 📝This supernatural thriller has a plot unlike anything I’ve ever read. The plot which could seem chaotic with three characters inhabiting different bodies and a time period difference of 100 years was well organized by time periods and people. 📝It was supper creepy when “the girl” walks into Cassie’s house as Cassie the first time..like full body chills creepy. 📝A part that sounds confusing but was really good was when Cassie (in Randy’s body) approaches the real Randy (in Jimmy’s body) about who she really is. The bond that the real Randy and Cassie share is very well done. 📝 The ending..very good!

    This was an amazing, off the wall, twisted and disturbing but yet it was an utterly gripping read! In 1914 we meet Helen Hawkins, who is repeatably abused by her father who just so happens to be the town’s pastor – my heart went out to Helen at what she had to endure at the hands of her father. When Helen discovers she can wake up on other people’s bodies this become a source of escape for her, and when she managed to take over her fathers body she thinks she will put and end to her abuse.

    This book was really original and unique to me. We go in with a bang to find someone has been murdered and the murderer has been getting away with it for over 100 years. A few things that I feel like this book may have lacked is addressing not only has this murderer been getting away with it for so long, but that they are basically immortal! The middle of the book took a little longer to get through but the ending was good!

    Woah. What did I read?! At first, this book was confusing me. It was a lot of characters to learn and different time frames. BUT once you figure it out, HOLY MOLY. I honestly don’t even know how to summarize or give an overview. Like... okay... Cassie is a normal teenager until she ends up in someone else’s body. But where is the person she is inhabiting? And who’s in her body? AKA WHAT THE HECK IS HAPPENING!!!! Awesome book. Sub par-ish ending. But not everything is sunshine and rainbows

    What is not to love. This book is brilliantly dark. The characters all vary in age and over various years from 1914 to 2018. It's a book that doesn't fit into a particular genre, it lends itself to a thriller, a mystery and the supernatural. I love anything that dips into possession and souls hopping from host to host and this book didnt disappoint. It isn't a book for the faint hearted as there are elements of abuse but is really well written. I really look forward to reading more from this author What is not to love.

    How disturbing a story can be…   In 1914 is Helen Hawkins abused by her father. The only way she can escape the abuse is in her dreams, where she can dream of living other lives. But her dreams appear to be more than just dreams, because apparently she truly has the ability to switch to others’ bodies.
In 2018 young Cassie Meadows finds herself suddenly in the body of Randy Davis, accused of murdering his own wife.
And that while the real Randy Davis finds himself in the body of Jimmy Williams, an How disturbing a story can be…   In 1914 is Helen Hawkins abused by her father. The only way she can escape the abuse is in her dreams, where she can dream of living other lives. But her dreams appear to be more than just dreams, because apparently she truly has the ability to switch to others’ bodies.
In 2018 young Cassie Meadows finds herself suddenly in the body of Randy Davis, accused of murdering his own wife.
And that while the real Randy Davis finds himself in the body of Jimmy Williams, an old man living in a ward for the criminally insane.
Is there a possibility for each one to get their own lives back? Or are they doomed to pay for a crime they didn’t commit?   Where initially I was sympathetic towards Helen, my feelings quickly changed into not so nice thoughts.
Even if she endured terrible things, ‘thanks’ to her father, the way she is evolving is the story is making her an even bigger monster.
All the sympathy I ever had for this young woman, evaporated into pure disgust and a hope that she someday she should pay for all the pain she has caused.   When the book goes forward into 2018, you have to keep your mind stuck to the story, to avoid a big confusion.
Yet both Cassie and Randy are people that I pitied. Finding yourself in the body of a stranger, and on top being accused of something you didn’t do… just the horror of it all!

While reading this story, you have to have a really open mind, otherwise you will find it hard to continue reading it. 
Yet even if I truly believe that the whole concept of body – switching is truly science fiction, this story kept me going.
I was keeping my fingers crossed that  Cassie and Randy would find a way to get back to their own lives and that Helen would get what she deserved.   This was a disturbing story to read, about people who were done wrong, become doing the wrong and how victims of evil can see their whole lives destroyed without being able to prevent it.
It gave me goose bumps all the way, as there were terrifying moments, yet there were also some kinder moments, allowing the reader to take a breath of fresh air and having even more sympathy for Cassie and Randy.   This is truly a horror story, mixed with thriller and mystery and a lot of science fiction, that kept me on the edge of my seat!

But the wrong person has been convicted of those murders every time. In 2018, Cassie Meadows is on her way to school when a bright flash comes out of nowhere, and she wakes in millionaire Randy Davis’s body with blood on her hands…the blood of Randy’s wife, who lies in a pool of crimson in the bathtub with her throat slit. Meanwhile, an old man everyone calls Jimmy Williams raves that he’s the real Randy Davis as he lives out his days in a ward for the criminally insane. In 1914, young Helen Hawkins is unloved and repetitively abused by her father, who is also the town’s pastor. Her only escape is in her dreams, where she wakes in others’ bodies, living other lives, but when her dreams turn out to be reality, the tables are turned on her father. In a story where no one is who they seem, how can Cassie, the latest victim accused of a murder she didn’t commit, end the cycle? 🙍‍♀️Thank you to @rachelrandomresouces and @authorcynthiahilston for giving me the opportunity to read and review this novel. This book is challenging on many levels: the subject matter first and foremost which deals with murder, rape and abuse, the different times and different people: 1918 and 2018 and whose mind was in whose body at a given time that to keep up I resorted to using pen and paper to remind myself. 👱‍♀️I was really intrigued by the premise of it and this is what spurred me on to keep going with it and I'm glad I did because once I had the characters set in my mind my reading pace picked up. 👨‍🦱Dark, twisted and disturbing but utterly gripping. 🧔🙍‍♀️👱‍♀️👨‍🦱/5

This story wastes no time in jumping straight to the action. Giving us three different protagonists and their points of view. You get a taste of their current predicament. The different lives intermingle with one another, the story bleeding across the lives of our three protagonists. This story had an extremely interesting and unique plot. It gives you characters to feel pity for, and some to absolutely hate. Knowing that there is a much stronger reasoning behind why the murderer does what they do– I can sort of understand and sympathize with them, which I didn’t fully expect to feel in this story. It left me feeling conflicted in the best of ways. Despite there sort of being three different story lines, they are extremely to keep up with. I didn’t get confused between changing POV’s at all. The romance that starts to take place didn’t feel completely believable, but I liked the addition of it to the story. This story even had a nice but if surprising bit of shock at the murders that take place, especially during the last couple of scenes of the novel. The ending was a bittersweet one and I quite enjoyed it!
