Title: The Window
Author: Carol Ellis
Published: 1993
Publisher: Scholastic
Pages: 176
Summary:

It should have been the skiing holdiay of a lifetime, but Jody sprains her ankle and finds herself alone with nothing to do but gaze out of her cabin window. Looking into the cabin of her neighbour, she witnesses a fight and murder – or does she?  (fantasticfiction.co.uk)

You know it’s scary because the cover has a blood smear on it.  *nods*  Horrifying.  Except when I read about it being a ski weekend I’m not really making the connection between that and the roses.  Valentine’s Weekend?  Or at least make the smear a bloody hand print.  I know there’s a movie like this.  They spoof it on The Simpsons and Family Guy.  I’ll be damned if I know what movie it is though.
