MY REVIEW

Alice’s father had died in a hit and run and left her with the great mystery about a past and a mother whom she knows nothing about. All her collections were about a gothic home and when she got an invitation to stay in that home, she was eager to get to know her past. But bodies piled up…

This was an exciting thriller, my first by this author. A locked room mystery, it kept me on my toes though some subplots were quite tangential, but I didn’t  mind it, given that the atmosphere totally made up for it.

The main character felt to be genuine weaving in with the story. The writing kept the vibe of horror and impending danger alive.

I would like to say I knew where the story was heading to, but after the initial pages, I stopped analyzing and kept to immersing myself in the story.

Absolutely captivating this was with horror and mystery. Enjoyed it

I love locked room/island/house/setting kinda mystery. Any recs?

BOOK BLURB

A DARK FAMILY SECRET

When Alice’s father dies after a tragic hit and run, his death stirs up unanswered questions about her childhood. Who was her mother, why did her father never speak of the past, and why can’t she remember anything before the age of seven?

AN ISLAND CUT OFF

But when she receives an anonymous letter containing a photograph of a refurbished gothic guesthouse surrounded by water, and an invitation to stay, old memories fight to resurface.

Alice has visited before. She is certain of it.

WHO WILL SURVIVE?

Convinced the clues to her past lie at the hotel, she checks in. But once on the island, a wild storm rages, waves crash violently into the rocks, and the house is cut off by the roaring sea.

Then two guests are found dead. And the hotel owner is missing. Will Alice ever uncover her secret past?

And will anyone leave the island alive?

Publication Date: July 2021

I downloaded the digital version of the book from an online retail, and this is my journey down its pages, straight from the heart. STRICTLY HONEST and UNBIASED.
