What more do you need for a mysterious tale 😊 I absolutely loved this book, I couldn’t wait to sit down and read more and find out what had happened to Natalie O’Connor.
There are a few strange and omnious characters residing in the sleepy village of Shanamore. And, I couldn’t help but accuse everyone. I loved the setting, it made it more creepy. If this was set in a busy bustling city, I don’t think we would have got creepy vibe to it. Excellent scene setting.
The chapters are set out in a video recording format. Rewind, Fast Forward, Play and Pause. I found this a clever way to present the story, and it gives us a basis of the timeline within the story.
This story develops to be something very sinister, (well come on it does start with a murder 😊) but, we do discover things about the the characters that are a bit disturbing along the way. And, it all adds to the creepy brilliance of this book.
I highly recommend you buy this book. Out Today 22nd August 2019
