Hare’s Landing, West Cork. A house full of mystery…
Rachel Lambert leaves London afraid for her personal safety and determined to uncover the truth behind the sudden death of a homeless man with links to a country house hotel called Hare’s Landing.
New York-based crime reporter Caroline Kelly’s career is threatened by a lawsuit and she needs some thinking space away from her job. But almost as soon as she arrives, Hare’s Landing begins to reveal its own stories – a 30-year-old missing person’s case and the mysterious death of the hotel’s former owner.
As Rachel and Caroline join forces, it becomes clear that their investigations are intertwined – and that there is nothing more dangerous than the truth…

This is an eerie gothic cosy mystery/thriller. Very atmospheric and full of the spirits of the dead mixed with the lives of the living that you get chills when you’re reading it.
The plot twists are gripping and the narrative is immensely well put together so that it flows seamlessly.
I’d suggest if you’ve anything else to do, you put it aside , get yourself a drink by your side and settle down to read. Then do less important things later as you’re likely to be immersed in the slightly creepy world created in this book for a while! The house, the perfume the characters….perfect winter read.
Thanks to Anne Cater, the Author and publisher for the advanced reading copy of this book.
