A gripping mystery with a classic feel: And Then There Were None meets The Silent Companions.

Winter 1917. As the First World War enters its most brutal phase, back home in England, everyone is seeking answers to the darkness that has seeped into their lives. 

At Blackwater Abbey, on an island off the Devon coast, Lord Highmount has arranged a spiritualist gathering to contact his two sons who were lost in the conflict. But as his guests begin to arrive, it gradually becomes clear that each has something they would rather keep hidden. Then, when a storm descends on the island, the guests will find themselves trapped. Soon one of their number will die. 

For Blackwater Abbey is haunted in more ways than one . . .

An unrelentingly gripping mystery packed with twists and turns, A House of Ghosts is the perfect chilling read this winter.

REVIEW – I was looking for a thrilling and haunting read to keep me company as the nights have been drawing in, and this book proved perfect for that. A historical novel, fulls of secrets, and tension and hauntingly creepy passages both in the book and in Blackwater Abbey. I felt the historical context of the book added to the creepy-ness factor and the description was brilliant. The only thing that did ot give this book 5 stars for me was it took me a couple of attempts to get into the story, i did start it and had to put it down, i just could not connect with the book on the first try, but after leaving it a bit and taking another dive into the text i really enjoyed it.
