Reviews of this Book

‘The writing is taut and fluid. Both the atmosphere of the old house and the wider family dynamics are evoked with skill. Whatever one thinks of a place harbouring the spirit of past deeds this story could throw shade over certainties. Recommended, but exercise caution if reading after dark.’ —Jackie Law, neverimitate

‘There are some genuine spine chilling moments in this book which made the hairs on the back of my neck stand up, which is of course testimony to some great writing skills! There is a particular scene involving a mirror which had me steadfastly refusing to look into my vintage dressing table mirror for a good few hours I can tell you! If you’re in the market for a traditional haunted house mystery to have you listening just that little bit more closely to the creaking of your house at night … do yourself a favour and buy yourself a copy of Haverscroft. You won’t regret it.’ —Amanda Chatterton, Bookish Chat

‘★★★★ Haverscroft is a very modern ghost/psychological story. It’s written in an apparently effortless and easy style, which I’m sure this was a lot of hard work to achieve. The uncomplicated prose allows the mood and atmosphere of the novel to seep into your pores – this a genuinely gripping tale.’ —Paul Burke, NB Magazine

‘If you love disturbingly undercurrent to your reads with a creativity that will send your imagination into overdrive, this is the read for you! Although do not read in bed, I REPEAT, do not read in bed because the twistingly creepy plot that will have you checking under the bed!’ —The Reading Closet

‘This story gripped me from the start, and had me reading late into the night, despite warnings not too. It’s a tense and thrilling tale culminating in a nail-biting, edge of your seat denouement where all the different strands of mystery are woven together, and all of the family skeletons come out of the cupboard!’ —Emma’s Book Blog
