I am delighted to be part of the weekend blitz for The Forgotten Room by Ann Troup.
Can the past ever be forgotten?
As soon as nurse Maura Lyle sets foot inside the foreboding Essen Grange, she feels shivers ripple down her spine. And the sense of unease only increases when she meets her new patient, Gordon Henderson.
Drawn into the Henderson family’s tangled web of secrets and betrayals, Maura can ignore the danger lurking behind every door no longer. Even the door she has been forbidden from opening…
Essen Grange is a house with dark and cruel intentions. But now that darkness has turned on her, can Maura escape before it’s too late?
The chilling new novel from the bestselling author of The Lost Child and The Silent Girls. Perfect for fans of Erin Kelly, Claire Mackintosh and Tracy Buchanan.
This was my first Ann Troup novel, and it didn’t disappoint. It was dark and mysterious with unique plot.
The story-line was well paced for the post part and intricately woven together like a lace shawl. There were several dead ends before you finally reached the conclusion and I definitely didn’t see that coming.
The characters, although in abundance, were well developed. However at times it was a little hard to keep track of them and whether or not they were responsible or just another victim. As for the depiction of the old house, it was just the right level of creepy and set the scene perfectly.
I was completely hooked with this book and kept trying to work out how it would all end. Just to say I was completely wrong but nevertheless the ending was brilliant. I would highly recommend this book.
Many thanks to Ann, Jenny and Neverland Blog Tours for my advanced reader copy and inviting me on the tour!
