Synopsis from Goodreads:
Sue Wallman’s most spine-tingling thriller yet! Every winter, three families gather in an old house to celebrate the New Year. This year, 15-year-old Leah and the other kids discover that the house has a dark past. As they dig into the history, terrible things start happening, and if Leah isn’t careful, this New Year might be her last.
- Animal death
Every year Leah spends New Year with her parents, cousins and aunts at Roeshot House, it’s always been a place they’ve been happy and made happy memories. This year is different though, the original owner confessed to the death and burial of her sister in Roeshot’s gardens. Tatum, daughter of a family friend who has joined them wants to make a documentary and investigate the event. Things get weirder from there, with possible ghost sightings, accurate predictions and accidents around the house. If Leah isn’t careful, she might not make it out alive.
I was hooked from the start, and I mean properly hooked. I love a good thriller and this one ticks all the right boxes. It’s Gripping, tense and nerve wracking from start to finish. Sue does a brilliant job of keeping your attention on a specific character, completely throwing you off the scent so you miss all the signs that are right in front of you. Leaving you questioning of you ever truly know someone. And that ending, I didn’t see that ending coming. At. All! I know this is a short review, it’s a short book and I don’t want to spoil it for you. I can’t recommend this book enough!
