I was made aware of this debut novella via Facebook and read it in one sitting it is a brilliant read. Although Horror genre I think it will also appeal to readers of Crime Fiction.

My rating: 5 of 5 stars
This is a debut novella in the Horror genre from a fledgling author with obvious potential.
Bea has bought and renovated a cottage and is hosting a Christmas come housewarming party with a group of friends. Everything is ready and Bea is snuggled up on the sofa waiting for them to arrive when a knock on the door sets in motion something that will affect all of them forever.
Usually with a novella we don’t get much insight into the characters but this, although short, describes the characters very well so we get to know them through the story.
It is a brilliant, adrenaline pumping read full of twists and turns with superstition interwoven along with secrets. What dark secrets is each of them hiding?
A fast paced read full of surprises and shocks all the way to the unexpected ending. Fantastic debut from an author we will be hearing more of I am sure. 5 stars from me.
