To coincide with the paperback release, I am taking part in the blog tour to help promote this book. I read an ebook copy earlier in the year.

‘Mysterious, atmospheric and chilling’ ANITA FRANK



When Henry Fox is found dead in his ancestral home in Cornwall, the police rule it a suicide, but his pregnant wife, Josie, believes it was murder. Desperate to make sense of Henry’s death she embarks on a quest to learn the truth, all under the watchful eyes of Henry’s overbearing mother. Josie soon finds herself wrestling against the dark history of Helygen House and ghosts from the past that refuse to stay buried.


New bride Eliza arrives at Helygen House with high hopes for her marriage. Yet when she meets her new mother-in-law, an icy and forbidding woman, her dreams of a new life are dashed. And when Eliza starts to hear voices in the walls of the house, she begins to fear for her sanity and her life.

Can Josie piece together the past to make sense of her present, or will the secrets of Helygen House and its inhabitants forever remain a mystery?

My Thoughts:

I haven’t read a book by this author before. This is her first one in the ‘historical mystery’ genre and I found it hard to put down.

It does flit between different time periods as we meet various members of the Fox family who live at Helygen House. But dark sinister things happen at this property.

It was a most compelling read that I highly enjoyed.
