Official Blurb:

While renovating her Victorian home, Ana Clementine finds an ornate door buried under forty years of earth. Once she restores it to the attic, she starts hearing whispers, her loving husband becomes a stranger, and her baby daughter learns a chilling new word. Maybe Ana has unlocked the house’s secrets. Or maybe she’s becoming just a little unhinged herself.

My Thoughts:

Oh my goodness, this was chilling!
I’m used to thrillers, but I don’t read many supernatural thrillers, which is what this is, and it had the hairs on my arms standing up to attention!
Ana moves to a new home in her husband’s hometown, but she is experiencing some terrifying situations within days of moving. It was mainly the ones with her husband that had my heart beating. You could tell it wasn’t who he was, making his actions even more perilous.
I’ve not been able to stop thinking about this book since finishing it. I’m not sure if it was just the perfect length as a short story or whether it warranted being a full-length over. I know it left me wanting more regardless.
This was a great teaser to this author’s writing, so I will definitely be giving one of her full-length books a go soon!
