I am very excited (and chuffed) to say that I have received my first reads of 2015 this week. Courtesy of Penguin UK and Headline via Netgalley I have been given these two wee beauts to read and review. The Blubs are courtesy of Amazon and both books will be published on 15th January 2015. As always the reviews will be posted on Jewellbooks.
The Girl in the Photograph by Kate Riordan
‘I could never have imagined all that would happen in those few short months and how, by the end of them, my life would have altered irrevocably and forever’!
It’s the summer of 1933 and Alice Eveleigh has arrived at Fiercombe Manor in disgrace. Hiding her shame in this isolated house concealed within a Gloucestershire valley in the care of housekeeper, Mrs Jelphs, Alice soon begins to sense that something isn’t quite right within the walls of this beautiful manor – for one thing she is being watched . . .
There are secrets at Fiercombe that those who remain there are determined to keep. Tragedy haunts the empty rooms and foreboding hangs heavy in the stifling heat. Traces of the previous occupant, Elizabeth Stanton, are everywhere, and Alice discovers Elizabeth’s life eerily mirrors the path she herself is on.
The past is set to repeat its sorrows, and with devastating consequences.
