Haverscroft by S.A. Harris

Hello. It’s been a while, right? What happened at the end of last year? I stopped recording books I read and pretty much lost my blogging groove. I started learning Welsh.

If anyone knows how to get the balance of meeting goals and relaxing please let me know

I have a confession to make, I read this book for Halloween and loved it, but I didn’t make notes and when I tried to review it later I was stuck. But it’s come to my attention that the last review on GoodReads was a bad one so I’d like to end the year on a high note. And feel less guilty for not reviewing this book when I said I would. Sorry…

Review: Haverscroft by S.A.Harris

Haverscroft

“Kate Keeling leaves all she knows and moves to Haverscroft House in an attempt to salvage her marriage. Little does she realise, Haverscroft’s dark secrets will drive her to question her sanity, her husband and fatally engulf her family unless she can stop the past repeating itself. Can Kate keep her children safe and escape Haverscroft in time, even if it will end her marriage?

Haverscroft is a gripping and chilling dark tale, a modern ghost story that will keep you turning its pages late into the night.” – from GoodReads

My thoughts

This book was so good that I didn’t even remember to make notes as I was reading, I was so absorbed. That’s my excuse and I’m sticking with it.

I loved Haverscroft, what drew me to this book was the gothic horror, and I enjoyed the descriptions of the house was. The tension and atmosphere throughout draws you in and the enigma about what happened at the house, what secrets are haunting the place?

Kate Keeling is a character I came to love and to feel sympathy for, she’s just trying to recover from a breakdown and start anew again but the problems she faces do not help. All the characters are a delight to read about.

The gothic tension in this novel is perfect and continues throughout the book. If you love gothic horror novels this is for you. Such a good book I wish I could find words to express how much I loved it.

Looking forward to more from this author.
