A Gingerbread House

An invitation you can’t refuse. You should . . .

When shy, lonely Ivy meets a woman who claims to be her long-lost sister, she knows it’s too good to be true. She decides to trust Kate anyway. She wants a family. She wants someone to love.

She’s making a mistake.

Ivy enters Kate’s fairytale cottage, deep in the heart of Scotland . . . and she doesn’t come out.

She’s the first to go missing.

She won’t be the last.

Meanwhile, in another part of the forest, Tash’s journey is just beginning . . .

My Review:

A slow burn thriller about Tash as she learns and tries to correct what her family has done.  It is a little confusing at first. It’s told in alternating perspectives that through much of the novel seem unrelated, but eventually they converge. 

It’s a little bit of a Fairytale retelling as we have women searching for what is missing in their life and this idyllic home.  Even before I knew what was driving the story I kept screaming, in my head of course, what are you doing. I don’t want to tell too much as I think the less you know as you read the better off you’ll be. 

The book is creepy at times.  While not for the faint at heart, it is a unique story I haven’t seen done before.  If you like slow burn thrillers, I’d give this one a try.
