A mind-bending thriller full of spine-tingling Gothic overtones. Brilliant and gripping.
Gripping tension and more than a couple of twists… A five star read.
Beauty and Lace
After the violent death of her husband, Callie Jones retreats to a cottage in the grounds of an old mansion in Tasmania. The relative remoteness of the place and the wild beauty of the Tasmanian landscape are a balm to her shattered nerves and the locals seem friendly, particularly horseman Connor Atherton and his siblings at the nearby property, Calico Lodge.
But all is not well: The old mansion has a sinister past, one associated with witchcraft and murder. As Callie is threatened by odd events in the night and strange dreams overtake her sleep, she begins to doubt her own sanity. What’s really going on beneath the surface of this apparently peaceful town? Are her friends and neighbours really who they seem? As events escalate, Callie starts to realise that the mansion may hold the key to unlocking the mystery, but the truth might have as much power to destroy as it does to save.
Brilliantly plotted suspense novel. I really enjoyed Sarah’s writing and she managed to deal out her cards in a very satisfying way. This is quite a spooky Australian gothic tale with plenty of murder and creepy happenings in the night.
A freaking awesome thriller with so much suspense my nails are bitten to the quick, but I couldn’t put it down, I couldn’t even hide my face in my pillow I just had to keep reading, I had to find out what happened next and wow it was so worth it.
Sarah Barrie is an amazingly talented author who would keep any reader right on the edge of her seat, she certainly did that for me.

A gripping thriller with enticingly creepy gothic overtones. The perfect read for a cold winter’s evening, with an stunning twist at the end I didn’t see coming!
