The People Before By Charlotte Northedge

The People Before By Charlotte Northedge

What if your dream house became your worst nightmare?

Jess and her husband need a new start. So when the chance to buy a rambling old house in the Suffolk countryside comes up, they leap at it.

But not everyone in Suffolk is welcoming. The locals know a secret about the Maple House, and soon, Jess realises they’ve made a huge mistake.

Something bad happened in that house. Something nobody wants to talk about.

Something to do with the people before…

My Thoughts:

I loved the sound of this book and when reading it you can definitely feel the atmosphere is tense and creepy. A family decide to make a fresh start in Maple House, but what has happened there before, why are people not very welcoming? strange things are going on and Jess and her family don’t know what to do. Will they uncover the deadly truth of the house? I have to say for me it was a slow burner but when it got going it was good. It sets the scene at the start with things happening and going wrong and then you in for a hell of a ride with twists and turns at every corner where you least expect them. I had no clue were this story was going to lead and I could feel the tension and unease just sitting reading it. The ending left me stunned. I cannot wait to read more of Charlotte’s books in the future.

I received an ARC copy of this book for an honest review.
