A book deal to die for.
Five attendees are selected for a month-long writing retreat at the remote estate of Roza Vallo, the controversial high priestess of feminist horror. Alex, a struggling writer, is thrilled.
Upon arrival, they discover they must complete an entire novel from scratch, and the best one will receive a seven-figure publishing deal. Alex’s long-extinguished dream now seems within reach.
But then the women begin to die.
Trapped, terrified yet still desperately writing, it is clear there is more than a publishing deal at stake at Blackbriar Estate. Alex must confront her own demons – and finish her novel – to save herself.
I loved the sound of this fresh and original idea for a story, all about five women who attend a writing retreat with a famous writer hosting it. Each of them must complete an entire novel and the winner gets a fantastic prize, but is foul play at act? each of the women are caught up into something they never could ever imagine, when each of them die, the others are suspicious. It was a great read and kept me entertained, but I did guess what was going to happen and I guessed fairly early on. It was full of tension, suspicion and a great bunch of characters. I will be intrigued to see what Julia the author writes about in her next story.
I received an ARC copy of this book for an honest review.
