Review: The shadow guest

The shadow guest The shadow guest by Hillary Waugh
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I knew of Hillary Waugh as the author of policeprocedurals and that's what I expected this book to be. However, it is a very different book with just that touch of the supernatural that sent shivers down my spine. Read it in the dark of the night as rain poured outside and it added to that delicious creepy feeling.

Highly recommended.

First Line: Though I am well inland now, when the wind blows stiffly over the moors and the low dark puffs of cumulus roll across the sky, or when the rain beats its heavy, steady siege and the dampness crawls into my clothes with me, I swear I smell the sea and hear the gulls again.

  1. If you recommend so highly, neer, I will look into it. I have not read anything by this author although I have another one of his on my list to look for.

    1. Please do read it Tracy because I liked it a lot. Perhaps reading it on a dark wintry night also helped:)
