Summary

Brought to you by Penguin.

We’ve all done things we’re ashamed of...


When Ava arrives at Brodie’s Watch, she thinks she has found the perfect place to hide from her past. Something terrible happened, something she is deeply ashamed of, and all she wants is to forget.

But the old house on the hill both welcomes and repels her and Ava quickly begins to suspect she is not alone. Either that or she is losing her mind.

The house is full of secrets, but is the creeping sense of danger coming from within its walls, or from somewhere else entirely?

good

kept my interest as I wanted a scientific explanation as there usually is from Tess....but there was none! maybe left to reader to decide on what was at play?

Not her best

I love tess gerritsen books and have read them all. I usually love her stand alone novels, but the story of the sea captain was just a bit far fetched, it felt like she was trying to replicate a Du Maurier book but the suspense was just not believable. It’s the first time I have though about giving up and not finishing one of her books. Narrator is great, just not great material

A new type of story from a beloved author

I wasn't expecting the sexy ghost story, but was pleasantly surprised. It's a departure from the usual Tess Gerritsen novels but equally as fun to read. Clever and keeps you guessing!

Huge fan bit disappointed

I normally love Tess Gerritsen's books but I found this story a bit of a weird one. The sex scenes were cringe worthy (especially the ghost related ones), but maybe if I'd read the book myself rather than listened to it, it may have been better. I didn't enjoy the narrator's voice or tone throughout, so that added to my dislike. I admire the author's willingness to try new things though.

Terrible story

I used to love Tess Gerritsen but she seems to have run out of ideas. I found it very predictable, usually I can’t guess the ending but this one was clear from about halfway through.

The characters are pretty awful, luckily it had a cat. He was the best.
