⭐️⭐️⭐️💫 Ailsa Calder has inherited half of a house. The other half belongs to a man who disappeared without a trace twenty-seven years ago–her father. Leaving London behind to settle the inheritance, Ailsa returns to the manor, nestled amongst the craggy peaks of the Scottish Highlands, joined by the half-sister who’s practically a stranger to her. Ailsa can’t escape the claustrophobic feeling that the house itself watches her–as if her dramatic past hungers to consume her. When the first nighttime intruder shows up and the locals in the isolated community pry into her plans for the manor, Ailsa grows terrified that escaping the beautiful old home will cost her everything.
For me, this book was definitely a slow burner. It took me a bit to get into it, but once I did, I was hooked. I really enjoyed the creepy feel to the story and the elements of a psychological thriller. I’m not sure if it’s just me though, but I didn’t really get the “time folding” elements of the story. I found that really confusing and I didn’t quite grasp what was meant by it. The ending was kind of disappointing for me. It was a conclusive ending which was great but the actual conclusion was a let down for me personally. I was hoping for a huge twist or a surprise ending but that didn’t come. It was quite a predictable ending. But I really enjoyed the storyline and the build up, so I’d definitely recommend it!
