I’m excited to be participating in the Whisper Cottage blog tour. I’m loving all of these spooky indie books that I’m getting to read. So let’s get to the review.
How well do you really know your neighbor? Stina and Jack move to the country to start a new life. Their new neighbor, Mrs. Barley, quickly become a friend to the young couple. But then Stina sees a mysterious figure in the window and things begin to unravel. There are strange noises at night and Mrs. Barley starts to become erratic. Deep secrets come out and life will never be the same.
My thoughts on Whisper Cottage
Whisper Cottage is spooky. It’s a bit slow in the beginning, with a bit of unnecessary back story, but then it starts to pick up.
The tension in the book builds slowly, but by the end it had me on the edge of my seat. I couldn’t decide if I trusted Mrs. Barley or not. One minute she was a sweet old lady, and the next she had a sinister way about her. She was the most complex character in the book, for sure.
*mild spoiler alert*
I was hooked on the supernatural vibes of Whisper Cottage and I couldn’t wait to get to the end to finally get my answers. But then at the end there was nothing supernatural at play. There were some shocking reveals, but they were all very much human. I was so disappointed because the synopsis hinted at supernatural occurrences. But it didn’t deliver on that front. The overall story was worth the read though.
My Rating: 3/5
