I was made aware of this debut novella via Facebook and read it in one sitting it is a brilliant read. Although Horror genre I think it will also appeal to readers of Crime Fiction.

Scary Christmas Novella. Would you confess your worst sin to save your Soul? What about your friend’s Souls?

Only, the evening does not go as planned… The book has been opened, and the game has begun… A terrifying night of confessions, secrets and lies. Will they all make it out alive? *this Novella does contain some bad language

My Review

My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This is a debut novella in the Horror genre from a fledgling author with obvious potential.

Bea has bought and renovated a cottage and is hosting a Christmas come housewarming party with a group of friends. Everything is ready and Bea is snuggled up on the sofa waiting for them to arrive when a knock on the door sets in motion something that will affect all of them forever.

Usually with a novella we don’t get much insight into the characters but this, although short, describes the characters very well so we get to know them through the story.

It is a brilliant, adrenaline pumping read full of twists and turns with superstition interwoven along with secrets. What dark secrets is each of them hiding?

A fast paced read full of surprises and shocks all the way to the unexpected ending. Fantastic debut from an author we will be hearing more of I am sure. 5 stars from me.
