A bewitching and haunting story of family secrets – and the lengths some will go to protect them.

Ailsa Reid, caught up in a media trial, seeks refuge at her grandparents’ house in Fife. However, she discovers her grandmother, Moira, diagnosed with dementia, missing, and her grandfather, Rupert, seriously injured.

To find Moira, Ailsa must rely on her estranged mother, Rowan, who abandoned her at birth.

As they unravel the events leading to Moira’s disappearance, they delve into their family’s history, including a centuries-old curse tied to witches burned on a nearby hill. 

An ingenious puzzle, an extraordinary backdrop, an audacious solution.

Outside the island there is nothing: the world destroyed by a fog that swept the planet, killing anyone it touched. On the island: it is idyllic. 122 villagers and 3 scientists, living in peaceful harmony. The villagers are content to fish, farm and feast, to obey their nightly curfew, to do what they’re told by the scientists.

Until, to the horror of the islanders, one of their beloved scientists is found brutally stabbed to death.

Our Blog

We have read books for over thirty years (or over sixty years if you combine our ages!). We often read and review books ahead of publication thanks to the generosity of many authors and publishers that we are connected with which helps us to know what’s coming and what we should be putting in our boxes.

Possibly the most uplifting, hilarious and heart-warming book about death that I’ve ever read. Kirsty Greenwood’s books are always a treat and this is no exception. I absorbed the chapters every spare moment that I had – Kirsty’s ability to paint a heroine you will root […]
Holly Hepburn is well known for her contemporary uplifting stories and this is her first step into the genre of cosy crime and mystery. And she steps well! Holly Hepburn fans will not be disappointed as everything that we know and love about Holly’s writing style […]
