Spare Room by Dreda Say Mitchell @DredaMitchell @Bloodhoundbook

Book Description:

Home Is Where The Nightmare Is

Beautiful double room to let to single person 

Lisa, a troubled young woman with a past, can’t believe her luck when she finds a beautiful room to rent in a large house. The live-in owners are a kind and welcoming couple. Everything is fine until she finds a suicide note hidden in her room. But when the couple insist this man didn’t exist and that Lisa is their first tenant, Lisa begins to doubt herself.

Compelled to uncover the secrets of the man who lived in the room before her, Lisa is alarmed when increasingly disturbing incidents start to happen. Someone doesn’t want Lisa to find out the truth.

As the four walls of this house and its secrets begin to close in on Lisa, she descends into a hellish hall of mirrors where she’s not sure what’s real and what’s not as she claws her way towards the truth…

This room has already claimed one victim?

Is it about to take another?

My Thoughts:

From page one, I was well and truly gripped to this novel only putting it down to go to sleep and picking it up the next morning to finish it.

Right from the start it’s obvious that something has happened in the house that Lisa finds herself renting a room in. I was as intrigued as her when she uncovers a suicide letter and wanted to know more about the man who felt he obviously had no other way out other than to take his own life.

Lisa is a slightly unstable character who has had mental health issues in the past. I was just as intrigued about her and her past. As the reader gets further into the story, the more things start to unfold with some very unexpected turns.

Spare Room is an enthralling and addictive read that I couldn’t get enough of. To say this isn’t the authors usual genre, really doesn’t show as she writes with a wealth of experience and one that is certainly going to appeal to lovers of psychological thrillers. A highly exhilarating, nail biter of a read.

Spare Room is available to purchase from Amazon. (Please note that link used is an affiliate link).
