Secrets, lies and evil lie in wait.
Ivy and Georgie have secrets and pasts riddled with shame and betrayal. On a cold February day, both women leave home hoping to rebuild their lives, not knowing their worlds will soon collide.
When fate eventually brings them to Tenley House, the home of a bitter, domineering matriarch who controls her fickle son and terrorises her adoptive granddaughter, the women find themselves in danger. Behind the facade of propriety, amidst secrets and lies, the truth will unfold when evil is awakened…
Hiding in plain sight and sworn to avenge the wrongs of the past, something stalks the corridors of Tenley. It listens and waits patiently, lurking in shadows, tormenting its prey and when the time is right, begins to strike down the occupants of Tenley, one by one…
Deceptively dark with a creeping sense of menace, this is the tale of two young women drawn together by circumstance and heartbreak.
This is another story with a wonderful setting of a big house which seems to be under a cloud of which seems to store bad luck for it’s residents. Who doesn’t love a story with that sort of eeriness about it and the more secrets the better?
Ivy and Georgie at first seem like very different women. They are both women with troubled pasts, where as Georgie is full of life and fun, Ivy is a lot more reserved. As I got to know them both better though, they have a lot more in common than I first believed. They will do whatever it takes to get what they want.
The author certainly keeps the reader on their toes with this novel. It’s like a calm before a storm. I knew something was brewing but not quite what or when it would hit me. I thought I was very clever thinking I had it all worked out, only to be well and truly wrong.
Death’s Dark Veil is a compelling story that gently drew me in and then grabbed hold. It did take me a little while at the beginning to settle in until I got used to the different characters but after that there was no holding me back. The story gets darker and more twisted the further into it you get. Georgie is very much the star of the story and thought she was a brilliant character. If you love a good dark and sinister read, then highly recommend this one.

Her previous book drew my head in.. This seems to do it slowly… I am very careful placing this in my TBR.. But darker reads are causing nightmares. Sheesh the aftereffects of this flu amongst other things. Fab review…
