The Place That Never Existed by Jim Ody @Jim_Ody_Author

Book Description:

For Paul and Debbie it was meant to be the happiest time of their lives. A small village wedding in front of their family and friends, followed by a quiet honeymoon in Devon.

Not everyone had been happy to see them together. A woman from their past refused to accept it. Her actions over the previous year had ended in tragedy, and had almost broken the happy couple apart.

Now, away from it all in a picturesque log cabin, Paul and Debbie look forward to time spent alone together… But she has found out where they are, and she will stop at nothing to make sure that the marriage is over… forever.

But Huntswood Cove isn’t just a beautiful Devonshire fishing town, it has its own secret. Recently, people have begun to disappear, only to turn up dead in suspicious circumstances. The locals begin to question what is going on. Soon everything strange points to the abandoned house in the woods. The house that nobody wants to talk about.

To them, it is the place that never existed.

My Thoughts:

Something I have come to learn with this author’s books is always to expect the unexpected and this couldn’t be more true with this book!

The story mainly focuses on Paul and Debbie who are recently married and have booked a cabin in an idyllic part of Devon. It turns out that not only are they in danger from someone back home but also where they are on their honeymoon! Huntswood Cove maybe on the surface a lovely little fishing town, but the residents we get to meet had alarm bells ringing in my head.

Things start to take a darker turn when Paul and Debbie stumble on a derelict house in the woods. There is something sinister a foot and to be honest, things get a little bit crazy from this point onwards. You won’t get any spoilers from me but it ramped up the fun level for me.

The Place that Never Existed was an entertaining read which grabbed my attention. I enjoyed the threads to do with someone from Paul and Debbie’s past as well as the strange going ons in the small coastal town. The story takes some unexpected turns where you do need to suspend your belief somewhat but this actually added to it’s appeal and had me racing through the pages towards the end to see just what secrets this community were hiding! You won’t be disappointed when you find out!
