‘You could lose someone down there, couldn’t you? Anyone could get buried under the concrete slab, and no one would even know!’
The Beauregarde women have lived in the shadow of The Seminary for four generations. And there is nothing conventional about Marcela, or her family.
When the decadent and obsessive Gordana acquires the iconic Sydney property and invites a television crew to film the building’s transformation into a magnificent showpiece, strangers suddenly penetrate Marcela’s world, each with a dark secret of their own.
But Marcela conceals a sinister bond which inextricably ties her to the derelict estate, holding the power to not only unravel Gordana’s grand designs, but expose bloodstained treachery, long-buried betrayals and lies.
A decadent and eccentric tableau of theatre and treachery, old secrets and betrayals; exploring friendship, guilt and obsession … slipping between characters to gradually reveal a century-old mystery.
Its that time! Its been a minute since ive done a review and I plan to take a step back actually after this month and spend some time focusing on books that are still on my shelf. Before I do that though I just wanna brag about this great book and this amazing author!
So this book is set in Australia during 1990 and it essentially includes an old house and lots of secrets!
I absolutely love books like this and movies for that fact that involve an old house, secrets, lies and betrayals! The old house sets the perfect vibe for the whole story!
I love how well put together this book is as well! The cover is eye catching and interesting! Inside the book everything is well put together and organized (which feeds my perfectionist soul).
Annnnnddd are you guys ready for this?! The author has included her own drawings inside the book and they are incredibly talented!!!!
I really did love this story with the twists and that ending was just crazy this author kept me interested till the very end and it seems like lately I keep reading books that don’t hold my attention for very long so hopefully this book is a sign in a better direction.
This book was the perfect October read with all the dark and menacing vibes I just wish it would’ve rained here in California that would have been too perfect to read this book while it was raining.
My only complaint is the multiple POVS I am not a huge fan of multiple POVS I don’t mind them when its only two characters but anymore than that and I think the story gets to be to much.
Eventually it gets easier to catch on to the switching but it does become exhausting after awhile and I think it changes the reading experience.
Don’t get me wrong I see the need for all the different characters; however, I think they still could’ve been placed in the story without giving the audience all of their perspectives.
Overall a wonderful book I definitely recommend you check it out I will be looking out for future books from this author! We still have some time in the month of October and I think this was the perfect October read!
This book is available on amazon and online at barnes and noble!
I especially recommend it for my Australian friends I think you guys will get so much enjoyment out of it!
I truly loved all the twists and turns! Im not sure is there is another book after this one but it feels like there could be so I am excited to see what this author does next!
A big thank you to the author for sending me a copy for review I truly enjoyed it!
