They said the dead can't hurt you . . . They were wrong. 

The House on Cold Hill is a chilling and suspenseful ghost story from the multi-million copy bestselling author of Dead Simple, Peter James. 

Moving from the heart of the city of Brighton and Hove to the Sussex countryside is a big undertaking for born townies, Ollie Harcourt, his wife, Caro, and their twelve-year-old daughter, Jade. But when they view Cold Hill House - a huge, dilapidated, Georgian mansion - they are filled with excitement. 

Despite the financial strain of the move, Ollie has dreamed of living in the country since he was a child, and with its acres of land, he sees Cold Hill House as a paradise for his animal-loving daughter, a base for his web-design business and a terrific long-term investment. Caro is less certain, and Jade is grumpy about being removed from all her friends. 

But within days of moving in, it soon becomes apparent that the Harcourt family aren't the only residents in the house. At first it is only a friend of Jade, talking to her on Facetime, who sees a spectral woman standing behind her. Then there are more sightings of her, as well as increasingly disturbing occurrences in the house.

Two weeks after moving in, Caro, out in the garden, is startled to see faces staring out of an upstairs window of the house. The window of a room which holds the secret to the house's dark history . . . a room which does not appear to exist . . . 


I simply HAD to share the news of this book on here because it sounds absolutely brilliant! It's different to my usual genre of chick-lit and romance books I know, but as you may have noticed, I am branching out and starting to read more genres that are new to me which is helping me really feel like im starting out all over again, re-discovering my already HUGE passion for books and reading.

Also, this book is out just in time for Halloween, so if you fancy a spooky read before hitting the festive books (come back soon for more posts on festive books!), then I highly recommend this one! I cant wait to read it myself because I just know I'm going to LOVE it!
