I found this to be a great novel that grabbed my attention immediately and glued me to my chair as I turned the pages. When Emily visited her aunt and uncle at their farm, the Merryweather Lodge, which wasn’t located that far from Stonehenge, she never thought her life would be forever change after that visit. I loved the storyline and enjoyed the ominous feel I got throughout the story. I love paranormal suspense stories and Ms. Holyoak definitely delivered with this first book in the Merryweather Lodge series. I’d highly recommend this spooky story to other paranormal lovers and I eagerly can’t wait to read the rest of the series. Well done, Ms. Holyoak!
Emily couldn’t wait to visit her Aunt and Uncle in their quaint and mysterious little cottage near Stonehenge. But it doesn’t take her long to realize that her fairytale kingdom has a sinister twist. One night in her attic bedroom she is confronted by an evil entity that would taunt her for the rest of her stay and long after that. Who is this hideous creature and what does she want? When Emily meets the gorgeous Jonathan McArthur she is infatuated, consumed with lust and an odd familiarity, as if they had met before. Will he be coaxed by the peculiar old gypsy to enter the dreaded woodlot? Can the bloody ancient curse be removed before it’s too late? And will Emily ever get to feel his lips on hers? A chilling tale of love, passion, sorcery and sacrifice; laced with mystery and tied with humor. Inspired by the author’s own experiences in a remote little cottage near Stonehenge.
