Publisher Description

WELCOME TO THE ANCHORAGE, FOR A HONEYMOON YOU'LL NEVER FORGET . . .

Charles and Grace wanted a quiet staycation honeymoon, but when their train terminates early due to a storm up ahead, they wonder if they made the wrong decision. Forced to take shelter in the nearest seaside town, Saltwater, they discover that there is only one guesthouse left. Unlike the rest of Saltwater, The Anchorage is entirely deserted.

That night, with the storm howling relentlessly, Grace is woken by a child crying. She is haunted by the sound, until Charles convinces her it was only her imagination. But the next day, she finds a warning scrawled in the guest book: Leave now. Do not trust them.

As the storm rages on, phone lines are down, transport links cut off. Grace is desperate to leave, but Charles remains unaffected by the eerie stillness of the house. Is it just Grace's imagination or do the owners, and Charles, have something to hide?

THANK YOU FOR STAYING AT THE ANCHORAGE. WE HOPE YOU'LL BE BACK SOON...

Perfect for fans of Harriet Tyce, Lisa Jewell and Ruth Ware.

BOURNEMOUTH SUN ,

Very enjoyable

At first I thought this would be so predictable, haunted guest house, young couple sheltering from the storm...but it actually unravelled in the most surprising way.
The book stays with you whilst you are reading it- it makes you keen to get back to see what happens next
Ideal for lockdown Reading- easy and enjoyable
I recommend this book

Keeps you guessing - great read

Well -written story about a couple on their honeymoon that isn’t going to plan. It keeps you guessing as to what is really happening right to the very end. Well-formed characters and a fast-paced/enjoyable read. Great book.

The Guest Book

Charlie and Grace find themselves stranded in a small village due to a bad storm, en route to St Ives for their much anticipated honeymoon. They book into the only a available hotel, The Anchorage. Much to their surprise, Graces husband had spent many a childhood holiday here. Their short stay brings back far from happy memories for Charlie her husband. Mother Nature and a hostile reception from the locals adds to a claustrophobic atmosphere .
Repetitive in parts, and spoiled by poor quality proof reading.....a maddening over use of hyphenated word.
