Secrets of Hallstead House by Amy M Reade
When Macy went to work at Hallstead House as a personal nurse to Alexandria Hallstead she was trying to come to terms with her parents death in an horrific accident which caused both of their deaths. But Macy discovered more than just being there as a nurse.
I cannot say what else she discovered or that would be giving one heck of a spoiler.
What I can say is, this book had me gripped from cover to cover and I had to stay with it until the end.
Some did not welcome Macy into the Hallstead fold and many creepy things and terrible threats were made on her person. Just who, or which was causing her to fear for her life?
She got offered another job by the agency she worked for, so now this left her in a dilemma as to, should she go? or should she stay?
Alexandria Hallstead was a sweet lovely old lady recovering from a hip operation hence why Macy was there. Or was it?
I've not heard of this author until now.
I already requested to read this from Net galley and was accepted by Kensington Books then I saw the blog tour for it, so I hopped on that too. I would love to get the word out and encourage you all to read this book, you won't regret it. It had me guessing right to the end.
"You are not wanted here. Go away from Hallstead Island or you will be very sorry you stayed." Macy Stoddard had hoped to ease the grief of losing her parents in a fiery car crash by accepting a job as a private nurse to the wealthy and widowed Alexandria Hallstead. But her first sight of Summerplace is of a dark and forbidding home. She quickly finds its winding halls and shadowy rooms filled with secrets and suspicions. Alex seems happy to have Macy's help, but others on the island, including Alex's sinister servants and hostile relatives, are far less welcoming. Watching eyes, veiled threats...slowly, surely, the menacing spirit of Hallstead Island closes in around Macy. And she can only wonder if her story will become just one of the many secrets of Hallstead House...
