Blog tour & review: Winterscroft by Anita Waller.



 My Review


Having never read any of this authors books before and having an opportunity to do so now, I was eager to start this.

The author starts the story off with quite a heart rendering punch. An accident. 
This affects this Christian family enormously as you can imagine. With a fatality of the daughter Lavender.
Read that name and I dare you to not get a whiff of the heady scent of Lavender in your subconscious mind. I know I did.

Things seem to be plodding on until (not going to name names as don't want to spoil it) there is planning for a wedding. The wedding is taking place but it's Lavenders fiancé who is now getting married.

Things start to heat up with the creepiness of this story that will either blow your mind or make you run and hide under the duvet.

Very well written. Very atmospheric.

Thank you to Bloodhound books for my gifted copy

When the beautiful Lavender is killed in a tragic car accident her family and fiancee Matt are left devastated. As the year’s pass and wounds begin to heal Matt, who has remained close to Lavenders family, meets Beth and falls in love again. When the happy couple announce their engagement it sparks a series of bizarre and disturbing events. Then when Matt and Beth make plans to wed at Lavenders family home, Winterscroft, the frightening truth becomes apparent. Lavender is back. And she is not happy. From the bestselling author of 34 Days comes a tale of love, death and revenge.

About the Author:


Anita was born in Sheffield, South Yorkshire and has lived all her life there. She has three adult children and seven grandchildren ranging in age from 9 months to 21 years. Anita and Dave have been married almost 49 years!
She wrote Beautiful in 1985 and had it accepted for publication. They were the contract stage when the publishing house went into liquidation.
Like many another book it ended up in the loft until two years ago when she resurrected it, retyped all 100,000 words (it was orginally written on an Amstrad 8256 and all she had was a hard copy!) and sent it off to Bloodhound Books.
She is now retired from my life of being a Patchwork Tutor and HGV driver’s wife and concentrates on patchwork for the pleasure of it and writing. She started writing at around the age of 8 – she clearly remembers writing ‘novels’ at that age which were actually short stories split into chapters!
Anita’s genre is murder – but murder with a good reason behind it!
Winterscroft is out now and available from Amazon UK and Amazon US.
