Suzannah and Noel are finally getting the child they’ve so desperately wanted, and nine-year-old Orchid calls them Mummy and Daddy from the start. She’s a precocious child who is certainly a bit different than what Suzannah was expecting, and she will admit she’s a bit disappointed she’s especially close to Noel but glad that he’s such a doting father.
Things start to go from odd to drastically weird after Orchid moves in and Noel isn’t much of a sounding board for Suzannah, he thinks Suzannah’s imagination is running wild. Thankfully she has her best friend Lila to talk to about all the odd things that are happening around the house since Orchid moved in. When things start to get dangerous, will she have Noel’s support to figure out what is going on with the house and Orchid?
I don’t want to say too much about the book and spoil anything for other readers. Dounaeva has made the perfect setup for a creepy thriller/mystery and once I started reading, I was hooked, and read this in one sitting. In addition to a fantastically creepy setting, the characters and storyline were wonderful. Such an incredibly fun read!
