The House Of Hidden Secrets
Author: CE Rose
The imposing gates of Ramsay Hall yawned open. As Serena and 4-year-old Lana walked up the long driveway, little did they know the dark secrets that lay within.
When Serena Green accepted the role of housekeeper for wealthy widower Hayden Ramsay, she never imagined her new home would be Ramsay Hall, an ancient, sprawling mansion in Northern England.
Serena quickly becomes an integral part of the household, making friends with Hayden’s younger son Hugh, despite Jack, his older brother’s, coldness towards her and Lana.
But the hall’s beautiful exterior hides many ugly secrets. Though Serena and Jack begin to grow closer, she’s confused by his behaviour around Lana. What is he guilty of? And is there more to their mother’s death than the Ramsay men will admit, even to themselves?
As the harrowing past of Ramsay Hall unravels, Serena fresh start becomes a fresh horror. She fears for her and Lana’s safety, but what are the bleak secrets in Serena’s own past?
This house is built on a lifetime of lies… and the truth might just bring the walls crashing down.
A twisty, gripping and utterly unputdownable new thriller that fans of Lisa Jewell, C.L. Taylor and Mark Edwards will love.
Serena has a new job after escaping a domestic abuse situation. She’s a good mother and extremely careful with her daughter, Lana. Maybe too careful but, she just came out of a bad situation. But what if her new employer and his sons are carrying secrets? She might not be as safe here as she hoped.
For at least half the book, things seemed normal, with a few warning bells going off. But then the further we delved, the more things and people became suspicious. It was that subtle suspicion that let me know to expect more, and we definitely got more.
I read quite a few books from UK authors, but I admit sometimes the lingo got me. The insta love didn’t work for me because there wasn’t any build-up of heat or tension. But it’s a small thing compared to how much fun it was reading this. I love the cover, the way the text wraps into the trees, with the door giving off a foreboding feeling, and draws you in. This is a fun plot, and I enjoyed the secrets that came to light. Overall, this is an enjoyable read.
