The House in the Woods

(The Boat House)
A novel by


The perfect getaway? Or your worst nightmare...?

My boyfriend, Max, booked a house in the woods as a surprise break. A week away would be the perfect chance to put the lies and secrets behind us and to start afresh.

But in the silence it feels like someone is out there. Watching, waiting...

When strange things begin to happen, I know this isn't going to be the relaxing break it’s supposed to be.

As my fear increases, Max’s patience begins to wear thin. He thinks I am imagining things. But he doesn't know the huge secret I am keeping, so big it could destroy us.

I have every right to be fearful and I have to make sure he never finds out the truth. But what if I am already too late?

Please note this book was previously published as The Boat House.
