THE MISSING YEARS by Lexie
Elliott is an astonishing psychological thriller! This novel had me
immobilized until the end. It is one of those that give you the chills at
night so do not read it alone. Elliott has an amazing way of giving you
goosebumps with this one. The sensation of being in an old Scottish
manor with no one close by and odd things happening that can't be
explained just adds to the eerie feel of this story.
Alisa Calder's mother passed away and she inherited half a house. Her
father who has been missing for twenty-seven years owns the other
half of the house. Alisa along with her half-sister move into the house
until they can get it sold. However, things seem different than when she
lived there many years ago. Coming back to her old hometown has
brought up secrets about the town, her family, and the house. Animals
will not enter the property, but an intruder does. It comes to a point
that she does not feel safe and finds that there may be some people
who she finds hard to trust.
This novel is one of the best thrillers that I have read so far. Lexie Elliott
has a way of taking her readers to the setting with her writing. As I read
each page, I could feel the atmosphere of the manor as Alisa would
take each step of the stairs or as she would enter the rooms of her
past. The chills I would get when she would describe every unnerving
situation that Alisa would experience. It would really make me have
those spine-chilling feelings as I would THE MISSING YEARS by Lexie Elliott. This is one
thriller you must read.
The French Girl captivated readers with a twisting
tale of psychological suspense. Now author Lexie Elliott
heads to the foothills of the Scottish Highlands, where a
woman's tangled family history comes back to haunt her...
An eerie, old Scottish manor in the middle of nowhere
that's now hers.
Ailsa Calder has inherited half of a house. The other half
belongs to a man who disappeared without a trace
twenty-seven years ago--her father.
Leaving London behind to settle the inheritance from her
mother's estate, Ailsa returns to her childhood home,
nestled amongst the craggy peaks of the Scottish Highlands,
joined by the half-sister who's almost a stranger to her.
Ailsa can't escape the claustrophobic feeling that the house
itself is watching her-- as if her past hungers to consume
her. She also can't ignore how the neighborhood animals
refuse to set one foot within the gates of the garden.
When the first nighttime intruder shows up, Ailsa fears that
the manor's careless rugged beauty could cost her everything.
