The Missing Years

We rated this book:


Alisa Calder has inherited a Manse in the Scottish countryside. The problem is, she only owns half of it. The other half belongs to her father, and he disappeared years ago. Frankly, she’d like to sell the Manse, she can’t imagine living in it. But until her father is proclaimed dead, she can’t do that. Alisa decides to leave London and stay temporarily in the house with her half-sister until she can sort out the administration around the house.

Upon her arrival, Alisa feels the house is watching her. There is something sinister about it even if she can’t put her finger on it. It definitely has its secrets, and she wonders if it is haunted. To top it off the villagers aren’t that happy with Alisa’s return and a few of them are keen to let her know that. Nevertheless, being back in her childhood home leads her to wonder what actually happened to her father all those years ago.

This compelling mystery left me on the edge of my seat. There were so many things that seemed to go bump in the night, creating a wonderfully atmospheric tale. The characters didn’t disappoint either. If you liked the author’s debut work The French Girl, you will love The Missing Years.
