Emily couldn’t wait to visit her Aunt and Uncle in their quaint and mysterious little cottage near Stonehenge. But it doesn’t take her long to realize that her fairytale kingdom has a sinister twist. One night in her attic bedroom she is confronted by an evil entity that would taunt her for the rest of her stay and long after that. Who is this hideous creature and what does she want? When Emily meets the gorgeous Jonathan McArthur she is infatuated, consumed with lust and an odd familiarity, as if they had met before. Will he be coaxed by the peculiar old gypsy to enter the dreaded woodlot? Can the bloody ancient curse be removed before it’s too late? And will Emily ever get to feel his lips on hers? A chilling tale of love, passion, sorcery and sacrifice; laced with mystery and tied with humor. Inspired by the author’s own experiences in a remote little cottage near Stonehenge.
Merryweather Lodge is truly a chilling tale. It freaked me out but at the same time I was sucked in because I wanted to know what happened. The author had to keep many plot lines going and not drop pieces of any plot. She did a great job in juggling them all, at the same time she made the characters believable. The story has a romantic thread but overall it’s a dark tale. Emily and Jonathan are reincarnated from Druid times and they only love each other. Emily has to save the town from the evil that has haunted the town for a long time. I loved Auntie and he heroics at the end.
Overall if you love chilling, suspense, dark magic type books you will love this one. It has so many twists and turns and love in it that it should feed one’s need for being scared. It made me not want to sleep alone in the dark.
