A strange encounter
Neve comes across a troubled woman called Isabelle on Waterloo Bridge late one night. Isabelle forces a parcel into Neve’s hands and jumps to her death in the icy Thames below.
An unexpected gift
Two weeks later, as Neve’s wreck of a life in London collapses, an unexpected lifeline falls into her lap – a charming cottage in Cornwall left to her by Isabelle, the woman on the bridge. The solution to all her problems.
A Twisted secret
But when Neve arrives, alone in the dark woods late one night, she finds a sinister-looking bungalow with bars across its windows. And her dream home quickly becomes her worst nightmare – a house hiding a twisted secret that will change her life forever…
Thank you Netgalley and Harper fiction for this review copy in exchange for an honest review.
This was a fantastic book. I have never read any of the author’s previous work. I will certainly be looking out for it plus new releases
When the Story starts you are dragged right into the action. After this the book carries on building suspense right through to the last page. You could feel the atmosphere in that cottage which freaked me right out and I just wanted to jump into the book and pull Neve straight out of there it was just so creepy. I read this book over 24 hours in 2 or 3 sittings it was that good as I just wanted to know what was going to happen.
I highly recommend this

Below is the Rhyme which I believe this novel is named after which I vaguely know
In A Cottage In A Wood
In a cottage in a wood,
A little old man at the window stood.
Saw a rabbit running by,
Knocking at the door.
“Help me, help me please,” he said,
“Before that gunman shoots me dead!”
“Come little rabbit, come with me.
How HAPPY WE WILL BE.”
