The House Keeper by Valerie Keogh

Atmospheric & Gripping

The House Keeper by Valerie Keogh is an absolutely gripping contemporary psychological suspense that I just could not put down.

It was very atmospheric. It employed techniques from the Gothic tradition with an isolated, long forgotten house. The hairs on my head definitely rose at times, especially on the moonless nights when the action ramped up. The house became a character in its own right as it refused to yield its secrets.

All the characters were well drawn and realistic. An air of suspicion and mistrust wafted over many as I wondered just who was hiding what? Whispers in the night and huddled secrets need to come out.

Guilt and grief surrounded a newly widowed character. She felt burdened and was hiding a guilty secret. All was not as it seemed.

Old crimes surfaced, exposing those long dead of despicable crimes.

I thoroughly enjoyed The House Keeper. It was a compulsive read, very creepy at times, definitely not a book to read alone on a dark night.

I received a free copy via Rachel’s Random Resources for a blog tour. A favourable review was not required. All opinions are my own.
