My review of The Island House by Amanda Brittany

Hard to put down, intriguing book with nice little twists.

Both exciting and a little creepy at times and a book you have to pay attention to as it flicks backwards and forwards in time to 2 or is that 3 generations?

Publishers Description of The Island House by Amanda Brittany


When Alice’s father dies after a tragic hit and run, his death stirs up unanswered questions about her childhood. Who was her mother, why did her father never speak of the past, and why can’t she remember anything before the age of seven?


But when she receives an anonymous letter containing a photograph of a refurbished gothic guesthouse surrounded by water, and an invitation to stay, old memories fight to resurface.

Alice has visited before. She is certain of it.


Convinced the clues to her past lie at the hotel, she checks in. But once on the island, a wild storm rages, waves crash violently into the rocks, and the house is cut off by the roaring sea.

Then two guests are found dead. And the hotel owner is missing. Will Alice ever uncover her secret past?

And will anyone leave the island alive?
