Sweet Damage

By:Rebecca James
Location: FIC JAM
Genre: Thriller- Gothic

'I still dream about Anna London's house. In my dreams it's as if the house itself has sinister intentions. But in real life it wasn't the house that was responsible for what happened. It was the people who did the damage ...'

When Tim Ellison finds a cheap room to rent in the perfect location in Sydney it looks like a huge stroke of luck. In fact the room comes with a condition, and the owner of the house, the mysterious Anna London, is unfriendly and withdrawn. When strange and terrifying things start happening in the house at night, Tim wonders if taking the room is a mistake. But then his feelings for Anna start to change, and when her past comes back with a vengeance, Tim is caught right in the middle of it.

A thrilling rollercoaster of a story - read it with the lights on!

The old Sydney mansion, with its strange, secretive transplanted air in the middle of sunshine and fresh sea air, provides a perfect backdrop to a story that had me breathlessly turning the pages, desperate to know what would happen next--though I never guessed the secret at the heart of this tightly-constructed novel. It's also beautifully-written, in sparkling prose that flows as smoothly as water." Sophie Masson
