Today I’m on the blog tour for Echoes of Home by M.L. Rayner, thank you to Zoé at Zooloo’s Blog tours for organising it and inviting me to take part and thank you to the author and the publisher for my copy.
Synopsis: After accepting a generous opportunity to start afresh, Leslie Wills, a young man from Stoke-on-Trent, eagerly begins his long-distance journey to the Scottish Highlands of Elphin, a settled village that sits huddled amongst the dominating mountains. Its people are welcoming, and the beauty of the land is great. But deep within its Highland paths, a location rests hidden from the public’s eye. A location which entices you to learn the truth of its troubled past. But once you bear witness to its sights and sounds, its presences will never allow you to forget.
Uncover the truth, Journeying back to a forgotten time. With a plot full of secrets and suspicion that will leave you longing for answers.
My Rating: 🐧🐧🐧.5
My Thoughts: this story is a slow burner, but once it gets going the writing is chilling & spooky, everything you want from a ghost story!
After the death of his mother Leslie gets a visit from his brother offering one of his properties in the Scottish highlands so he can start again, feeling excited for the first time in a long time he’s not tied down by anyone or anything and is feeling excited!
Unfortunately as soon as he arrives he realises that this won’t be the fresh start he was hoping for, the house is making noises and he’s pretty sure he’s hearing voices and seeing people too! – can he get to the bottom of what’s happening?
Once I got gripped by the writing it was a really difficult one to put down, I don’t often read ghost stories but this one was really enjoyable and one I will be recommending to my friends!
