Today I am delighted to share my review with you for The Hive by Jane Holland and a chance to win a signed copy of the book
Scarred by fire from infancy, with a persistent stammer, Charlotte has always been in the shadow of her glamorous theatrical parents. So it’s a shock when her mother commits suicide.
Left to care for her sick father in the dark maze of her childhood home, Charlotte begins to unravel. First, there’s the mysterious arrival of a box of dead bees. Then buzzing noises in the attic. People are watching her. Listening to her.
Everyone thinks she’s losing her mind. But an old photo suggests another, more sinister possibility …
This is the first book that I have read by the author and it sure as hell won’t be my last. It has left me thinking why on earth have I never read this author before.
I read this in one sitting, you couldn’t of teared me away if you tried.
The story is told in alternative chapters with diary entries and the plot has we follow Charlotte on a dark and creepy journey. First a box of dead bees turns up and then she hears buzzing noises in the attic. OMG what a chilling, spooky engrossing read. It is full of twists and turns that will make the hairs on your neck stand up.
The Hive is full of mystery keeping you guessing until the very end. I had my theory about who it was throughout the story, has you do. But I wasn’t expecting that shocker of an ending! It was absolutely brilliant and all the pieces of the puzzle fell in place.
This is without a doubt a thriller with a capital T and perfect for anyone that likes horror. What more can I say but I loved it and cant recommend it enough. Now I need to read more of Jane’s books.
Thank you to Rachel for a copy of this and for the having me on the tour.
