The Missing Years
The Missing Years | Lexie Elliott
30 posts | 12 read | 28 to read
The French Girl captivated readers with a twisting tale of psychological suspense. Now author Lexie Elliott heads to the foothills of the Scottish Highlands, where a woman's tangled family history comes back to haunt her... An eerie, old Scottish manor in the middle of nowhere that's now hers. Ailsa Calder has inherited half of a house. The other half belongs to a man who disappeared without a trace twenty-seven years ago--her father. Leaving London behind to settle the inheritance from her mother's estate, Ailsa returns to her childhood home, nestled amongst the craggy peaks of the Scottish Highlands, joined by the half-sister who's almost a stranger to her. Ailsa can't escape the claustrophobic feeling that the house itself is watching her-- as if her past hungers to consume her. She also can't ignore how the neighborhood animals refuse to set one foot within the gates of the garden. When the first nighttime intruder shows up, Ailsa fears that the manor's careless rugged beauty could cost her everything.

The Missing Years ebook is on sale for $1.99! I loved this book and gave it 5 stars. It‘s another perfect fall read with just enough creep factor to get you in the mood for Halloween. It‘s set on a creepy manse in a rural town in Scotland. It‘s even got a guy named Jamie in it. I recommend you snap up this ebook deal and read it this weekend with a pumpkin spice latte. :)

Listening to audiobook about creepy (possibly haunted) manse, while trying to put my books up in new house. It is hard because I want to stop and read all the books 😆

Ailsa Calder‘s life takes an unexpected turn when her mother passes away. She discovers that she has inherited a house in Scotland. It‘s a house she lived in as a very young girl, but she and her mother left when her father went missing. Ailsa had no idea that her mother still owned the house, and she‘s even more surprised to find that her father‘s name is still on the deed as well. And that‘s just the start of the twists this book offers!!

Just starting chapter six of this one and I am so mad I didn‘t start it yesterday. I can‘t stay up late reading on a Sunday night. Mondays are hard enough as it is. 😰

The Missing Years | Lexie Elliott

When Ailsa inherits a manse in rural Scotland, she discovers that until her estranged father can be either found or pronounced presumed dead, she only owns half the estate. With no other option, Ailsa moves into the manse with hopes of a quick turnover so she can get back to London and her job in news broadcasting.
However, Ailsa discovers that small towns don't forget the past as quickly as she may have hoped.

I absolutely love the mood and mystery of this book, it is full of Gothic tension and surreal beauty. The characters are phenomenal and the setting is deeply effective. The constant question of whether or not there is something supernatural happening kept me on my toes, looking for clues and hidden details. The creepy elements were expertly written.

A gripping and at times creepy story. I loved the atmosphere it created. The story was interesting and built slowly to a clever climax that surprised me. The ending was really good and finished the story well. The writing was descriptive and flowed well. Ailsa is a good lead character, shes likeable and kept me reading. I also really liked Callum, he was a cute little addition to the story that showed a more sensitive side to Ailsa

REVIEW/GIVEAWAY: https://tinyurl.com/y5eo229h

So...you are telling me that only half of this house is mine and I can‘t sell it until we find my father who disappeared twenty-seven years ago?

If you are a fan of old houses, family secrets, sibling rivalry, family sagas, mysteries, and some unresolved issues, THE MISSING YEARS is a book you will want to read.

You just need to move slowly along with the characters and the storyline. 4/5
