๐Ÿ“š9๐Ÿ“š Frozen Charlotte by Alex Bell

Dunvegan School for Girls has been closed for many years. Converted into a family home, the teachers and students are long gone. But they left something behindโ€ฆ
Sophie arrives at the old schoolhouse to spend the summer with her cousins. Brooding Cameron with his scarred hand, strange Lillias with a fear of bones and Piper, who seems just a bit too good to be true. And then thereโ€™s her other cousin. The girl with a room full of antique dolls. The girl that shouldnโ€™t be there. The girl that died.

The prequel book ‘Charlotte Says’, haunted me more than any book ever and brought back childhood fears. I was more than reluctant to read this but refused to be beaten by a book.

The creepy dolls were still present but with the story seeming to have a present day setting, it was way less scary. It did still make for a compelling and creepy story and the characters involved were clearly pushed to breaking points and then some!

Wouldn’t read this book again but I am glad that I managed to push through with it. I think I shall leave thrillers that involve dolls far away from my bookworm hands!

The only negative nelly I had was that I worked out almost immediately what the twist was and how it would play out. As I could already see the endgame, reading became less connective.

I would give this book: ๐ŸŒŸ๐ŸŒŸ๐ŸŒŸ๐ŸŒŸ
