The Missing Years by Lexie Elliott: The Sunday Salon

The Missing Years
The Missing Years
Borrowed from Netgalley, The Missing Years by Lexie Elliott will be published  April 2019 by Corvus.

This mystery novel involves an old Scottish manse, with strange goings on and strange visitors that suggest the house is haunted. Ailsa inherits it from her mother and returns from London to the Scottish Highlands to either live in or sell the house. But there is a problem, as half of the house is still owned by her father, who has been missing for 27 years. 

I read it and gave it 4.5 stars because of the complex characters involved.

The Missing Years looks good...and I have The Affliction and need to read it soon! I love Beth Gutcheon's books, but the boarding school aspect may have kept me from diving into it...I'll have to be in the mood.

Enjoy your week, and here are MY WEEKLY UPDATES
