Wishlist Wednesday: The Shadow Year, Hannah Richell

Wishlist Wednesday is a weeklies hosted by Pen to Paper. As I have enough wishes when it comes to books I decided to join this weekly and tell you about them. I am obviously curious about the books on your wishlist too so feel free to leave a message. 

The Shadow Year, Hannah Richell cover
On a sultry summer’s day in 1980, five friends stumble upon an abandoned lakeside cottage hidden deep in the English countryside. For Kat and her friends, it offers an escape; a chance to drop out for a while, with lazy summer days by the lake and intimate winter evenings around the fire. But as the seasons change, tensions begin to rise and when an unexpected visitor appears at their door, nothing will be the same again.

Three decades later, Lila arrives at the same remote cottage. With her marriage in crisis, she finds solace in renovating the tumbledown house. Little by little she wonders about the previous inhabitants. How did they manage in such isolation? Why did they leave in such a hurry, with their belongings still strewn about? Most disturbing of all, why can t she shake the feeling that someone might be watching her?

First thing that caught my eye obviously the cover. I like it. It is serene and the title has pretty letters and the text made me curious. After reading the synopsis I was even more curious. I like books with unexplained things from the past and abandoned houses and stuff. Now this book is living on my wish list.

What's on your wish list?

Sounds great! I like the sound of someone coming to the cottage decades later and trying to figure out what happened. This one goes on my TBR list!
