Trembleath by Ruth Shedwick

#BlogTour #BookReview for Trembleath by Ruth Shedwick @damppebbles #Trembleath @ruthshedwick #damppebblesblogtours @DAMPPEBBLESBTS


Amelia Scott is re-building her life in Southern England following a disastrous relationship. It was going to be an adventure, but when she hears news of a young girl found dead and another goes missing, she quickly begins to learn there is more to Creek Bay than she could ever imagine.

A village hiding a dark secret, two families at war, Amelia Scott gets caught up in a murder investigation with dire consequences.


This debut novel instantly caught my interest, well, who wouldn’t be intrigued by this cover?

I found the plot, characters and the descriptive scene setting all very well developed and worked well together. The lead characters back story was relatable and I felt instantly warmed towards her. The setting, a small village with a hidden dark side and strange noises…. The style of writing is great, pacy with plenty happening.

This really is a fantastic thriller which drew me in from the start. I enjoyed the intrigue and suspense which was built with each page. I am not generally a reader of supernatural / paranormal novels but I am glad that the atmospheric cover was enough to interest me to start reading… you should give it a chance too!

I highly recommend Trembleath and I am eager to read more by Ruth Shedwick. Hopefully there will be a follow up to this book so we can learn more about the village of Creek Bay.
