In a Cottage In a Wood by Cass Green

This was the first novel of Green’s that I have read, but it will surely not be the last. We begin in England, with Neve, a ne’re do well woman who enjoys a carefree lifestyle of the bar life. She has recently become homeless and is overstaying her welcome at her older sisters home.  After another drunken one night stand, she walks through bitter cold and meets a woman named Isabelle on Waterloo Bridge. Isabelle forces an envelope upon Neve and then after a cryptic message, jumps into the icy Thames River to her death.  

A couple of weeks later, Neve discovers she is the sole heir to a cottage in Cornwell, left to her by Isabelle.  She takes a train and is filled with romantic thoughts about her new life, but someone else has other plans.  The cottage is actually dilipated, rundown and quite spooky.  This city girl has no idea of the monster in the woods, watching her.

This story is gripping and full of twists and turns.  Difficult to put down and wonderfully, unexpected ending. Its such a joy to find a novel that has lots of unpredictability. Green’s writing style is easy to read and very enthralling.  Move In a Cottage In a Wood to the top of your TBR (To Be Read) pile!
