Review; Hearthstone Cottage by Frazer Lee

Last year I was fortunate enough to recieve an ARC of the horror novel Hearthstone Cottage by Frazer Lee through Netgalley. I read it shortly afterwards, but I haven't published my review until now.

Description from Goodreads
Mike Carter and his girlfriend Helen, along with their friends Alex and Kay, travel to a remote loch side cottage for a post-graduation holiday. But their celebrations are short-lived when they hit and kill a stag on the road. Alex's sister Meggie awaits them in the cottage, adding to the tension when her dog, Oscar, goes missing. Mike becomes haunted by a disturbing presence in the cottage, and is hunted by threatening figures in the highland fog. Reeling from a shock revelation, Mike begins to lose his grip on his sanity. As the dark secrets of the past conspire to destroy the bonds of friendship, Mike must uncover the terrifying truth dwelling within the walls of Hearthstone Cottage.

My Thoughts on the Book
I've already read The Jack in the Green by Frazer Lee, so I knew that I was in for a horror novel with a somewhat surprising ending. Hearthstone Cottage is a gripping read with a creepy plot and storyline. The atmosphere and setting is eerie. The characters are well written and interesting.
