March 2014 New Gen Book of the Month.

Shot through with romance, this is a tense thriller set in a house which is as spooky as it is beautiful. Tim needs a cheap room to rent so, when he finds one in a beautiful house with commanding views, he doesn’t worry too much about the ‘conditions’. These include getting in the groceries for Anna, the agoraphobic occupant of the house, which doesn’t seem too high a price to pay. But, all too soon strange things start happening in the house and Anna is increasingly under threat. Can Tim keep Anna safe from a past which seems determined to catch up with her.

Synopsis

Sweet Damage by Rebecca James

In my dreams the house itself has sinister intentions. In reality, the people who lived there did the damage...Tim Ellison is lucky to find a cheap room in the city's best location. There's a hitch, though - he must run errands for the reclusive owner, beautiful Anna London. Anna is secretive, but it's obvious something is haunting her...When terrifying things start happening in the house, Tim is forced to think about leaving. But he's fallen for Anna, and when her past comes back with a vengeance Tim is caught right in the middle.

Ever purchased a book, read a few pages & thought I'm not going to enjoy this? Honest book reviews mean you'll never have that problem again

My favourite thing about is the 'like for like' page this has really introduced me to some good reads! That and lots of honest reviews.
