“Engrossing, character-rich, powerful. Sten is on a roll.” – Publishers Weekly (starred review)
Crimson Peak meets The Sanatorium in The Resting Place, a heart-thumping, unforgettable novel of horror and suspense by international sensation Camilla Sten.
Deep rooted secrets.
A twisted family history.
And a house that will never let go.
Eleanor lives with prosopagnosia, the inability to recognize a familiar person’s face. It causes stress. Acute anxiety.
It can make you question what you think you know.
When Eleanor walked in on the scene of her capriciously cruel grandmother, Vivianne’s, murder, she came face to face with the killer – a maddening expression that means nothing to someone like her. With each passing day, the horror of having come so close to a murderer – and not knowing if they’d be back – overtakes both her dreams and her waking moments, thwarting her perception of reality.
Then a lawyer calls. Vivianne has left her a house – a looming estate tucked away in the Swedish woods. The place her grandfather died, suddenly. A place that has housed a chilling past for over fifty years.
Eleanor. Her steadfast boyfriend, Sebastian. Her reckless aunt, Veronika. The lawyer. All will go to this house of secrets, looking for answers. But as they get closer to uncovering the truth, they’ll wish they had never come to disturb what rests there.

Then, a lawyer calls and tells her she has inherited an estate. A home with a terrible past. Eleanor and her boyfriend, Sebastian go to the house and are joined by her aunt, Veronika. This turns into a real life nightmare!
Oh wow! Give me a creepy house and weird people and I am mesmerized. This story had me reeled in from the very first. Talk about suspenseful, especially toward the end. This is a tale, which is a bit far fetched in places, but I truly did not care. I wanted to find out who was doing all this insane stuff and why.
The narrator, Angela Dawe nailed it…and I mean all of it!
Need a startling tale which might keep you awake at night…This is it! Grab your copy today!
I received this novel from the publisher for a honest review.
This sounds really good. I’ll check if my library has it. Happy its a 5 star for you!! : )
