What if your dream house became your worst nightmare?
Jess and her husband need a new start. So when the chance to buy a rambling old house in the Suffolk countryside comes up, they leap at it.
But not everyone in Suffolk is welcoming. The locals know a secret about the Maple House, and soon, Jess realises they've made a huge mistake.
Something bad happened in that house. Something nobody wants to talk about.Buy now from Waterstones Buy now from Amazon
