Girls of Brackenhill by Kate Moretti

 A book that starts out saying..." I didn't mean to kill her" is defiantly going to get my attention and get it fast! I was instantly drawn into this dual timeline with that single sentence.

Brackenhill is an estate in the Catskills with 33 rooms. Sounds delightful doesn't it? It was delightful for two young girls that spent their summers there with their aunt and uncle. It was fun and glamorous...until it wasn't. Until one of the girls disappears......

Hannah swore she wouldn't step foot in Brackenhill again..yet she is forced to when her aunt dies suddenly and her uncle is on his deathbed. The house that holds secrets..the house that Hannah has terrible dreams about...the house that makes her sleepwalk...the house...Brackenhill...

Although it was a slow burn for me it did work. I enjoyed all the mystery surrounding the estate. I liked the use of the dual timelines. I thought the ending was very clever and I like the idea it implied of what was to come...

Thank you so much to Thomas and Mercer for my gifted copy in exchange for an honest review.
