The Cheesemaker’s House won the Suspense & Crime category of The Alan Titchmarsh Show’s People’s Novelist competition, reaching the last four out of over a thousand entries and when you read this book, you will see why. It is a modern love story, a historical story and a story of the supernatural, all wrapped in a liberal dose of suspense. The author has also drawn on tangible evidence, which she found in her own cottage in the country, as the basis of her story.
Alice Hart escapes to the North Yorkshire countryside to recover after her husband runs off with his secretary. Battling with loneliness but trying to make the best of her new start, she soon meets her neighbours, including handsome builder Richard Wainwright and kind café owner Owen Maltby.
The reader is soon drawn into Alice’s world, where all is not as it seems and battles with Alice to understand the forces in her house and within her friend Owen Maltby. The characters are superbly drawn and you feel Alice’s pain, upset and anger as she struggles to make sense of the unimaginable.
