Special Feature: THE MISSING YEARS by Lexie Elliott

It’s release day for THE MISSING YEARS by Lexie Elliott! I am reading this one later this spring but I am so excited to share the one with all of my readers!

Since it’s out today for purchase, be sure to pick up a copy and check out all the advanced praise it’s getting.

I can’t wait to read this one, the eerie Scottish manor house description appeals to my inner Gothic fiction fan, so needless to say I am eager to start it but until there here is a little bit of info about this new thrilling release!

An eerie, old Scottish manor in the middle of nowhere that’s now hers.

Ailsa Calder has inherited half of a house. The other half belongs to a man who disappeared without a trace twenty-seven years ago—her father.

Leaving London behind to settle the inheritance from her mother’s estate, Ailsa returns to her childhood home, nestled amongst the craggy peaks of the Scottish Highlands, joined by the half-sister who’s almost a stranger to her.

Ailsa can’t escape the claustrophobic feeling that the house itself is watching her—as if her past hungers to consume her. She also can’t ignore how the neighbourhood animals refuse to set one foot within the gates of the garden.

When the first nighttime intruder shows up, Ailsa fears that the manor’s careless rugged beauty could cost her everything (summary from Goodreads). 

Elliott, who’s debate novel, THE FRENCH GIRL, was an international sensation, once again explores the subjective nature of our memory, perception – and even reality – calling readers to consider how easily our thoughts and recollections can shift, impacting our everyday truth and the way that we see the world.

This spring, step inside the Manse, a grand manor looming high in the foggy hills of the chilly Scottish Highlands that holds the ghosts of one woman’s past. Elliott’s chilling prose will lure you in to this haunting locale complete with creaky floorboards and shadowy corners.

About the Author

Lexie Elliott has been writing for as long as she can remember, but she began to focus on it more seriously after she lost her banking job in 2009 due to the Global Financial Crisis. After some success in short story competitions, she began planning a novel. With two kids and a (new) job, it took some time for that novel to move from her head to the page, but the result was “The French Girl”, which will be published by Berkley in February 2018 – available to pre-order now!

When she’s not writing, Lexie can be found running, swimming or cycling whilst thinking about writing. In 2007 she swam the English Channel solo. She won’t be doing that again. In 2015 she ran 100km, raising money for Alzheimer Scotland. She won’t be doing that again either. But the odd triathlon or marathon isn’t out of the question.
