My Review

The House on the Old Cliff was a great little story. It didn’t take long to read as it is a short story but it didn’t make it any less captivating. I would actually like to see this as a full size novel as I found myself with questions once I had read it.

I really enjoyed the plot, the mystery and uniqueness to the disappearance of Hendry. The characters were an interesting bunch and I would enjoy reading a little more of the backstory to them, especially Shaw.

This book doesn’t have chapters within it but there are story breaks, given the length of it though I didn’t find I missed the chapter break.

I would definitely recommend this book to others.

Thanks for reading and I will be back tomorrow with another review.
