Clarissa's Warning is a new novel by Isobel Blackthorn published in 2018 by Creativia Publishing. I saw the gorgeous cover on a Facebook post and took a chance on reading someone new. Part mystery, part paranormal, this book focuses on the re-building of a beautiful but decaying island home off the coast of Africa and Spain. Claire, a middle-aged single woman who lost her mother very young has been raised by her distant father and her Aunt Clarissa, a somewhat gifted visionary. Claire fell in lo ...more

This was a very slow paced tale where everything was described in detail. The story had Claire winning the lottery and buying the ruins in an island, going about to renovate them with workers who were weirdly reluctant. And then strange things started happening to the workers which then moved on to her, reminding her of aunt Clarissa’s astro warning.

My first book by Isabel Blackthorn, I quite liked the main character Claire though I didn’t identify or connect with her. She had her own way of doi

Things that go bump in the night

This book definitely had the wow factor for me. Lottery winner Claire announces her intention to leave England and move to the island of Fuerteventura where she intends to renovate and live in an old ruined 'mansion' style villa in a small village. Her Aunt Clarissa, a dedicated occultist, issues a warning of potential danger ahead which Claire dismisses as poppycock.
However, once work begins on her new home, she begins to wonder if her aunt was right in her assum

I went on a tour in this book to a warm and humid place, lovely when I’m in the cold!
Claire has bought her dream home, she won the lottery, now the hard work begins. She meets Paco and a new friendship appears The builders are spooked, she is spooked and Aunt Clarissa did warn her......
The story gets spooky and dark as the house is coming along. Strange noises and happenings occur and disturb the balance of new and old lives.
Definitely recommend this, written so well and flows so good.

Although she is newly and incredibly rich, readers can relate to Claire who continues to be “frugal,” in
