I’d never heard of the author before but decided to take part in the tour because I loved the cover and the blurb sounded like the kind of book I could get lost in. I’m so glad I read this book because I really enjoyed it. I look forward to seeing what the author comes up with next. The Secret of Creek Cottage offers one of my favourite premises, a time slip novel that effortlessly moves back and forth between the present and 1916, gradually showing how a

I love a good timeslip novel, so I am delighted to join this blog tour for The Secret of Creek Cottage by Tina M Edwards, organised by Random Thing Tours.

This is a debut novel for this author, and I loved the creepy but also comforting and earthy vibes that this book wrapped me up in.

Thanks to SilverWood Books for giving me for giving me a copy of this book for review consideration. As always, no matter what the source of the book, you get my honest, unbiased opinion.

This is a brilliant dual timeline novel that had me sucked in by the mystery of the secret of the cottage. In the present time we’re introduced to Kitty and her Husband Ben, who have moved to Cornwall to escape the fast paced living of Bristol. All is well until Kitty starts experiencing strange goings on and decides to investigate the history of the two-hundred year old cottage…

At the same time we’re in 1916 with Loveday and her Husband Will. He’s called away to fight in the Great War and Kitty

This is a good page-turner which – although it deals with the dark subject of PTSD – manages to keep the overall reading experience upbeat. This is achieved mainly by separating the action into two parallel plots, which converge only gradually. While the rather grim story of a returning WW1 soldier with severe physical and emotional disability, and the impact of that on his wife and community, is progressing in 1916-1917, a jolly yarn of a young couple and their visitors provides a contrast in t ...more

his time slip novel gets off to an atmospheric start as we are introduced to the lives of two couples who live at Creek Cottage in Trunrowan, 100 years hundred apart. In the present, Kitty and Ben Gridley have relocated to this small Cornish town, hoping that by leaving their busy lives in Bristol they can find the peace and tranquility they crave. Back in time to 1916, and Loveday and Will Nance are facing very different challenges as Will is caught up in the devastating after effects of his ti ...more

This isn't the type of book I'd normally read, but I was sucked in from the start. This cleverly written time slip novel, that effortlessly moves from one century to the next and back again, draws you in with lovable characters and scene setting you can almost touch.
With love, sorrow, happiness, heartbreak, strange acting cats, lights going out, sudden chills, magic and the supernatural, this is a well paced rollercoaster read that I couldn't put down.
I'm looking forward to reading more from th

What a great book, like two different stories rolled into one thrilling read. The characters are believable and the attention to detail well researched. It had me gripped right to the end, and I would highly recommend it. Certainly Tina M Edwards first book was a triumph, looking forward to the next one.
