The Winter House
The Winter House: A dark thriller about a dream home that becomes your worst nightmare by P.R. Black

'A gripping story of the unravelling of a mother's secrets as her daughter searches for answers to a decades-old mystery of a local girl's disappearance. Evocative, suspenseful and beautifully written. I couldn't put it down.' Adrienne Chinn

'I was hooked from the very first page. The emotional layers of this beautifully written book are woven together seamlessly. Absolutely superb!' Clare Marchant

'An absolutely fascinating tale of a fractured family, and the hurts and secrets that they carry. McCarron's observations and characterizations are sublime.' Jenni Keer

A gripping and emotional story of family and the secrets we keep from the ones we love. For fans of Kristin Hannah and Delia Owens.

When you're lost sometimes the only way to look forward is to look back...

Three women. Two generations apart. One secret they share.

1997. As the people of Fort Meadow Beach celebrate the Fourth of July, four-year-old Daisy Wright disappears and is never seen again.

Present Day. Fired from her job and heartbroken, Peyton Winchester moves back home for the summer.

Sitting in her childhood bedroom in her parents' sprawling mansion on the edge of the Atlantic ocean brings back all kinds of memories – including Daisy's vanishing when Peyton was a young girl herself. As she begins her search for the truth, the investigation will hit close to home, intertwining Daisy's past and Peyton's present with irreversible consequences.

How far will Peyton be ready to go to uncover the truth and will what she finds destroy everything or finally lead her home?
