    Thank you to Flame Tree Press for sending me a librarian ARC. I'll add my thoughts here soon. Bottom line: a great premise, and a convoluted but occasionally spooky story about ghosts, time travel, past lives, and demonic possession. ...

    Ghost stories are one of the oldest - and most powerful - forms of storytelling. No matter how much of an unbeliever you might be in the daylight, a well-told tale under the darkness of a stormy night can unsettle anyone. I spent two seasons telling ghost stories for a living, and I wa...

    I received this book in for review from Flame Tree Press. I?m going to do my best this year to read as many new ladies of horror fiction as I can and I snapped this up as soon as I noticed it was available without even reading the blurbage. I love all kinds of horror but the creepy, ...

    Review copy Catherine Cavendish is a prolific writer of horror - frequently with ghostly, supernatural, Gothic and haunted house themes. She's very active on Social Media and I have no idea why I've never read her work before now, but now that I've finally read one of her novels, I ...

    Over 100 years ago a brutal murder took the life of Miss Carmichael as she made her way through Henderson Close in an attempt to do a good deed for one of the many residents living in squalor and poverty. Now it's a tourist attraction where people pay to walk through the eerie abandone...

    I decided to start 2019 with a Flame Tree Press ARC. It also happens to be the first ladies of horror title I've read from this very cool publisher. As soon as I started, I was hooked by this intriguing story. Hannah has recently moved into a cosy apartment in Edinburgh. She's re...

    This was a really fun read. Great atmospheric setting, fun characters, interesting mystery. I'm really in love with the setting Cavendish created here, and I was sad to see in the afterward that it isn't a real place. I was ready to pack my bag and go exploring! The only thing that pu...

    I love Edinburgh and I love ghost/horror stories so this was, for me, a brilliant read. The story flips between Hannah and her colleagues in present day, Miss Carmichael in 1881 but we also have some time slip as the modern day characters flip back in time to uncover the mysteries of H...

    Nice to see a couple of ladies of horror fiction on the Flame Tree Press list for spring. There are so many great women penning horror novels, and I'd like to see a bit more even representation, especially from presses that only publish genre fiction. This one immediately caught my ...

    Release date 10 Jan. 2019 Catherine Cavendish is noted for her ability to delineate characters and pull readers into their lives, making us feel with them. That's very true in her newest novel, THE HAUNTING OF HENDERSON CLOSE. Set in Edinburgh's underground, and in that area when it...

    "It's worse than creepy in here. Let's find what we need and get out." What a fantastically atmospheric ghost story! I was really excited when the publisher offered me this eARC for my honest review because I love tales of the supernatural even though I am a total skeptic about it. ...

    3.5 stars! THE HAUNTING OF HENDERSON CLOSE, by Catherine Cavendish, is a novel that takes you--literally--on a tour of what Edinburgh's Henderson Close would have been like in the late 1800's. Three of the main characters dress the part of an actual person that lived and worked ther...

    I freaking loved this story. I've been reading Cavendish reviews for years, but I really didn't believe them. Not that I distrust your average Joe or Josephine reviewers, just that at least half the reviews were from other authors. THOSE I mostly don't trust. You know how it goes, you ...

    I might be in the minority here, but lately I?ve become a bit jaded towards ?the haunting of?s? horror stories. Maybe I?ve read too many lately? Or watched far too many horror movies of that trope? Either way, I?ve started to pull away from haunted house tales to a degree. ...

    This book originally had my attention due to its stunning cover and setting that takes place in Edinburgh. OH! AND it's a haunting! Who doesn't love those? The premise of the haunting surrounding a main character who is a "ghostly" tour guide also made this an easy choice for me. The w...
