From Goodreads:
The Silent Companions

"Inspired by the work of Shirley Jackson and Susan Hill and set in a crumbling country mansion, The Silent Companions is an unsettling gothic ghost story to send a shiver down the spine...

Newly married, newly widowed Elsie is sent to see out her pregnancy at her late husband's crumbling country estate, The Bridge.

With her new servants resentful and the local villagers actively hostile, Elsie only has her husband's awkward cousin for company. Or so she thinks. But inside her new home lies a locked room, and beyond that door lies a two-hundred-year-old diary and a deeply unsettling painted wooden figure – a Silent Companion – that bears a striking resemblance to Elsie herself.."

Everything about this book just screams 'intrigue' to me. I love stories that takes place in old Gothic mansions with things that are slightly off and mysterious. This sounds perfect for an October release, and I definitely think I'll be ordering the UK edition because I just love that cover.

What do you think about this upcoming release? What are your anticipated upcoming releases?
