In this gripping follow-up to The Meadows, a woman trapped by her own fears inherits a house haunted by a legacy of darkness and a history of ritual sacrifices.
A violent attack that happened nearly a decade ago has left twenty-seven-year-old Avery Tullinger barely able to walk outside. Following her estranged father’s death, she inherits Whickering Place, a historic mansion in Asheville, North Carolina, currently occupied by two tenants: Colin Gallagher, a young doctor, and his mysterious brother, Pearse. Soon after moving in, Avery learns that her father’s life in the house was consumed by the supernatural … and the activity appears to be starting again.
As paranormal events within the house escalate, so does Avery’s attraction for Pearse, even though Colin warns her that his younger brother is involved in a dangerous cult called The Colony. Faced with losing Whickering Place, her heart, and even her life, Avery is forced to make unimaginable choices. And as Whickering Place becomes the focal point for The Colony’s bloody rituals, the house’s dark history threatens to repeat itself.
At turns a novel of terror and a story of love, Whickering Place is a paranormal thriller of nonstop suspense about the risks of living and loving outside safe boundaries and the relationships that change, motivate, and sustain us.

“…a terrifying tale of the supernatural. The Meadows is another great offering by London Clarke, full of suspense and terror. Once I started to read, I couldn’t put the book down.” –Readers’ Favorite
I can’t say enough great things about this book! First, I must admit that it’s not the first one of London’s that I’ve picked up and I haven’t regretted it once!
She’s a fresh author with special twist that gives her stories the perfect amount of mystery, paranormal a little horror which is often mixed with romance.
Whickering Place is the new home that Avery reluctantly moves to after her father commits suicide. Suffering with agoraphobia since witnessing the death of her boyfriend almost 10 years before.
I can’t give away too much, you’ll just have to read it to find out…but reveling in Avery’s newly found confidence and love will leave you breathless.
There were several points in the book where the action picked up and I was literally on the edge of my seat, hands frozen around my iPad for fear I’d miss something!
