Clarissa’s Warning by Isobel Blackthorn – Book Review

Hello Booklovers!!!

I am back with another book review. Thanking the author, Isobel Blackthorn for sending me a free copy of the eBook, in exchange for an honest review.




A lottery jackpot changes Claire Bennett’s life.

After she buys an ancient stone ruin on Fuerteventura – the island of her dreams – her mystic aunt Clarissa warns her of danger.

Claire pays no heed, but soon after she moves to the idyllic island, she is confronted by a mystery. As the sinister story of her home slowly uncovers, Claire enters a world of inexplicable events and ordeals.

Someone or something doesn’t want her there. But what is really behind the events?

My Review

I did not have the slightest idea about the book, when I first started to read it. But, once I started, I could not stop reading it. Me being a slow reader, never bothered me in reading this book. It took me only 4 days to complete this wonderful book.

The story is part paranormal and part mystery. The story flows within 6 months after Claire, a middle-aged woman bought an age-old decaying mansion in an Island.

It was such an enjoyable read and there were two aspects that made me really interested in reading.

  1. The history of the past owners of the house
  2. How Claire started to re-build the mansion.

The story plot was crafted in such a way, that it obviously attracts the attention of the reader. It arouses the curiosity of the reader, and keeps them hooked on until the end.

The story also highlights the protagonist, Clair’s complex connections with her parents and her aunt, which ultimately leads to the latter part of the story, where she takes a giant step in solving the problems that she faces.

Strong qualities of a woman is brought into the attention of the reader through the protagonist, Clair, because she definitely is a fighter. Her strong will-power to face life no matter how hard it becomes, shows the power of a woman. Claire’s intention to protect the old mansion and her love for history is yet another aspect that proves her strength and courage.

The book unquestionably has the wow factor that thrills the reader. I would highly recommend this book to anyone who loves reading mystery books.
