#Review | #BookReview | TREMBLEATH by Ruth Shedwick @ruthshedwick (November 11th 2019) @hyggemediauk @vinehousedist

Thank you very much to Julie at Vine House Distribution and Ruth Shedwick for providing a copy of the book to *M*

The review below is 100% honest and all of her own views.


Amelia Scott is a young woman trying to re-build her life in Southern England following a disastrous relationship. It was going to be an adventure, but when there’s news of a young girl found dead and another goes missing, she quickly begins to learn there is more to Creek Bay than she could ever imagine. A village hiding a dark secret, two families at war; newcomer Amelia Scott gets caught up in a murder investigation with dire consequences.


The debut novel TREMBLEATH by Ruth Shedwick is an excellent exploration of the unknown. Thrown into the world of Amelia Scott as she relocates to Cornwall, I was instantly intrigued. Here is a character so out of her depth that we cannot do anything but go on this journey with her. 

Cleverly written by Shedwick, we follow the story as it naturally unfolds, finding out the truth about the world through Amelia’s eyes. A steady narrative that doesn’t give too much away too soon. This is a book that I originally thought would be slow and more a work of crime fiction. But boy was I pleasantly surprised. 

The well thought out setting, the intriguing characters and clever use of folklore with the modern world is a great concept for a debut novel. I turned the last page eager to see what happens next for Amelia Scott, because surely it cannot end there. 

A very pleasant and enjoyable read, I am completely grateful to have this novel on my bookshelf.
