Book Review: Gallows Hill by Darcy Coates

If you’re looking for the perfect spooky read for the fall season, look no further than Gallows Hill by Darcy Coates. The story follows the heroine, Margot, who was abandoned by her parents at a young age and is now back at her childhood home for her parents funeral. Margot is left the house in their will, along with Gallows Hill Winery. As Margot is introduced to her new inheritance, she hears rumors that the land is cursed and was the cause of her parents death. This book takes you on a journey of grief, acceptance, and sacrifice from start to finish.

While I normally don’t read horror, this book kept me in it’s grip the entire time and made me not want to turn out the lights! I highly recommend this suspenseful thriller by Darcy Coates, especially for those who are fans of Phoebe Wynne and Tana French.

Rating: 4.5/5.0
