We're waiting for you to come and play. Dunvegan School for Girls has been closed for many years. Converted into a family home, the teachers and students are long gone. But they left something behind...Sophie arrives at the old schoolhouse to spend the summer with her cousins. Brooding Cameron with his scarred hand, strange Lilias with a fear of bones and Piper, who seems just a bit too good to be true. And then there's her other cousin. The girl with a room full of antique dolls. The girl that shouldn't be there. The girl that died. 


My Thoughts

  Chills and thrills are par for the course with Frozen Charlotte! The story was a fast-paced one, with intriguing characters, and a thrilling, mysterious vibe. 

  After downlaoding a Ouija board on his phone, and asking it when he would die, Sophie's best friend accidentally drowns on his way home from hanging out with her. Sophie is grieving, and decides that her previous plans to go see her extended family might be the best way to figure out what happened to him that night. To prove something supernatural was at work, and hopefully gain clarity and closure, for herself and him. What she doesn't expect is a broken family, with problems of their own. Sophie is taken on a journey with creepy dolls, an overly friendly cousin, a mean cousin, and a young cousin who sees her dead sister, and is deathly afraid of bones. Will she make it out of here, and back home, alive?

  My only issues witht the story were the missing horror elements thatI look for, and some things were a little predictable. All in all, a solid thriller, with a little mystery and attempted murder! I would recommend Frozen Charlotte as a "starter horror"!

  Thanks to Netgalley and the Publisher for allowing me access to Frozen Charlotte!

3 Stars!
