The Sinister Gathering by Diane Ezzard

I’m delighted to be part of the blog tour for this very addictive book today. Thanks to Rachel’s Random Resources for the copy of the book and invitation to be part of the blog tour.


Sophie attends a well-being retreat hoping to find herself, instead she finds a dead body.
Coming to the Scottish Highlands, she hopes to escape life and get in touch with her inner self. She wants to free herself from the anxieties that have gripped her for years.
Peace and harmony are advertised but what she discovers is anything but.
She is around women with other ideas. As she gets to know the strange bunch staying at Glenloch Hall, fights and arguments become the norm.
She should never have entered that fateful property.
She was looking for peace but found death.


This book, the third in the series, is definitely the best. Right from the opening prologue it grabs your attention, and it doesn’t let go until the twists and turns of the ending.

The opening scene is very atmospheric, and sets the tone of foreboding for the novel. The pace builds slowly, as each character is introduced, and we begin to wonder how they will fare in this rather eerie setting.

There’s more dialogue in this novel than the previous two, and it works well, adding to the complexity of the plot.

The twist at the end is unexpected and provides the perfect climax to the tension.

Twisty, tense and compelling, an excellent read.

MY RATING: ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐
