I have recently read these two books back to back. Book 1, The House on Cold Hill and Book 2, The Secret of Cold Hill.
While I have to say they are no where near as gripping as Peter James Roy Grace series they were not unlikeable. I found I could put the book down and wasn't desperate to pick it up. I'm not sure if reading the books back to back spoilt my experiences as I found the books very samey. With maybe different characters. One almost felt like a duplicate of the other within different timelines.
One thing I will say, while reading these I leaned on my phone at the side of me and freaked out when Siri started talking to me, so the book certainly had the creepy effect it gives out, on me.
There are parts that are creepy, parts that you think you know just what is going to happen but then some good shifts that make you think all over again.
Over all I enjoyed both books, but wouldn't be in a rush to read any more in this series if there was ever to be any.
If you like a spooky read then now would be a good time to read them, around Halloween would really add to the atmosphere of these books and I feel book 2 has been released in perfect time for the cold, dark nights we are about to face.
