The Fire Child by S.K. Tremayne. Published by HarperCollins UK

Rachel has been swept off her feet by the dashing and debonair David. Leaving London behind, she moves to his family estate, Carnhallow House in Cornwall. Thrilled with her new home, her husband and new stepson, Jamie, Rachel can’t believe her luck. Then things begin to change. Jamie becomes moody and unpredictable. He tells Rachel he’s being visited by the ghost of his dead mother and makes terrifying predictions. Rachel doesn’t believe in ghosts, but she’s worried about David’s reaction. He refuses to deal with his son’s behavior and it’s not long before Rachel begins to doubt the man she married. How well does she know him really? And just how did his wife die so unexpectedly?  I LOVED this book. Tremayne wrote the Ice Twins, a book that was a tough act to follow, but The Fire Child surpassed my expectations. The gorgeous (and creepy) Cornwall scenery, the abandoned mines, the hulking old house – all combined to create a story reminiscent of Rebecca. Highly recommended
