Set in modern day England, this was a slow burning horror. Beth’s character, strong, brave and fiercely independent was the perfect person to attempt to figure out Stillwater’s brutal story. The mystery of the past family and the slight glimpses into what might have happened there kept me intrigued. While there wasn’t much outright horror or gore, there was plenty to keep me on the edge of my seat and keep reading. I really liked that almost everything that was happening to Beth could be explained by natural phenomenon, making her think that she was relapsing into a breakdown. With several twists and turns near the end, Stillwater ends with a different outlook.
