Stephanie Lam's stunning debut novel, The Mysterious Affair at Castaway House, is a gripping read laced with mystery, secrets and love. It's 1965 and eighteen year-old Rosie Churchill has run away to the beautiful but run-down Castaway House in the seaside town of Helmstone. But when she uncovers a scandal locked away in the walls of the old house, she soon comes to realise that neither her own troubled past nor that of the house will stay buried for long. . . In 1924 fresh-faced Robert Carver comes to Castaway House to spend a languid summer in the company of his much wealthier cousin, Alec Bray. But the Brays are a damaged family, with damaging secrets. And little does Robert know that his world is about to change for ever. As Rosie begins to learn more about Robert, the further she is drawn into the mysterious history of the house, and their stories, old and new, entwine. The Mysterious Affair at Castaway House by Stephanie Lam is an intriguing mystery that will appeal to fans of The Suspicions of Mr Whicher. Stephanie Lam was born and raised in London. She now lives in Brighton, close to the sea. The Mysterious Affair at Castaway House is her first novel.

I loved the gloriously, shamelessly old-fashioned title, with its hints of Agatha Christie and Josephine Tey . . . A fizzingly fresh story of mysteries-within-mysteries * Saga magazine *
An elegantly written debut by an author to watch out for * Random Things Through My Letterbox, blogspot *
Vivid and colourful . . . A well thought out, thorough mystery that does have you wanting to turn the next page * Lisa, Lisa Talks About *
A tale of mystery, secrets and love * Female First *
Highly absorbing * Love Reading *
A delicious new mystery . . . We started reading this over lunch yesterday, and became so engrossed, it was a struggle to get back to work * Novelicious *
