Megan Sones originally applies for a job to keep an eye on her boyfriend and his clingy best friend, but then she meets someone else who can see and interact with Megan’s twin Remy – who died aged seven. Meanwhile, there’s something very disturbing about the family that owns and manages the amusement park.

This stand-alone novel works a treat. The blend of Brothers Grimm, Gossip Girl, and V. C. Andrews creates a shadowy atmosphere with genuinely creepy moments and some truly effed-up characters. Land of Enchantment is suitably spooky with its over-the-top cheese and vicious underbelly. A definite page-turner!
