Ad – review. I was sent a copy of this book for review purposes and all thoughts are my own.

Today I am involved in the book tour for A long time burning by J. A. Higgins. J. A. Higgins was born and raised at Porton Down in Wiltshire, and currently works for the NHS in Salisbury. She has always been fascinated by history, crime and the unexplained. A Long Time Burning is the second book in the Nell Montague Mystery series which explores how horrors from the past are still very relevant today. 

About the book 
Nell has had a terrible year, so she travels to North Chase to find some true Christmas magic. But the town has its own problems; its solstice festival is tainted by the disappearance of two teenage boys and a witch’s curse is blamed. Then, nine-month-old Ava is threatened. Has a medieval killer been awoken or does something else haunt the woods? Nell must battle through horrific nightmares and face her own demons to expose the truth before another child is spirited away. There is magic in the air this Christmas, but behind the tinsel and baubles glitters a terrifying secret that one family has hidden for centuries, and only Nell can uncover it.

What a brilliant and creepy read A long time burning is. This is the second in a series which I originally didn't realise however that doesn't matter as I found it works fine as a standalone novel. I love that it's a creepy mystery but also around Christmas time. To begin with I did feel confused with the change of different characters within the story however the more I got into the story I was able to keep up.
