Love Notes from Vinegar House

By Karen Tayleur

A gothic romance-thriller – think Rebecca meets Gossip Girl.

Freya Jackson Kramer has done some stupid things before, but this is the first time they’ve been splashed across Facebook. When she escapes to Vinegar House for the holidays, she thinks she’s leaving her troubles behind. But Freya’s troubles are just beginning. How will she deal with her manipulative cousin, Rumer? How can she avoid the ex-love of her life, Luke Hart? And what secrets lie in the locked attic? This is a book for readers who believe in ghosts, for readers who disbelieve, and for those who are still sitting on the fence.

  • “Funny, sweet and at times downright scary, Love Notes from Vinegar House shows that family secrets never really vanish – they are just waiting for the right time to return to the surface … A delightful YA novel that will entrance readers and forge a strong connection with an early teenage audience.” Bookseller+Publisher
  • “Freya’s fantasies endear her to the reader who becomes a willing confidante … An entertaining novel that is as much about family jealousies and first love as it is about ghosts.” Magpies Magazine
  • “Freya is an attractive protagonist, sensitive and self-deprecating, she tells her story with wit and humour as she develops confidence, insight and perception … Highly recommended.” Reading Time magazine
