ou.bli.ette - noun: French, meaning 'forgotten little place'. An oubliette is a pit - a dungeon - where prisoners and undesirables are thrown and left to die.
Veronica knows the monsters aren’t “just in her head”, but no one listens to the headstrong ten-year-old as they tie her to a hospital bed every night.
Years later, after being dumped by her business-partner/boyfriend, Veronica finds herself on the verge of bankruptcy. Then a late-night call promises the perfect solution - a job opportunity decorating a castle in France.
Will Veronica risk what little she has left to chase a fairytale?
When the shadowy things that once terrorized her come back, Veronica must decide how much she’ll sacrifice for them, for her sanity, and for her life.

This book was longer than most I have read in a while but it was well worth it. It has me wanting to know when the next is coming out! I liked the fact it has history mixed in, making it more real. The characters were interesting and the story seemed to flow along nicely, even though there were many different 'little stories'. If you enjoy ghost stories or a good thriller, you should read this one. I Rated This Book: 4/5 Stars ****
