Book Review: The Parlour Game by Jennifer Renshaw

The Parlour Game by Jennifer Renshaw

Thank you NetGalley and Random Things Tours for the chance to read and review The Parlour Game by Jennifer Renshaw.

The Parlour Game is the historical paranormal thriller set in the London in the 1800s. It is the first book in The Corvidae Hauntings series and is Jennifer Renshaw’s debut novel. it’s 411 pages long and is independently published.

The Parlour Game is a perfect October read. It’s spooky and gripping and makes you feel like something is watching you while you lay in bed. Of course, it does have it’s flaws, but overall it’s a good read and I wouldn’t protest if asked to read part 2. I know that sounds lukewarm, but I don’t read spooky things, so if I’m open to reading a part 2 that’s a big deal for me!

I think the blurb tells us a lot about what’s going to happen in the book, so if you need a summary I do think you should just head on there. I will say that Renshaw is great at describing a haunting; there are moments you’re just as confused as Ivy and wondering if this is real or isn’t. The thing with the siblings at the end was a bit overdramatic for my point of view and I think that last bit with the mask had me wondering if the haunting was real or if everyone was just completely losing their minds.
