Staff Reviews

A troubled couple and a new comer find themselves entwined. The setting, a long forgotten English manor, is a character in itself, and is as flawed and malicious as the others. The slow build of this novel turns into a full on boil by the end, and I could not put it down until I found out how it all unfolded.

“What I look forward to most in Claire Fuller’s writing is the deliberate unfolding of plot and character, the careful chemistry that crackles when characters observe one another and reader observes narrator. Bitter Orange is Fuller’s most mysterious novel yet, a house haunted by the stories its characters tell of their pasts and the slow unraveling of the truth. Dark and twisty and full of secrets, Bitter Orange is a satisfying page-turner perfect for readers who like a spooky and psychological read.”
