The Chambermaid by Ramona Light #BookReview #TheChambermaid #Mystery #Thriller #BookSprout #RamonaLight #onceuponatimebookreviews

Today I am reviewing The Chambermaid by Ramona Light, independently published.


Ten years ago, a cult wiped out my entire family and took my home.

Now I’m back for revenge…

Ghostly figures in dark robes haunt my dreams and waking moments.

Only fragmented memories remain of the eerie night my family took their last breaths.

I’ve returned to my nightmare.

The Lakeview Hotel was once my home. 

It’s now the property of The Church of True Believers.

They need a maid. I need proof to expose them. 

When sinister events threaten to derail my plans, the reality that no one else knows I’m here sinks in.

A decade of repressed terror surfaces as I reacquaint myself with this place. 

But I must not blow my cover, because if I do—

What used to be my home might end up being my grave…

“She knows your secrets…”

The Chambermaid is both an unusual and intriguing read with an interesting plot that centres around a hotel where our lead Ellie once lived with her family before it was taken over by The Church of True Believers. Convinced they are to blame for the deaths of her father and brother as well as the disappearance of her mother, when she was just 10 years old, she returns a decade later under the guise of a maid in the hope of exposing them.

I found this to be a solid read that held my interest throughout. I was just as invested in the story as was Ellie in getting the answers to the questions of what happened to her family that night, which she so desperately craves. There is a gothic and sinister feel throughout and all unfolds through good plot twists.

Thank you to Ramona Light, and Booksprout for allowing me to read an advanced copy of The Chambermaid, which I have reviewed honestly and voluntarily.

This review will be added to, Goodreads, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Pinterest, Amazon Australia & Amazon US. I will also add to NetGalley, Apple Books, Kobo, Google Play, Barnes & Noble and BookBub if available.
