Very good book
Though definitely scary, this book was more of a mystery than a ghost story. Not that there were no ghosts, but the beginning spectres held none of the horror of the living. However, I love her writing as it is so engaging. I'm driving back in for more at the library this afternoon.
I found this book through a “blind date,” where the bookstore wrapped the books so you couldn‘t tell what it was and just gave a one sentence description.
This one said “a good read for a dark and stormy night.” I was intrigued, bought it sight unseen and was pleasantly surprised by how much I enjoyed it. Just enough ghosts and supernatural elements without getting too out there. Read it if you need a scary tale.
I started this for the old house, stayed for the family secrets ... and then got totally freaked out. It was gothic and mysterious and exactly what I was looking for. Although I might have read it at the wrong time of year. It definitely added a different dimension to last Christmas break. 😂 #scaryreads #allhallowsread
