Publisher’s Description:

With a baby on the way and a brand new house, it seems Ginny and her husband, Sean, are on their way to a fresh start. But strange occurrences and financial strain seem determined to keep Ginny and Sean stuck in the past. Ginny begins to believe the house may be haunted…or that her husband might be trying to trick her into thinking so. As Ginny researches the house’s former owner and the tragedy that happened there, it becomes clearer than ever that something is in the house with them. The question is, who…or what…is it?

Possible spoilers beyond this point.


Ruby LRuby_Lee 100ee says…

The month of January and I have never been on good terms.  The long cold dark days and nights push my cheerfulness to the limit.  I long for the end of the day when I can put on sweatpants and hide under my warmest blanket.  One odd thing I have discovered about myself is that I have no interest in reading romances in January.  Maybe it is because I am coming off my Christmas romance high.  Maybe it is because I am grumpy enough that happy endings give me a headache.  I actually feel like Lucyfer sometimes.  So this month, I chose a scary thriller from my large pile of digital books, and I made an excellent choice.

My expectations opening this book were that I was going to get a scary cookie-cutterbadge4v4 haunted house story.   What I really got was a ride with a story that has unexpected corners, stomach churning twists and turns, and a drop at the end that you will never see coming.

It starts with a dark character study of a marriage struggling to survive.  Ginny, the main character, gives the reader a wonderful look into the life of a pregnant woman adjusting to a new house, no job, and a husband who is aggravating one minute and sweet the next.  As the reader, we struggle to learn the secrets of their past while dealing with the hidden darkness of the new house.   Is the house haunted?  Are they haunted?  Or is Ginny being driven mad?

The story is beautifully written and the conclusion catches the reader off guard in a way you wouldn’t expect.


Lucyfer’s Corner

4 paws – I love January.  I love to hide in the darkness and watch unsuspecting squirrels from my secret tower of evil.  Ruby calls it a cat tree but ‘cat tree of evil’ doesn’t have theLucy Face same scare factor.  I also love January because Ruby doesn’t make me read her usual sunshine and rainbows stories.  I hate rainbows.  They have too many colors. I loved the feelings of dread throughout this book and how I never knew what scary thing may happen next.  Actually I got a few ideas I could try on the squirrels from my secret tower of evil. I will report back on the success of my reign of terror.

About Ruby Lee

I have always loved reading because it is my escape, and I will read almost anything. Lately, I have been getting into nonfiction, which surprised the heck out of me. I am also into many types of romance, horror, and sci-fi with an occasional mystery or two. I promise that I will keep you on your toes because my reading preferences are all over the map. I feel I’m a tough reviewer. I rarely give five stars on any story because a five-star would have to be a book combination of The Stand meets Charlotte’s Web which in turn marries Dante’s Inferno and has an affair with Where the Sidewalk Ends. I think that if a story travels with you for the rest of your life, it should have a special distinction to set it apart.
