The characters, were well developed and help to make the story stronger. This was a fast paced read, with a twisting and turning plot. Not bad, but not one of my favorites by this author either.
Creepy, fun story about a haunted house. Very easy to read and with a couple of disturbing scenes. However I thought some things happened just to serve the plot. Plus the voices of the characters could be more unique, especially in long dialogues. Oct 05, Jessica rated it it was ok. There are some mild spoilers in this review. Sadly I found this book really boring. The characters are shallow and I couldn't believe in their motivations.
There was no atmosphere or detailed descriptions. The plot was predictable and trite. Things would be fine one sentence and then all of a sudden there was a haunting with no build up or suspense which made the potential for creepiness fall flat. And as for the creep-factor, which is what I was looking for, I normally scare easily when it comes There are some mild spoilers in this review.
And as for the creep-factor, which is what I was looking for, I normally scare easily when it comes to ghost stories, but I could read this book at midnight in the pitch dark except my Kindle light in a creepy house all alone on Halloween night with scary sound effects playing in the background and I would still fall asleep before finishing a chapter!
UPDATE: There were a few creepier parts towards the end but they were more horror-oriented instead of Gothic ghost story I wanted a ghost story without blood or gore or bizarre things. Exaggerations aside, I thought the pacing was good and I was somewhat curious about why the ghost was haunting the house but mostly I was bored and couldn't wait for it to end.
I would have preferred atmosphere, better descriptions, deeper characters with believable motivations and logical decisions and that I actually liked and could relate to , and a tighter well-planned plot with twists and turns.
Example - If you have a restraining order against someone, why would you use your neighbor's address online? Why not just get a post office box?
And as the neighbor, why would you agree to someone using your address for their business, especially someone you just met? Wouldn't you find that bizarre and an invasion of privacy? Why put personal items in your front yard that he would recognize? And the most obvious of all, why wouldn't you notify the police immediately if he were stalking you?!
I'm not sure if I will read other books by this author. I'll go back to Simone St. James novels for a cozy ghost story. Aug 15, Kathy rated it it was amazing. She brings you into the story within 3 pages. I didnt want to put The house next store down! Anna moves into a new house "Marwick House" but little did she know its haunted.

Country Gals Book Blog. Another amazing book by Darcy Coates. I just loved it. Creepy Goodness! The book follows Jo who lives next door to the Haunted House. The house has a long violent past and can never keep occupants.
The newest owner, Anna thought she had got lucky to find the house so quick and in her price range but things started to happen. I don't want to go into the story more as to not spoil it but I highly recommend this book especially to those who love a "not so friendly" ghost.

I was reading this before bedtime and beginning to wonder if this was a mistake. Books usually don't have that kind of a hold on me. Darcy Coates certainly has an imagination. She writes a good story without the profanity that goes with the genre with many writers. Mar 08, Allyson Grove rated it really liked it. A nice creepy read. I liked the story and the characters.

I didn't think I would like the book I listened to it on audio book But it had a lot of scary points I suggest you don't read or listen to it at night unless you want to be in a blanket burrito during the night There are no discussion topics on this book yet.
