This cover and the multiple awards for this book intrigued me. The thought of house flipping has crossed my mind as something I would consider doing. Plus the fact that the house I grew up in was rumored by the town to be haunted, had me leaping into this read.
I’ll be honest, I am usually a wimp and steer clear of books with ghosts. So I cautiously started reading this book in the daylight and could not put it down. It is not scary as much as eerie.
The main characters, a married couple with wife Julie, who is a little pushy – maybe even a bit of a princess personality and hubby Brad, a more even and hard working guy, create a nice base for the story. Brad can tell by instint that there is something going on in this house. The ghosts were just as well developed as the main characaters and I enjoyed learning their back story. The sections that take the reader back in time to when the ghosts were alive were great and added a nice dimension to the story.
