Can I say first that I'm a little confused with the name of the book. When I first read it and saw the cover I thought this was about a haunted wood or something like that, but it's not, it's a haunted house! Maybe it's just me but that's what it conjured up for me!! ;)
Anyway, this was such a great book and if I'm honest, quite scary. I love a good ghost story, even though I'm a wuss and can't read it at night!! This one was fast paced and captured my attention right from the start.
Maddies' life has been hell for the last year after a fire claimed the life of her husband and daughter. She decides to go to her great aunts' (who has dementia) old house to renovate it for sale. Little does she know that it's not going to be as easy as she thinks!
Maddie was such an amazing character. She lost both her husband and daughter in one night yet she kept going. Her will and strength of character was admirable. She wants to help settle her great aunts affairs and goes to the old house to see what she can do. Her life changes in both good ways and bad! She was beaten, abused, terrified, yet throughout everything, she remained strong and I have to say that at one certain part, my heart absolutely broke for her!!! (You will have to read/listen to it to see what I mean ;))
Then we have Doug. *Sigh* The hot handy man who lives next door and volunteers his help with the house!! You can tell where it's going!! I loved their relationship and see it blossom into something more. He was such a sweetie!!
This was terrifying yet I would love to see it as a movie!! It's fast paced, gripping and had plenty of mystery surrounding the house and spirit. I loved that Maddie found the journals and we got to see the story unfold alongside her. This book will stay with me for a long time! The author created such a chilling story that it almost feels real. I had chills at so many parts that goosebumps rose!! I will definitely check out more by her!
Teri Schnaubelt was amazing. She brought the story to life. She sounded terrified during certain parts that it was almost like she was seeing a real ghost ;)
