From the moment Lacey glimpses the dusty-rose colonial cottage with its angled dormer windows and quaint wooden shutters, she knows she's found her dream house. Walking through its cozy rooms, the expectant mother can see her future children sitting on the round bottom step of the house's beautifully carved staircase, and she imagines them playing beneath the giant maple tree in the warm South Carolina sun. It doesn't matter to Lacey and her husband, Eric, that people had died there years before.
But soon their warm and welcoming house turns cold. There is something malevolent within the walls - a disturbing presence that only Lacey can sense. And there is Drew, a demanding and jealous little boy who mysteriously appears when Lacey is alone. Protective of this enigmatic child who reminds her of the troubled students she used to teach, Lacey bakes cookies and plays games to amuse him. Yet, as she quickly discovers, Drew is unpredictable - and dangerous.
Fearing for her baby's safety, Lacey sets out to uncover the truth about Drew and her dream house - a search for answers that takes her into the past, into the lives of a long-dead family whose tragic secrets could destroy her. To save her loved ones, Lacey must find a way to lay a terrifying evil to rest...before she, Eric, and their child become its next victims.

Very Very Very Boring
Would you try another book from Sonja Condit and/or Cassandra Campbell?
Absolutely not. The writing was horrible and the story was pointless
Has Starter House turned you off from other books in this genre?
I like ghost stories, but there was absolutely no mystery about this one.
What didn’t you like about Cassandra Campbell’s performance?
The narration was whiny
You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?
Any additional comments?
Not a good story. I barely made it through. Nothing happens

Finally.....a great ghost story!
What made the experience of listening to Starter House the most enjoyable?
The narrator was excellent. The story was well paced, suspenseful and the characters were not stupid. Too often in ghost stories the characters drive me nuts because they can't accept or understand what's going on. These people were smart.
What could Sonja Condit have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?
Ooh. I really enjoyed it as it was. I'd love to see another book from her in the same genre.
Which scene was your favorite?
I don't think I have a favorite scene. Probably the interrupted game of Chutes & Ladders.
If you could take any character from Starter House out to dinner, who would it be and why?
Lacy. She was smart and compassionate.
Any additional comments?
More please, Ms. Condit!
