Publisher's Summary

When their mother is hospitalized, Tara and Kyle are sent to stay with their only remaining relatives, their grandparents.
It's their first time meeting May and Peter Folcroft. The elderly couple seem friendly at first, and the house, hidden in the base of the mountains, is full of nooks to explore.
But strange things keep happening. The swing moves on its own. Peter paces around the house late at night and seems obsessed with the lake where his sister drowned. Doors slam and curtains shift when no one is inside. And one room is kept permanently locked.
When a storm cuts the phone line - their only contact with the outside world - Tara and Kyle must find a way to protect themselves from their increasingly erratic grandparents...and from the ghosts that inhabit the Folcrofts' house.

An extremely well-executed take on the familiar

Right off the bat, you know something is up with the grandparents of these kids, and they do too. Though they try to accept it all and fit in, small things begin to occur to them (some of which, admittedly, didn't occur to me) and they begin to question more than accept.

Several times during the story, you're thrown a slight curve and wonder if what you "know" is really it or if there is more. There's almost always more, and there's several times during the tale that you'll likely be creeped out or in suspense.

More impressively, I didn't find any of the suspensful or "scary" moments to be derived from any of the usual cheap tricks that tend to dominate stories like these. The author really put in work to craft situations that had you just as confused and concerned as our poor little protagonists.

I felt the narrator did a great job here as well. Pleasant accent that wasn't hard (for this American) to understand and added to the atmosphere of the story.

I'd definitely recommend this book and will look for more from both this author and narrator.

Spooky!

This is my first book from this author. Darcy Coates knows how to tell a story! Very entertaining and creepy. Believable story line. At first I thought it was going to be like "The Visit" but it's not. Had me guessing all different senerios. Fun listen. Great narrator! Flawless!
