I really wanted to like this book but the main character spends 95% of the book speaking about how scary the house looks, her cat, and how she's broke and needs to get paid by her clients.
The character is a freelance writer. I know freelance writers that write for a living and they're not broke like the main character is. The ending wasn't satisfying.
I kept waiting for thrills and scares and it wasn't scary. I feel like an R.L. Stine teen horror book is scarier than this book.
Finally towards the end of the book the character does more research on the house. She finally talks to more townspeople about the history of the home.
She finally goes to the library to research. Why didn't she research the house before moving in? You can research houses on real estate websites now.
It was just too slow for much of the book without much action. I'm sure it's not easy to write a book but at the same time as a reader I just wanted true spooks.

I listened to this story with the expectation of it to be quite boring based on the other reviews that I read. I was pleasantly surprised by the twists and turns in it, but hoped for a little more excitement before the end of the story. It was still very entertaining and I would recommend it for a nice drive if you want to listen to something that keeps your attention and it does keep you a little thrilled throughout the story. I wish there was a sequel as I would like to know more about the concept of the family.

Scared the bejesus out of me. I normally listen to storys whilst I drift off to sleep..........big mistake. Lay there wide eyed and occasionally jumping. I'm now really tired but that was a good story.

The performance is great and overall this a nice, entertaining little story but even putting aside the comical zombie rising from the grave it just lacks so much depth. Other reviews have highlighted there are lots of small discrepancies but for me there were three particular points;
1) a huge absence of descriptive writing, I have no real sense of any character, personality or even the house itself.
2) the way that a brief visit by three local girls suddenly advances to the stage of best friends forever, with no logic, time or context.
3) most disappointingly is that the main character has no tangible journey between normal outlook and complete acceptance of zombie relative digging herself out her grave in the garden and attempting to eat her great niece.
Clearly I’m in the minority but whilst I found this a thoroughly pleasant diversion it lacks any depth, character or intensity.
Any additional comments?
I really liked this book. It was very enjoyable. The narrator was good. I will definitely listen to more by this author.
i couldn't put the book down narrator the storyline was captivating and addictive first class
