Publisher's Summary

There's something wrong with Ashburn House....
The ancient building has been the subject of rumours for close to a century. Its owner, Edith, refused to let guests inside and rarely visited the nearby town. Following Edith's death, her sole surviving relative, Adrienne, inherits the property. Adrienne's only possessions are a suitcase of luggage, 20 dollars, and her pet cat. Ashburn House is a lifeline she can't afford to refuse.
Adrienne doesn't believe in ghosts, but it's hard to ignore the unease that grows as she explores her new home. Strange messages have been etched into the wallpaper, an old grave is hidden in the forest behind the house, and eerie portraits in the upstairs hall seem to watch her every movement.
As she uncovers more of the house's secrets, Adrienne begins to believe the whispered rumours about Ashburn may hold more truth than she ever suspected. The building has a bleak and grisly past, and as she chases the threads of a decades-old mystery, Adrienne realises she's become the prey to something deeply unnatural and intensely resentful.
Only one thing is certain: Ashburn's dead are not at rest.

Spoilers ahead

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.
