Goodman offers an engaging atmospheric and spooky story set in the Rhinebeck area of the Hudson Valley in New York state. I know the area and think she did a good job capturing its feeling of place and the mood of the setting. The story starts out a bit slow as the author sets the scene but gains steady momentum as the tale progresses. In the end, I thought it all came together and held my interest throughout.
One caveat--I might suggest skipping the publisher summary. This write up is filled with plot spoilers if you read the list of books they compare this book to. It's a lot more fun to go into this book without all the hints and preconceived notions presented. Ghost stories should be fun and take you by surprise--sans spoilers--at least to my mind, that is.
Campbell is one of my favorite narrators these days. I think she did an acceptable job here. Just a tiny bit wobbly in a few spots, but overall, I enjoyed her as usual.
Recommended if you'd like a seasonally focused bit of spooky October fun with minimal eye rolling required. I enjoyed it.

this has all the Hallmarks of a Carol Goodman book. a story of writers living in a maybe or maybe not haunted house. this is a Gothic novel so it's a little on the dark side. but if that's your cup of tea you will love this book.
