About the Author

Many authors claim to have known their calling from a young age. Liz Schulte, however, didn't always want to be an author. In fact, she had no clue. Liz wanted to be a veterinarian, then she wanted to be a lawyer, then she wanted to be a criminal profiler. In a valiant effort to keep from becoming Walter Mitty, Liz put pen to paper and began writing her first novel. It was at that moment she realized this is what she was meant to do. As a scribe she could be all of those things and so much more. When Liz isn’t writing or on social networks she is inflicting movie quotes and trivia on people, reading, traveling, and hanging out with friends and family. Liz is a Midwest girl through and through, though she would be perfectly happy never having to shovel her driveway again. She has a love for all things spooky, supernatural, and snarky. Her favorite authors range from Edgar Allen Poe to Joseph Heller to Jane Austen to Jim Butcher and everything in between. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

This is a case of a pretty good plot being sabotaged by lack of editing. I knew who the killer was by chapter 4, and there were a few places that were totally unrealistic (like Ella saying Troy was in the hospital having several operations on his arm, then wondering why he hadn't been to see her; blood spurting from a severe wound on Troy's arm, yet standing around doing nothing about it for an extended period of time; and after all the horrors experienced in the house, deciding to stay, etc.). But the most frustrating part was trying to wade through over 300 errors that could have been caught had the book been properly edited: missing words, misused words (for example: misusing wondering for wandering; eminent for imminent; confusing set and sat, setting and sitting; even using watched instead of washed--"...looked like it had been watched and dried"-- and there were more); punctuation errors; repeated words and phrases; overused expressions; and badly mangled verb tenses. As a rough first draft, it had the potential to be excellent. As a finished product, it left a lot to be desired. The writer definitely has talent, but needs to work on the technical skills of writing and avail herself of a good editor.

I could not put this book down. It was suspenseful, interesting and sometimes just creepy. I had to stop myself from jumping to the end of the book to know what happens. Everyone is a suspect, which makes it even more intense as you read through the book. You second guess everybody and everything. The story keeps you on your toes as it winds through the story about Ella and all the crazy things happening to her as she tries to uncover the mystery of her husband's death. I love when a book ends and you feel completely satisfied with the conclusion and the characters linger with you well after you have finished the story. This is exactly how it was with Dark Corners. Highly recommend!

Ella is a well-known writer who lives in a house that she is bound to by a real life murder mystery. Her husband was brutally killed in their kitchen and the town folk have turned their suspicions on her. She finally becomes determined to find the real killer, but the house is haunted with entities adrift that seem to be working against her. Her sanity is threatened as she looks for clues along with Gabriel, a local detective friend, who will solve the mystery and hopefully give her closure and the ability to move on in her life.
As I started reading Liz Shulte's novel, I was impressed with her ability to infuse a strong sense of emotion and character into her main protagonist. Ella came alive for me as a person and I began to care for her--something that is essential to building a good story. After the initial introduction to Ella, I found myself caring so much that it was a little difficult getting through the first few chapters. The story and her life seemed to drag and there wasn't a lot of zing to the story. Questions that were inserted in my mind earlier in the story, lingered a bit too long for my taste and the tale lost some of the pop that I was looking for. However, the story soon recovered nicely and all of the story's neighborhood characters, including the ghosts, began to compete for a really good supernatural whodunit.
Liz Shulte has crafted a worthwhile read and I recommend that you find a place for Dark Corners on your bookshelf. I enjoyed it. I look forward to more from this author in the future.

I pride myself in being able to pick apart a plot and figure out the twists before they happen. I can no longer claim that to be true. Liz's writing pulled me in hook line and sinker. I was quickly immersed in to this world right along with the characters and followed every mesmerizing word and went right down the path Liz lead me. There were so many times I thought I had it all figured out, only to be shocked when I was wrong. This is hands down one of the best suspense thrillers I've read in a very long time. It kept me guessing and at the edge of my seat. If you haven't read this book yet, you're missing out.

I enjoyed this book. There were times I couldn't tell what was real, what what supernatural and what was just in the protagonist's head. Which is the way any good ghost and/or suspense novel should be. I hope there's another with these characters. I'm going to go look now.

It took me forever to finish this. The story was somewhat unbelievable, but that wasn't the reason I kept putting it down. It just wasn't interesting! Nothing noteworthy happened in the entire story. Ella goes home makes dinner, Ella tries to sleep but something weird happens, Detective comes over and comforts Ella, etc. It was the same thing over and over. It would make a good Lifetime TV movie, but as a novel...not so much!

At first I really did not get into this book, it was hard for me to concentrate or really sink into it. I really don't know why, maybe it's the way she writes that isn't familiar to me.
But whatever it was, it took me at least 4 chapters for me before I got into the book and really started to feel this story. But I'm glad I stuck with it because once I started to get into it I was more able to follow the book. I won,t say that it's a classic but it's quite readable.
IT keeps you guessing all along, and the plot is not so bad, I think it could be a bit better, The story hold itself well but lacks some convincing at some point in the story. I think she could have develop this story a lot more and make it more suspenseful for us the readers. I was left on my appetite all along, it never really gripped me, which is why I say it is a light read.
I,m used to reading horror and heavy thrillers, so this was quite the light suspense for me.

It's the story of a newly married couple that moves into the husband house that he inherited from his side of the family. But Ela a horror book author, the wife, finds the house quite cold and uninviting. From the start she hears strange noises, lights flickering, things disappearing, doors closing and widows shutting on their own.
Her husband doesn't witness any of those things, so he laughs at her and makes fun of her in front of their friends. Until one day, their dog dies from mysterious causes and she falls from the stairs and they all think including the shrink that she tried to commit suicide and in this accident she loses their baby.
Then afterwards she goes on a book signing tour and when she comes back, she finds her husband murdered in her kitchen. Naturally everyone thinks she did it, including her best friend.
