I received a copy of this book in return for leaving an honest review.
One thing is certain, the description of this book doesn't do it justice. Its kinda like the kindergarten Cliffs Notes. But it works because anything more would give to much away. I loved Adrienne aka Addy right away. She is super relatable to all of us kinda loner folks. Her cat Wolfgang is super awesome and not only does he play a pretty big role in this story but he also seems like the kind of cat you would want to curl up with and read. This book had me going back and forth on trying to figure out if the recently departed Great Aunt Edith was the big bad of the book or not. And then of course trying to pinpoint exactly what the big bad was exactly. Darcy kept me guessing and didn't let the picture be complete until she was ready. I was close but I still got it wrong. I feel the main characters of the book are Addy and Wolfgang. Edith of course plays a pretty big role both in the beginning and towards the end. We get to learn about her quirks throughout the whole story. Just don't be quick to judge. The sub characters are just as important as the main characters. Instead of just being filler, each and every one of them play important roles in completing the picture. One of my other favorite things about this book, and all of her books for that matter, is that you can't discount any of the small details. They are all important. And when the story finally reaches the super climatic end, it's all those little details that bring it all together. I absolutely adored the ending of this book. It was wrapped up nicely even though I could defiantly read more about Ashburn House. So woo-hoo for no cliffhangers. Also, I love this cover pretty hard. This house is pretty spot on for how I pictured Ashburn House in my head.

I wish I could share in the love the majority of reviewers have expressed for this book. The story just didn't work for me for a variety of reasons, which I'll do my best to clarify without spoilers.

First, I think it's important to note that this is far more of an 'undead' theme than a haunted house or ghost story. I love ghost stories, but zombies and the undead don't interest me. Had the title and description better reflected the content, I wouldn't have read the book at all.

I felt the pace was painfully slow. We walk around the house with Adrienne, open a cupboard, find a cup, boil water in the kettle, make tea, walk around some more. In other words, we spend a lot of time doing uninteresting things in a house that should have held all sorts of allure.

And that brings me to the next issue. Adrienne had so little curiosity about the house she'd inherited that I found myself internally yelling for her to look around and discover what might be behind all those doors and inside those drawers she never opened. Her claim in the narration was that she didn't want to invade Edith's privacy. An absurd claim, to me, at least. The woman - whom Adrienne hadn't even known existed - was dead and the house belonged to Adrienne now, yet she didn't seem at all interested in the contents. We were well past the 3/4 point before Adrienne even looked in Edith's room.

The entire story is told from Adrienne's perspective. We spend most of our time with her, in that house, alone with her cat, yet I never got much sense of Adrienne as a person. She was supposedly a freelance writer, but I have no idea what types of articles she wrote or what subjects appealed to her.

I really liked this book. It was truly scary and at times, made my imagination run wild. A scary ghost story about a families home and the danger within. At least with this story, the owner took on the horror by herself and had to learn to defeat the monster while not being able to get anyone to help her. Good book!!

This is definitely one of my favorite Darcy Coates books. I really liked the storyline and when you find out what really is happening, it is totally unexpected. The author did a great job pulling you into the story and I really enjoyed all the characters. Can't wait for the next book!

Chilling.... This story kept me on the edge of my seat. There where a few nights I couldn't sleep, so I sat in my dark living room at night and read. Any little creak made me jump out of my skin! I love Darcy's books, she always leaves me wanting to scare myself more!

I was very pleasantly surprised by this book. Most haunted house type stories are so much of the same, but this one kept me guessing, and was a plot I have not read 100 times. Great characters, even Wolf lol. Very well written with only a few typos, which seems so rare with kindle books lately. Will definitely read more from Ms Coates

I Liked the Haunting of Blackwood House better than this one, but I am a sucker for a good ghost story, even if they are cliché and overdone. That is what I was expecting this one to be, another ghost story like her last two have been, but that isn't quite what I got, although I do commend the author for doing something different and unique while keeping the essential suspense and spookiness of a ghost story. I am so glad that the author included the other four ladies into her story because if it had just been her and her cat the whole time (as adorable and loveable as he is) it would have gotten boring fast. All the mystery is solved and wrapped up, which I appreciate, I hate it when horror books and movies just leave you hanging and feeling incomplete.
That being said, it did bother me that she never bothered to take much interest in the house and try and make it her own. She had nothing but time on her hands, she does a lot of sitting around doing nothing, even mentions how she wished she had some mindless entertainment like a TV or radio or her computer and yet she mentioned earlier that she had brought a book. Why not read it? Why not look at her Aunt Edith's books? She may not have had her computer working in order to start or finish her writing assignments, but could she not have found some paper and a pen and typed it up later? She complains about the filthiness of the windows and yet never attempts to clean them and only half heartedly tries to dust a little. If that were me and I had just received a house as an inheritance, the first thing I would have done is explore my new home! She doesn't even look at the whole house! and I would clean it so it was homey and I would make a list of things I wanted to buy or change when I had the money.
