Mara and Neil buy this creepy old house and from the beginning the ghostly antics mess with a disbelieving Mara. I loved this book and could not put it down. I had received this book as an ARC in exchange for an honest review and all I can really say is BUY IT, YOU WON'T REGRET IT.
This book was so dumb. The characters were dull, shallow and totally predictable. So was the entire plot. Stereotypical haunted house. Ooh the rocking chair moves on it's own. BOO! Never saw that before in a haunted house. Nothing suspenseful or inventive at all about this story.
Then the situation-Mara buys an old house in the present day--there is no electricity, no phone, etc. never once does she say, "hey, maybe I should get some electricity hooked up here so I can charge my cell phone, have lights, stove etc." No instead she ignores the lack of electricity-something that any normal person would have taken care of first and relies on Neil to provide camps stoves and a generator. And she loves this old house, with it's blood stains, eerie messages written in blood and strange noises. That makes sense! And coincidentally it was originally owned by her great great grandfather or just happened to be a spiritualist.
Too much nonsense!
The rest of the book was enjoyable. Not "can't put it down" material, but a good scary read. The twist was not a huge twist, but it was interesting. I enjoyed the description of the "cleansing," I could easily picture it in my head. Overall it was a good read and I will try to pick up some of the author's other books when I can.
