REVIEW: Good Golly! I loved this book. It was so fun to read. I had a great time trying to figure out where it was all leading up to. I had an inkling what was happening but, I didn’t have an idea of how it was being accomplished. Oh my…your mouth is going to drop to the floor when you find out!
Right off I will tell you I never read Horror. I’m super glad I took a chance on this one. I love the older couple who are actually brother and sister named Roy and Alma Walgrave who at one time had a world renowned magic act. Mark Norman and eventually his girlfriend move into their mansion to take care of them in their later years.
Roy and Alma belong to The Redevine Society. Mark can’t figure out why they are in this group with two younger couples and what they have in common besides drinking together. There is also an old hippie that hangs around the industrial building next door who is always warning Mark that people don’t come out of the house the same. The house is spooky.
This is the creepiest book I’ve ever read. It was a ton of fun! If you’re in for a creepy, spooky time and love something different, this is your book! You won’t be disappointed. I promise you.
I received a copy of this book from the author/publisher and #Netgalley for a fair and honest review. Thank you!
SYNOPSIS: “Deliciously creepy!”—Barbara Taylor Sissel, bestselling author of The Truth We Bury
Mark Norman can’t catch a break—until he’s hired as a live-in home health aide for two elderly siblings who live at Alden Manor, a run-down mansion mired in the past. His charges, former stage magicians Roy and Alma Walgrave, give off an eerie vibe, but they are also wealthy and careless with their money. Seizing the opportunity, Mark soon makes himself indispensable to the old folks, losing himself in fantasies of inheriting the Walgrave fortune upon their deaths. When another employee, a young woman named Lisa, shares her dark premonitions and insists that evil lurks in the house, Mark thinks she’s paranoid and unstable.
Until he begins to notice odd, unsettling things himself.
When nightmares begin to plague him and the house gradually reveals a web of lies and twisted secrets, he can no longer deny the possibility that Alden Manor is pervaded by some sinister force. He’s terrified of losing his mind—or worse, his life. But he’s so close to landing a big financial windfall that walking away is not an option.
In the past, Mark has always known when to cut loose and get out. But if he can just stick this out a bit longer . . .
