Source: I received a copy to help facilitate my review. The opinions expressed here are my own.
This is the first book I have read by this author. I am so glad that I was offered the book for review. I might never have found him. As a middle school teacher I often have trouble finding adult books that I enjoy. This is definitely an author whose books I will enjoy reading and recommending.
If you are like me and love a good ghost story then this is definitely the book for you. It mixes the past and the present. Brad and Julie flip houses. When they find the Hemmings House on Bedlam Street, they figure this Victorian house would be the perfect project. Brad feels something is not quite right the minute he enters the basement. He wants to flip the house and sell it. Julie on the other hand has fallen in love with this run down property. She wants to keep it and turn it into a bed and breakfast.
The other inhabitants in the house, Gerald and Tess have other plans. Tess has design on Brad. She wants him even if it means she has to get rid of Julie. Sentinels in the house keep this from happening. With all of the strange happenings Julie now wants to sell the house. It will take a lot of money to fix it up to sell. She and Brad find a lot of valuable items left behind by the previous people. What else does this house hold besides, ghosts, valuable possessions and secrets? You really must read this book to find out. This is not your bloody, gory type of horror book. It is just creepy enough to keep you sitting on the edge of your seat turning the pages until you have finished.
