Publisher's Summary

When their mother is hospitalized, Tara and Kyle are sent to stay with their only remaining relatives, their grandparents.

It's their first time meeting May and Peter Folcroft. The elderly couple seem friendly at first, and the house, hidden in the base of the mountains, is full of nooks to explore.

But strange things keep happening. The swing moves on its own. Peter paces around the house late at night and seems obsessed with the lake where his sister drowned. Doors slam and curtains shift when no one is inside. And one room is kept permanently locked.

When a storm cuts the phone line - their only contact with the outside world - Tara and Kyle must find a way to protect themselves from their increasingly erratic grandparents...and from the ghosts that inhabit the Folcrofts' house.

    Story
    "An extremely well-executed take on the familiar"

    Right off the bat, you know something is up with the grandparents of these kids, and they do too. Though they try to accept it all and fit in, small things begin to occur to them (some of which, admittedly, didn't occur to me) and they begin to question more than accept.

    Several times during the story, you're thrown a slight curve and wonder if what you "know" is really it or if there is more. There's almost always more, and there's several times during the tale that you'll likely be creeped out or in suspense.

    More impressively, I didn't find any of the suspensful or "scary" moments to be derived from any of the usual cheap tricks that tend to dominate stories like these. The author really put in work to craft situations that had you just as confused and concerned as our poor little protagonists.

    I felt the narrator did a great job here as well. Pleasant accent that wasn't hard (for this American) to understand and added to the atmosphere of the story.

    I'd definitely recommend this book and will look for more from both this author and narrator.

    "Spooky!"

    This is my first book from this author. Darcy Coates knows how to tell a story! Very entertaining and creepy. Believable story line. At first I thought it was going to be like "The Visit" but it's not. Had me guessing all different senerios. Fun listen. Great narrator! Flawless!

    "Spooky"

    It was a very enjoyable ghost story, if you like ghost stories. I enjoyed the reader very much! I liked it even more because they didn't use bad words. It was something I would even let my 12 year old listen to. It is worth a try if you are looking for a great story with enjoyable language. It is so hard to find that now a days. It was really nice. Proof that you don't have to have foul language to be an excellent book. I hope more people take a chance on this book! I hope this author continues to write more like this one.

    Story
    "Did you try to kill Mum??!"
    Would you try another book from Darcy Coates and/or Jan Cramer?

    I have, and I'm just not impressed at all.


    If you’ve listened to books by Darcy Coates before, how does this one compare?

    This one is a tad better than 'Ashburn House', but definitely nothing creepy or scary. Overall it was just ok.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    *spoiler alert* I think my favorite scene, or at least the most notable is when Tara discovers that her grandmother is actually dead.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    I think this book could potentially work as a movie if it had the right screenwriter. I think I'd enjoy watching it as well.


    Any additional comments?

    I think I'll give Darcy another try since this one was slightly better than the last.

    "Creepy indeed!"
    Any additional comments?

    I enjoyed this book and found the main characters, the siblings to be likeable and interesting and I cared about their outcome. The author did a great job of keeping me guessing about the outcome, there was a lot of information that came at the last 1/4 of the book that really put it all together very well for me.

    "Nicely rendered ghost story / mystery"

    Main characters are like able and believable. Their predicament is plausible, as are the actions and reactions of the villains. Supernatural elements of the story worked for me. Low gruesome factor.
