Left Me Breathless!

by The Book Addict's Reviews

So I left one earlier, but it didn't save. Basically I really truly enjoyed this book. I've been chasing the awesome and creepy feeling from a story since the Lesser Dead! I am in awe with how the characters and story really fit into each other. There is so much twist and turn in this book and intricate details that make for a horror story that will leave you in awe! I sincerely hope there will be a sequel!

Ok horror

I watch a lot of horror films and this book read like a horror film. The first half of the book was great, the ending could use some work though. There was a lot of build up and tension, which was awesome, but the ending just felt rushed. There wasn't a lot of that tension in the ending.

Ghostly and creepy.

by Michelle Fidler

I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.

A creepy, ghostly story. Don't read before you go to bed! I don't see books like this much, ones with a scary house on the cover. The tagline, "Ghosts and Haunted Houses," also lets you know what to expect. The book was like one of those haunted house movies.

The protagonist, Rosie, was vulnerable due to an incident with her ex-boyfriend. The goings-on didn't help her any. Even when she first arrived at the place she was housesitting, she was afraid that Clive had found her. Since Rosie is alone at the house, a lot of times there isn't any dialogue, but it's still interesting. The prologue was good and drew me in with events that happened many years ago.

I enjoyed the book and look forward to reading more stories by this author and seeing what other spookiness she can conjure up.

I love this book. It was an awesome but scary ghost story. But I'm a sucker for happy endings just as Rosie was.

Rosie is running from a hurtful past and is excited to house sit this beautiful house and her escape quickly reignites her love of writing Historical Romance but she soon discovers the house holds secrets too and she may have just traded one scary situation for another in a far different way! Entertaining story.

Rosie is an author of historical romances who has not been able to write since being beaten by her boyfriend Clive. Her friend Amy does house sitting and gives her the opportunity to housesit in the luxurious RedRise House. It is out in the country and very isolated but beautiful. The cabbie who drops her off tries to warn her about something but she doesn't listen, sure that this beautiful isolated location will be just what she needs to recover and start writing again, and indeed the first day she writes for hours. However strange occurrences and sounds begin immediately. Something is not right at RedRise House. This book has all the elements of a successful ghost story and would make a great movie with a heroine typical of all horror movies who does everything she is told not to. I found myself telling her "No! Don't do it!", but I, the reader, of course know what really happened at RedRise House and she doesn't. It is very suspenseful and scary and comes to a conclusion worthy of The Omen. I received a copy of this book from the author to review and I thank her. I loved it!

REDRISE HOUSE DARKNESS...WILL PREVAIL?

by MASTERI

I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review. I'll try to review without spoil the authors work.

Like the characters and "non-characters" and the interaction in the book. The beggining of the book is very dark...

Rosie's friend find her a house to sit because she's trying to leave her past behind. Will she could do that?

Sit housing a "Haunted" house without knowing it, is the best part. Rosie had to discover what is going on around her and the house. But, sometimes "Curiosity Kills The Cat". Will Rosie...survive? Could she learn the truth?

The plot is very interesting and the darker the better. The author play with the mind of Rosie and pass that to the reader. Could the bray of the kids got Rosie's life? Read the book,...

Also, the story is good until the end...I find that an author who carefully weave this story just rush the end and take the readers enjoyment of the dark book, so, one star out.

I'm very honest with my Reviews, not only for me, the author or other readers, how an author know when did something good or need improvement?

How another reader believe in my review? If I didn't read the book, I don't Review. If the book is good, Review. If the book isn't good, Review.

With that we all benefit, readers, authors & readers searching for something new or special. My opinions are my own.

An intrinsically woven story of evil incarnate! A young woman healing from wounds inflicted on her by someone she loved tries to flee. A close friend tells her about a house sitting job in a remote area where she will be able to finish writing her book. What she encounters will make your blood run cold.

If It Cries...

by Bibliofiles13

*** I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review. ***


Since I have read one other book by Caroline I was ecstatic to read this one because I knew that it would be damn good and I was blown away. This book was better than I thought it would be and let me explain a bit about that part. At first, I was a little worried because The Haunting of Brynlee House was based on an actual house and this one isn't but there was no need for me to worry. There is just so much that happens that makes the reader want to figure it all out. What's going on with the ghostly children? Who are the shadowy figures? Why is everything so weird? Is the main character losing her mind? Or just having nightmares? What happened in that house? Or better yet, what didn't happen in that house?

I can't believe how complex and intriguing the whole book is. I am just kind of in awe of this story and the characters because I just loved it so much. The depth of what happens in the story is surprising and incredibly sad but it makes the story really great. There were also so many twists and turns in this book that I was glad that I was laying down in my bed while reading it for fear of my vertigo acting up and getting whiplash.  Even the ending I didn't see coming and has me still looking around and saying what the fuck just happened to myself and to my mom. She's laughing at me of course, but still, if a book can do that then props to you, my friend. 

I gotta say that I really hope that there might be a sequel with the way it ended because WHAT?! I mean, WOW. 

Gotta give you 5 stars for that one Caroline, whew. You really got me there. Damn girl.

Haunted house

by MelissaBasnight

I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review. Rosie went to a mansion in the country to avoid her ex-boyfriend and to get to a quiet place to write. She got way more excitement then she expected at the house. This story is spooky and scary. The house is keeping some deep dark secrets. Good story bringing in the past and the present.
