Summary

Holly Palmer fell in love with the old public house as soon as she saw it.

All of her instincts should have told her of the mistake that she was about to make.

They didn't.

Chilling

An atmospheric tale made more so by the sound effects and the narrator's voice. The build up to a chilling ending made this a 'page turner'. An excellent short story.
