Summary

Rumor has it that the abandoned house by the cemetery is haunted by the ghost of a witch. But rumors won’t stop carpenter Mike Kostner from rehabbing the place as a haunted house attraction. Soon he’ll learn that fresh wood and nails can’t keep decades of rumors down. There are noises in the walls, and fresh blood on the floor: secrets that would be better not to discover. And behind the rumors is a real ghost who will do whatever it takes to ensure the house reopens. She needs people to fill her house on Halloween. There’s a dark, horrible ritual to fulfill. Because while the witch may have been dead... she doesn’t intend to stay that way.

KAZ😃🇬🇧 Rubbish story 🤔

Started of kinda ok but rapidly went on to something that just didn't make any sense what so ever for instance people are being killed but nothing is done about it I mean c'mon you can't be serious it's ridiculous Really wish I hadn't used a credit on this terrible book 📖 The narration was ok but as far as stories go this wasn't my idea of a good horror 😋

Spooky, creepy good!

Not my normal (abnormal) genre, but I have gotten in a groove of spooky reads lately. One thing leads to another, you know. Anyway, this book was a jump from a previous book about a police investigation BY a cemetery to 'House by the Cemetery'. I almost didn't stay with it, but after a few pages I was hooked. It is the perfect campy, ghost story that is spooky and creepy good. A smorgasbord of horror under one roof in the guise of a Halloween haunted house. The characters are perfectly created in the style of every late night horror movie (remember Drive-Ins?). Give this book a chance if you aren't squeamish. It is well-written with a few surprises.
I wasn't sure that I was going to like the narration, but after a few pages, I really begin to appreciate the versatile and talented performance of Christopher Ragland. I would get so wrapped up in the story, I would forget that he was 'playing' all of the characters. Again, give this book a chance.
