    1. The key to supernatural stories of all varieties is atmosphere and The House has it in abundance. The sense of Southern place and Gothic location is perfectly evoked by the author, who has a knack for stunningly poetic turns of phrase when it comes to description and the thought processes of her characters.The characters are well crafted and balanced between those of the contemporary world and its haunted past - with particular mention going to Patricia Helmsworth who adds an excellent touch of [...]


    2. First, let me say that I'm not a big reader of scary books because I'm a total wuss. Having said that, I really enjoyed The House. It is well-written and has a light-hearted New Adult feel, even if at times it was too scary for me to read late at night, just in case I needed to get up in the dark for a drink of water (thank heavens I don't have stairs). The characters are exceptionally well-drawn and the family dynamics will draw you in almost as much as the riveting, spooky plot.Of course, as f [...]


    3. The thing I enjoy most in much of Heather Adkins' writing is the family dynamic portrayed among the characters, whether it is the thrust of the story as in *Cause & Effect* or a smaller, largely self-made part of the central character's world, as in her Vale Avari stories (like *The Temple*). As *The House* is the story of the Owens family moving into an old ancestral property which still carries a dark legacy from the past, the interplay between Sue, her siblings, and parents, forms the sol [...]


    4. Susan and her family are moving into her grandmother’s house in Florida. But there is something odd about the house. The first thing is although it is a bright sunny day; the house seems dark and dreary. Later that first night, Susan hears screams and chains rattling over her bed and they discovery an old slaves chambers. When Susan and her sister see a stranger walking through the property that seemingly disappears, they start to get worried. When Susan finds a picture of the stranger in an o [...]


    5. **** Suspenseful ****Everyone knows that old homes tend to settle, creak and groan. Adkins takes it one step further and adds in some really old inhabitants (ghosts) that just don’t want to leave. Her ability to spin heart pounding spookiness will make you want to turn on all the lights in your home. With ease she’s able to pull you right into the family dynamic and make it real. And then for extra good measure she threw in a little romance on the side.My one and only negative is that the en [...]


    6. Unfortunately I am sort on time and can't give it the proper review it deserves. I loved this book. A good haunted house story which did NOT end in a scientific explanation of the haunting (that is a pet peeve of mine when it comes to haunting books - let it stay a haunting). I thought the characters where great, I liked the "romance" part of the book - it wasn't over done by any means, or take away from the story. I would of probably given it 5 stars if she would of gotten a little deaper with [...]


    7. I like anything 'ghostly' and The House is a great addition to that topic. Not only does Ms Adkins write ghosts well, but she also added a drop of romance and a whole lot of family drama, all which contribute to make this novel a riveting read that will make you look over your shoulder at the slightest sound - especially after dark!


    8. Great thriller/ghost story. My only complaint is that the closing paragraph set it up for more story but it doesn't seem like this is supposed to be part of a series. In a way I kind of wish that last little bit had been left out.



    9. Absolutely loved this book! It made my hospital stay much more bearable, as I couldn't stop reading it. Thank you, Heather! Next up - Abigail.
