Many thanks to Shannon and R & R Book Tours for my spot on this Blog Tour.
I picked up this book due to the haunting cover which gave me delicious shivers. What can I say, the cover pulled me into the story. My first book by author Misty Mount, saw me very undecided about what I felt for this book, which was divided into 3 parts.
The first part had the 3 Es Elliot, Eve, and baby Emma moving into the rural landscape to look after Elliot’s grandmother in their family home. Strange things happened when they came to know that they had a tenant in the attic, a real one according to the grandmother and a ghostly one according to the rest as nobody seemed to have seen her.
The second part was the past of the haunting stranger which gave me a clearer idea about the history and the mystery, and the third part was the amalgamation of the past with present with devastating results.
The book had its moments of suspense and thrill with the stranger playing hide and go seek in the first part. Misty’s writing gave an eerie, secluded feel to the entire mansion with its nooks and crannies. There was a sense of impending doom and horror waiting to happen. The characters, though not fleshed out well, behaved in odd, threatening ways which captured my interest. The second part felt a bit long to me, but evil pervaded the pages soon by the events shown. The third had the repercussion which made me excited.
This book pulled me in different directions, with my emotions evoked, giving me an overall feeling of fun of the unknown.
I received a free ARC from Shannon and R & R Book Tours, and this is my journey into its pages, straight from the heart!! STRICTLY HONEST AND UNBIASED.
All my reviews can be read here
Misty Mount has written since age five and was first published at fourteen. By day she’s a caregiver, wife, and mother to a young son but during the quiet hours of night she becomes a novelist.
“I read because my grandmother showed me how to immerse myself in books for recreation, relaxation or even as a coping skill.
I write because my head is filled with daydreams and I like to choose the endings.
When the Ericksons move home to care for their ailing grandmother, they’re told a stranger has taken up residence in the attic of the sprawling mansion. Upon investigation, the family isn’t sure the tenant is anything more than a figment of old Mrs. Erickson’s imagination—until a mysterious young woman begins to show herself to the family in fleeting, uncanny visits.
When unexplained things start happening under the mansion’s roof, suspicions arise as to just who—or what—she is. In the chaos that ensues, the family is forced to make a decision: trust the stranger or band together as a family against her—and their grandmother who’s protecting her.
