Where I Got It: My shelf (Amazon Freebie)

When Frank, Shelley and their two young children move into the home of their dreams, they discover a problem with the cellar.

It doesn't take them long to find out why the house was sold at a knock-down price.

I was looking for a quick and spooky read for over the weekend. I found this little gem as a freebie on Amazon. Short and spooky. 

The story follows Frank and his family. They move into a new house and it is the house of their dreams. Always too good to be true ;). They happen to find a cellar they were not aware of. Whelp…this is the reason why the house was sold super cheap. 

What I loved about this story was the fact that it is similar to other stories, BUT has one big difference. I will not spoil this. But it was unique and a cool idea. 

Poor Frank…poor Shelley. I cannot say, but I feel for them. 

This didn’t scare me until after I finished and thought about it for a bit. How horrible!!!! Ugh! Scary! There is no escape!!! LOL Read it and you’ll understand ;)

I am curious to see what happens next…but I like how this ended. A little bit of an open ending, but it worked well for this. Made it more goose-bumply (is that a word?). 

Overall, a nice story for the Halloween season! Nothing too scary, but it does make you get some goosebumps. I’ll give this 5 stars.

I'm not a horror fan - it's not that everything has to be sweet and nice but horror takes the dark side too far for me. Cheers
