The Haunting of Gillespie House by Darcy Coates

The Haunting of Gillespie House 
By Darcy Coates


Elle can't believe her luck; she's spending a month house-sitting the beautiful Gillespie property. Hidden near the edge of the woods and an hour's drive from the nearest town, its dark rooms and rich furniture entice her to explore its secrets. There's even a graveyard hidden behind the house, filled with tombstones that bear an identical year of death. 

If only the scratching in the walls would be quiet… 

The house’s dark and deadly history quickly becomes tangled with Elle’s life. At the centre of it is Jonathan Gillespie, the tyrannical cult leader and original owner of the house. As Elle soon learns - just because he’s dead, doesn’t mean he’s gone.

My Review:

I couldn't put this book down! What a great story! You can easily lose yourself in this book. Darcy is a very talented wordsmith that tells a twisted tale of a cult leader who ruled his family with an iron fist. Elle is an easy character to fall in love with and I felt myself catching my breath as she made her way through the mystery as it unraveled. This book has me hooked on Darcy Coates and her writing! It is such an awesome and exciting story with so many twists and turns. I truly enjoyed this book and highly recommend it.
