This was actually a pretty good haunted house story that I got for a discount on Kindle. I enjoyed it; I appreciated that fact that the main character was brave and faced the house's demons. And made friends doing it! Nice little twist at the end, too.

Yes, that wasn't much of a review. In a nutshell, a young lady inherits a big house. I think it's England, there was talk of boots instead of trunks and being in hospital, stuff like that. The house is, of course, haunted. She has. . .quite a time. It's not slasher, not gory, again, pretty good. ( )

The Haunting of Ashburn House by Darcy Coates is a 2016 publication.

Effective and Entertaining

Ashburn House has enjoyed a sinister reputation for nearly a century. When the current owner of the old house dies, her sole heir, Adrienne, inherits the house.

Adrienne is in no position to turn down her inheritance. She has twenty dollars to her name, one suitcase, and her cat. But, holding on to the legendary house becomes a living nightmare when she learns about the Ashburn's horrifying history, and the puzzling mystery that haunts it.

Soon Adrienne is faced with a shocking dilemma as the ghosts of the past refuse to be silenced…

This is my first book by Darcy Coates. I have seen her books listed in the Kindle Unlimited program and noticed she was quite prolific and popular. But, when a relative read one of her books last fall for Halloween and enjoyed it, I decided I would give her a chance someday.

Normally, I reserve my traditional horror reading for Halloween, and even then, it is only to re-read favorites or to read classics I never got around to previously. Newer horror novels are a hard sell for me as so many of them lack atmosphere and rely too heavily on gore and gratuitous violence.

But, I am always a sucker for a good haunted house or ghost story, and due to all the lunacy of 2020, I have dabbled in any and all genres, hoping for something to keep my mind busy and entertained for a while

So, in the height of summer, when daylight lingers past 9 PM, at a time when I am normally engaged in lighter reading, I am instead reading a good old-fashioned horror novel- and what an entertaining ride it was!

The story has a great atmosphere, a terrific backstory and some superficial chills and thrills and suspense. No, this novel is not the in league with some of horror novel heavy weights I usually rely on and am accustomed to. In fact, it could be easily be labeled as ‘horror novel lite' but that suits me just fine- and happened to be what I needed to escape into at the moment.

It’s a quick, absorbing read, and works even without the mood setting chill of a dark, cold winter’s night curled up by the fire listening to what you hope is the wind howling… and not something else… ( )

I was unimpressed until WOLF CAME THROUGH! ( )

Another extraordinary "fix" for the ghost story "junkie". For years I devoured every book that Barbara Michaels could turn out. My favorite of all time was "Ammie Come Home". I've read it and reread until the pages fell out and the cover "gave up the ghost" (no pun indented)... after which my daughter replaced it...twice now. Suddenly her books stopped. A year ago I found a writer that could give Barbara a run for her moneyin the ghost story department...Darcy Coates. So far I have read 6 of her books and found that while all of them have been exceptional with just the right amount of haunts to produce goose bumps and chills..."The Haunting of Ashburn House" is currently my absolute favorite. The author placed Adrienne in the house with little other choices available to her...no money...no phone...a laptop that quits on her...and a big gray lovable cat for company. She finds cryptic notes all over the place scratched in the wallpaper, the kitchen table, and the headboard of the bed put there by her late great-aunt who had willed her the house. Strange things start to happen around sundown and it becomes a struggle for survival...but some things just shouldn't survive. Anyone that loves ghost stories should give Darcy Coates a try. ( )

3.5 stars. Entertaining ghost story. Darcy Coates can tell a story but her writing skills aren't up to going it alone. Several times I was jarred out of the story be particularly clumsy lines that appeared to be something I am sure a professional editor would have asked her to remove or at least rewrite. ( )
