I believe this is my first Darcy Coates book. The Haunting of Ashburn House is the story of a down on her luck gal, looking to start anew. Looking to reshape her life, and with a little luck, keep a roof over her head while feeding her overly fed cat, Wolfgang. What she winds up with is a house full of secrets, mysterious lurkers in the woods and a family history better left alone!
The Haunting of Ashburn House was cute. It wasn't a great read, but it was very good- for a couple of reasons. It's written well and made to be enjoyed. but the thoughts of Adrienne cracked me up from start to finish. My favorite part was when she was anxious to have people to talk to her; her psyche whispering: "Friend" overtime something positive took place or was said. I loved it!
Though the story in itself is amazing, I didn't like Addy's lack of making Ashburn hers. She inherited a humongous house and she didn't really care for it or decorate. She talked about how grubby the windows were, but she never cleaned them. She had TONS of books to read, but did she read any? Did she check to see if any were a diary.... Nope! She had so much opportunity to discover thing from Aunt Edith, but she didn't take advantage of any of them. There were a few conflicts within the story, like the story is American, but she stated distance in kilometers- not a big deal, but off. Also, Also, she only freaking ate Cup O' Noodles... is that a real thing? People really eat that for lunch and dinner? Anyway...
The Haunting of Ashburn House, by Darcy Coates, is a great read. Not gory, not gross and written like a true haunt. I loved every bit and may even go out and check out a few more of her books. Please, don't hesitate to download this book. You will like it!
