This was a great book. It was well written with lots of edge of your seat moments and exciting scenes. I read the first few chapters during the day at work and decided to read late one night when I was putting the baby to bed. Mistake! I got interested and couldn’t put the book down. When I finally tore myself away, I went upstairs in a dark house with everyone asleep. I stayed up forever being scared. I guess I am a sissy. Just tell me what you think after you put it down and your whole house is dark and quiet.You can keep up with Liz Schulte on her Blog, Twitter, or Facebook.
About Dark Corners
Ella Reynolds knew from the first moment she walked into the old house someone or something was watching her. Waiting. Her husband’s violent murder sent her spiraling into a world of grief and isolation, but Ella isn’t alone. Who or what is responsible for her husband’s death is still with her. Darkness has engulfed the past year of Ella’s life. Everyday reality slips a little more between her fingers as she struggles to break free from her memories.
She must look deeper into her past as well as the present to discover truth of her husband’s homicide. A string of uncanny events takes place and practical explanations run thin as Ella follows the terrifying road to closure. As the past and present come to a head, Ella must decipher who or what the murderer is before it takes her as well.
I am going to come right out and say that I was bored for the first chapter or so of this book. I read the description and thought, ohhh, suspense, mystery, and cliffhangers! I was not impressed by the first chapter and thought maybe I made a mistake. Gradually though as I read, I started wondering who killed her husband. I was even thinking maybe this is one of those twist books and she really is the one who killed her husband but it wasn’t her, it was a multiple personality scenario. Hey, I read a lot of murder mysteries! It can happen. Also, I never once thought the ghosts/haunted house weren’t real like some of the characters in the book obviously did. I guess I just take ghosts for granted but I didn’t think they murdered her husband.
I really ended up liking Ella. She had a lot of depth as a character and I could really feel her pain. She believed her house killed her husband and no one believed her. They all pitied her or were scared of her. I really liked the flashbacks in the book. They made her character come alive. I also really enjoyed the explorations of the house. Every time they went in, I was on the edge of my seat!
