Chelsea Quinn Yarbro recommends
thumb
House of Whispers (2007)
(Supernatural Properties, book 1)
Margaret Lucke
"Margaret Lucke has found a new twist on haunted houses, as well as presenting an intriguing mystery mixed with romance. This is a very promising series debut."
thumb
Mormama (2017)
Kit Reed
"Fitting on the horror scale somewhere between Shirley Jackson and John Farris, this tale of generational hauntings and family secrets, with an amnesiac filling in as Greek chorus, is one of the best predatory house tales I've come across in many years."
thumb
Shadows in the Stone (2019)
Jack Dann
"A stunning take on the Renaissance."
