A creepy story but without blood or gore. One of the better haunted house books.

Waaaaay too long and drawn out with superfluous stuff about the drawings one of the residents is producing for a book he's co-writing, the trials of a young boy in his new school, and the alcoholic hazes the third house owner spends his days in. The thread that ties the stories together concerns the realtor who keeps winding up with the house on her list, and she is a sympathetic character, at least.

Not a very scary book, and I admit I skimmed a lot of the filler. Could have been about 300 pages shorter.

started this but it just wasn't going anywhere fast and it wasn't keeping my interest so I'm sending it on

A typical haunted house book, with a slight twist. I started reading this when we moved into our new house. It proved to be interesting as my imagination was working while reading at night. LOL

362 Belisle St. is a homeowner's dream. Recently renovated, Victorian detail, good neighborhood, a steal at $95,900! Real estate agent Glenn Darnley wonders why this charming property keeps coming back on the market. Perhaps the clawed feet of the old bathtub look a litle too real. Or maybe it's the faint hospital-like smell of the room at the end of the hall. Or the haunting music that seems to come from nowhere...

Pretty good, though not as good as The House Next Door by Anne Rivers Siddons. Similar type of story.
