Robert Watts is having the worst day of his entire life. First he's laid off, then he finds out that his wife is having an affair, with his boss no less. And that's only the beginning.
Before the month is out, Robert finds himself alone to raise his daughter with no money, no job, and a house that is minutes from being repossessed. Just when he hits rock bottom, a strange visitor arrives at the doorstep of his soon to be foreclosed house with a letter from an aunt he didn't know existed.
The offer is simple: look after Aunt Ruth during her dying days, and in return Robert will be bequeathed the Harlop Estate in which she currently resides. It's a no-brainer and Robert jumps at the opportunity, equally motivated by the prospect of financial security as he is by a fresh start.
Problem is, it only takes a few nights in the Harlop Estate before he begins to question Aunt Ruth's claims that they are the home's only inhabitants.
It's the scratching he hears during the night, the voices that he can barely make out over the constant rain, and then there's the girl with the rat.
With their house foreclosed and their bank accounts liquidated, Robert and his daughter Amy desperately need a place to live. But the question Robert soon finds himself struggling with is whether living in the Harlop Estate is worth it, and if he can survive until Aunt Ruth passes to collect his inheritance.

There seemed to be so much filler left out of the story. Robert is given a house by a family member he has no idea about & yet doesn't seem to explore where this woman has come from despite looking after her. & when he realises there are ghosts in the house just accepts it without investigating why, until Shelly shows up explaining the history of the house. Robert seemed to just stumble along accepting everything at face value.
The ending was to rushed.
His voice was either flat or full of inflection & would go backward & forward, was so distracting. Had to speed up to 1.25 to get through the book.
I guess I don't find 'horror' stories scary. This did not scare or creep me out in anyway. I understand what the author was trying to do with the whole haunted house & everything is not as it seems concept, but was happy when finally finished & can move onto another story.
