This is a deep book. It's not just a haunt, or spooky moments, but it contains terror through historical fiction. Des is my favorite character by far for her resilience and intuition. I'm glad I looked up the story once and forgot most of it before going in. The journey was more fulfilling not expecting pure horror, which had its moments.

Eric, Dess and Stacy Ross are such loveable characters, it's impossible to not connect with them and root for their safety and success. The Texas setting felt real and scary. But, if you're reading The Spite House strictly for the horror, then the star of this story is the Masson House, a deeply haunted house built for vengeance in a place cursed by its terrible history. A ghost story with heart and history. 3.5 stars
½

This is a haunted house story where the ghosts are very much real, and I liked it a lot. The story is really less about the house itself, however, but about how people allow certain emotions to consume them. Very well done and recommended.

W O W!!! This is not your average haunted house story. Eric and his two daughters are on the run from something mysterious and not disclosed to the reader. Is he a criminal? Why is his wife not with them? A rich old woman in Texas hires him to be a caretaker in her extremely famous haunted spite house that she has inherited but won't set foot in. Her only request? To write down his observations to prove there is paranormal activity present. So, it seems pretty straightforward, right? WRONG. This book keeps you guessing, makes you keep turning the page and has some truly horrifying reveals. So creepy, so suspenseful and such great characters. Be prepared to be thinking about these folks long after you finish.… (mais)
