Book Review: Ghosts of Manor House by Matt Powers

Ghosts of Manor House

Ghosts of Manor House

Blurb:
Edmund and Mary Wilder are very much in love. But the death of their young son, Tommy, has shattered their family. Edmund is determined to bring them back together, drawing on the only bit of strength he has left—his love for Mary and their daughter, Stephanie. But Mary sinks deeper into depression while little Stephanie’s anger grows. Edmund flounders in his attempts to rescue his family from the brink of collapse and doesn’t know where to turn.

Then Mary receives an invitation for the family to become guests at Manor House, a seemingly quaint Bed and Breakfast. This, she assures her husband, is the answer to all their troubles.

Edmund arrives ahead of his family to spend a couple days working on his long-delayed novel. But his growing curiosity about the old house leads Edmund to an encounter that will change him forever.

What will you sacrifice for love?

An old fashioned psychological thriller with a nod to Stephen King, Manor House will keep you guessing and compel you to turn the page to the very end.

A mother will sacrifice anything for her children. A husband will risk everything to save his wife. Manor House will take them all.

Review:
4/5 stars
One could easily think that this is just another ghost story revolving around a haunted house. However, you will be proven wrong as soon as Edmund arrived at the Manor House, where the twists in the plot will keep you wanting to turn the pages as the story reveals more surprises. What I liked most is the non-human characters that are involved in the story and how these characters relate to Edmund, who wants to work on his novel.
If you’d want to watch a great horror movie, I would recommend you to read this book as it gives the exact same feeling of watching one.
