Creepy ghost stories are the best!

When the Holt family moves into Baneberry Hall, strange occurrences start to happen.  After several weeks, the family leaves abruptly, not taking any of their belongings, and doesn’t return.

25 years later, Maggie Holt returns to Baneberry house after her father’s passing. She doesn’t remember her time living in this home but thanks to her father’s best-selling book, the whole world knows what happened during their time in Baneberry Hall.  Or do they?  Was the book full of lies or did those awful things really happen?  Only one way to find out!

This is my first Sager read and I am now a huge fan!  The creepy factor was pretty high throughout the book for me. Truly terrifying images have now been planted in my brain to be remembered at 4:54 am (thanks for that!), which is, of course, exactly what you want out of a creepy, ghost story.

Very well written, the intensity climbing with each new chapter, you may find yourself getting quite anxious before it’s all said and done. And you may never look at The Sound of Music the same way again! 😊
