Publisher's Summary

Dean and Jess knew the house had a tragic past but it did not stop them from making the move with their young daughters. It was supposed to be a new - and bigger - home with which they could continue to build upon their already established happy memories but as the house's past begins to haunt them they realize it is not the dream they first hoped it to be.
From Matt Shaw (author of The Cabin, Happy Ever After and Sick B*stards) comes a new novella; a tale of psychological horror and slow-building tension leading to an unforgettable climax.

What a let-down!

What disappointed you about A House in the Country?

Can appreciate there are short stories but this just didn't have enough time or quality to go anywhere - got to the end and just thought 'so what'?!! :-/

Has A House in the Country put you off other books in this genre?

Not at all! BUT wouldn't be tempted to read any more of author's books!

How did the narrator detract from the book?

Pseudo-creepy , condescending voice! Nearly gave up a couple times but hoped the story would be a good one - but being as it wasn't, feel let down and cheated on that book.

You didn’t love this book--but did it have any redeeming qualities?

It had the potential to be BETTER that's the sad and unfortunate thing!

Any additional comments?
