Publisher's Summary

When their mother is hospitalized, Tara and Kyle are sent to stay with their only remaining relatives, their grandparents.
It's their first time meeting May and Peter Folcroft. The elderly couple seem friendly at first, and the house, hidden in the base of the mountains, is full of nooks to explore.
But strange things keep happening. The swing moves on its own. Peter paces around the house late at night and seems obsessed with the lake where his sister drowned. Doors slam and curtains shift when no one is inside. And one room is kept permanently locked.
When a storm cuts the phone line - their only contact with the outside world - Tara and Kyle must find a way to protect themselves from their increasingly erratic grandparents...and from the ghosts that inhabit the Folcrofts' house.

TERRIBLE

Its read by a bland annoying reader, the story is flawed, the whole experience was a waste of time and money.

Much like the film The Visit

So much like the film The Visit that I wonder if one or the other was deeply borrowed from or an adaptation of whichever came first (which I'm assuming was the book).

I enjoyed the first third or so of the book, the writing was okay, if a little meandering in places, and I was eager to see what was going to happen. When the big reveal came, though, like a lot of unfortunate modern horrors it descended into a plot that was absurd and bizarre rather than scary or exciting.

There's a lot of points that make the story a bit jarring after the first third and the action scenes stumble over themselves. Lost its way a bit. Got a bit silly.

Better haunted house scenario than a lot of books in which the family could easily have moved out or escaped the situation. But, saying that, the story would have been far more interesting and chilling if the ghosts were removed altogether.
