Elle is thrilled to spend a month minding the beautiful Gillespie property. More than an hour's drive from the nearest town and surrounded by forest, the aging mansion is ideal for someone seeking solitude.
But things start to go very wrong very quickly.
Elle discovers a crumbling graveyard nestled in the woods. It contains a generation of the house's residents, all with an identical year of death.
Scratching in the walls...slamming doors...whispers in the night...a locked room...
As Elle explores deeper into the house, she begins to unravel the property's dark and dangerous history. At its center is Jonathan Gillespie, a tyrannical cult leader and the house's original owner.
And, as Elle soon learns, just because he's dead doesn't mean he's gone.
Includes a bonus short story, "Crawlspace", which inspired Gillespie House.

expected more chills
this must be a young adult novel because it really doesn't have a real chill factor, although the narration was good.

Leaves you wondering what you just read.
What disappointed you about The Haunting of Gillespie House?
The story line is scattered at best, and your not really sure where the story takes place or what error the language the main character uses confuses you on what decade she exist in.
What could Darcy Coates have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?
Mentioned time line, established stronger plot line and leave out some of the useless small details and focus more on the "villian". Not enough leading up to the main encounter and the encounter was brief and underwhelming.
Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Laurel Schroeder?
The narrator was fine.
What character would you cut from The Haunting of Gillespie House?
Mrs. Gillespie could have easily have been single and taking a vacation or off to a businews conference, the mentioning of her husband was not needed and the words and space used on him could have further developed the main plot.
Any additional comments?
