Review by: Ruth Ann Nordin on April 29, 2012 :
I really enjoy this horror novel. It starts out with Tara Reed inheriting her grandmother's house, and on the first day she moves in, the sheriff, Jake Tyler, warns her that even though her grandmother was reported as dying from a heart attack, she had made a call to 911 saying "something" was after her. This sets the stage for what happens in the rest of the book. At first, Tara notices small things, like strange noises and the lawm gnome shifting positions. She assumes it's a prank by some local kids having fun, but she's soon to find out it's far more sinister than that. When her friends come for a visit, they find themselves in a horrifying struggle for survival.

I won't spoil the book, but I will say I enjoyed not being able to tell what would happen next. I'd think the story was going to go in one direction, but it would veer off in another. I really liked the twist at the end on how the human sacrifice was resolved. It wasn't what I expected, and I thought it was a clever way to resolve things. Plus, it had a very sweet romantic subplot, so if you like some horror and mystery with a dose of romance, you might enjoy this book.
