Really, 3.5 more than 4. There's a good story in here, but the mixed-up chronology and the frankly unlikable main character detract from it.

The basic structure is really promising. She's a horror writer in a haunted house. Okay, tell me more. But too much of it is told rather than shown, and much too much of it is told in retrospect, a mode that should be used very sparingly for maximum effect. I think this would be a much stronger story if it started out with the couple moving in to the house, the ominous house bothering the woman and the man clueless, then have the husband's death take place at the hinge-point of the book instead of in the prologue. By the time the book starts, the way it is now, I already know too much, and the central premise of a horror novel, even a meta one like this, is that I don't yet know what's going on. It's more suspenseful if the husband isn't already dead. Then the woman's personality makes more sense, too: I get to see her at the beginning, optimistic or at least comparatively so, and then I'll sympathize with her when her husband is killed. As it is, it seems clear that her problems would be largely solved if she were to just move, and I therefore can't get it together to care about why she's so unpleasant.

Funny, snarky, scary story! This is a great book! Looking forward to reading the next book in the series "Dark Passing" as soon as I get done with this review. Thanks for the free read!
