Jennifer McMahon has done it again. Every single time, she delivers a completely new experience and a fantastically creepy story line. The Invited, her newest, is no exception.
Helen and Nate decide to escape the city, but they cannot find a house that meets all their requirements. That all changes when they spot a huge piece of rural, Vermont property that is, of course, suspiciously cheap.
And it includes swamp land.
And it once belonged to Hattie, who was hanged as a witch… in the 1920s. (If I’m remembering correctly. In any case, it was definitely a very late date for a witch hanging).
And they decide to build a house to suit.
And the happy couple find themselves building a house made for a haunting.
There is also a girl mourning the loss of her mother who left rather abruptly, a treasure hunt, some suspicious spiritualists, an albino deer hunt, more than one ghostly figure and a whole lot of heart.
If you have not read McMahon before, you really should. This is my fourth or fifth, and not one has disappointed. I’m so glad that my anticipation surrounding this book was duly rewarded. What a GREAT scary story!
