A Guest in the House by Emily Carroll

Staff Pick

Abby is newly married to her small town’s fresh face, David, but why did he choose her? She’s plain, quiet, and unsure. Nevertheless, she takes care of her spouse and stepdaughter, Crystal, dutifully preparing dinner, keeping house, and staying out of the way. But secrets surround her predecessor; David’s first wife and Crystal’s mother, Sheila. Abby knows she died, but no one can tell her how. No one except for Sheila herself, who haunts Abby in her lakeside home and slowly unravels the mysteries David has weaved. Still, all is not what it seems. A master of graphic horror, Carroll delivers another bone-chilling tale sure to keep you wide-eyed and guessing—and maybe sleeping with the light on.
