#BookReview: No One's Home by D.M. Pulley

Synopsis: For fans of The Haunting of Hill House comes a dark tale of a mansion haunted by a legacy of tragedy and a family trapped by lies.

Margot and Myron Spielman move to a new town, looking for a fresh start and an escape from the long shadow of their past. But soon after they buy Rawlingswood, a foreclosed mansion rumored to be haunted, they realize they’re in for more of the same…or worse.

After a renovation fraught with injuries and setbacks, the Spielmans move in to the century-old house, and their problems quickly escalate. The home’s beautiful facade begins to crumble around them when their teenage son uncovers disturbing details of Rawlingswood’s history—a history of murder, betrayal, and financial ruin. The Spielmans’ own shameful secrets and lies become harder to hide as someone or something inside the house watches their every move.

As tensions build between the family members, the home’s dark history threatens to repeat itself. Margot and Myron must confront their own ghosts and Rawlingswood’s buried past before the house becomes their undoing.

My Review: 
 I was excited when I first started to read the book but started losing interest part of the way through it. While this book was well written I feel the author could have left out half of the book. The flipping back and forth between the four families was a little distracting. Overall I enjoyed the book, however the murders and ghosts made it worthwhile.

“A haunting, Gothic story of a Shaker Heights mansion with a troubled history and turbulent present…Pulley creates a powerful sense of dread…” Cleveland Plain Dealer
No One’s Home showcases author D. M. Pulley’s extraordinary narrative storytelling skills and genuine flair for originality.” —Midwest Book Review
“A door creaks open. A footstep thumps on an empty floor above. A light turns on in a room left dark. In every silent room and black corner of No One’s Home, D. M. Pulley weaves threads of hypnotic suspense with the sad strands of a family lost to one another. With an elegantly restrained hand that stops mercifully shy of showcasing the unbearable, Pulley has created a contemporary intelligent thriller that can stand with the canon of the legendary Shirley Jackson.” —Amber Cowie, bestselling author of Rapid Falls
“Disturbing and creepy. D.M. Pulley does a masterful job of introducing the reader to families who, at different points in time, are forced to experience life in the same menacing house. Reminds me of Shirley Jackson’s The Haunting of Hill House, and I loved every second of it!” —Matthew Farrell, bestselling author of What Have You Done
“HGTV meets Stephen King—creepy, spooky fun!” —Mary Doria Russell, author of The Sparrow and The Women of Copper Country
