    One house that will never be a home again,

    This was my first time reading Deborah LeBlanc but it certainly won't be my last. It's so refreshing to find a writer who makes all the hard work that goes into writing seem so effortless. Everything in this novel flows of the pages and can really be read in one day if one has time. When I read that as a kid Deborah wanted to read every book in her local library I knew I would like her and I was right. She's a writer who loves to read and that shows in her work. <BR/><BR/>The story itself is very original and convincing, with the hazy, warm bayou atmosphere and authentic accents written in. Deborah created a world that lured me in, made me care about each character and then made me fear for them when I remembered that this in deed is a horror book. Things start of enigmatic enough in late sixties when a whole family perishes under someone's hands in a grand house, located in Windham, Louisiana. Fast forward to the future and the house is suddenly no longer empty, but divided in half for the move into new location by Keith Lafleur, a greedy building contractor. What he doesn't know is the ways this one job will change him and the town forever. New people move into each half, single father with a young son, Matt and Seth open a café while across the yard Laura, Tawana and Angelica run a beauty shop in the other renovated half. Things go smoothly until one day something happens and their lives are turned upside down. Dead birds appear on their front yards, huge spider web with a sneaky spider biting and infecting people appears and then someone changes into a monster. I read mesmerized at what would happen next and enjoyed the creepy house tale about different people that were somehow connected through the old split up house. The past was directing the future and it was up to those who were brave and who had big hearts to save everyone from madness that swept the whole town. <BR/><BR/>Very enjoyable and quick read, great for Indian summer nights with a snack in one hand and book in the other and I agree with some reviewers that there were jokes and scares written in so well that it made for a great combo. Little comic relief here and there is not a bad thing. <BR/><BR/>- Kasia S.

    solid haunted house thriller

    In Crowly, Louisiana, avaricious building contractor Keith LaFleur and assistant acquisitions manager for Costless Drugs Patricia Egan meet to discuss moving a vast building. Keith explains to his brother-in-law and lead foreman Jeff Mabry who soon arrives that to accomplish the request in a week they will need to cut the building in half, move it in two parts, and then put back together. Keith and Jeff enter the edifice, but the contractor smells gas which his foreman does not. Next Keith feels something crawling on him, but nothing is there until something bites him. Other incidents follow. --- Once the house is divided, Laura Toups opens a beauty salon near Matt Daigle¿s Tin Cup establishment. They are attracted to one another and she likes his preadolescent son. However they will soon be caught up with the inexplicable events of the LaFleur project that become a little more dangerous with each ensuing episode. Unbeknownst to them, is the Devillier family tragedies. Meanwhile Keith, acting increasingly bizarre, dismisses claims that Morgan, the ghostly mother, is trying to prevent her building from being split as no one will separate her from her children even as a more mundane culprit is also at work. --- A HOUSE DIVIDED is a solid haunted house thriller that grips readers from the first moment that Keith sniffs gas and Jeff standing next to him does not. The haunting action-packed story line never slows down from that initial occurrence as it plays out on two complex levels. Though Keith displays no redeeming qualities, fans will enjoy this tense thriller because readers will empathize with most of the key cast members including Morgan. --- Harriet Klausner

    Great read.

    This was my second book by Le Blanc. She has become one of my fave authors now. Currently reading Morbid Curiosity. Grave Intent was first. All of them kept me flipping pages. I intend to read all of her books. Great read.

    Suspense just doesn't slow down.

    The gruesome effects of messing with someone else's home are really chilling. Can't imagine the goo. Then there's the little love attraction. Not bad and not interrupting the story line. But...hold your breath it isn't over yet.

    Surprisingly good

    I expected to be let down, as I so often am, but not this time. It wasn't scary but that didn't bother me because it was interesting. About 550 pages long, mild violence a little swearing and a slight supernatural element. It hints at romance but doesn't make you sit through it. I enjoyed it and think you will too.
