Overview

Ella Reynolds knew from the first moment she walked into the old house someone or something was watching her. Waiting. Her husband's violent murder sent her spiraling into a world of grief and isolation, but Ella isn't alone. Who or what is responsible for her husband's death is still with her. Darkness has engulfed the past year of Ella's life. Everyday reality slips a little more between her fingers as she struggles to break free from her memories. She must look deeper into her past as well as the present to discover truth of her husband's homicide. A string of uncanny events takes place and practical explanations run thin as Ella follows the terrifying road to closure. As the past and present come to a head, Ella must decipher who or what the murderer is before it takes her as well.

Meet the Author

Many authors claim to have known their calling from a young age. Liz Schulte, however, didn't always want to be an author. In fact, she had no clue. Liz wanted to be a veterinarian, then she wanted to be a lawyer, then she wanted to be a criminal profiler. In a valiant effort to keep from becoming Walter Mitty, Liz put pen to paper and began writing her first novel. It was at that moment she realized this is what she was meant to do. As a scribe she could be all of those things and so much more.

When Liz isn’t writing or on social networks she is inflicting movie quotes and trivia on people, reading, traveling, and hanging out with friends and family. Liz is a Midwest girl through and through, though she would be perfectly happy never having to shovel her driveway again. She has a love for all things spooky, supernatural, and snarky. Her favorite authors range from Edgar Allen Poe to Joseph Heller to Jane Austen to Jim Butcher and everything in between.

Awesome spooky mystery. While i figured out 'who done it' 2/3rds into the story it was interesting to see how the writer pieced it all together, and there was a surprise ending which i liked.

I devoured horror stories growing up, with my favorite authors being Alfred Hitchcock and Edgar Allan Poe. There is just something about the old classic scary stories - hair raising, creepy without the gore. I have been craving those types of stories, but had figured they were gone with the times. Then along came Liz Shulte with her novel "Dark Corners" and finally - finally, a hair raising, creepy story that actually kept me guessing throughout the whole novel! This story takes place in an old, old home that had been handed down through Ella's husband's family for generations. Her husband was the last of the bloodline to inherit the home. From the time they moved in, weird things started happening inside the house, but it seemed Ella was the one who could see or hear them. Then, when she came home from a business trip, Ella found her husband murdered and was sure it had something to do with the house. The police and neighbors have another theory - that Ella killed her husband. So sets the stage of this paranormal thriller. Ella was a realistic character with enough pain and confusion about her husband's death that she self-medicates with alcohol and prescriptions that her psychiatrist gives her. One wonders if it is her imagination that is creating these events, but at other times, they are so real - so believable, that you can't help but think that they are true. I flip-flopped throughout the whole novel trying to figure out who, what, where, and why this was all going on. With all the twists, I hadn't a clue what was going on until pretty much the very end of the story and then by a lucky guess, figured it out! Move over Agatha Christie, Liz Shulte will give you a real run for your money with this story! Liz is an exceptionally captivating writer and I must say, after reading this, I CAN'T WAIT for her next novel to come out. This is definitely one author to keep an eye on! This book comes HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

Excellent story. Is it a ghost story or a mystery or both? Definately a page turner as you try to figure out what is happening. Highly recommend.

Great book! I could not put it down! I loved how the writer gave you insight to what happened to Ella's past while keeping you up to date at the same time.

2 Days . . . Heart Pounding . . . Noise Checking Madness That ends with the chills . . . Yep, this about sums up my experience with this book. I honestly don't want to give anything about this book away. However, I do want to suggest that you pick up a copy and get started reading right away. Be prepared to be confused, never really knowing who done it. Take all noise making objects out of the hands of others, because at some point you will begin to feel a little jumpy. Heck, last night I couldn't even sleep with my foot hanging outside of the covers. I experienced moments of heart pounding anxiety that had me putting the book down for a moment. Only to pick it back up because I swear it was calling my name. Then to top it off, it had to go and end with CHILLS!!! Very well written, bravo!!!

Good read with some odd gramatical error the way I like. She has an imagination that surpasses one own hopes. Each series keeps you wanting more and qustioning the sanity of he charactors.

I love horror novels, esp. ones about hauntings and was really looking forward to this from the description and the reviews. I found it heavy handed, over the top and what did it in for me was the totally off-putting main character, Ella. I found her completely unsympathetic and just unlikable. I could only make it through about 100 nook-pages, and then skipped to the last 10 pages. Was glad I hadn't wasted more time. I double checked on my order confirmation and was greatly relieved that the book had been free.

Three stars instead of four due to unlikeable protagonist and detail errors (for instance, about 200 pages in protagonist gets up in palamas, dresses presumably in street clothes, goes out still in her pajamas, and ends up in bloodied nightgown) that make it impossible to trust the narrative, not unlike old black and white B movies that were equally untrustworthy. Like those old movies, Dark Corners is still fun if you munch popcorn while reading and accept it for what it is.
