    Decorative Horror

    Tara Reed inherits her grandmother's house, nestled on a hill on the small hamlet of Road's End. Upon her arrival she's greeted by a garden gnome and other taciturn lawn decorations, and for a reason she can't explain they give her a feeling of unease. Being a down on her luck artist and needing a place to live she decides she'll get used to it for now and fix it later. She meets a new friend in the form of the town's sheriff, Jacob Tyler, and learns the discerning truth behind her grandmother's passing; something darker than a heart attack and deeper than natural. A feeling of unease begins to fill her nights and Tara is convinced somebody's trying to play a prank her. Needing a feeling of comfort her friends come visit for a weekend of fun and companionship. To late, they soon find out that its not a prank; no, its searingly more sinister than that. It's wicked and it wants to play.

    A very nice slow building suspense that explodes into a panoply of horror, suspense, and the supernatural. I'm not saying the novel moves slowly, the pacing is smooth and flows quite well. It's the build up that goes slow, a bump here, a giggle there, the right ambiance for the story being told.

    I enjoyed the book immensely, and hope Lauralynn decides to travel this genre more often.
