Death never did come quietly for Bliss House . . . and now a mother and daughter have become entwined in the secrets hidden within its walls.

Amidst the lush farmland and orchards in Old Gate, Virginia, stands the magnificent Bliss House. Built in 1878 as a country retreat, Bliss House is impressive, historic, and inexplicably mysterious. Decades of strange occurrences, disappearances and deaths have plagued the house, yet it remains vibrant. And very much alive.

Rainey Bliss Adams desperately needed a new start when she and her daughter Ariel relocated from St. Louis to Old Gate and settled into the house where the Bliss family had lived for over a century. Rainey’s husband had been killed in a freak explosion that left her 14 year-old daughter Ariel scarred and disfigured.

At the grand housewarming party, Bliss House begins to reveal itself again. Ariel sees haunting visions: the ghost of her father, and the ghost of a woman being pushed to her death off of an upper floor balcony, beneath an exquisite dome of painted stars. And then there is a death the night of the party. Who is the murderer in the midst of this small town? And who killed the woman in Ariel's visions? But Bliss House is loath to reveal its secrets, as are the good folks of Old Gate.

I was lucky enough to win a signed copy of Bliss House in a contest. However, I had already decided that I had to read it after seeing a very positive review of it by one of my favorite authors. I could not put it down! This intriguing story grabs your attention from the very beginning and never lets you go...!

I was counting down the days till this book's release date. I was that excited to read it. I was not disappointed, nor will you be. Like all of Laura Benedict's novels, it will hook you from the first page and keeps you guessing to where she is going to bring you.

There is nothing scary, atmospheric, or unpredicatable about this book. Take my advice, skip it!

You may not want to stay at Bliss House - especially, if you are related to the Bliss'. WOW! If you like a book that keeps you on the edge of your seat, with the lights on, that you cannot put down - this is THE book for you! Benedict weaves a mystery that you cannot resist, combining the past and the present so that you will not know "who done it" until the very end! This series is fantastic - but you do not have to read them in the order that they are written!
