Doesn't everyone want to move their family to an old house in the country away from the city? Emma did but life didn't turn out like she could have ever imagined! I was grabbed into the storyline from the beginning. It was a well written suspense book with very strong paranormal happenings. Personally, I loved the creepy goings on in the house but was glad I didn't live there. Things got so bad, two brothers come in to rid the house of its evil entities. This is a good spooky book to read and even had a touch of romance in the story. Looking for a late night read, this is a good one. Just keep the lights on! * I was provided an ARC to read from the publisher and NetGalley. It was my decision to read and review this book.

Do you like things that go bump in the night? Have you ever felt an unexplainable touch that sent the hairs on your neck on full alert? Maybe you just moved and the new place has unfamiliar creaks and groans…Welcome to DEVIL’S BAIT by Debbie Boek where one old house may have more than just architectural character and the new owners may not be the only occupants. For Emma and her family, this seemed like a good move. Sure, the house needed a lot of work, but it was far safer to raise a family in the country than in the big city, right? She never expected she would be calling anyone to rid her home of the evil that resides within. Debbie Boek does a marvelous job of creating a dark and ominous atmosphere for evil in the haunted house that Emma’s family has moved into. Needing the services of more than one “paranormal exterminator” was an even better twist, but she doesn’t stop there. The tension is ratcheted up when Emma discovers her marriage is in big trouble. It’s almost like getting two stories in one, until even Emma finds a love interest outside of her marital bond. A taut thriller, an okay romance. I was all on board, waiting for both subplots to evolve, but they weren’t equally developed. The romance felt out of place for me, even the whole marriage on the rocks thing. Surely, I was selfishly wanting one plus the other in equal measures, or maybe just a five-star thriller, which I did get!

Devil's Bait by Debbie Boek is a well written thriller that will take you on a wild ride. If you like things that go bump in the night with no seeming explanation, then this book is for you. When Emma and her family move into an older home, one that needs massive restoration, they are mostly excited. Well, maybe Emma's daughter isn't too excited. But the chance for a new beginning is a positive note, and they are on they way to a new adventure in a new town. When odd things begin to happen, Emma begins to question her sanity, and if in fact, this was a good move. With her marriage hanging in the balance, and two brothers who come to solve the issue of the unexplained in the house, Emma will face challenges she has never faced before. This is a solidly written thriller with a familiar tone, but with the added element of emotion that takes over for the main character. A book that will keep you up for a few hours, Devil's Bait is an easy read, and a pleasant if at times kind of scary story. Highly recommend.
