Home Before Dark; Riley Sager

PROLOGUE

July 1

"DADDY, YOU NEED TO CHECK FOR GHOSTS."

I paused in the doorway of my daughter's bedroom, startled in the way that all parents get when their child says something confounding.  Since Maggie was five, I suppose I should have been used to it.  I wasn't. Especially with a request so unexpectedly odd.

"I do?"

"Yes, Maggie said, insistent. I don't want them in my room."

What do you think, pass or read more?

  2. That would freak me out too!! I'd probably go... why don't you just come to my room and we'll both get some sleep lol (Assuming I was about to step right into a ghostly/horror film...)

    Today I am sharing a Tuesday Teaser here.

  6. Doesn't really do it for me, Diane, but I lost my taste for horror a few years ago and it never came back. So it's probably just me.

  7. I would pass, but I'm not a scary-book reader.

  8. If one of my kids had said that to me it would have freaked me out! Going to see what it's about.

  13. I can't wait to read this! (I hope there really are ghosts!) I've heard so many good things about this author, but haven't had a chance to dive in yet.
