THE HAUNTING OF LEIGH HARKER by DARCY COATES

Latest chiller from Darcy Coates tells the story of Leigh Harker, a single woman who lives alone in an old house…until now. She starts being visited in her bedroom in the middle of the night by a mysterious and frightening figure. The door under the stairs begins to rattle, as if someone—or something—is trying to get out from inside. Leigh starts to believe a malevolent entity has come to her once cozy home and now needs to find out why it’s here and what it wants!

Coates delivers another haunted house tale with a heavy dose of mystery and, at the same time, one of her most intriguing books yet. She gives us the tropes we’ve come to expect from her, a strong heroine, a haunted house and a mystery to be solved. She also throws us a curve, as this time, it’s a haunting told from the ghost’s point of view. It’s the specter who feels the living occupant of the home is the one haunting it, until the two join forces to solved the mystery behind the spirit’s demise and reason for it’s current presence in the house. It’s a spooky and fun tale, with some chilling surprises and a very unexpected twist early on. We have two very likable characters in Leigh and Sarah and it keeps you guessing till all is unsettlingly revealed in it’s final chapters. Overall, it’s simply one of Darcy Coates’ best books yet. This author has yet to disappoint! Her books definitely cry out to be adapted to film!
