ARC review: Just Like Home

Just Like Home

⭐⭐⭐⭐ 4 out of 5 stars

When Vera Crowder is called by her dying mother, she comes back home. After years of estrangement, she visits Daphne and explores the house, sorting out the contents of wardrobes and cupboards. It’s the house her bellowed father built with his own hands, according to his needs. The house many people believe to be haunted because of what happened inside…

Just Like Home is an easy and exciting read. The action is perfectly paced, with little bits of the Crowder House mystery revealed at the time. From the very beginning, we know that there is something wrong with Vera’s family. Some childhood trauma lurks in the shadows of her mind, together with a monster from under her bed and an imaginary friend. Something terrible happened in the Crowder House that antagonised the whole town against Vera, including her own mother. As readers, we receive chunks of the past intertwined with the present, so we can try to sort this puzzle. I have to say that I certainly did not expect the novel to go the way it did…

Sarah Gailey wrote a unique tale with unexpected plot twists and a surprising ending. I enjoyed reading it and would recommend it to fans of unusual and scary stories.
