Book Review: In The Murder House

★★★☆☆ – 3 out of 5 stars

Moving to a historical Portland neighborhood after the death of his wife, Jason finds himself fighting against an evil paranormal force to rescue his daughter. The evil force is drawn back to the house following a séance at the neighbor’s house and once it’s there, Jason can’t keep on ignoring that it is terrifying his daughter. With the help of those same neighbors and his wife beyond the grave, he successfully traps the evil force and bringing peace to another tortured soul.

First off, I am easily drawn into any book that claims to take place in Portland, OR. However, all the name drops in this book seemed a tad out of place especially if you are unfamiliar with the city (for example, the main character visits OMSI with his daughter but the author never explains that OMSI is the Oregon Museum of Science and Industry). With that said, a 3 star rating is my base rate for anything I review (all books start at 3 stars and either work their way down or up). That is it wasn’t bad by any means but there wasn’t anything terribly wonderful about it either. It was a quick read (I read the majority of the book during my work breaks and finished it before turning in for the night) that held neither a satisfying nor unsatisfying ending.

I wouldn’t necessarily recommend this book to anyone in particular but if you’re looking for a quick paranormal read, then this would certainly fill that for you. You can get a free kindle version of this book from Amazon by clicking either the title or the image of the book.

Please note: I received this book for free from a LibraryThing Member giveaway in return for my honest review. All words and opinions are my own.
