Is the place really haunted by evil forces, as her father claimed? Or are there more earthboundand dangeroussecrets hidden within its walls? What was it like? Living in that house. Maggie Holt is used to such questions. Twenty-five years ago, she and her parents, Ewan and Jess, moved into Baneberry Hall, a rambling Victorian estate in the Vermont woods. They spent three weeks there before fleeing in the dead of night, an ordeal Ewan later recounted in a nonfiction book called House of Horrors. His tale of ghostly happenings and encounters with malevolent spirits became a worldwide phenomenon, rivaling The Amityville Horror in popularityand skepticism. Today, Maggie is a restorer of old homes and too young to remember any of the events mentioned in her father's book. But she also doesn't believe a word of it. Ghosts, after all, don't exist. When Maggie inherits Baneberry Hall after her father's death, she returns to renovate the place to prepare it for sale. But her homecoming is anything but warm. People from the past, chronicled in House of Horrors, lurk in the shadows. And locals aren't thrilled that their small town has been made infamous thanks to Maggie's father. Even more unnerving is Baneberry Hall itselfa place filled with relics from another era that hint at a history of dark deeds. As Maggie experiences strange occurrences straight out of her father's book, she starts to believe that what he wrote was more fact than fiction. Alternating between Maggie's uneasy homecoming and chapters from her father's book, Home Before Dark is the story of a house with long-buried secrets and a woman's quest to uncover themeven if the truth is far more terrifying than any haunting.

Maggie Holts far har precis dött och hon har ärvt huset som hon trodde att hennes föräldrar sålde för länge sedan. Baneberry Hall, huset bakom pappas bästsäljare House of Horrors. Maggie bestämmer sig för att återvända till herrgården för att ta reda på varför familjen flydde från huset för tjugofem år sedan och om det finns någon sanning bakom spökhistorierna.

Det här var en riktigt spännande historia och en riktig sidvisare. Jag stannade upp för sent på kvällen och läste eftersom jag var tvungen att se vad som hände nästa gång. Boken hade många vändningar och många spöklika stunder. Jag tycker att mixen mellan dagens och kapitel från boken var fantastisk.
