“Mom seems off.”

Her brother’s words echo in Sam Montgomery’s ear as she turns onto the quiet North Carolina street where their mother lives alone.

She brushes the thought away as she climbs the front steps. Sam’s excited for this rare extended visit, and looking forward to nights with just the two of them, drinking boxed wine, watching murder mystery shows, and guessing who the killer is long before the characters figure it out.

But stepping inside, she quickly realizes home isn’t what it used to be. Gone is the warm, cluttered charm her mom is known for; now the walls are painted a sterile white. Her mom jumps at the smallest noises and looks over her shoulder even when she’s the only person in the room. And when Sam steps out back to clear her head, she finds a jar of teeth hidden beneath the magazine-worthy rose bushes, and vultures are circling the garden from above.

To find out what’s got her mom so frightened in her own home, Sam will go digging for the truth. But some secrets are better left buried.

Are you looking to read a book featuring magic, monsters, vultures, family secrets, and creepy grandmothers?  Yes?  Then you should definitely read the latest horror/fantasy from T. Kingfisher!  Thank you Tor Nightfire and NetGalley for the eARC.  I had a fun time reading T. Kingfisher’s latest book!

Sam Montgomery goes back to her childhood home in North Carolina to check on her mother, who has been acting quite strange lately. There are dark family secrets lurking in the old house on the quiet street. Can Sam uncover the shocking truth before it’s too late?

T. Kingfisher has become an auto-buy author for me. I love her clever writing and immersive storytelling. A House With Good Bones is the perfect blend of horror, fantasy, and humor. I definitely recommend this one! I look forward to Kingfisher’s next book.

Thanks For Reading!
