When we begin, Chloe and her younger sister Sarah, have inherited the Manor from their reclusive Uncle Vincent. The last tragedy recorded there was when Chloe was only six years old, and was staying there as her parents helped her Uncle and his partner, Marcus.
". . . the past couldn't hurt them."
Chloe's family were the only survivors.
Having no recollection of anything during that time, Chloe doesn't hesitate to urge her husband to move there, along with their young child, and co-heir sister.
". . . Back to Devil's House . . . "
I will admit, I felt the "connection" between the characters was forced somehow, and many of their conversations/actions just didn't feel . . . authentic. . . to me.
However, while I had a difficult time with these characters and their motivations, the atmosphere and history of the Manor captured my undivided attention. The scenes that dealt with the house itself and its sordid history were mesmerizing, to say the least, and some of the minor characters brought more interest and mystery to it.
"This house is special. It is, I believe, alive."
By the end of the novel, the characters were starting to grow on me, and some scenes with them were more "believable" than they were in the first three-quarters or so.
". . . Once you saw what was behind the veil, how could you ever unsee it? . . . "
Overall, while the characters didn't do much for me in the beginning, the Manor itself certainly did! The ending scenes made quite an impression on me, and I've already preordered the next installment.
these days I'm too busy to sit and read, so audio books give me a chance to still enjoy books while I multitask. sadly, I'll have to pass on the rest of this series until I get reading time, because they've used the same narrator for all Mountford's books, and I can't stand this guy.
And then again, what horror/haunted story doesn’t draw on the plots of those that have gone before.
Only a few typos and one plot mistake in book 3 when the story says the house was bought by the deceased owner vs in book 1 when the story line says it was handed own in the family. It you’re looking for easy entertainment in the horror/haunted genre I’d say solid. It’s not going to make you think deeply, change your life or scare you for weeks on end like some other good reads.

Sisters, Chloe & Sarah inherit Perron Manor from their late estranged uncle; a stately home saturated in horrific history (read Inside: Perron Manor). To begin with, a bump in the night here and a phantom knock at the door there are easily dismissed, but Lee has a talent for simmering the pot, steadily bringing it to the boil with a heinous finale.
Wonderful well written plot and story line that had me engaged from the start.
Love the well fleshed out characters and found them believable.
Great suspense and found myself second guessing every thought I had continuously.
Can't wait to read what the author brings out next.
