Reviews The Carrow Haunt

  • Kimberly
    THE CARROW HAUNT is the latest novel from author Darcy Coates. This novel had so much in terms of genre-overlap! We have horror in many forms: supernatural, psychological, a long-dead serial killer, gruesome deaths, ghosts, gore, and bodies. Also present is a strong thriller/detective element that had me second guessing just about every idea that I attempted to predict. "Welcome, dear ones, to the dreaded Carrow House." Remy Allier gives guided t...

    The Carrow Haunt is Darcy Coates newest release. It's about a girl named Remy that gives tours of the famously haunted Carrow House. On one of her tours, a guest asks if she will proposition the owner to allow a group of people including Remy, to stay at Carrow House for a couple of weeks in order to study the paranormal phenomena up close and personal. Not willing to pass up a chance to experience some of the sightings she talks about in her tou...

    The newest Darcy Coates and I was so so so excited to start reading this one. I just had all the right elements and I just couldn't wait. Darcy Coates always knows how to write a great horror/haunted story, and this one also featured a group of people going to stay at a very very haunted place. What could go wrong? I couldn't wait for them to go exploring, for them to delve deeper into the mystery.And there were exciting parts, but sadly at times...

    This story was a deliciously creepy slow burn, with lots of history of the house being discussed - which was plenty scary enough all by itself to keep me turning pages. Then we are teased a little longer with minor incidents happening that leave us with more questions than answers, and just when I thought I might be a little bored (gasp!) - the action really kicks into high gear and things go very, very wrong. I was actually wondering at one poin...
  • Emily
    Wow, where to begin with this book? I went to bed last night just intending to read a chapter or two and finished the entire second half in a single sitting- always a good sign, though not for my sleeping patterns.Most texts by this author follow a quite familiar pattern and contain similar plot-based ingredients: 1. There is a spooky house 2. The main character because isolated and unable to leave the property due to financial/emotional/physical...

    Where has Darcy Coates been in my life? Why have I never heard of her prior to this? This book was amazingly suspenseful. I wouldn't classify it as horror necessarily, which is great because if things get too gory my stomach nopes out. But I love suspense and thrillers and anything in the vein of horror (minus the gore) so this was perfect for me. I kept turning the pages and moving on to the next chapter and I was miserable anytime I had to pull...
  • Johanna
    I do love a good haunted house, and Carrow house has a grisly reputation. Unfortunately, the novel is executed more like a Nancy Drew book than a horror novel and "The Carrow Haunt" often has an upbeat feel despite the Gothic setting. This may be because Remy is such a positive and endearing protagonist. I never believed that the author would let any real harm come to Remy, hence I never really feared for the safety of the characters. One thing I...
  • Cheri Schaefer

  • Christina Torretta
    I love horror books that have haunted houses. Houses can be eerie even without all the background, but walk into a house with a lot of background information, or deaths, and you have a horror just waiting to happen.This book actually reminded me of a mixture between Rose Red by Stephen King and The Poltergeist. It was very well done!Full review coming soon to
  • Margaret
    Got the email, got the book and read it right away and, Boy, was it a good read! Over 2 nights and 1 day, I read it through unable to put it down. It proved to be well worth it. The characters, Remy, Mark, April, Lucille, Marjorie etc, were so well rounded out it made it easy to picture the scenes created but I would have lost my way in that house!
  • Beth
    Really good book!This book was amazing! In the first chapter it was kinda boring I couldn't get into it and with me being nosey I read on, by a few chapters before the middle Is when it really started getting good! For me it was like reading it and picturing it like a movie. It was really good!
  • Stacey
    A haunted house tour guide joins with a group of 7 to investigate Carrow House. This books reminds me a little of The Haunting and a little of The Shining mixed with a murder mystery. I loved it. The story sucks you in and you think you know where it’s going until you realize you don’t. Kudos to Darcy for another great story!
  • Lora Edwards
    I love all of Darcy's books but this one was by far my favorite. It had great characters was super creepy and had a bit of a love story in the background. I really like how she did the epilogue and being able to visit the characters a little bit in the future and see how they are doing. Fantastic read.
  • Barbara L. Rose
    Not your usual ghost story!Darcy never disappoints me. Her plots have hidden twists and turns. The characters are unique and come alive in the story. A few minor editing errors, but not enough to ruin the experience. I highly recommend this one. Enjoy!
  • Abigail M.Q.
    Best work yetThis author has grown in skill since her early works. I look forward to continuing to read her books. There were a couple editing mistakes but an attentive reader will know what was intended.
  • Amy
    Great storyAnother great thrilling story!Edgar was one evil man, doppelganger, and spirit.There were twists and turns all through this book, I loved it!If you have read any of Darcy's books, the ending is sure to surprise you!
  • Andrea
    This was a FANTASTIC BOOK!!!!!!!!! I have yet to read a book of this genre that held my attention so thoroughly the entire book! This would make for such a smash movie. I highly recommend this book and am eager to read more of this author, Darcy Coates work!
  • Nicky
    BrilliantDefinitely one of Darcy Coates' best. Eight strangers thrown together, an old house with a dark history, mystery, hauntings and a whodunit. A sort of supernatural Agatha Christie. I loved it.
  • Babe9622
    Absolutely amazing!!This is definitely Darcey Coates’ best book . I was hooked from the beginning. It’s full of twists that keep you guessing. Absolutely loved this book and would recommend it to anyone who has a love for the paranormal.
  • Beth
    Lots of twists in this oneGreat book! The story and characters really draw you in and along for a very strange project at a well known haunted house. I recommend checking this author out. Reminiscent of Heather Graham's Krewe of Hunters series. Well done!
  • Fatimah Gunn
    Great Read......As Usual I really enjoyed this book. It had a lot of twists and turns. Very action filled and enough spookiness to keep you in suspense. Loved the ending as well. Can't wait for the next one from this author!
  • Liz Deakin
    I love Darcy's books, she knows how to write a good atmospheric horror. The Carrow Haunt doesn't disappoint, I was glued to this story and couldn't put it down, (although I did get a bit spooked reading late at night and I wasn't even alone)! I thoroughly recommend, it's so good.
  • Conny
    I loved this book.This was the best book from Darcy Coates so far.It would be a great movie.Onces started reading I could not stop, and the book stays in your head the whole time.Just awsome, thanks Darcy for such a great read.
  • Star Charmer
    Like Rose Red, but better and without the blatant pandering. Definitely a little predictable at times, but honestly it's a really fun romp through a haunted house. If you like a good ghost story, this is an excellent way to kill a few hours.
  • Peggy L. Brown
    IntenseI chose 5 stars for several reasons: interesting characters, intense storyline, and exciting climax. I was sad about the loss of a favorite character. I won't say more than that or it would spoil the surprise! I look forward to Darcy's next book.
  • Yvonne
    Awesome bookIt's a pretty intense book. You have troubles putting it down because so much crazy stuff is happening! (Spoiler alert) I just wonder if they ever found Taj body?
  • Tricia Thompson
    Mush's thoughts This was a great book with twists and turns that kept you on the edge. Right up to the end I was never sure of who or what was causing it all.
  • Cathy Gudger
    Loved it!!
