    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...

    If you love a good haunted house, seances and intrigue than The Carrow Haunt will keep you reading through the night. This is definitely one of Darcy Coates best books and will keep you guessing all the way to the end.

    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...

    4.25 starsNow this was awesome!Remy organizes tours in the haunted Carrow House. The house has a very rich history, with a serial killer who buried his victims in the basement, and several other mysterious deaths in the last 100 years.When she gets approached by Mark Sulligent, who asks if she’s interested in taking part in an experiment in Carrow House, she doesn’t know what to think. Mark wants to have a group of 7 or 8 people staying at Ca...

    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...

    I used to love this building. Now, I would gladly burn it to the ground. Not as great as I wanted it to be, but still a lot of fun and spooks. Having read Hunted back in October, my expectations were high going into this. I wanted more of the interesting characters, exciting readable plot, and of course, the spooks.And I got some of that? The Carrow Haunt did have some fun. It's a bit like a locked house mystery? Is there a trope for when people ...

    "How can you kill the unkillable?"I've been meaning to read a book by Darcy Coates for forever, and I finally picked up The Carrow Haunt, which is a new release from this year. I ended up really enjoying it! I can always be drawn in with a haunted house story. The Carrow Haunt has such a fun set-up - it's kind of similar to Hell House, except it doesn't suck (sorry, not sorry). The main character is a tour guide at a haunted inn, and she ends up ...

    Edit: This was a dynamic haunting story. I loved it. You had your medium ( not fake), the tour guide, the skeptic, the tag-a-long, and your rich girl owner who is desperately a want-to-be medium (to the actual medium’s chagrin) the horribly gory history of the House, and an actually truly very haunted house right on the sea. Everyone has their reason to be there and they are all mixed in with your folks interested in ghosts and others intereste...

    This book started out as a Haunting of Hill House style ghost story and quickly devolved into goofy (bad) cheesiness. Also, I can’t be the only one who noticed that author is obsessed with having her characters lick their lips. Like so often it could be a drinking game. “Remy licked her lips and started up the stairs...” “Remy licked her lips and replied that she would go check on the others...” “Mark licked his lips and said he would...

    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...

    Mystery, Thriller & Suspense > Suspense > Ghosts “. . . Two weeks in the state’s most haunted house. This is either going to be a great decision or the worst experience of my life.” I don’t normally read books that fall into the horror genre because they are often too disturbing, malicious and make me feel uncomfortable. Darcy Coates has something in her books that makes me enjoy them, so I can easily make an exception to her books. You c...

    I suppose I should start by owning that Darcy Coates is one of my favorite horror writers and that I have a special love for haunted house yarns. Put those two together and I was probably predisposed to love this book from the beginning. The things about Ms Coates’ tales is that they really aren’t ground breaking. Like, not at all. She tells haunted house stories that are very classical and formulaic. Whether it’s the person inheriting a ho...

    3.5I thought I would shake it up a bit for the beginning of 2019 and read a book I normally would not read. I liked it for the better half, but it escaped me in the later, but I'll cover this in my conclusion. Darcy Coates has written a good book. The story beats are a little cliche, but overall it passed my expectations, the cover is brilliant. The haunted house sub genre is a tough story model to break, it has been done to death so Coates knew ...

    4 stars!* No one is up here. No one living, at least. The Carrow Haunt is a fast-moving and creepy novel with wonderful characters and a fascinating setting. The plot is engrossing and rather complex, with many shocking twists and scary reveals along the way. There is some very light romance, but the overall atmosphere of the novel is eerie and filled with terrible secrets.Darcy Coates delivers an engaging story that offers an unique take on th...

    all reviews in one place: night mode reading ; skaitom nakties rezimuAbout: Carrow Haunt House stood ominous, open to tourists in search for spirits, ghosts, thrills, and terror. Many have been slain here by one of the previous owners, and due to ritualistic nature of their deaths – the dead don’t seem to be able to move on. Remy leads tourist groups in and out, shepherding, warning, telling stories. And no one ever fails to feel, see, or h...

    It would seem that Darcy Coates and I share a mutual love of happy endings, even against all odds. After reading Craven Manor, I was very much looking forward to this! Significantly spookier and truly a tale of horrors, The Carrow Haunt did succeed in raising my hairs and prickling my flesh as I read it in my bed all night. It’s currently 5AM. Whoops!I admit that my ratings are usually based purely on feelings, rather than actual criticisms of ...

    A very fun haunted house story. Comparing this to classic haunted house novels such as "Hell House" and "The Haunting of Hill House" is unavoidable and honestly there is little in The Carrow Haunt that is unique. However, there is a locked room murder mystery aspect to the plot which makes the story stand out on its own. The writing itself is extremely enjoyable. The suspense and pacing kept me turning pages deep into the night.Overall, this was ...

    If you're are somebody who hasn't read Hill House and other haunted house tales, and if you are somebody that likes horror films, you'd think this book is good enough.It starts with what I expected to be a modern rendering of Hill House. And it was great until it wasn't.As we reach the end, it suffers from the same ex Machina that most horror films do. It was entertaining to an extent.

    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...

    I'm really glad I stumbled upon Darcy Coates's books. Read 2 books for her within a week and they definitely won't be the last. She certainly knows how to spin a scary tale. It creeped me. This book more so than Cravan House- the other book I read. It's really scary, keeps you enthralled and has just the right amount of tug and release to keep you hooked. I love her style. Not overly verbose, yet vivid and lively. I recommend! If you are in the m...

    This book is OMG amazing! I loved it so much it is one of my 2018 Favorites. The story is so unique and extremely haunting. The book follows Remy who is a tour guide for the infamously haunted Carrow House. During a tour, she meets Mark who wants to rent the house out for 2 weeks to bring a team of paranormal investigators in to study the spirits within. I loved all the characters in the book even with their differing personalities. That is what ...

    This is a fun novel about a haunted building. You can't take it too seriously, though. And I mean that as a compliment. The ghosts are inventive and the plot twists are insane the last few chapters, but work perfectly within the world Coates has put her characters into. This ghost story is one quarter hauntings, one quarter serial killer thriller, one quarter murder mystery theater, and one quarter love story. It has it all.

    I liked this a lot! It was scarier than I thought it would be from the start. Just the first chapter had me turning on every light in my house.The perfect Halloween read, and time will tell if I remember this as a favorite, but I would not be surprised if that happened.What is sure is that I have found a new recurring author.

    So I may be going down a Darcy Coates wormhole lately but I am totally fine with that. This was another haunting story with great characters and a plot that kept me reading and a bit of romance thrown in for good measured. This one has some seriously spooky moments. One of my fave haunting books by her so far-very atmospheric.
