What a gripping read! Wow – I wasn’t 100% sure I was going to like this book but having read some of the author previous work I was interested in more so thought I would give it a go and I am so glad I did. I was completely hooked from beginning to end – it had me guessing, it had me on the edge of my seat and more. The characters were so well thought out they really were fantastic to read about. The descriptive language really brought the book to life. I loved the different twists and turns – it definitely kept me guessing the whole way through.
It’s hard not to give away spoilers in this one, I really cannot recommend it enough and urge everyone to one click today!

Oh my gosh. My head is still reeling from this book. The author just had a way of putting you straight in the story. The twists and mysteries will make you keep turning the pages. I was not able to put it down till I was finished. It had me think I had it all figured out when I had no idea. It has you right alongside Molly trying to figure out what is happening around her. The depth in the characters outside Molly was written so well. Plus, the spookiness was just right to have you sucked in. I LOVED this story!! I can not wait to read more from this author!!

House in the Woods by Jessica Aiken-Hall. I LOVED this book and I LOVE Jessica Aiken-Hall. Psychological Thrillers are my favorite so I had high hopes going into this one and it exceeded my expectations! This is the story of Molly Jackson who has come home to Pine Grove, Vermont for the summer. She has just finished her first year in college and she has been asked to take care of her mom who has recently been told she has dementia. Shortly after getting there her mom starts disappearing and Molly has to call in reinforcements to find her. Her dad brings her back home one time but he’s very secretive about where she was. Molly finds this very odd. Molly also finds a flyer of a missing woman, Lucy, from several years back and the lady has a huge resemblance to Molly. Molly feels a strong attraction to Lucy and so she starts trying to find out what happened to her. This book will keep you guessing until the very last page! Its soooo good!

I loved this book! I could not put it down. I kept reading last night until I could not keep my eyes open and had to finish it this morning. It has so many twists and keeps you guessing throughout the whole book. Molly is an excellent lead character, with a great personality. The author has written all the characters very well and made them very believable and relatable. I would recommend House in the Woods to anyone who loves mysteries. It’s a wonderful mystery novel and I will definitely check out more by this author!

I could barely put this book down because I was so involved in the characters, the mystery and the house in the woods. I am so thankful to have picked up this book because the ending is a twist I did expect.

I read a lot of psychological thrillers, so a good chunk of the time I have an idea of what the bug twist will be or how a novel will end. That was absolutely not the case with this book. The author did a fantastic job of building an intricate plot where all the peices eventually came together and nothing was overlooked. This was my first book by this author, and I would definitely read more from her!

This is an author I have enjoyed from the first book I have picked up of hers. They are well written stories that the author’s use of attention to details make the stories pop. I am pulled into the story right from the first word. This book is no different. The characters gave the story a realistic feel and they are connectable. They really did make the story for me as well as fun and entertaining to read. This is a story about Molly and what she finds when she is searching for her missing mother. What she finds is not what is expected and how the mysterious missing woman is closer to her brother than she realizes. This is full of action and twists and turns that kept me turning pages to the end. I loved this book and highly recommend it.

Molly Jackson is home in Pine Grove, Vermont for the summer after her first year in college. She has been asked home to take care of her mother who has been diagnosed with dementia. Molly’s mom disappears again, so Molly calls her brother Marc. Marc decides to come back home but is traveling from Virginia. Their dad finds their mom and brings her back home, but he won’t share where he finds her.

While this is mysterious in itself, Molly finds a flyer outside the stadium at her old high school while she was out looking for her mom. The odd thing is she feels like she is looking in the mirror as she stares at the flyer of a missing girl, Lucy, who went missing 20 years earlier.

Molly feels an odd attraction to Lucy. Plus things aren’t always what they seem at home. Her mom acts lucid sometimes when she’s talking to Molly. There are strange things happening in Pine Grove. Can she solve this mystery before things get too dangerous?

What a great mystery! Until the truth is revealed, you will have no idea what is really going on.

Molly Jackson, sheltered college student home for the summer, is faced with the harsh reality of her mom’s dementia. Tasked with making sure her mom is safe and stays at home, Molly panics when her mom disappears. Having nowhere else to turn, Molly reaches out to her older brother, Marc. When Marc returns to his small hometown, things quickly unravel as Molly becomes involved in the search for a local woman who went missing 20 years prior.

This story is so good. Full of unexpected twists and turns to the last page. House in the Woods leaves the reader guessing, even when it seems like everything has been wrapped up neatly. Molly is 19 but has led such a sheltered life her innocence and naivety really came through in her character. There were moments where the story was heartbreaking as everything Molly and Marc knew of their life has fallen apart. Great 5 star read!

Oh my goodness, this book was amazing. I was captivated from start to finish. I wish I could give more than 5 stars because it deserves more. Jessica Aiken Hall is a literary wizard.

I simply cannot spoil this book because it was so good and was so fun to try to figure the mystery out, but I will make a few comments on it!

The characters were just amazing. They had so much depth and persona to them that I loved or hated them depending who they were! Her scene details were immaculate and gave me literal goosebumps. Reading it felt so realistic, it was like I was there, spooky! Without giving too much away, the way she weaved this intricate and amazing plot is simply astounding. It had me invested in this mystery and reading every and any opportunity I could. Just when I thought I had things figured out, BAM, another bombshell was dropped; but it all fit in perfectly. It wrapped up so nicely with a perfect and just conclusion.

10/10 will be stalking this author to fangirl over her work.
