Inheritance often comes with strings attached, but rarely are they as tangled as those hanging over High Hearth.
When Eudora Fellowes learns she’s the sole heir of her estranged great-aunt’s seaside manor, she believes it will be the peaceful escape she’s longed for. What awaits, however, is a dark legacy shrouded in half a century of secrets, and it doesn’t take long before Eudora realizes she’s not the only one to call High Hearth home.

S.H. Cooper is a Florida based, multi-genre author with a focus on horror and fantasy. Her work has been published by Sleepless Sanctuary Publishing, Cemetery Gates Media, and Brigids Gate Press. In addition to short story collections and novels, she is also the writer for the horror comedy podcast, Calling Darkness. When she’s not writing, she’s thinking about writing, talking about writing, or sleeping (wherein she dreams about writing). She is kept up and running through the tireless efforts of her extremely supportive family and coffee.
My thoughts: the premise of this book really intrigued me, a house full of ghosts, a woman with two huge dogs (called Cerberus and Black Shuck – both hellhounds of a sort) and the battle to rid the house of its wrathful spirits.
Eudora is a bit strange herself, and doesn’t actually seem hugely perturbed by the unquiet dead lingering in the house or the fact her great-aunt is deeply unpleasant in death as she was in life.
But rather than doing what I’d do, burn the damn place down, salt the earth and never step foot there again, Eudora is determined to take control and stop the terrifying visions and poltergeists of the house from destroying her.
A strange, twisted tale of ghosts, the terrible things people can do and one peculiar woman with her two hounds.
