    One hundred and twenty year old Nightingale House was once the summer home of a wealthy couple Now it's the new home of widower Daniel Price and his eight year old daughter Caitlyn Daniel and his wife Nicole had bought this house before the family was in a car accident that killed Nicole eight months earlier It is only now that Daniel and Caitlyn have moved into the house Both of them are still grieving although Daniel seems to be handling Nicole's death worse than Caitlyn Caitlyn has always had a vivid imagination which made some of her stories about imaginary friends or stories about other people verge on lies She's been taught to tone things down that there is a limit to how far she should take her story telling When Caitlyn claims she is talking to a little girl who lives in the house and when Caitlyn attributes some things to the little girl Daniel is willing to let it go at first because he knows Caitlyn is still mourning her mother and that they have just made this big move But Daniel is hearing things too voices water dripping thumps and he's also having vivid disturbing dreams that seem to mesh with real life For all the things that take place in this house in the present and in the 1900 timeline the story has a very benign uality to it The violence is not graphic the horrors almost have a nightmarish distancing uality to them Daniel's overwhelming sense of grief and his extreme sleep deprivation due to nightmares and other things seem to overshadow everything in the story This is not a bad thing it just gave the story a different feeling than I had expected when I started reading this book Thank you to H Digital and NetGalley for this ARC

    I enjoyed this story BUTI did not find it to be very atmospheric or scaryDespite the THUMPS the DRIPS the WHISPERS of “I can’t sleep” When I read the premise I was concerned that it might be too similar to “The Whisper Man” by Alex North Both feature a grieving widower moving into a “haunted house” with their young child after the untimely death of their wife But it wasn’t This tale reveals the secrets of Nightingale House through a journal written in the 1900’s as the ghosts from the past and present intersect The strength of this story is a husband’s grief a father’s fear and a glimpse into the writing process of an author I enjoyed the characters although sometimes Caitlyn seemed older than 8 years old to me Though I expected “chills” I wouldn’t hesitate to pick up the author’s next book Thank You to NetGalley and HarperCollins for providing a digital ARC in exchange for a candid review Available Now

    NIGHTINGALE HOUSE has all of the ingredients for a classic horror story but ends up coming out a bit undercooked Daniel and his young daughter Caitlyn move into Nightingale House a place he bought with his wife before she died in a tragic car accident He’s optimistic that this will be a new start for him and Caitlyn and that he can get started on writing his second novel After hearing strange dripping noises amongst other things and after Caitlyn starts talking and about her friend that only she can see Daniel starts to research the house’s history and finds that it might turn out to be his biggest nightmare Sounds solid right? This is not a bad book I found it engaging enough and it’s a uick read I think my issue is the writing Except for a couple scenes this feels like a children’s ghost story or maybe YA It’s not scary atmospheric or very chilling at all The dialogue is so cheesy that I felt like I was reading a script for an ABC Family movie There’s nothing wrong with that but it’s not my cup of cappuccino The first 5 chapters or so has a lot of moments where Daniel is thinking internally and his thoughts keep being cut off mid word by some sort of interruption The repetitiveness of the interruptions were distracting and I’m glad the author finally stopped it The best parts of the book are the chapters that read as a diary from 1900 I found those scenes interesting and was eager to know how it would tie to the present Seeing as how I received an ARC for another book by author Steve Frech I will be giving him another try at some point Many people enjoyed this than I did so I may very well just be the wrong reader To me it was just a bit bland when I was expecting a lot 25 stars rounded up Thank you to H Digital Steve Frech and NetGalley for an ARC in exchange for an honest review

    Nightingale House by Steve Frech is a light horror story about a recently widowed writer Daniel Price and his young daughter Caitlyn who move to a beautiful historic house by a lake in the hope of starting a new life Soon after their arrival strange and terrifying things start happening to Daniel It's obvious to him that something sinister is going on at Nightingale House but what?This was a thoroughly creepy and addictive read It is told from the perspectives of Daniel and a young woman named Rebecca with Daniel's story being in the present and Rebecca's story set in 1900 The writing flowed effortlessly and I thought the author did a fantastic job of creating a foreboding atmosphere and keeping the reader on their toes I loved the characters of Daniel and Caitlyn and their fatherdaughter relationship was very heartwarming This story left me feeling unsettled at times but I wouldn't necessarily say that it was scary More than anything it's a story about coping with grief and trying to heal after a loved one's death Overall I thought Nightingale House was a classic ghost story and I highly recommend it I will definitely be reading by Steve FrechThank you to NetGalley and H Digital for the opportunity to read this ARC in exchange for an honest review

    This is such an excellent haunted houseghost story It follows the usual rules conventions and tropes of the haunted house story but is just executed in such a lovely way and has some really uniue details It’s a very vivid and deeply felt story about a father dealing with guilt over the loss of his wife I am somewhat particular about my ghost stories the Haunting of Hill House and its ilk are my favorites and this author lives up to my high expectations by honoring the traditional ghost story in a modern setting with writing and atmosphere worthy of the masters I enjoyed every minute of this page turner which was beautiful engrossing and scary Frech just nailed the emotional and allegorical aspects of the ghost story which to me are really just as important as the scares which he also nailed Thankful to NetGalley for turning me onto Steve Frech as I will definitely read his other books 45 stars rounded up for this enjoyable readThanks to H Digital NetGalley and Steve Frech for those ghost story perfect for uarantine in exchange for my honest review

    Nightingale House is supernatural horrorthriller writer Steve Frech’s latest novel and after reading and enjoying his debut Dark Hollows all the way back in December 2019 and realising just how few and far between decent non cliched books in this genre are I decided to take the plunge again Daniel and Nicole Price whilst searching for a new home to make a fresh start and move on from past struggles fall head over heels in love with the beautifully designed Nightingale House on the shores of Willow Lake Kingsbrook Maine; they see it as the perfect place off the beaten track to raise their eight year old daughter Caitlyn But their nightmare is just beginning and before they get the chance to move into the home of their dreams Nicole is killed in an horrendous car accident leaving Daniel to raise Caitlyn alone When they start noticing strange and chilling events happening in the house they become terrified of what exactly is present within their four wallsThis is a good old fashioned ghost story with an increasing sense that the protagonist is rapidly losing his grip on reality and young Caitlyn now has an unhealthy obsession with an imaginary friend as she attempts to deal with the emotions surrounding her mother's tragic death It certainly makes a welcome and refreshing change to my usual thriller fodder and the way it was constructed meant there were many terrifying moments and you could feel Daniel’s pain and anguish coming through on every page It's a fun relatively light horror story with an emotional undertone to it and Daniel’s hobby turned obsession in finding out what ”curse” the house holds creates a deep sense of mystery which gripped me and kept me reading A great escapist read for these challenging times Highly recommended Many thanks to H Digital for an ARC
