Book Review: The House of Last Resort
Book: The House of Last Resort
Author: Christopher Golden
Thank you to NetGalley and St. Martin’s Press for an eARC in exchange for my honest review.
The hilltop town of Italy called Becchina was once a gorgeous busy town. Over the years many residents moved to be closer to the coast of Italy. This leaves Becchina and many other towns in Italy to be abandoned.
The mayor of Becchina has decided to sell houses in the town for one Euro. The catch was they had to live there for five years.
Over in America Kate and Tommy were in desperate need of a change. Becchina is the town that Tommy’s family comes from. He had visited once when he was younger and loved it. Kate stumbles upon this promotion and thinks it is a great opportunity for them especially since both of them work remotely.
They pack up their things and head to Italy. Once they are there, they realize people in town have been giving them some strange looks which they find odd. They then realize that it was due to what had happened in the house before it was abandoned. They start looking into it after some strange things start happening in the house, from doors slamming to finding rooms in the house that they had no idea existed. I was hoping to learn more about the history of the house, which we didn’t get.
This book had some creepy elements to it. The ending did leave you with more questions than you would like.
Final Score: 3.5/5
