    {Review} A House in the Country by Matt Shaw

    on June 23, 2014 Genres: Horror, Thriller Pages: 79 Format: eBook Buy on Amazon Goodreads What happened?! It was all there just waiting to be used. The set-up, the characters, the backstory.

Don’t get me wrong, there were moments where I could imagine the darkness,…
