Beth recommends: "The House Next Door" by Anne Rivers Siddons

‘Tis the season of Spooky. If you like Southern gothic horror stories, may I suggest The House Next Door by Anne Rivers Siddons. If you know this author and her books, you might be surprised to learn that she produced a marvelous haunted house story back in the 1970’s – one which Stephen King praised and critiqued in his anecdotal book about the horror genre: Stephen King’s Danse Macabre. Colquitt and Walter Kennedy live next door to the last vacant lot in their beautiful upscale neighborhood. Architect Kim Dougherty builds an amazing house on that lot -- a house that looks almost alive. A very pleasant couple moves into the house next door…but evil has moved in first. Recommended for adults.
