Wow!… Kept me up into the night. I couldn't put this book down!… Highly recommend!’ NetGalley reviewer, 5 stars

For fans of Stephen King, Mark Edwards and The Haunting of Hill House comes a dark tale of a mysterious house haunted by tragedy.

The Nightingale House is a new beginning for widower Daniel Price and his young daughter Caitlyn. After months of grief, this will be the place where they start their life as a family of two.

But something is wrong—Daniel can’t settle. There’s an odd, cold feeling in the master bedroom, and a mysterious dripping noise that seems to move from room to room. Whispers of I can’t sleep echo through the corridors, long into the night.

And then Daniel uncovers the chilling story of the family who lived in the house years before, of betrayal, tragedy, and murder. Could the Nightingale House be not the home Daniel dreamed of for his daughter—but a place that will bring their worst nightmares to life?

Steve French has done it again! This book is amazing. I loved Steve's first book "Dark Hollows" so much and didn't know if Nightingale House could live up to my expectations and it did so and more. I think I loved Nightingale House a little bit more than Dark Hollows, only because I love a good ghost story. This book tells the story of a newly widowed author Daniel Price and his daughter Caitlyn moving to a new home, that was his wife's dream house. Little do they know the horror that is waiting for them behind those doors. I loved how he handled grief almost like a haunting, because it can really feel like that in real life. In the book you are also reading a journal from the early 1900's by a young girl, Rebecca that tells the story of what happened in the Nightingale House that created the negative energy. I appreciated how this was a "scary" story but not frightening, there were moments when my heart was racing waiting to see what would happen next but nothing that left me too scared to keep reading or lose sleep. Great job, Steve!

WOW!! The ending to this book was sooo good, I never wanted it to end! I love books that involve ghosts so I’m super glad that I was able to get my hands on this one. I loved the father/daughter relationship between Daniel and Caitlyn so much & even felt a little jealous at times. This book was way spooky, to the point where I couldn’t even read it at night sometimes😂

This book is perfect for anybody who liked The Whisper Man, The Haunting of Hill House, or anything involving ghosts in general.
