The House on Linden Way.
The book is a ghost story with elements of horror and Gothic suspense. A perfect fall season read! Here's a bit more about The House on Linden Way:
While passing through her hometown a decade after she left, Amber Blake impulsively revisits her old house on Linden Way. She only means to stay a moment, to show her three-year-old daughter Bee the place where she grew up. But when the kindly new owners invite them inside, Amber cannot resist.
Soon Bee is missing, the owners have disappeared, and Amber finds herself in a houseful of ghosts. Time takes on new meaning as she loses herself in living memories and a past that does not wish to be forgotten.
As Amber fights the powerful lure of a childhood she’d long left behind, her tenuous hold on the real world slips further from her grasp. Is it merely nostalgia she’s battling, or something far more menacing? Who haunts the house on Linden Way, and where are they hiding her child?

---- 5 Star Review by Crystal Otto
The House on Linden Way is one of those unexpected books with countless plot twists! After reading it the first time I need to let you know I'm going to read it again - like immediately! It's one of those books that is written so well that once you get to the end you find yourself wanting more - and when you re-read some of the chapters, you find little hidden tidbits you missed the first time!
The House on Linden Way had me leaving dishes in the sink and clothes wrinkling in the dryer - I didn't care about anything except Amber's journey! Naranjo's writing is fantastic and her character development is top notch! This is a fabulous book to add to your collection and you'll also want to purchase a few extra copies to gift to your friends. My 15 year old is currently reading my copy and loving it as much (if not more) than I did!
Most definitely a 5 star read! Very well done Elizabeth Maria Naranjo! I love The House on Linden Way!
