The Bell House by Lori Titus
After a family tragedy, Jenna Bell McBride returns to her Father’s ancestral home, a bitter half sister, and painful memories that have remained secret. What force remains tied to their family land, waiting to draw in more victims?
Some secrets can stay buried for an eternity, however sometimes in the deepest darkest crevice of your minds you know they are just waiting for the best moment to exact their revenge. The secrets plaguing the Bell House are numerous and just as scandalous. The story starts off with the brothers Travis and Jeremiah, the source of their disdain for one another is not disclosed but the tensions and dislike ooze from the pages. From there the sins of the father, carry over to the daughters. Generational curses are just as real today as they were with the father. Following the lives of the half sisters, Diane and Jenna Bell becomes a lesson on hatred and the past. Diane is consumed with hatred that exudes from her skin, she is one nasty lady. She must be a gemini because one moment she sweet as pie, the next a bitter lemon. Her bitterness feeds the darkness. Jenna is the exact opposite, she’s confident yet begins to feel that death follows her. The recent loss of her mother and sudden demise of her husband brings her back home to her roots, in more ways than she realizes.
The story transitions very well from past to present and back once more. The author spins a tale of generational curses, seamlessly exposing the depths darkness runs in the family’s past. I thoroughly enjoyed the storyline and plot. I would have loved to see how Travis’s secret unravelled. However I disliked the formatting, this could be a slight error on behalf of kindle but the first letter of each new chapter is blacked out. The haunting tale, receives 5 stars yet the format and cover only 3.
