Publisher Description

AN INSTANT NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER

"Wildly entertaining."-The New York Times

"Ingenious."-The Washington Post

New York Times bestselling author Grady Hendrix takes on the haunted house in a thrilling new novel that explores the way your past—and your family—can haunt you like nothing else.
 
When Louise finds out her parents have died, she dreads going home. She doesn’t want to leave her daughter with her ex and fly to Charleston. She doesn’t want to deal with her family home, stuffed to the rafters with the remnants of her father’s academic career and her mother’s lifelong obsession with puppets and dolls. She doesn’t want to learn how to live without the two people who knew and loved her best in the world.
 
Most of all, she doesn’t want to deal with her brother, Mark, who never left their hometown, gets fired from one job after another, and resents her success. Unfortunately, she’ll need his help to get the house ready for sale because it’ll take more than some new paint on the walls and clearing out a lifetime of memories to get this place on the market.
 
But some houses don’t want to be sold, and their home has other plans for both of them…
 
Like his novels The Southern Book Club’s Guide to Slaying Vampires and The Final Girl Support Group, How to Sell a Haunted House is classic Hendrix: equal parts heartfelt and terrifying—a gripping new read from “the horror master” (USA Today).

Surprised Face with Open Mouth“Had a lot of fun reading it! However, the “fighting” scenes got a bit too much/long for me personally, and it was hard imagining what was going on sometimes. The most frustrating thing about the book was how the adults were often very incapable of anything (you cant tell me 2 grown adults cant hold down a 5-year-old child). However it was a very interesting story and is definitely a nice read.”

Red Angry Face“I had such great expectations fir this book. I was all set for a good ghost story. Instead I got awful characters and evil puppets. Could have been a bit shorter. At least there was a happy ending???”
Multi-layered characters
Expressionless Face“I blame myself for being too stubborn to DNF this book. My thoughts: it could have been half the length, I could not relate to any of the characters and they continued to be horrible to each other to the end so I didn't see any real development, I felt at certain points like I was being tricked into reading a paper about the intricacies of puppetry, and at other points like I was walking into some kind of religious indoctrination. This book definitely just was not for me.”
