Bliss House draws you in and refuses to let you go. Eerie,
seductive, and suspenseful. Read it.--Meg Gardiner, Edgar
Bliss House is a rare accomplishment: a novel that works as a mystery, a ghost story, and a touching family drama. Laura Benedict has written a thoughtful and compelling book.--Jeff Abbott, New York Times bestselling author of INSIDE MAN
Bliss House, with its blood-stained history of madness and murder, would scare off most potential buyers in Benedict's creepy, solidly crafted supernatural suspense novel.
