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“The plot to this book was one of my favorites so far. I loved that as you read you were trying to decide if this was mental illness or actual possession or both. I did feel it got a little… redundant or excessive when it came to the anecdotes and thoughts in between, but all in all this was a really good read. And don’t let the title fool you into thinking this is a lighthearted book, there were times my jaw flew open & I cringed thinking “omgomgomg””

Expressionless Face“This book has to be one of the WORST books I've ever read.. I tried SO hard to finish it and I just couldn't. I kept saying maybe I just need to get further into it and it'll get better but then I found myself over halfway through and it just kept getting worse and worse. I wanted to like it because I really liked Grady Hendrix "My Best Friend's Exorcism" but this was garbage. I really can't even think of one good thing to say about the whole book until I finally reached the point where I said I can't do it and put it back on the shelf.”
Bad writingUnengaging charactersUnsatisfying plot
Anxious Face with sweat“i really liked this book! it had me unsettled and paranoid which is good in a horror. but then again…you can’t go wrong with haunted puppets lol. i thought the book was fast paced and very descriptive, maybe a little too descriptive because i could feel some scenes and it freaked me out😂 and it was just creepy as hell. i will say Louise and Mark’s characters were a little unrealistic. just with how with they think. and the character development and the development in their relationship was very late and sudden. and i didn’t like how the author would do an information dump sometimes. it just unbalances everything in the book. and i feel like the author could have written some parts in the book differently. usually because of these things i would never rate a book five stars but this is for a book club. i’m just trying to enjoy my time and omg i did. i can be a critical and analytical writer/reader with my personal reads lol. the story was great. the twists and turns, the drama, the meaning of family. it was so so good. im very interested in reading more books by this author.”
