Description
							Amidst lush farmland and orchards in Old Gate, Virginia, stands the magnificent Bliss House. Built in 1878, Bliss House is impressive, historic, and inexplicably mysterious. Rainey Bliss Adams desperately needed a new start when she and her daughter Ariel relocated from St. Louis to Old Gate and settled into the house where the Bliss family had lived for over a century. Rainey’s husband had been killed in a freak explosion that left her 14 year-old daughter Ariel scarred and disfigured. At the grand housewarming party, Bliss House begins to reveal itself again. Ariel sees haunting visions: the ghost of her father, and the ghost of a woman being pushed to her death off of an upper floor balcony, beneath an exquisite dome of painted stars. And then there is a death the night of the party...
Reviews

"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. Lines between fact and fantastic, past and present, increasingly blur...the final revelation hits horrifyingly close to home for Rainey." - Publishers Weekly

"Reader be warned! Laura Benedict has written a novel that may well keep you awake at night, and not only because Bliss House is flat-out scary. Benedict knows how to craft a story in such a way that, once begun, it is nearly impossible to put down." - Ron Rash, author of Serena

"In Bliss House, Laura Benedict has written just the type of novel I love to read: A ghost story replete with good and evil, the past and present colliding, and compelling characters to root for. It is a story that grabs you by the throat and heart and won't let go." - Erica Spindler, New York Times bestselling author of Justice For Sara

"I've longed for this book - an intelligent haunted house story with twists and turns. Laura Benedict is an author to watch. Bliss House edges Benedict firmly into Shirley Jackson territory with this rich, evocative novel about the power of blood to corrupt." - Carolyn Hains, Harper Lee Award-winner, author of The Darkling

"Benedict's writing is lush and seamless, catapulting the reader into the gripping story from the opening line and holding them, taut and breathless, to the very last. You do not want to miss Bliss House. It's a compulsively readable tour de force from a wonderful writer." - J. T. Ellison, New York Times bestselling author of When Shadows Fall

"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
