Whisper by Michael Bray [4 stars]

From the Description:

It was supposed to be a fresh start. A place for Steve & Melody Samson to begin their new life together away from the noise and crime of the city. However, their new home – an idyllic cottage nestled deep within the dense solitude of Oakwell forest-has a disturbing history, hidden for generations by the locals. There is evil in Hope House, and the cursed forest that surrounds it. Evil that has awakened after lying dormant for decades, and has terrifying plans for the young couple.

Once you hear the whispers, it may already be too late.

While the ghostly happenings in Whisper have a slow start the creepy atmosphere is apparent right away. Throw in a knife wielding, rapey psychopath, and woods that are alive with menace and you've got yourself a spooky little book that's perfect for the season! Well written work that will have me checking out more of Michael Bray's work in the future. A solid 4 stars.
