Elmwood is a creepy and atmospheric novel, focusing on the story of a man plagued by nightmares. Aidan has been having the same nightmare every single night, ever since finding a body on the side of the road. In an attempt to give her husband a change of scenery, Laura suggests the two take a long vacation in Elmwood.
Of course once they get there, the place is anything but idyllic and their rented Lake House is becoming just as creepy as the townsfolk.
I enjoyed reading this fast-paced story by N.T. Morris. He is able to set the stage to scare his readers, and leave them holding their breath in fear of what’s around the next corner.
The book also contained quite a few twists and turns, some of which were a bit too predictable for me. That isn’t to say that they weren’t good, I was just able to figure it out fairly quickly.
In the end I found Elmwood an entertaining horror reader, but I wanted just a bit more.
Thanks to the author for the review copy.
