I am so very happy and honored to share with you all today the cover and synopsis of The Bargaining by Carly Anne West!
The Bargaining by Carly Anne West
The fact that neither of her parents wants to deal with her is nothing new to Penny. She’s used to being discussed like a problem, a problem her mother has finally passed on to her father. What she hasn’t gotten used to is her stepmother…especially when she finds out that she’ll have to spend the summer with April in the remote woods of Washington to restore a broken-down old house.
Set deep in a dense forest, the old Carver House is filled with abandoned antique furniture, rich architectural details, and its own chilling past. The only respite Penny can find away from April’s renovations is in Miller, the young guy who runs the local general store. He’s her only chance at a normal, and enjoyable, summer.
But Miller has his own connection to the Carver House, and it’s one that goes beyond the mysterious tapping Penny hears at her window, the handprints she finds smudging the glass panes, and the visions of children who beckon Penny to follow them into the dark woods. Miller’s past just might threaten to become the terror of Penny’s future….
I love all the pinks and reds for the color scheme in the cover. The book sounds creepy and mysterious and I’m in love with that last line in the synopsis – “Miller’s past just might threaten to become the terror of Penny’s future….” EEP! Can’t wait! I greatly enjoyed her last book The Murmurings, so another creeptastic book by this author is definitely high on my list of books to look forward to!
