I loved writing this story, and hope to write more with the same kind of supernatural entity, if readers like this work!

Why are some of us compelled to enter the dark, unknown recesses of an abandoned home? How much do we ever really know about the private lives of our parents -- their lives before children, and outside of family? And how far would a demon go to resurrect the woman he loves?

Tara Fox Hall once again weaves a narrative that unfolds carefully and with much detail. Reading The Chalet reminded me of Stephen King's The Shining -- every turn down the winding corridors of a grandiose, but seemingly lifel

I found myself drawn into The Chalet from the very first pages. I have a passion for old houses with histories and mysteries and Madeleine's Chalet had plenty of both to satisfy my appetite throughout. We know it's going to be a sinister place right from the start because of the narrator's life-long fear of it. Many people who have entered its doors simply disappear without trace, but what is its mystery? Well if I were to tell you, it would spoil your experience of reading this gripping and ent ...more

The Chalet is remarkable in that the time span of the story covered in only twenty-seven pages is immense. If there is a downside to this, it is that keeping the timeline and relevant characters straight was a little confusing at the beginning. But do not let that small inconvenience put you off from reading this story.

There are murders a-plenty, and disappearances; lots of those. Hatred and love fuel the tale as do betrayals. And yet

One Hell of a Spooky Story!

The Chalet had once been the home of the wealthy Centaurian family, but now it is in disrepair, its beautiful rooms shrouded in dust. Strange things happen in the old house. There are rumours of ghosts walking the empty rooms, and those who venture there often never return. Is the house really haunted? Or do the legends stem from the vivid imaginations of the local people?
Madelines mother has just inherited the house and it seems Madeline is about to find out for hers

From the first page, The Chalet placed me into a world full of mystery, unexplainable paranormal activity, and history. All encompassing, this story is more than one person’s tale. It belongs to a home, and the entity that dwells within its walls.

The heroine, Maddie is stuck between a rock and a hard place. Her mother’s cancer has advanced, and the one place she wants to return to is the one Madd

Madeline’s haunting memories of her brief visit to the chalet when she was younger are still at the forefront of her mind when her mother makes her death bed wish for them both to return there to spend her mothers last hours.

Right from the start there is an air of menace. Tara Fox Hall built just enough tension to have me reading with one eye closed as I imagined moving through the shadows and dust in a chalet from which no outsider every returns. Well written and spooky. Best read with a glass
