From the Amazon description:

The Good Houseis the critically acclaimed story of supernatural suspense, as a woman searches for the inherited power that can save her hometown from evil forces.

The home that belonged to Angela Toussaint’s late grandmother is so beloved that the townspeople in Sacajawea, Washington call it the Good House. But that all changes one summer when an unexpected tragedy takes place behind its closed doors, and the Toussaint’s family history—and future—is dramatically transformed.

Angela has not returned to the Good House since her son, Corey, died there two years ago. But now, Angela is finally ready to return to her hometown and go beyond the grave to unearth the truth about Corey’s death. Could it be related to a terrifying entity Angela’s grandmother battled seven decades ago? And what about the other senseless calamities that Sacajawea has seen in recent years? Has Angela’s grandmother, an African American woman reputed to have “powers,” put a curse on the entire community?

A thrilling exploration of secrets, lies, and divine inspiration, The Good House will haunt readers long after its chilling conclusion.

This book was amazing. There wasn’t one time I was confused, upset, or disappointed. Every page was a moment of, “Oh my lanta!”

This was such a great spin on haunted houses and generational curses. Just when you think a trope has been played out and played death, along comes Tananarive Due and this driving story of good versus evil.

I absolutely would – and have – recommend this book to anyone looking for a good horror book. Ghosts, demons, voodoo, love triangle, loss, family secrets. This book has it all. I am so glad I found this book and will shout from the roof for everyone to read it.

Check out this blog post from Tananarive Due.
