The Bargaining by Carly Anne West
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Penny is sent to live with her father, stepmother, and stepbrother.
She ends up spending the summer with her stepmother, as her mother works on flipping an old house in the woods near a small town.
Bad things have happened in that house, in those woods; the locals give them problems; her stepmother is frantic not to lose her investment.
This as a good, scary, haunted house book. The two things I liked best about it: Penny, who is very real in how she handles herself and the situation, neither too brave nor too timid. And, that while there is a local cute guy, this is not a romance, there is no real romance.
I'm so over every book having to also have a romance in it. Can't it just be a scary book (or a mystery or whatever.)
So this: four stars because scary and no romance.
