“A puppet is a possession that possesses the possessor”
Hendrix has done it again, y’all!
How to sell a Haunted house is everything I never knew I needed in a horror book, and *spoiler alert* it’s not actually about a haunted house. I mean kind of, but it’s so much deeper than that. The puppets sucked me in, and the wild ass family drama kept me going.
When Mark and Louise’s parents unexpectedly pass away in a car accident Louise comes home to South Carolina to help her brother with the arrangements. Mark and Louise have never been close, their strained relationship made worse by the reading of their parents will.
The drama unfolds as we learn that Louise gets her moms prized art collection (haunted puppets included) and Mark gets everything else. Everything.
As Louise starts clearing her moms art collection from the house scary things start happening….and only get worse.
Mark and Louise have to work together to not only clean out and sell the house, but try to stay alive while doing it.
Hendrix’s campy style never gets old to me, and I absolutely love how the book is sectioned by the stages of grief. It was a perfect added touch! I found myself invested in the family dynamics and fell in love with every character. Even Pupkin.
I finished this book in one day and as soon as I closed it I wished I could read it again for the first time.
This book made me laugh AND cry. I really loved it, and I will always recommend it!
