Just Like Home Book Summary
“Come home.” Vera’s mother called and Vera obeyed. In spite of their long estrangement, in spite of the memories ― she’s come back to the home of a serial killer. Back to face the love she had for her father and the bodies he buried there, beneath the house he’d built for his family.
Coming home is hard enough for Vera, and to make things worse, she and her mother aren’t alone. A parasitic artist has moved into the guest house out back and is slowly stripping Vera’s childhood for spare parts. He insists that he isn’t the one leaving notes around the house in her father’s handwriting… but who else could it possibly be?
There are secrets yet undiscovered in the foundations of the notorious Crowder House. Vera must face them and find out for herself just how deep the rot goes.

This was a story about child abuse wrapped in horror with a happy ending. The horror aspect of this story was deliciously creepy and was a by-product of the abuse of Vera by her parents, Francis and Daphne, and by other actions on their part. The child abuse was not easy to read, but it needed to be explored to fully explain what was happening in the story and to develop the horror aspect. Daphne’s abuse was overt: cruel, critical and jealousy-driven. Francis’s abuse was more his teaching Vera the wrong things. He was a serial killer and set a vicious and violent example. He explained to Vera he was just trying to help his victims. As a young girl, she misunderstood that “help” as a positive thing. I think she would have followed in Francis’s footsteps had she not been stopped by his confession to his crimes and hers. I’m wondering if Frances left the peephole to the basement in Vera’s bedroom on purpose. In any event, Vera’s life was difficult, and she grew up wrong and confused and wanting to be loved. She only wanted a sister or a friend who would support and help her. The good news is that she found that in this story. I have to say that I enjoyed this book for its strangeness. All in all, it’s a fantastic book.
5.0 out of 5 stars A new favorite!

“I hope there is never a moment in your life when the love of a monster feels like the only option you have” I loved this book so so much. It was an unsettling and creepy, very messed up, love story. The ominous and otherworldly atmosphere throughout the book was profound and really made 🗝f e e l🗝 it all. I was honestly sad when it ended! Definitely a new favorite.
3.0 out of 5 stars Creepy, gruesome, interesting take from another perspective!

I don’t think this was a bad book, but maybe it wasn’t for me? I pre-ordered it because i was enthralled by the description, but I really didn’t find that it checked all my boxes. The first half started to feel scary, but overall didn’t have that edge-of-my-seat thriller feeling I’ve gotten from other books. I LOVE the idea of psychologically diving into the life of a serial killer, but the tangible supernatural part of the twist sort of lost me. I was a major major fan of The Haunting of Hill House / Bly Manor – but this fell short for me, personally. I think I would have wanted more of Frances and Daphne to help tie it together.
5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful Words About Terrible things

The writer’s prose is skillful and artistic, even though they are writing about murder, serial killers, haunted houses, and familial love/hate relationships. I did not see the ending coming, and neither will you. You may surprise yourself at how heartwarming it is, how the story leaves one… Sated…
