The Haunting of Gillespie House by Darcy Coates

Elle can't believe her luck; she's spending a month house-sitting the beautiful Gillespie property. Hidden near the edge of the woods and an hour's drive from the nearest town, its dark rooms and rich furniture entice her to explore its secrets. There's even a graveyard hidden behind the house, filled with tombstones that bear an identical year of death.

If only the scratching in the walls would be quiet…

The house’s dark and deadly history quickly becomes tangled with Elle’s life. At the centre of it is Jonathan Gillespie, the tyrannical cult leader and original owner of the house. As Elle soon learns - just because he’s dead, doesn’t mean he’s gone. @goodreads

 I love the creepy cover of this book with that old house! I enjoyed this ghost story and it actually had a happy ending :)

Elle was so happy that she was going to get to watch the Gillespie House while Mr. and Mrs. Gillespie went out of town for a bit. She wandered through all of the rooms and found some really nice antique furniture in the upstairs rooms that no one ever went into for some reason.

She found an old cemetery that had mostly Gillespie relatives in it. She started doing research on the place and found out about some of the residents that lived there years ago.

She also found out in all of her searching that there were some ghosts still lurking around the house, one good and one bad.

She made it a mission to help out the good spirit and in so doing found out an old mystery that the owners have wanted to know for about four years now. All of this turns out good in the end for everyone involved.

I loved this little ghost story, it has all of the good stuff of a creepy house with ghosts and secrets.
