My Cold Kentucky Home – a Review

Could a land be so haunted that the residents of any houses or apartments built on that land are doomed? We’ve all heard about the possessed house in Amityville, but are you ready for the horrors of Hubertson?

my-cold-kentucky-homeThe supernatural occurrences at Hubertson and the land it is built on are subtle, but that doesn’t mean the happenings aren’t deadly. There is a reason that the title of this story is My Cold Kentucky Home.

A young girl hears mysterious voices that no one else does. Her parents thought the voices were just her imagination. They really should have taken what their daughter told them more seriously.

The legend of the Pope Lick Monster is brought into this tale. Is this monster real or is it a figment of peoples’ imaginations? Some teenage boys set out to find out the truth about this creature. For one of them, things don’t turn out so well.

A woman goes back to the house she grew up in once her mother dies. Unfortunately, she makes the mistake of leaving her cell phone in the car.

Everything that happens does so at Hubertson and the land it sits on. What happened in the past to cause this land hold such power over the people who live on it? I don’t think that I would enjoy living on that piece of land.

This great story was written by a Kentucky author. Lori A. Moore tells a great creepy story. Her writing is easy to understand and not bogged down by excessive description. The ending is left open for a creepy sequel that I hope she writes. And her dedication was awesome!

If you are looking for a chilling story on a rainy afternoon or in the darkness of night, My Cold Kentucky Home is short enough to be read in just a few hours.
