I think the scariest part for me was when the group first starts to realize the seriousness of the situation and just how absolutely messed up Martha was.

Ghost possession is scary enough, but for Charlie, she just assumed that Jay was an abusive person. If she had never started having the encounters, she may never have found out that the person she lived with for years was actually a good person.
Aside from the final scene, I agree with this. I never would have thought about Jay being possessed for most of his and Charlie's relationship.

Probably the scariest part was when Doug was attacking Charlie. That was fairly creepy.

Yeah, that was hard to write for me. I know some folks don't see the value in their relationship; but I love them together and when he was trying to hurt her it hurt my heart. I had to write it though. ?

The very beginning of the book scared me the most. Not knowing exactly what the entity was creeped me out, and my mind was brimming with all sorts of theories!

What scared me the most was the attack on Beth at the library. The moment I read 'Click Click. Click click' I knew something terrible was going to happen.
