Bag of Bones by Stephen King

Four years after the sudden death of his wife, bestselling novelist Mike Noonan is still grieving, unable to write, and plagued by vivid nightmares set at Sara Laughs, the Maine summerhouse that seems to be calling to him. Reluctantly returning to the lakeside getaway, Mike finds a small town in the soulless grip of a powerful millionaire, a single mother fighting to keep her three-year-old daughter, and a miasma of ghostly visitations and escalating terrors at his remote cabin. Drawn to Mattie’s dilemma and falling in love with her and with young Kyra, Mike must still face the terrifying forces that have been unleashed at the lake’s edge—what do they want with Mike Noonan?

I thought I would review this book, as the 2 part mini series starts in a couple of weeks, December 11th, on A&E.

Amazon is selling a new copy of the book with a "movie tie-in" and of course, a new cover, but the book is not available until December 6th, so I am unable to let you know what was added, if anything. I was surprised to see this book only has 529 pages, that's fairly short for a King novel, and it got a 3.68 star rating on Goodreads!

I'm looking forward to the mini series, as I've been extremely happy with all the TV movies but have never like any of the theater movies.
