After many lonely years, Abby’s just gotten married. She met her new husband―a recently widowed dentist―when he arrived in town with his young daughter, seeking a new start. Although it’s strange living in the shadow of her predecessor, Abby does her best to be a good wife and mother. But the more she learns about her new husband’s first wife, the more things don’t add up. And Abby starts to wonder . . . was Sheila’s death really by natural causes? As Abby sinks deeper into confusion, Sheila’s memory seems to become a force all its own, ensnaring Abby in a mystery that leaves her obsessed, fascinated, and desperately in love for the first time in her life.
Whoa. Emily Carroll has a whopping 256-page thriller coming out this August courtesy @01FirstSecond. Emily is by far my favorite horror cartoonist and everything she's produced has been transcendentally gorgeous and harrowing. pic.twitter.com/zrMFemUmu0— Sean Edgar (@seanmedgar) January 12, 2023
It has just come to my attention that there's a new Emily Carroll graphic novel, A GUEST IN THE HOUSE, coming from First Second this August, and suddenly life seems worth living. Carroll is one of the absolute best cartoonists you'll ever come across, and I am absurdly excited. pic.twitter.com/0TLCUCahrk— Hagai Palevsky (he/him) (@DialHForHagai) January 11, 2023
