For this collection of stories there should be separate categories for giving "stars". For example, for the "Saxton Mansion" I would give it a 5-star rating for the "story" - a story that would make S. King proud. However, the book was "self-published" (from what I understand) and consequently rife with errors. Errors that a good editor could have corrected and the author might have had a NYT best seller. At the least, the author should have had an unbiased (and knowledgeable) person to proof this book. I give it 2 stars for the number of proofing errors. All the mistakes make for difficult reading.
Of the four stories this one, The Haunting of Winchester Mansion", was by far my favorite so I give it 4.5 stars. Very well written and was easy to read, with a limited number of proofing errors. I'll explain the 4.5 rating at the end, which is a common nuisance with each of these stories.
The third in this set - "The Haunting of Quenby Mansion" - I give 4 stars because I enjoyed this story very much. However, it had more errors than I like to "read" through.
Last, we have "The Curse on Cypress Lane". This is probably another great story, but for me it was too lengthy for this kind of story - frankly I got tired reading it; hoping it would soon end. But then again that is just me. Very few errors found here, as well. I'll be generous and give this one 4 stars.
Finally, "indie" publishing - I assume this is "self-publishing digital works(?) - will not replace the old fashioned way, in my opinion. With few exceptions - meaning having an association with someone who can judge the story objectively on its merit as a successful attempt at writing, including proofreading.
Less than 5-stars: The one thing above all, for me, is that if these books had not been combined into a set I probably would not have read them. I do not care for reading a story that has no ending, without me having to buy another book, then another book, to get to the end. This is not much unlike the old "serials" we used to see at the 10¢ Saturday matinee [dating myself here]. We couldn't wait to get back next week to see how it ended, only to be presented with another cliff hanger ending. However, we did get to see an all new full length feature each week. ~
***Just finished The Haunting of Winchester Mansion. This is really a very enjoyable series of books. I like supernatural mysteries without the blood and gore. Nice, easy reads thus far. I have one more m to go. I'm sticking with my 5 star review at this point.
This book, Saxton Manor, needs editing!
Now.... Winchester Mansion! What a breath of spooky goodness! I absolutely LOVED this one! Well written, well edited. This was an "I can barely put this down" kind of book. I've never read a story with this type of spin & thoroughly enjoyed it! Great characters, just enough picture painting without overdoing it.
Quenby Mansion is another unique tale! Riveting characters. There's a solid ending with just enough for the reader to anticipate a book 2.
now on to Cypress Lane, haunted house #4 in this collection 😁
