'As ghost stories go, this one is as spinetingling as any I have ever read with the perfect amount of scare factor through some vivid descriptions and a well-written story. It starts in 1936, setting some of the scenes before skipping ahead to current times. It is a good story and fans of the paranormal will enjoy it.'

'There are some truly spooky moments in Haunting in Hartley. Early on we are introduced to a child murder that is continuously referenced throughout the book. When the six-year-old ghost shows up to assist in some supplemental haunting I couldn't help but squirm away from the images. I mean, what's scarier than a child ghost? Not a lot. In the midst of a mental battle with the phantom, Clarisse gets an inside look at the moment of the child's death. It was at the hands of a priest who was supposed to protect the boy. It's a gut-punch of a scene and I saw how effective Haunting in Hartley could be. The book has a few great moments of the grotesque like this one.'
Joseph Edwin Haeger, Independent Book Review
'Australian author Janice Tremayne has explored and understands cultural superstitions and their impact on our lives. She is originally from South-East Asia and now lives in Melbourne, Australia. Her HAUNTING CLARICE SERIES, of which HAUNTING IN HARTLEY is Book 2, offers strong evidence that Janice is an important emerging author of the paranormal/ghost/supernatural genre.'

'A first-class supernatural ghost story with perfect pacing. A spooky tale that will raise more than a few hairs on the back of your neck. It comes recommended, only if you have the nerve to read it! Don't come crying to me if this isn't your genre! A well-deserved five stars from me. Looking forward to reading more from this author in the future.'
★★★★★ Piaras VINE VOICE, Amazon Vine Reviewer
'The book is well written, the main characters are perfectly well described, and with a very specific personality perfectly build-up, the pace is quick and steady and has twists and turns enough to keep you in your toes and experience the horror that may come.'
★★★★★ Quirru VINE VOICE, Amazon Vine Reviewer
'Haunting in Hartley is a heart-thumping, adrenalin burst novel that can get you scared, and at the same time, it is entertaining. Once you hold unto the pages of this book, you will never want to let go till you reach the last page.'
★★★★★ KarynH VINE VOICE, Amazon Vine Reviewer
'This book does a wonderful job of interweaving a very real and grounded setting with the paranormal. The history supplied, while I'm unsure of its veracity, was intriguing and kept me sucked into the tale. I can't recommend this book enough to anyone who loves horror.'

This is book 2 in the series and although I’d not read the first, I certainly didn’t feel I was missing anything and it does say it can be read as a standalone. The book follows Clarisse the young heroine of these tales. The scene is set as we learn background information about the strangely curious Father Grimaldi. From this point on the reader is taken on the spooky story of all things evil. Will the dark spirit possess Clarisse or will she inherit the curse or confront it?
As the plot thickens the more the reader becomes engrossed. It really was an interesting read that sets chills running. I’ll be honest, I wouldn’t want to be home alone while reading this, or even read before bedtime. I can’t say I am the biggest fan of ghost stories but this was well written and enjoyable. A lot of thought and the authors hard work was apparent.
I enjoyed the story, character development, and dialogue. There were plenty of plot twists that I didn’t see coming and that added to the books mystique. When I stopped reading to work, I found myself wondering what happened in the book, and replaying parts of the novel in my head to see if I could figure more out. It’s been a while since I enjoyed a book this much. This is a first-class supernatural ghost story with perfect pacing.
A spooky tale that will raise more than a few hairs on the back of your neck. It comes recommended, only if you have the nerve to read it! Don’t come crying to me if this isn’t your genre! A well-deserved five stars from me. Looking forward to reading more from this author in the future.
The sins of the past poison places where no priest wanted to go. They were caught up in a sinister game of trickery by the devil and phantoms become masters of the den of dark souls. There are warnings but the truth about a warning, it is like a death sentence. The phantom is an evil spirit and embroiled in a legacy of lies, trickery, and harmful behavior—it could not be trusted.
The basement of the orphanage is a seat of secrecy. It was locked through a series of trap doors and bolts, the children couldn’t venture into that cursed room. Perhaps a phantom’s mystical powers to predict unforeseen and unexpected outcomes was an unwavering curse, bestowed upon it as part of the evil blight—the pact with the devil unbeknown to it when tricked into a false pretense. The keeper of the cobalt chest, in the basement is holder of predictions, fosters unimaginable wealth that cannot be used or enjoy—a life of eternal misery.
In 2020, Jack Hartley is the ghost hunter—Paranormal Jack. He keeps people intrigued in Hartley. His stories created an aura of mystery and suspense about the place. A benevolent man of the frock, Father Giorgio Grimaldi, went missing without a trace in 1936. The presbytery across the round was an orphanage until 1936 when the Catholic Church closed it down.
Clarisse was from the Philippines, a country shrouded in superstition and old wives’ tales. Superstitions went back hundreds of years in her family and had been ingrained in her upbringing. Harry an investigator, understood this well and played it to his advantage, having spent significant time in her country and getting to know Clarisse. Clarisse had left her life in Manila to come and live with Harry in Australia.
Harry and Clarisse work together to find the truth about the mystery of the apparitions. A ghost story fit for the big screen and which I thoroughly enjoyed.
