The book tells the story of a young woman who lives in a very old house haunted by four ghosts, three of whom are as sickeningly evil in death as they were in life. After being repeatedly raped by one of the ghosts while sleeping, she seeks the help of a three paranormal detectives, who eventually succeed in freeing her and the house from its evil inhabitants.
The basic premise and plot are interesting, and I very much liked the backstory. In the hands of a more talented writer, this book could have been an excellent chilling tale of horror for the more mature audience. Unfortunately, the author was not up to the challenge. There was far too much telling and not enough showing. There was a lot of unnecessary repetition, and the action dragged in spots. But the worst aspect of the book (and the reason I gave it 2 stars rather than 3) was simply the writing. Too often, the author employed simple declarative sentences at a reading level more appropriate for a younger audience than the subject matter demanded. In addition to a more sophisticated writing style, the book could greatly benefit from a good copy editing; grammar errors (especially missing commas) are numerous and the number of typos often jarred me out of the story.
Bottom Line: While the book holds a lot of promise (if for a somewhat niche market) and is worthy of a rewrite, I reluctantly recommend passing on this edition and waiting for the next.
This story takes place in the early 1800's in a small town of Leigh, Texas. Unexplained things are happening in Charlie Love's life and she is being sexually assaulted. With no where to turn she sought out the McQueen brothers and their psychic friend. Jay and Charlie were drawn together by an unknown source. Although they didn't have anything in common they couldn't break this union. They purchased a house together and over a couple of years Jay became violent with Charlie so she did the only thing she thought was right to put Jay out. She thought that when she told Doug and Steve what has been happening to her that they would laugh or think she was crazy, but it was the opposite. As the investigation progressed some ugly and sad truths were reveled.
Could this have anything to do with Charlie's mom being given away? Is there an end In sight for this sexual assault and unexplained happenings? Or is Charlie's home haunted, could she really be crazy or does she have an over active imagination?
Read the book.
What I thought of the book:
Very spine gripping, several different points of views from key characters from the 1800's and the present day key characters. If you are one those who can't do horror film at night , alone at home or at all then this book is not for you. However, if you love horror flicks any time of day and if you can watch them or read about them when your home alone then this book is right up your alley.
There is one thing that about this book that every reader should know a head of time. The person who proof read (if there was one) did not do their job and the publisher should've double checked the book before publishing it. There are a few grammar issues that you will run into but they are errors that we all make.
I loved that Ms. Green offered an alternate ending to her story. Not many authors do that and it reminded me of those choice your own adventure books I read as a child.
