WINTERBAY ABBEY by John Bladek and Javonna Duroe, narrated by Matt Godfrey
Winterbay Abbey: A Ghost Story - John Bladek,Davonna Juroe,Matt Godfrey

 

WINTERBAY ABBEY is a beautifully written Gothic style ghost story and I adored it, from start to finish!

 

When I saw this being compared to Susan Hill's THE WOMAN IN BLACK, I was a bit hesitant because, to be honest, I did not like that tale AT ALL. It was repetitious and I felt it lacked the Gothic, quiet horror atmosphere that I love so much. I needn't have worried because this book was much better than that one and it had the added advantage of Matt Godfrey's narration.

 

This is the story of a man and his wife, Will & Emily, getting over a recent accident where the wife nearly lost her hand. They've also just discovered that Emily is pregnant. Her damaged hand has affected her ability to contribute to the family's financial resources and times are tight. When Will's boss offers makes him take a job in Maine drawing up architecture plans to turn an abandoned abbey into a resort hotel, he jumps on the chance to secure his family's financial future. At the last minute, he decided to invite Emily to meet him there. Will their plans work out? Will they succeed in having a happy and healthy family? You'll have to read this to find out!

 

I do love me a quiet horror story. What does that mean? For me, it means atmospheric, inspiring feelings of dread and fear, without spilling a lot of blood and guts. This must be difficult to write, because, to be honest, I haven't read that many good, quiet horror stories. This one is better than good, it's fantastic! There were a few instances where I thought Will made a bad decision or two, but overall, I also felt that it was realistic in the telling, and I was rooting for our couple to make it through.

 

With the always rich narration of Matt Godfrey, I felt this couple come to life. I hope that you give it a chance and let Will and Emily come alive for you.

 

Highly recommended!

Ghost (Track) - Jason Reynolds

I'm the type of person who doesn't have a set genre I read. If i see a book that seems good, I read it, that simple. So when I saw this book and read the preview, I decided to read it. And boy was that a good decision, because so far I love the book. So far I've read to page 33. In the story the main character Ghost but formally named Castle Cranshaw was first introduced as he is getting sunflower seeds. We find out that he is really interested in World Records because he knows a lot about them. We also find out that he has had a troubled past with an abusive father. He tells the story on how one night his dad pulled a gun on him and his mother and they ran out of the house, which is when he found out he was good at running. So far this book is an amazing read and I'm enjoying it a lot. I erg everyone to read it.

The Ghost Wore Yellow Socks (The Ghost Wore Yellow Socks, #1) by Josh Lanyon Review
The Ghost Wore Yellow Socks - Josh Lanyon

His romantic weekend in ruins, shy twenty-something artist Perry Foster learns that things can always get worse when he returns home from San Francisco to find a dead body in his bathtub. A dead body in a very ugly sportscoat -- and matching socks. The dead man is a stranger to Perry, but that's not much of a comfort; how did a strange dead man get in a locked flat at the isolated Alton Estate in the wilds of the "Northeast Kingdom" of Vermont? Perry turns to help from "tall, dark and hostile" former navy SEAL Nick Reno -- but is Reno all that he seems?

 

 

Review

4 Stars for the wonderful old fashion who done it in a cold Vermont winter and the writing.

 

3 Stars for the romance. I loved Perry but Nick stayed too closed off for me to get real joy out of the love story.

 

However, this was great sneaking around a creepy house trying to solve a crime fun.

Do not read if bugs freak you out
The Ghost of Shapley Hall - Amy Cross

Guy meets girl.  Goes to girl's stately pile, and shit happens.  This book does really remind of M R James.  

 

However, I'm sorry but the typo about a living character who doesn't have children being caught up in the history of her descendents made me laugh so hard.

New Release Review! Ghost Tracker (Trackers #2) Jenna Kernan!
Ghost Tracker - Jenna Kernan

 

 

When wolf Skinwalker, Nick Chien, is attacked by ghosts, the Thunderbirds leave him at the mercy of an enemy healer, a Dreamwalker, with supernatural powers as dangerous as his own. Her duty as a Spirit Child is to kill him. But she instead determines to learn if his wild story of being attacked by ghosts is true. 

While walking in his dreams, Native American Jessie Healy, sees the truth...the threat is real. Nagi, the Ruler of the Circle of Ghosts, is using his ghosts to take possession of humans and attack the living. She also discovers, that in his dreams, they can explore a passion forbidden between their people when awake. But upon waking, they face more than the discovery of their attraction. They must confront an enemy that could destroy them both.

 

 

 

Jenna Kernan’s Tracker series is a wonderful world full of intriguing mythology, fascinating characters and she brings it all to life with well written descriptions that makes it easy for the readers to become part of the story as it takes place.

 

Nick and Jessie are strong, captivating characters that easily draw readers in and then refuse to let go because they have lots of sizzling chemistry but due to cultural differences they try and fight that attraction which keeps a lot of tension and angst which makes the romance quite rocky and keeps readers wondering if this couple will reach their happily ever after moment.

 

The story starts off with a bang as the enemy targets Nick and then he finds himself injured on Jessie’s doorstep and the suspense and anticipation builds from there keeping readers on the edge of their seats with this fast paced plot.

 

The mythology mixed in with the romance and the author’s type of characters adds interest and a little something extra as it adds to readers knowledge and changes things up a bit. Skinwalkers have always fascinated me and this book really brought them to life and so I was quite enthralled with the story from the very beginning and even though I haven’t read the first one yet, I had no trouble catching on to the plot and the bad guy’s intentions, of course, now I will be adding the rest of the series to my TBR pile. 

 

 

 

Ghost Tracker is the 2nd book in the Tracker series and was

previously released by Harlequin Nocturne as Ghost Stalker.
