I wished there would have been more about the ghost itself in the review! You piqued my interest and didn't expand but I assume that would have fallen under spoilers? 8-) :no-spoil: Good review, thanks!

This sounds like a book that packs a lot into it. I love the idea that the author is creating a series of stand-alone books, where what ties everything together is the location.

I was mesmerized by the cover, but I’m captivated by your review. And since I grew up in East Texas, it seems eerily perfect to have stumbled across this mysterious and spirited tale. Can’t wait to read it!

Eden getting mystified about where she came from and why the house belongs to her gives me the idea that story should be very much captivating to read.
life is only knowing the unknown, we can do this by reading books easily- I believe this is my own quote. If someone quoted this before I am glad to know.

Mystery, thriller, romance...all great genres. The plot of this story is intriguing. I wonder what the secrets of the property are and why the house was left to her. I guess I'll have to read it to find out. Thanks for a great review!

It definitely was part of the story but not a huge part. Thanks for reading my review and commenting!

It really does. I agree it is nice that the stories all take place in the same area, one that the author is familiar with. Thanks for stopping by and commenting!

Latest Review: No More Deaths by Sue Lefebvre

Post by LinaMueller » 05 Nov 2019, 16:28

The House on Camp Ruby Road seems to have an exciting plot with a hint of mystery and a little bit of romance. A well crafted social critique about an important issue seems to be a plus. That's the way to go, Prisallen. Great review. :tiphat:
Heart! We will forget him!
You an I, tonight!
You may forget the warmth he gave,
I will forget the light.

When you have done, pray tell me
That I my thoughts may dim;
Haste! lest while you're lagging.
I may remember him!

Emily Dickinson
