Pru Bailey has just found out that Laura Bailey isn't her birth mother, but her mother's relative that adopted her when she was 5 years old. She inherits a house by her real parents and is on her way from California to New England to see the house. But the house is haunted by the ghost of Jane Adams, her birth mother that was stabbed to death by her father. At least, that's what the rumors say and the police who didn't really have much evidence, except the fact that Mr Adams committed a suicide after. The logical explanation was that it was a crime of passion and the reason for it were their marriage problems.

However, Pru is suddenly having visions that will revel the mystery of her parents death.

I did enjoy this read, though it's a novella, and I rarely read novella's because I know I will have some issues mostly because they are too short and the author doesn't have the "space" to express him/herself. Yes, I had the same feeling with this novella too. It felt like the story would have been more interesting if there were more pages to it.
What bothered me the most is the romance element in this book. It just felt like it was added during editing..Let me explain, I didn't mind the romance scenes and I am not saying they are not well written, but somehow felt they were introduced too early. What I loved was the mystery and action element in the story, that's what made this novella interesting to me. It felt like watching and episode from "Ghost whisperer" and I love that series.
It is an easy and enjoyable read, and I would like to thank the author and the R2R program for giving me a copy.

My rating
