What a fun, romantic mystery "read" -- this was an earlier Barbara Michaels book that I'd never read. Glad I did! Great back porch summer reading.
Another fun one from Barbara Michaels. Nice gothic atmosphere, older heroine, interesting characters. A little predictable, but good spooky reading!
This was my first time reading something by Barbara Michaels. While I was entertained, I was a little disappointed in how the book turned out, only because my expectations were slightly higher. I was intrigued by the first few chapters of the book, thinking there would be more mystery surrounding the old witch and the haunted house. As the book drew on and the plot became more involved with the townspeople than the history of the house itself, my disappointment began to settle in. It was also easy for me to predict who or what the sinister, evil entity would be at the end.
Overall it was an enjoyable read, but didn't keep me guessing.
A great book which keeps you guessing all the way...Once again Barbara Michaels had done a great page turner...One that once you pick up you can not put down.
For all the praise this author seems to have garnered, this was, I thought, a terrible book. The story is so full of holes you could drive through, characters aren't interesting, the main premise just falls flat.
It was more than her dream house. For Ellen March, buying the secluded old house nestled in the pine woods marked the start of a new life. Now she could put her failed marriage behind her, enjoy the quiet solitude of small town life, and get to know her worldly new neighbor, handsome Norman McKay but strange wisions began to cloud her mind the shadowy figure of a woman a ghostly white cat and Ellen's safe haven slowly became her prison. Had she buried the past? or had dark legend come back to haunt her?
Typical Barbara Michaels.
