I have read all of Kay Hooper's thrillers but none of her earlier work until now. The Haunting of Josie is just what you want when you reach for a romance novel - light & entertaining with a guaranteed good ending. Build a fire (or do as I did and pop in a âFireplaceâ dvd), get your beverage of choice (hot chocolate, in my case), curl up & prepare to spend an enjoyable evening with a good book.
Josie Douglas came to the isolated country cottage with her research, a good alibi, and a gun. She hoped that she'd have enough time to unravel the facts behind the tragedy that years before shattered her life. Instead she found herself in a house haunted by its own dark history. A series of strange coincidences, a ghostly visitor, and a mysterious brass key provide Josie with clues to a mystery that keeps her guessing at every turn. As does Marc Westbrook-a landlord who embodies the meaning of the term drop-dead gorgeous. Soon she'll have to trust him with the secret that drove her into seclusion-a secret that has already cost one man she loved his life.
Interesting ghost story with a pinch of romance. Is the handsome landlord worth her trust or is he involved in the mysterious happenings?
If you like a little romance with your ghost story, you will enjoy this one.
This is the first Kay Hooper book I have read. It was just what I needed ... suspense, romance and intrigue, then throw in a little paranormal activity! It was a fast read; great for a cozy spot with hot tea to ward off a cold winter evening. I will be reading more of her work in the future.
