Ghosts Take Over Havenport!
Not real ghosts, don’t be silly people! Halloween is right around the corner and folks are gearing up for the annual Halloween ball at Havencroft Manor. I know I have my costume all picked out, how about you? Let’s hope Mrs. X can come up with something new this year, she almost split the seams of her Naughty Nurse costume last year. Yikes!
The Witching Hour will soon be upon us—anyone think Havencroft Manor’s most famous dearly departed will stop by for a visit? Such a haunting tale of love and betrayal makes this gossip columnist stand up and take notice. Keep reading, and we’ll take a stroll down memory lane to find out all the juicy details.
The room above Serendipity is open for business. Looks like they kicked off rentals with a séance on behalf of our favorite philanthropist. Rumor has it, he has a ghost problem. Some say he’s trying to get rid of the problem, while others are convinced he’s trying to bring The Ghost of You back to life. With the Goddess’s help, I guess anything’s possible.
Sorry, ladies, but looks like our hunky veterinarian may be off the market soon. A certain divorcee was hired to spruce up his bachelor pad, but from the look of things, my money’s on them turning it into a family home instead. Should be cozy with their latest rescue dog and the soldier’s spirit that tagged along. So long as A Spirit’s Bond doesn’t stand in their way, should be fun to watch.
They say the new widow in town has a way with ghosts. In fact, one may have followed her into town. To help or hinder? Hard to tell. Maybe the ruggedly handsome carpenter fixing up Havencroft Manor will find a way to help out a Kindred Spirit.
Come to think of it, maybe I spoke too soon about those ghosts.
Don’t forget to stock up on candy and have a Happy Halloween!
Halloween is right around the corner and the residents of Havenport are in for some spooky encounters. Four emotional stories told straight from the heart.
The Ghost of You – In the genre of paranormal romance, this story nails it on all levels. Imagine falling in love with a ghost in your youth but one day out of the blue, she just vanished. Years later, you can sense her again but what does she want? This is Dean’s story and it was so moving, I cried a little. I connected immediately with both Lila and Dean and the ending tugged at my heartstrings. Praise the Goddess!
The Witching Hour – This story, by far, is the best one in the box set. Rachel has returned to Havenport, for one last glimpse at Havenport Manor. She’s lost something precious, a locket, and as she searches all over the Manor, memories flood her. Just when all is lost, she discovers she must forgive the one person who’s betrayed her. Casie is one of my favorite authors and she has the uncanny ability to suck you into a story with an emotional response. The ending moved me to tears.
A Spirit’s Bond – Take one book boyfriend vet, a divorcee determined to make her own way plus a military rescue dog and you get an addictive yet spooky story. I loved watching the budding romance and the mystery behind the sudden appearance of a rescue dog. I loved the ending (and no I won’t give it away). You have to read it for yourself and discover just how powerful a bond is between a soldier and his dog.
Kindred Spirit – Someone is haunting a widow. Who is it and what can they want? Is it a message of love or evil in intent? While I understand many widows struggle with loneliness after their beloved has passed away, I find the premise of falling in love with someone else hard to relate to. My beliefs on soulmates differ than the author’s but it didn’t detract from my enjoyment of the story. I enjoyed the hauntings and the ending was pleasing. A wonderful mature romance.
