With Halloween just around the corner, ghost stories make fantastic reads, and A Haunting at Hensley Hall is exactly the kind of ghost story that fits the holiday.
[easyazon-image-link asin="B005CKI3LQ" alt="A Haunting at Hensley Hall (A Ravynne Sisters Paranormal Mystery)" src="http://ecx.images-amazon.com/images/I/51ryJ-bbilL.jpg" align="left" width="307" height="500"]The story is set in an old mansion that two sisters win in an unusual contest held by a small town…the previous owners committed suicide, or so it seems, and there were no heirs, so the mansion is essentially “raffled off” to pay the back taxes that have accumulated on the property.
Of course, the mansion has a dark history, and is in a serious state of disrepair, but conveniently the sisters have the money to begin fixing it up to become a bed and breakfast. Along the way, the sisters begin to discover not only the ghosts, but the reasons for their presence, and the mystery deepens…
Mix in the forty year old disappearances of one of the previous occupants, and several of her teen aged friends…and you’ve got enough suspense in parts of the book to keep you reading well into the night!
If you’re a fan of semi-gothic, lighter horror stories, you’ll find yourself drawn into Hensley Hall along with Charlie, Meg, and the curious cast of characters they meet along the way, just as I was.
Even better, A Haunting at Hensley Hall is available in the Kindle store for just $.99, and I have to say, it’s money well spent!
