BLOG TOUR / REVIEW FOR - THE HAUNTING OF SPRINGETT HALL BY E.B. WHEELER

Haunting of Springett Hall blog tour

ABOUT THE BOOK:

Eighteen-year-old Lucy doesn’t know how she became a ghost, but the more she remembers of her life in Victorian England, the more she wants to forget. Her only hope of changing the mistakes of her past is to enlist the help of a servant named Philip—the one living person who can see her. This impossible romance story is filled with delightful period detail and plenty of mystery.

MY REVIEW / THOUGHTS:

I picked this book up the other night and couldn't put it down.  It was such a fun book to read.  It was an interesting take on haunting :).

Lucy wakes up one evening and cannot remember who she is or why she is where she is.  Her skin seems translucent and she can walk through people.  When she realizes that she is dead, she feels lost.  

She finally runs into a young man named Phillip and realizes that someone can actually see her.  There is more to Phillip than meets the eye.  Together they search for the reason Lucy is stuck in the house and in doing so open up the door for other "spirits" to cause problems in the house.

This was such a great book.  I couldn't put it down.  I had to find out what happened :).  I never thought I would root for a ghost and a human.  hehe.  I love ghost stories, but this was a different take on a ghost story.  Lucy is kind and loving.  Trying to find the reasons she is bound to earth and to the house.  Not many ghosts stories are so sweet.  It had it's intense moments as well!

Secret passage, spells, dangerous dreams, and romance.  Yes, please :).  That is just what you get with this book.  I hope you take the opportunity to read this book.
