The Review

When Elda and her boyfriend visit his ancestral home in North Northamptonshire, Elda feels a strong connection to an 18th-century painting of Lord Lucas Lovegrove. That connection takes on a sinister tone in Lured by the Ghost Rake.

Author Marianna Green takes a new approach to the paranormal genre as ghostly Lord Lucas seemingly provides Elda a front-row seat to the past. The visions take her back in time where she witnesses the sadness of Rose, Lady Lovegrove. The story takes a twist when the ghost somehow manages to manifest, putting Elda and her boyfriend at risk.

It’s a short read, coming in at a bit over 100 pages. The author successfully creates suspenseful scenarios, including an abandoned pagoda on the property. The ending provides a satisfactory conclusion for all involved.

REVIEW AUTHOR

My name is Amy W., and I am a book addict. I will never forget the day I came home from junior high school to find my mom waiting for me with one of the Harlequin novels from my stash. As she was gearing up for the "you shouldn't be reading this" lecture, I told her the characters get married in the end. I'm just glad she didn't find the Bertrice Small book hidden in my closet. I have diverse reading tastes, evident by the wide array of genres on my Kindle. As I made the transition to an e-reader, I found myself worrying that something could happen to it. As a result, I am now the proud owner of four Kindles -- all different kinds, but plenty of back-ups! "Fifty Shades of Grey" gets high marks on my favorites list -- not for character development or dialogue (definitely not!), but because it blazed new ground for those of us who believe provocative fiction is more than just an explicit cover. Sylvia Day, Lexie Blake, and Kristin Hannah are some of my favorite authors. Speaking of diverse tastes, I also enjoy Dean Koontz, Iris Johansen, and J.A. Konrath. I’m always ready to discover new-to-me authors, especially when I toss in a palate cleanser that is much different than what I would normally read. Give me something with a well-defined storyline, add some suspense (or spice), and I am a happy reader. Give me a happily ever after, and I am downright giddy.
