Received through PaperBackSwap.com.

Sally and David Curtiss knew that the old New England house was supposed to be haunted. But they weren't afraid of ghosts. That was before they learned there was nowhere in the house they were safe. Not even in each other's arms. Especially not there.

I really enjoyed this story. It was very atmospheric, and I enjoyed it more so because there wasn't so much blood and murder as opposed to suspense and psychic happenings due to the haunted house. The characters were portrayed well, and though i can't say that I really cared for David all that much, I had the same feelings of dislike towards Sally in the beginning as well... until I began to empathize with her situation a bit further along.

My only complaint about the book might be that sometimes I felt the paragraphs went on a bit too long for my taste, and that if they were split up, it might've been a bit easier to read. But I think a lot of that could also be due to the fact that I've been reading a lot of the more contemporary and/or YA authors lately, whom tend to stick to smaller paragraphs to make for easier reading. Certainly the paragraph lengths the author used here weren't outside the boundary of acceptable writing. I've just found shorter to be better for me personally in holding my interest and keeping me from getting too distracted. Obviously a lot of contemporary authors have jumped on the same bandwagon.

Cherie, I'm sorry for not journaling sooner, this book came in the mail at least two weeks ago. I must have put it on my desk so I would remember to mark it received and it got buried. Found it today while cleaning up. :)
