How about a little spooky to get us over the Wednesday slump? Take a little trip to the Ghost House, a creepy place that might hold the key to murders…
The Ghost House by Helen Phifer. Amazon for $0.99. There’s not much that scares Annie Graham. Not even the horrors she has witnessed during her years on the police force.
When she agrees to look after her brother’s farmhouse, she finds herself drawn to the crumbling old mansion in the woods nearby. But an innocent exploration of the empty ruin and the discovery of the diary of former resident Alice leaves her more than a little spooked. She knows it holds the secrets to a dark past, and she has to find out more.
What was the terrible truth that Alice uncovered? And how could what happened to her over 100 years ago help solve the murders of young women in the town?
Annie needs to stop the serial killer before she becomes his next victim – but the past comes back to haunt her in ways she could never have expected.
It’s still Free Book Friday, and if you can’t laugh at the week that just took the tinsel from your branches, then at least you can laugh at this book. And it occurs to me that’s a seasonal reference, quite out of season. Well, no matter, this one looks funny, and you can’t beat free.
