The Haunting Of Highdown Hall by Shani Struthers
I first “met” Shani last year with a review on her first book, Runaway Year. I absolutely adore that book, so when she told me she was writing another book I was eager to get my hands on it. I was expecting another chick lit book but what I got was sooo much more!
I was presented with The Haunting of Highdown Hall. A story about Ruby Davis and her psychic abilities, along with her colleges from Psychic Surveys. I love these kind of books, Shani has an even balance of mystery, a lil bit of romance and heart pumping moments throughout the book (now that’s what I love!)
Hats off to Shani! I was worried about the jump of genre but what the hell do I know?! This story was awesome!!!
I was gripped from the word go! All the characters, even Jed the dog, were well received. I could easily vision each one in my head, in fact from the Pinterest board I had Theo down to a T 🙂
My favourite character was Cynthia Hart, I was intrigued in how this person would be written into the book but Shani didn’t let me down….. In fact, I was eager to get to her parts within the book. Cynthia also pulled on my heart string a little, a total diva yet hiding in the shadows totally afraid of what was out to get her, and what it was was a totally shocker! In fact I got it wrong 3 times *shocked face*.
I did want to smack the snivelling little git that inherited Highdown Hall in the head on a few occasions, no, scratch that, every time he appeared! He was rude, abrupt and just a whiny little man (well done on that Shani)
Shani is fast becoming one of my favourite authors and that’s with only 2 books under her belt. That being said she has told me she has a VERY busy year ahead of her, which is fantastic news for us readers 😀
I can’t wait for the next instalment and what the story will bring. Here’s hoping to a sooner rather than later release!
An avid reader, I’ll wade through pretty much anything but hot favourites right now are romance, horror (not gory though, more supernatural) and contemporary. Am discovering some wonderful books through Goodreads and writing circles on Facebook – haven’t had to pop into Waterstones for ages! I’m also the author of The Runaway Year, published by Omnific Publishing – a contemporary Cornish romance with a healthy dash of sass. Later this year my second novel will be available – a paranormal mystery this time. Psychic Surveys Book 1: The Haunting of Highdown Hall will be published by Crooked Cat Publishing and is the first in a series which will only get darker.
