Better Homes and Hauntings, Molly Harper

This sounded a decent book, though I’d not read any of Molly’s work before, so I put in a request. Well, it was fun, very gentle and lighthearted, some sweet humour mixed with some light danger, main characters that were interesting and a good mix, sweet Nina and Cindy, dotty Dotty, Deacon the Geek, and Jake the Rake who’s not as slick underneath as the man he portrays. Then there’s the dastardley Ex of Nina’s – Rick the dick, and would be next Mrs Deacon the awful bi tch Regina….I do love those character types in my reading.
Well, like I said it was a fun read, some humour, lots of hauntings and spooky moments, not head under the covers Amytyville horror type, but ones that fit the gentle, easy read this is. I enjoyed it but wasn’t gripped by it, it’s not one I couldn’t put aside while I did something else…but that how it goes with books. It’s a subjective thing, book reviewing. We all like something different, and for those that love the gentle easy to read style this will be perfect and a five star, just not me.
It’s a slowly unfolding tale of family history and mysteries, with characters all facing some danger while they stay on the island. That brings out some protective streaks and helps the developing romances. I liked the way the ghost elements played out, and like I said I Loved Regina – characters like her add some spice into the mix. It was just a bit too sweet, too gentle for me though for a high star re reader. I need a bit more intense drama and emotion.
Stars: 3.5 it’s a decent read, well thought out and ties up neatly. I hate books that lead unanswered questions and Molly covers everything in the final pages.

About jeanniezelos

I'm an avid reader, love my kindle and I have my head in a novel for hours daily : ) Mum used to say I'd read toilet paper if it was printed- it wasn't, so i had to contend myself with the back and sides of the cereal packets. I've always Needed to read and we had few books when i was a child hence my penchant for reading anything including adverts then... I review mainly contemporary, erotic and paranormal romance books though dystopian and urban fantasy also appeal. I'm currently rated around the 300 mark on amazon.co.uk for my reviews. I try to keep them structured and to say what I do and don't like about a book so other readers can use my review as a guide to whether they may enjoy the book.
