The Haunting of Alcott Manor
1st August 2017
She has a gift. His family has a past. Can they solve a century-old mystery… together?
Gemma doesn't miss working for the family business. She has a knack for restoring older properties, but after a vicious haunting nearly killed her, she was more than ready to move on. Gemma agrees to one last job to save her parents’ business, but the 1880s historical estate has its fair share of dark secrets…
Henry Alcott wants nothing more than to free the spirit from his family’s property. Ever since the original owner was wrongfully convicted of murder and sentenced to death, the ghost has made sure every restoration effort was a miserable failure. But there’s something about Gemma that makes Henry believe in a much brighter future…
Gemma and Henry must solve a hundred-year mystery to complete the restoration in time. Failure to do so could cost Gemma’s parents their business, but staying in the house could cost them much, much more…
The Haunting of Alcott Manor is a contemporary gothic paranormal romance. If you like fateful chemistry, engaging characters, and mysteries that keep you guessing until the very end, then you’ll love the first book in Alyssa Richards’ chilling new series.
Solely based on what I’ve read I give this book 3 Stars.
I won’t say at what mark I stopped but all I can say when it comes to the book it is me. All me. The beginning starts of strong and the author sucks you into the book and you need to know more and you need it as quick as possible.
I was enjoying the spooky aspect of everything but then the main characters meet and on the same day they had sex. For some of you this won’t be an issue but it was for me. I felt as if there wasn’t any chemistry between the couple and was under the impression they didn’t like one another.
As to the plot of Alcott Manor? Brilliant, spooky and interesting until it got too spooky for me and creepy. Not to mention I was home alone last night so not a good time to read a Gothic Romance. I nearly stuck my kindle in the freezer. I myself am a firm believer and have had experiences I can’t explain and reading it during the day won’t help because night time will come soon enough. My hat off to the author to scarring the bejesus out of little old me.
Nevertheless I can recommend this book even if it isn’t my type of book.
