The Wedding Gift
The Comeback - released March 2011

Description from the amazon:
17 year old Leeann Worthier is the perfect girl in town - or so she says. George Willets is the heir to a booming petroleum business. When they announce their engagement, George's controlling mother is unimpressed, and Leeann absolutely refuses to live with her mother-in-law. So George gives his new wife a house as a wedding gift.

Thirty years before, the same house hosted a grisly scene: George's uncle and cousins were all slaughtered and his aunt Robina accused of both murder and suicide.

The house is a gorgeous, well-maintained mansion, but has stood empty since the tragedy. It's intimidating, but who is Leeann to turn down a free house? When the ghost of Robina begins to haunt Leeann, she realizes she's made a huge mistake ....

My two-bits:
In-a-word(s): sugar
A doozy of a ghost story!

I was glued to the story to the very end by. Even bust a gut a couple times with the dialogue and character interactions.

This book is part of a series but works just fine for me as a stand-alone. In fact because I loved the ending of this book, I'm kind of afraid to see what happens to Leeann in the next book.


* if you haven't already, read Kathleen's Wereland guest post: Alice meet MethWolf
