The Haunting of Springett Hall: A Review

Goodreads (Description):

Eighteen-year-old Lucy doesn’t know how she became a ghost, but the more she remembers of her life in Victorian England, the more she wants to forget. Her only hope of changing the mistakes of her past is to enlist the help of a servant named Philip—the one living person who can see her. This impossible romance story is filled with delightful period detail and plenty of mystery.

My Review:

Want a 19th century romance filled with humor and the supernatural? This is the book for you.

I don't think this book was meant to be funny, but it was. Holy moly. I died laughing at many parts. Lucy here is a ghost and Phillip here is a werewolf. And they're in love.

Haha. It's so funny and terribly depressing at the same time. To be in love with a ghost. That would just...suck.

These two lovebirds wake up without any recollection of their former lives. Their memories slowly come back as they fought to discover what the late Sir Jason did to them. Springett Hall is infused with dark magic because Sir Jason was doing crazy weird, voo doo stuff with spirits and stuff.

Phillip and Lucy do their best to protect the fleeing servants and Sir Edmund (Sir Jason's heir). There are tons of supernatural stuffs going on, which sometimes side track Phillip and Lucy from discovering how to fix their lives.

Needless to say between plot twists and romance, Phillip and Lucy find how to save the house and end Sir Jason's ghostly tyranny.

It was a cute and bittersweet end, but fit the story well. I do recommend it, as it was a quick read and made me laugh. It was fantastic.

I give this a 4 out of 5!
