A book that is perfect for the Halloween, blustery night curled up in a sofa with logs burning in the fireplace…🎃👻🎃👻
OK honestly that is dream scenario for all book addicts, the absolute peace to read a book.
The Haunting Of Beatrix Greene Vol 1 is like an episode series perfect to be telecast to Netflix or Amazon Prime or any OTT platforms.
The prologue of the story runs a chill up the spine with a gruesome scene of murder and mayhem. The chapters are kept short and snappy with events unfolding one after another. The spooky, gothic atmosphere of the manor is exceedingly well done with the darkness permeating every corner of the house.
For a medium who doesn’t believe in ghosts, Beatrix aims to provide the answers sought by James Walker, The Lord of Ashbury Manor. Along with Amanda Reynolds, Harry and Stanhope, Beatrix proceeds with the tasks entrusted to her but realizes the extent of the evil presence that rains hell on each and every one of them.
The last segment of the story was bit bizarre with too many things happening and dramatic and one particular scene with Stanhope was utterly ghastly and nightmarish.
Beatrix Greene is an excellent character and her relationship with Harry a delight to read, the romance between Beatrix and James a perfect addition to this tale of good vs evil. I hope their adventures are just beginning and there are many more stories to come.
I honestly recommend heading out to the serial box site (https://www.serialbox.com/serials/the-haunting-of-beatrix-greene)and read or listen to the episodes. I am not a huge Audiobook fan, but this, I urge everyone to give a listen to coz its gonna scare your pants off with the thrills and the spooky background music!
Beatrix Greene has made a name for herself in Victorian England as a reputable spiritual medium, but she’s a fraud: even she knows ghosts aren’t real. But when she’s offered a lucrative job by James Walker—a scientist notorious for discrediting pretenders like her—Beatrix takes the risk of a lifetime. If her séance at the infamously haunted Ashbury Manor fools him, she will finally have true financial freedom. If she fails, her secret will become her public shame.
But James has his own dark secrets, and he believes only a true medium can put them to rest. When Beatrix’s séance awakens her real gift—and with it, a vengeful spirit—James finds that the answers he seeks are more dangerous than he could have imagined. Together, with a group of supernatural sleuths, Beatrix and James race to settle the ghost’s unrest before it strikes— or else they might not make it out of the haunted manor alive.
New York Times bestselling author Rachel Hawkins, along with Ash Parsons and Vicky Alvear Shecter, weaves darkness, death, and a hint of desire into this suspenseful mystery for fans of Sherlock Holmes and Crimson Peak.
