The Haunting of Dove Cote House has a top shelf creep factor. There are ghosts on almost every page. I am a true fan of the Paranormal genre and Ghosts are my favorite. This book is filled with ghosts. You have the laughing little girl, the mean and nasty old lady, and the very creepy black mass with red eyes.
In the book Cat Fletcher's fathers has passed away and left Dove Cote House to his only daughter. Although Cat grew up in the house a lot of her memories of the house are faded or fogged over. After she grew up and went off to college her parents never let her return to the house.
Now as an adult and owner of Dove Cote she returns to the house. Almost immediately strange things start to occur, she hears laughter and see's shadows. The longer Cat is in the house the more she starts to remember things that went on as she grew up. The old lady would tuck her in at night and lay her clothes out for her in the morning. She has always heard the little girls laughter but never seen her, until now.
She runs into her best friend from childhood Rob. Rob tells her he is now a paranormal investigator. At this point Cat still has no memories of all the happenings in her house. Rob comes to the house and the old lady ghost appears and tells him to get out. After this things really get strange and dangerous. Cat talks to the Father Thomas who is Priest of the local Catholic Church and asks for a house blessing, instead her calls upon a excommunicated Priest and Exorcist, Father James, to lend a hand to Cat and hr ghost problem.
It seems that the ghostly activity as well as demonic activity has been going on in Dove Cote for decades. Cat, Rob, Father Thomas, James and Cat's estranged husband Phil are all pulled into solving the mysteries of Dove Cote house, while trying to stay alive.
I rally enjoyed this story. Rachel Jordan has done an amazing job. I loved how she adds her own personal paranormal experiences to this story. This is Rachel's debut novel. I personally cannot wait to see where she will go in her future novels.
I was given my copy of this book from the Author and as part of a book tour hosted by RABT book tours.
