“Georgette Shapley died outside this house. Her ghost has spent the past century trying to get back inside so she can be reunited with her child.” James Spence doesn't believe in ghosts, so he has no worries about going with his girlfriend Rachel to visit an old, abandoned country home. Rachel, meanwhile, is convinced that a weekend at Shapley Hall will make James change his mind. After all, she knows from bitter experience that the the house is haunted by a woman who once died in the most horrific manner possible, and who now waits to be reunited with her long-lost child. As the weekend continues, however, James starts to realize that maybe ghosts are the least of his problems. Rachel's behavior is becoming increasingly erratic, and it soon becomes clear that she'll stop at nothing to fulfill a promise she once made to a dead woman. Did Rachel imagine a terrifying experience during her childhood, or are the hallways of Shapley Hall really haunted by a terrifying, vengeful creature? The Ghost of Shapley Hall is a horror novella about two people who venture into a dark, abandoned house, and about the echo of a terrible crime that still haunts the Shapley family to this day.
Five Boundless Stars
This book was definitely a thrill ride from the very beginning. James and Rachel go visit her abandoned family home, Shapley Hall. While Rachel leads him there for a weekend away, he soon finds that the house and Rachel are not all they seem to be. As the tale unfolds he learns the truth and the truth is haunting. This book was really really good. I have never red Amy Cross, but I am glad that I found her book. This book was a great ride. It was full of action, suspense, and yes....ghosts! This story unfolded and I found myself shocked many times. From Rachel's past to the ending with James, I was sucked in. Honestly, I was sucked in on page one, but the book kept getting better. I could not put it down and read it in one sitting. It definitely had that fear factor that you look for in a ghost story. I am hooked on Amy Cross and I look forward to reading more from such an awesome author.
