Sarah Piper's lonely, threadbare existence changes when her temporary agency sends her to assist a ghost hunter. Alistair Gellis-rich, handsome, scarred by World War I, and obsessed with ghosts- has been summoned to investigate the spirit of nineteen-year-old maid Maddy Clare, who is haunting the barn where she committed suicide. Since Maddy hated men in life, it is Sarah's task to confront her in death. Soon Sarah is caught up in a deperate struggle. For Maddy's ghost is real, she's angry, and she has powers that defy all reason. Can Sarah and Alistair's assistant, the rough, unsettling Matthew Ryder, discover who Maddy was, whereshe came from, and what is driving her desire for vengeance-before she destroys them all?

Rated 3 out of 5 by from I knew.. I knew going in, that this probably would be a quick read and I may not like it. It was very predictable to me. I wanted to like it more then I did. #plumreview

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Addicting I'm so happy that I stumbled upon this gem in the bargain section. It has my three favourite genres mashed into one; historical fiction, romance and horror. Sarah, Matthew and Alistair were very likeable characters and well written. This novel is a fast paced novel that can easily be finished in a day.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Engrossing ghost story Sarah Piper accepts a job as a temporary secretary to a very fascinating young man who claims to be a ghost hunter. However when they arrive at the supposedly haunted house, it is Sarah who proves to be a medium for a very angry spirit called Maddy Clare. When another young man, Matthew, joins their search for truth, Sarah finds she must fight against a vengeful ghost and her attraction to Matthew. This gothic love story is a wonderful supernatural tale of suspense that reminds me of Velda Johnston or Norah Lofts.
