Strange but Interesting Mix

I have to admit, it took me a while to get into this one. The characters seemed to me to be overly flawed, but as the story went on you could see why they were depicted in this way. Despite this, I found it hard to relate to the main...

Funny and Spooky!

Whipped through this one as it's a really chatty, easy read. After a while it's like listening to your best friend telling you a story. The plot itself is different to anything I've read before. I loved the curtain-twitching tips, and each one is relevant to what's going on that...

A good read but not brilliant.

This one took a while to get into. I didn't warm much to Grace. She didn't seem to have much of a sense of humour beyond sarcasm, but then, I guess, there was lots of serious stuff going on. Sam was a better character, and the writing was really good...
