    This was unlike any ghost story I've ever read, and I loved it! Initially I found Bodhi, one of the main characters really... annoying probably isn't the right word. And the blog posts were sort of irritating. But then as layers were peeled away it all just went together so well. And I liked Bodhi at the end after watching the interaction between him and his wife, Bailey (the other main character). I kind of guessed who the "baddie" was pretty much off the bat.

The story touched on some super sensitive topics as well, and did this with heart and honesty and I even cried at one point. Ultimately it was a heart warming ghost story. The scares aren't there but it is still a super page turner.

    The story was good, great actually. Why 2 stars? The ending was horrible and really irritating. After the first 2 books the end totally blew it.

    What a slog. When I got to around 80% I just started quickly scanning through the pages. I so didn't care by that time and just wanted it to be over! Way too long, and turning boring. Sorry. The extra star is because this person actually wrote a book and kudos for that (and some parts were okay), something I could never do. However, I won't be reading anything else. And the ending was so ridiculous. I love ghost stories, but this was a disappointment. (As an aside, the writer needs a good editor What a slog.

    Okay, so this book really had me in the feels. I was nervous, I was excited, I was grossed out, and I was feelin warm and fuzzy inside. Out of the three, this one was definitely the least believable. I'm not a huge fan of (view spoiler)[ghosts materializing to be very life like and killing off the person who wronged them. I don't like the fact that they were just BOOM people again and threw Ethan from a cliff. (hide spoiler)] It is just to far fetched to me. But I can forgive that in the story, Okay, so this book really had me in the feels. I was nervous, I was excited, I was grossed out, and I was feelin warm and fuzzy inside.

I don't like the fact that they were just BOOM people again and threw Ethan from a cliff. (hide spoiler)] It is just to far fetched to me. But I can forgive that in the story, and enjoy the ending. I also didn't feel much closure, like the town just found out about the truth, and basically wiped all memory of the person who killed the kids away. I like the fact they shunned everything about the killer, and took away all of their legacy but it just didn't seem really closed. There was no part where the whole town found out and were shocked, angry, and mourned. The author just rushed it in the end, everyone found out the truth, there was a story published in the local journal, and they all lived happily ever after. I'm not a huge fan of happily ever after's. I did think Winn & the new baby girl was a cute touch. I guess this one was just very simple, and wrapped everything up, so no real mystery here. There was only one gruesome part in this one that I found utterly disturbing. The bags. The garbage bags. (view spoiler)[The garbage bags in the crawl space, full of Caroline & Patrick's decomposing bodies. The fact that the liquid from their bodies was encased in plastic, so everything was right there in a huge disgusting mess. I also thought it was utterly disgusting when a bag ripped open and Bailey could smell the stench of the bodies. (hide spoiler)] SO, so, so gross. So yeah overall, the trilogy (which really felt like a book split into three parts) was interesting. Parts were a bit cliché but I'm happy I read it, and happy that everything turned out well.

    Great ending The last book in series was creative and Ethan Powell got what he deserved. I really liked Patrick's ghost and realizing that he was Milo all along made so much sense.

    I picked up The Haunting of Winchester Mansion through BookBub and I'm really glad I clicked on it. I tend to read more ghost stories and paranormal books in October, and I was in the mood for a haunted house-style book. This one didn't disappoint, but it's not your typical haunted house tale.

I tend to read more ghost stories and paranormal books in October, and I was in the mood for a haunted house-style book. This one didn't disappoint, but it's not your typical haunted house tale. It's a contemporary story focused on a married couple with a tragedy in their past and the ghosts in the house they purchase as part of their real estate flipping business. When Bailey and Bodhi purchase the Winchester Mansion in the idyllic town of Black Bay, they quickly find themselves involved in more than just renovations. Strange things begin to happen almost immediately--from missing keys to mysterious sounds. As the tale unravels, we learn the family that once owned the home tragically died in a boating accident. This is a modern twist on a classic ghost story/murder mystery. There's plenty of HGTV-ish scenes with the house flipping combined with the sometimes violent outburst of the ghosts. The mystery aspect wasn't difficult to figure out, I had a good idea on who the murderer was pretty early on but I didn't lose interest. I enjoyed reading out it all played out and felt the resolution satisfying. It's the first book by Alexandria Clarke I've read, and I overall I enjoyed the writing. I'd read another.

    Excellent Read Excellent quick read! Figured out the person of interest 3/4 through but the amazing writing kept me turning pages to find out more! Thought I knew more than I actually did which kept me turning pages to see if my theory was correct and for the record what I thought I knew I actually didn’t. Ending was exactly what I hoped it would be and more!! If you enjoy paranormal, suspense, love and loyalty this is the perfect book!

    Rather fun if its your type of book Enjoyed this one. Sometimes one just wants to have a "let's get away from reality" book that is a totally different than the usual haunted house books you read from time to time and this is one of them. Had a nice relaxing fun read that actually held my interest from start to finish. Recommended Rather fun if its your type of book Enjoyed this one.

    So many times I caught myself holding my breath!!! A GREAT mystery with a well planned story about life!! Two married house flippers, Bohdi and Bailey find themselves in a revolving project of the Winchester mansion. They have some guests.......

    Despite the author feeling the need to repeat parts of what had happened previously (as if you might forget!), as far as a ghost story goes this one isn't half bad. A bit slow at times (brooding too much on the relationship between Bailey and Bhodi) but definitely worth a read Despite the author feeling the need to repeat parts of what had happened previously (as if you might forget!), as far as a ghost story goes this one isn't half bad.

    I really love these ghost stories! Well written...scary but not too...just fun reading! Ghost stories are always sad at some level, but Alexandria brings hope right along with the tale! Thanks!

    Great story I've read many a ghost story, but this one was by far one of my favorites. The characters are real, flaws and all. There was a lot more going on than just a ghost story. I'm looking forward to reading another of Ms. Clarke's "Haunting" books.I highly recommend it! Great story I've read many a ghost story, but this one was by far one of my favorites.

    Refreshing New Viewpoint! It isn't often that a story form as venerable as the Haunted House is told with a refreshing point of view. Nothing Victorian here! Not a breath of Goth to be found! Still, a page turner that keeps your charging cord within easy reach. Enjoy! Refreshing New Viewpoint!

    I had to stop reading after the first non-blog post sentence: “I attached a photo of Bodhi and I posing proudly in front of the completed house.” If both the author and the editor don’t understand that should be “a photo of Bodhi and me,” I do not want to subject myself to the rest of it.

    A couple with problems, ghosts after revenge and a sociopathic murderer that all the town likes and they have to bring him down. A good recipe for a story.

    Story line not strong Movie style ending and events. Could have been better, if it is more realistic. Battery charging horrible, opening doors for pat and Caroline ...
