Tour Stop + Review The Dead at Haggard Hall by Marie Treanor

Title: The Dead of Haggard Hall
Author: Marie Treanor
Series: Darke of Night 
Release Date: July 26ht 2016


Spirit possession is easy to remedy. Possession of the heart is another matter.
Darke of Night, Book 1

After vicar’s widow and natural medium Barbara Darke loses her respectable teaching position, she reluctantly agrees to become companion to her former pupil Emily, now the bride of young Sir Arthur Haggard.

Once settled at Haggard Hall, Barbara finds her friend is beset by ghostly voices and unexplained deaths. In a maelstrom of dark spirits and wicked emotions, Barbara battles to lay Emily’s ghosts to rest—both hampered and helped by Arthur’s skeptical cousin Patrick, who provokes and attracts her in equal measure.

It would be a mistake to trust a secretive, guilt-ridden man suspected of driving his wife to suicide, if not outright murdering her. And it could well be lethal to give in to her own desires, confused as they often are with the lusts of the dead. 

But Arthur and Emily are in genuine physical danger, and suspicion is falling closer and closer to Patrick—the man who haunts Barbara’s sensual dreams. The man who stands to inherit Haggard Hall.

Warning: Contains a medium whose body is open season for spirit possession, and a scandal-ridden journalist who only believes what he can see—and touch.

Review by Iza

I'm always down for a Gothic romance. The allure of all the mysteries and supernatural, along with a haunting and broken hero? Yup, sign me up for it, I'm in!

Ms. Treanor took her main characters to the perfect Gothic setting: a haunted castle. Our heroine, Barbara Darke can see ghosts and she's there to help a friend. Someone - or something - is behind a murder that needs to be solved.

Of course not everyone truly believes Barbara can do all that, especially our anti-hero-turned-hero, Patrick - the typical Gothic romance male lead that ends up winning you over.

But he decides to help Barbara and things get more and more complicated. They get more questions instead of answers and things start heating between the two of them. And boy, does it make you fan yourself!

This is, without a doubt, the perfect start to a new series I will be reading; I actually can't wait to dive into book two, see what else happens, what will our characters do.

4.5 stars because I really liked it, I enjoyed it a lot! I want to thank the author for the copy given in exchange for my honest review.

P.S. I loved the ending!
