Barbara Michaels, House of Many Shadows - excellent, earned a place on my keeper shelf


House Of Many ShadowsHouse Of Many Shadows by Barbara Michaels
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

This book won keeper status on my bookshelf, beside other Barbara Michaels books I've loved.

This book was a pleasant surprise, after a slow start, things became decidedly spooky after she moves into the country home her elder cousin owns. The house is vacant, but Andy Brenner, a man she knew as a child when growing up, lives in the caretaker's cottage and takes care of the property. But is the house truly vacant. Meg is suffering from hallucinations since she sustained a head injury after being struck by a hit-and-run driver. Her elder cousin Sylvia invites her to move into the house to get peace and fresh air that her doctor recommended.

Meg thinks she may just be crazy, until Andy experiences the visual hallucinations that Meg sees when he touches her. I don't want to say much more, what I have said so far is in the book description. The house holds many secrets and it takes both Andy and Meg to uncover them.

This was an excellent book and the last 100 pages were so absorbing that I couldn't put it down. I highly recommend this to anyone who likes a good mystery with a supernatural twist.
