#ReviewShare #YA #Paranormal - Haunted by @EileenMaksym

HauntedHaunted by Eileen Maksym
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

There is something about ghost stories that appeals to me greatly, the fantastic mixture of suspense and the unknown creates a compelling situation where you simply daren’t stop reading. I’m happy to report that this book delivered healthy amounts of the above elements. We follow three friends whose passion for ghosts lands them in danger when they decide to investigate a local house.

The plot felt like a breathless ride to me and the romantic element that has been added only increased my enjoyment, it felt like there was more at stake simply because of the extra emotions involved. In my opinion the author deserves great credit for the creation of the three main characters, as much as I liked them individually their real appeal came from their group friendship.

It was believable and I found myself greatly invested in their collective journey. There are certainly enough twists and turns to keep even the most seasoned of readers on their toes which is always a massive positive, after all, when you are confronted with unexpected outcomes in the plot the story becomes all the more exciting.

Overall I can draw a lot of positives from reading this book. I thoroughly enjoyed it and will be keeping my eye out for further work from Eileen Maksym.
