4.5 stars, rounded up!

I won this book in a Good-reads giveaway, but before I read this, I bought and read the first book in the series. I'm glad I did! Although this book could certainly be a stand-alone, I love the feel of jumping into a book with familiar characters, and getting to see how they "grow". In this case, father and son (Roy and Steven), team up with their unique paranormal powers to help an old friend of Roy's. Their hotel is being besieged by a series of mysterious, gruesome death
This book grabbed me almost from the start. The author has a clear style of writing that is easy to read but still leaves you with a vivid picture of places and events happening in the book. The characters are likeable and the plot is riveting enough to keep you entertained from start to finish. its a perfect horror read without an overabundance of gore. Roy and Stevens journey to get to know each other better is as compelling as the their journey to discover and solve the problems plaguing the ...more

From the Description:

Mason Manor, tucked away in the forests of Oregon – historic, beautiful, and completely haunted. The estate, built in 1850, is now a bed and breakfast run by Pete and Sarah. Once a wonderful place to stay, now it’s not so great – guests don’t survive the night, and are found the next morning in bed, in a pool of blood. Pete and Sarah turn to an old friend, Roy, who has “the gift,” but are they too late to stop whatever malevolent force is prowling the halls at night?

About The Story:
Roy has been requested by an old sch
This is the second book in the River series. Mason Manor is located in the forest hills of Oregon. Pete and his daughter Sarah run a Bed and Breakfast there. This was once a great place to stay but not anymore. It seems that Mason Manor is haunted by ghosts. Pete turns to his old classmate Roy for help. Sarah does not believe in ghosts! Roy and his son Steven decide to help Pete and Sarah out. Roy and Steven will need help from others to get to the bottom of this. I have enjoyed the River series ...more
Roy and his son/trainee Steven are called out to investigate ghostly paranormal occurrences at historic Mason Manor. The manor is now owned by Roy's long time friend, Pete, and Pete's daughter, Sarah.

While this is part of a series, it is entirely possible to be read as a stand alone book.

The narrative is crisp, flows well, and is laced with humor in parts.

Clever dialogue allows insight into characters and their motivations.

The characters are authentic to life and not all are likable or entirely

Past, Present & Future

Roy and his son Steven are invited by a old friend named Pete to Mason Manor, an old mansion run as a bed and breakfast now with his daughter, Sarah. It seems that there have been several unexplainable deaths and guests have stopped coming. There is talk of ghosts and other paranormal phenomena.

Roy and Steven come from a long line of paranormal sensitives. They are able to jump into a "river" which allows them to interact with ghosts. They will need it to battle a horse
This book was not at all what I thought when I bought it. It was even better than what I expected. I also had no idea it was a second book in a series of 6. I think that makes it a good book, I never felt lost not having read the first book. I never felt like there was back story I needed to have to understand what was going on. You could read this book as a stand alone and truly enjoy it. I on the other hand now feel compelled to read book 1 before doing anything else.

I was so surprised by this book. It was great. I laughed a lot and there was always something to look forward. The characters were fantastic. I will try to catch up on the previous books, and look forward to those in the future. The story centers around a father and son ghost hunting team. sounds strange but believe me it could be real. If you want a lift with an unusual read, get A Haunting In Oregon. Thanks Goodreads for this opportunity.

I think this was a fun book. Light reading and kept my interest, but it was not one of those reads that you cannot wait to get back to. There are 2 more books in the series, I might read them.

This was a great read!I loved the thriller,suspense & horror themes!It was a hard to put down book!
Stu Harris
Loved it! Didn't realize this was book 2 in a series. Can't wait to read the others!
Michael Richan's A Haunting in Oregon is what it is -- it doesn't raise the bar, but it isn't something other than what it looks like. Don't worry; I'm going to explain further what I mean.

One impression that I allude to above is that this novel represents the very opposite of literary fiction. It's just a story, and there isn't anything wrong with that per se. I found the plot in and of itself pretty amusing. That said, the text consists exclusively of plot action and character dialogue. There
The writing was a bit simple but it wasn't to awful.Was a fun and easy read.
Not what I thought it was did not like it. So not my cup of tea.
