This was an unusual ghost story, and it started slowly, but in the end I quite enjoyed it as a light, fluffy, fun read.

The beginning of this felt a bit choppy and disjointed, but it settled down around page 50 and found its flow.

This is kind of hard to describe though. There's definitely a ghost/haunted house component, but there's also some romance, some gothic, some historical and just a touch of cozy elements here. What brings is all together is the character of Karo. She is a bit neurotic, b

If it wasn't the fun & enthusiastic communication between the 2 characters, I don't think I would have been able to finish this book. So to be honest with myself this is more of a 2.5 rather than a 3 in my way of thinking.
