According to the local legend, the Officers' Mess was haunted by the ghost of a heartbroken young woman. Some very sound-minded people refused to go into the Mess alone at night while others swore they heard noises or saw lights coming on and off when the building was deserted.

Whoever thinks that counting votes is a simple or easy as 1, 2, 3 has never worked an election. I enjoyed the behind the scene and the sudden twists and turns. Well done!
Misguided Honor by J.S. Marlo
" The historical setting really intrigues me. The author does a wonderful job painting the scene for that era. Becca is now trapped there. The mystery of finding out about the ghost’s family and tragedy is entertaining.

The characters were entertaining and well-developed. I love the plot and how the subplots intertwined with the main one. I had some of them figured out, but a few took me for a wild ride. I love unexpected twists and turns!
