Imagine moving into a house that is haunted. This is what happens to Medium Camilla Armstrong when she is led to the Rosehill country estate after communicating with her deceased Grandmother. The house is an old Georgian manor that is in need of some care and attention and the life putting back into it.

When Camilla first visits the house, she senses tranquillity and a gentle atmosphere and she feels an aura of warm colours around its walls. For her it is the missing piece of the jigsaw, the pie

I had just finished reading a chick lit book which had a slight paranormal feel to it which is not something I usually go out of my way to read ( I am terrible and getting stuck in my comfortable genres!) and yet I really enjoyed that kind of style to the storyline so I decided to come out of my comfort zone a little further and read a much deeper paranormal suspense book.

Our main character is Camilla, who is a medium. Camilla didn't come across as the eccentric character I was expecting she fel

Discovery at Rosehill is a book by Kathryn Brown about a Medium, Camilla who is drawn to Rosehill County Estate by her deceased Grandma. The house is in desperate need of saving not only from tumbling down before her very eyes but also it would seem from the visitors inside.

Camilla has a big task ahead of her with not only the renovation of the estate but also fitting into the Country life. A Medium is not a welcome addition to the small village especially when she strikes up a friendship with t

I don't normally read things about psychics/mediums even though I'm huge into the paranormal, cryptozoology and things like that and I don't really read romance (as a genre at least, I don't really mind if it's woven into a story as long as it's not the main aspect). My main source of reading enjoyment has always been fantasy and YA adult books. The book was a little slow for me to get into but I think that just had a lot to do with getting used to the genre, then when the author introduced the ...more

Did Camilla choose Rosehill or did Rosehill choose Camilla? Medium Camilla Armstrong falls in love with the charm of the Rosehill Estate, but the house is full of memories and spirits that linger on. As the story unfolds, despite the fact that Camilla is an experienced medium, even she is puzzled by the information the house and its occupants give up little by little. She is being led down a pathway of discovery and all she can do is follow and see where it leads. Love unexpectedly beckons as sh ...more

This is the first paranormal romance book that I've read and I was amazed how hooked I became; as soon as I started reading it I didn't want to stop reading.

Kathryn Brown has done a wonderful job, creating believable characters and an interesting romantic plot as well as a truly fascinating paranormal story.

I hope to read more by this author as I enjoyed her writing style.

Interesting read

The story is well written, it keeps your interest. The subject of paranormal versus the beliefs of organized religion adds another aspect to the story. I enjoyed reading it.

I originally started this blog in response to becoming an Associate Reader for Love A Happy Ending and having chosen my authors duly read and reviewed their books. Kathryn Brown is an Associate Author and I hadn't initially chosen to read her book because I wasn't sure about the paranormal side of Discovery at Rosehill. Anything like that and I usually run a mile, however, I got to know Kathryn and decided I should broaden my reading, so I offered to read her book.

Initially, I thought romance an

I read Discovery at Rosehill in just a few sittings – and well into the night – as I couldn’t bear to not know what was going to happen next! And during those hours reading, I grew quite fond of Camilla Armstrong, the main protagonist.

The story opens as her deceased grandmother leads her to Rosehill – a rundown Georgian manor house. And where most of us would probably find the house entirely empty, Camilla, a medium, senses the spirits of a variety of visitors to the house and is able to commun

Camila is a medium who is drawn to Rosehill Country Estate by her deceased Grandmother. The house needs a lot of work done to it both on the surface and the ghostly goings on. Camila finds it difficult to fit in with the country life style and befriends the local Vicar, whom is called Marcus, which develops into being a little more than just friends. Does he believe in what she does? Can their relationship work? He is a man with a secret of his own.

The characters are believable and the romance t

If you love a good romance, mystery, tragedy, and some supernatural antics, then you'll love Discovery at Rosehill.
I settled down to read, thinking, 'just a few chapters, then I'll pop off to sleep', however, I found the story so easy to fall into, that I continued on into the small wee hours. I became like an invisible observer; watching closely as the plot unfolded.
I cared about, Camilla. I wanted to know what the spirits were trying to tell and would she love who she was meant to love.

Loved it! The vicar with his conflicts of career and believing in the spirit world and the medium who he finds himself attracted to. The centuries old mansion still in restoration plays host to a number of lively characters... most of whom are from the spirit world.

Kathryn spun her tale of spirits and the living into a beguiling read that made me wonder right to when she was ready to reveal the secret at Rosehill, while making me root for the vicar, Marcus, and the medium, Camilla, to get togeth

The book opens with Camille, a medium, setting eyes on the beautiful but run down estate of Rosehill her deceased grandmother has guided her to. She moves into her new home begins renovations. Many visitors show up at Rosehill, both living and dead.

Katherine very cleverly weaves a layered multi-faceted story. This is a story where intrigue and secrets abound. Ghosts pop in and out regularly. A past love and new love collide. Which one wins? Friends are lost and mysteries are solved. This is a r

The book is based around the lead character Camilla, a medium who is drawn towards Rosehill and told to live there by her Grandmother (in spirit). The book throws us into Camilla's life and the many spirits that lingers in the house. By bringing a love interest into the story, Marcus, local vicar the story unfolds giving lots of twists.

Not normally my kind of book but I loved the way that the author made it an easy read, the characters were normal and not way out in any way

I enjoyed this book, but I have to say I enjoyed the sequel Secrets at Rosehill more. Although the story was good the writing style was nowhere near as accomplished as Kathryn Brown's second book. In places the use of vocabulary was a bit odd and I think the proof reader must have been having an off day. Having said that it was still an enjoyable read. 6/10

If you enjoy reading paranormal books, you will love Discovery at Rosehill. I do not normally read these kind of books, but found this very believable.The characters both in our world and the next were very well portrayed. It is more than a love story with a surprising twist at the end.

What a great book! A paranormal love story with a twist. I love a good ghost story!!! Quite creepy in places! I loved it! Loved the Camilla character. So strong as she communicates with spirits in an attempt to unravel the mystery of her connection to Rosehill!
