“You honestly believe what Charlotte has told you?”

This was a thought provoking short story about a girl whose cousin is forced to sleep in a room that she is afraid of for some reason. But why doesn’t Charlotte want to sleep in the room? What really happens to her in there overnight? And can her cousin Justine help her in some way?

This is the second book by this author that I have read and both have been short (only 14 pages) but not sweet in any way, shape or form! She manages to pack in so much in a very short but complete story that leaves the reader amazed and intrigued.

This novella features Justine sharing the story of what happened when her cousin came to stay. It is compelling reading and the ending has a distinct twist that you certainly don't expect. If you enjoy mysteries and thrillers this is a great story to r

Haunting and Thought-provoking

I was gifted a digital copy of The Hanging of Cousin Charlotte in return for my honest review.

The Hanging of Cousin Charlotte may be short, but it is so very good. The story draws the reader in from the very first page. It is a haunting tale about the unexplainable. Something is torturing Cousin Charlotte in her small bedroom at the same time and date each month. Despite Charlotte's pleas for help, her Uncle openly refuses to believe her often confining her to sleep

This newest book by Talia Haven is another quick read that leaves the reader in awe of the impact so few words can have while telling a compelling story. I was left pondering the meaning and had a 'what just happened?' kind of reaction. I found myself sitting for bit when I finished the book, just thinking about what I read and absorbing it all.

Charlotte doesn't like sleeping in her room, but only on one particular night each month.

This is the second short story that I have read by Talia Haven and I am becoming such a big fan of hers. I don't know how someone can pack so much into such short stories and have them be so good. This is really short, it only took me about twenty minutes to get through it. Which means this will be a short review because I'm not going to be the bad guy that spoils this amazing read.

I received this book to give an honest review.

This is a decent ghost story. So to be accepted into this group Justine has to tell a story, so she decides to tell the story of what happened to her cousin Charlotte and why she doesn't like to sleep in her own room. This story is quite short and a lot if packed into it, though I was a bit confused towards the end where all the people listened to the thump and dragging, I think I got it once I sat and thought

A very well-written ghost story that takes very little time to read, but will leave you thinking about it for quite some time to come. The ending, as is true with other stories by this author, contains a surprise that you most likely won't have seen coming. This would be a good story to share at a preteen/teen Halloween party.

Readers will immediately be engrossed in this spooky story. At just fourteen pages, this is an unbelievably detailed and memorable story. It needs a good sweep from the editing broom (2 stars for that), but it's too good to skip. Full review coming on HALLOWEEN on Hall Ways blog
