Many Thanks to Net Galley, Wild Rose Press and the author for a chance to read and review this book. All opinions are expressed voluntarily.

Wendy Webb is an established author in the paranormal genre with excellent spooky stories set around huge mansions or old haunted houses like The Vanishing, Daughters Of The Lake etc. As a fan of this genre, I have read almost all the works published by the author.

Widow’s Walk is a book in the same genre, the cover image of the book prominently displaying W

Y'ALL. THIS IS NOT A BOOK BY THE AUTHOR I CONSIDER THE "REAL" WENDY WEBB. (Who has written Daughters of the Lake, The Fate of Mercy Alban, etc.)

I heard from her confirming this, and her publisher is looking into things.

Here is an edited version of the first review I posted.

Was unfortunately quite disappointed with the way things went.

Overall, it was as if the "darkness" (of varying sorts) was very forced, unlike how the supernatural seemed appropriate and intrinsic to [Webb's] other works that I

Warning to fans of Wendy Webb (who writes excellent literary ghost stories), Widow’s Walk, listed on Amazon among her books, is not by her. I’ve read all of Webb’s books, got them all at the library, wondered why this new one wasn’t in any library I use, so I bought it for my Kindle. It was OK as ghost stories go - it’s not V.C. Andrews - but neither is it as good as Webb’s previous books. I went to her Facebook page and found out why. She didn’t write it. Someone else with the same name wrote i ...more

*EDIT: This is not the SAME Wendy Webb I know and love! This is NOT the Wendy Webb who wrote Daughters of the Lake, The Vanishing, etc. In my opinion, this person is riding on the coattails of a well loved author and selling books under false pretenses!! I’m changing my review from 2 down to 1 star, and I’ll be contacting Amazon for a refund!! 😡😡😡😡

I finished this a couple of days ago and decided to give myself time to compose my thoughts because I thought my immediate response was too harsh. How

I am a fan of Supernatural Mysteries and Wendy Webb is one of my favorite authors. This book was no exception. The story starts with Annie Cameron, her son Charlie and her mother-in-law coming to live at Manchester House while their home is being renovated, or so they think, after some not so good news from her husband, it appears that Annie and her family will be having a longer stay. With an autistic son, a mother-in-law suffering from dementia and.a bad marriage, well not the best time to mov ...more

Annie brings her son and mother-in-law to Mico Island to stay while their house is being renovated, expecting her husband to join them for weekends. Instead, she get divorce papers. The house she has rented for her family has a dark history of death and it winds its way into Annie, putting everyone in danger.

I had high hopes for this book and it started well. The characters were interesting and the setting was appealing. But, Webb introduces too many characters and tri

I love Wendy Webb and I have bought all her novels but this is my least favourite. Annie, her mother in law and her son Charlie move to The Manchester House on Mico Island, a house with a sinister past. Making friends with Sibel and Winston Mann, seems like escape from her claustrophobic life, but Annie soon begins to feel possessed by the old house, something Sybil understands only too well. Who is the woman in black that seems to haunt them? All the wonderful supernatural elements Wendy Webb d ...more

This is not a Wendy Webb novel!!!!!! This is not the same author as the Wendy Webb who wrote Daughters of the Lake, The Fate of Mercy Alban, etc. the person who wrote this book appears to be hoping people will buy this thinking it is the same Wendy Webb. I could not even get past page 10 of this book.

Okay but not great

I’m a huge fan of this author iv loved mostly all of her writing.
This book started out weird for me and I found that 2/3s of the way through I felt bogged down and restless for the book to be over. It just sat in one place going nowhere.
So I skipped through pages to get to the end the book was too long winded for me.
I’m already anxious for her next book!!

Scary & Sad

The story has plenty of spookiness - you might need to store it in the freezer for a bit ;) I had trouble following the story of the bitter delusional ghost. Part of me wanted to feel sorry for her

I feel relieved to find out this book was not written by Wendy Webb who wrote Daughters on the Lake because I was disappointed in this book. It started out with an interesting premise and it was short in length, but I found this book hard to get through and predictable.

Oh I am so bummed with this book. I thought this book was the same Wendy Webb who wrote "Daughters of the Lake" and the "Vanishing," but upon further research, this is not the same author. I loved the possessed/ghost concept, but there seemed to be too many red herrings to follow.

This book is about Annie Cameron who takes her son Charlie and her mother-in-law to live in Manchester House on Mico Island. She soon learns that her husband wants a divorce and thus she will be living there more long t

Told by her husband that their home is being renovated, Annie Cameron boards a small boat with her autistic son and her husband's dementia-touched mother to be ferried to their temporary rental house on Mico Island. Her husband, however, does not come with them claiming to need to stay behind to oversee construction.

It's a beautiful home that awaits them. Columns and picture windows grace the front of the house. A verandah encircles the entire house and on top, a widow's walk where the wife of

So disappointed. As I was reading, I kept thinking this must be one of her first books because the writing was so poor. Then I went to see its publication date as it dragged on. It’s not the same author! I thought this was one of the books in the same vein as Mercy Alban and Halcyon Crane. I’ll never get those hours back...😔
