We all know about the “noises” old houses make, it’s just settling, right? But what if it was something more? Welcome to Kathryn Knight’s GHOST MOON where one woman may discover there may be more to the saying, “If walls could talk…” than meets the eye.

Lark had nowhere to go when she made the temporary move to Cape Cod and the abandoned home she had inherited. Although the rumors of the house’s “haunting” by ghosts may have given her pause, how could it be any worse than the internal ghosts of t

If you're looking for a supernatural mystery mixed with feel-good romance, this standalone ghost story will probably hit the spot.

As the book begins, Lark is moving to a new town and a house she's inherited--after losing her job in New York and catching her fiance in bed with her best friend. (Let me pause here and say the deets on her boyfriend aren't revealed until more than halfway through the book, but the hinting is so heavy-handed, you could figure it out in chapter one.)

Anyway, she knows

I love me a ghost story, I’ll never not love a ghost story. I love stories where really someone who has passed on can’t fully transition because of the unrest due to wanting their story, their truth being discovered. Our main character inherits a house, gets there and it’s haunted. She wants to sale and finds herself piecing together who is haunting the home and why. All this while having a romance with one of her new neighbors.

Ghost Moon by Kathryn Knight is an amazing story that I have read. This is an amazing story written by a brand new author for me to read and I can not wait to read more from this author. I highly recommend this story to everyone who loves reading about mystery, romantic suspense and paranormal romances.

I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.
Rating 4.5/5*

This is a contemporary romance with a ghostly, life threatening twist and a fantastic book to escape into!

After Lark Cavanaugh inherits Holloway House, in Cape Cod, she didn't expect to be visiting it so soon. However, life has conspired against her in New York and she escaped to the old home which has been abandoned for a decade not expecting to have any problems even though she has heard that it is haunted. Talk about things going bump in the night! This is an eerie, haunting stor

Thank you to NetGalley and Backlit PR for allowing me access to read this book! GHOST MOON by Kathryn Knight is based on a haunting and a new romance. I was worried the haunting and romance would read separately but the author intertwined the storylines seamlessly. Lark is fresh off a major heartache and job loss from New York and moves to the recently inherited Holloway House on Cape Cod. Jesse is the town vet and took over the practice from his father that has passed away. Their paths cross wh ...more
Ghost Moon is something different. Though not by ghosts or paranormal. Just different in a way that it tells a story but given that it more mystery and romance than paranormal. The title does not give away much about what this book is about.

We meet Lark as she is driving to the new place that she inherited. When she arrives she sees someone in the front window. Things get even more interesting and enjoyable once she comes goes into the house. Her cat is my favorite. How he reacts is funny. I gue

I haven't read a ghost story in a long time, and I enjoyed this one immensely. This one was fast paced, expertly crafted and edited flawlessly. Loved the world building and description of the house in question.

"The windows along the far wall overlooked the back of the property, and she paused to enjoy the view. It really was peaceful. A low wooden deck stretched out from the kitchen, and beyond that, a gentle hill rolled down to the tree line. The narrow river that marked the property line woun

Kathryn Knight is an author known for her paranormal books. Ghost Moon is her newest release and I cannot even say how excited I was to receive my copy. As soon as it was available, I started reading it. I loved the twists and turns, the paranormal happenings, and of course, the romance all kept me turning pages and looking for the next clue as to who was haunting Lark’s house in Cape Cod.

An old haunted house on Cape Cod got my attention. I am not a big fan of “Romance, Sci Fi nor fantasy but I am okay with ghosts.
Lark Cavanaugh inherits the Holloway House in the town of Truro on Cape Cod. She has lost her job in New York also her fiancé. She has nowhere to go so packs up her cat, Preston and figured this is a good a time as any to check out her inheritance.
Everyone believes Holloway House is haunted. Lark agrees it looks a bit creepy but she doesn’t believe in Ghosts…Hmmmm…

The Genres for this novel are Para-normal, Ghost-Story, Suspense and Mystery, Thriller, and Romance.  The timeline for this story is set in the present and goes back to the past when it pertains to the characters or events.

I don’t often tell my husband the details of a story that I’m reading. This one (and many of the books I read from Kathryn Knight) was an exception. The best part is that he is always attentive when I do describe her stories.

Lark’s first meeting with Jesse invokes hero worship as the town veterinarian saves her ill cat. Still, she’s trying desperately to guard her heart. She believes she has reason to never trust another human being again.

This is my second book by Kathryn Knight and it lived up to how much I loved the first one. Her books are easily a straight through read. The action moves smoothly and every time I set a time limit for reading I didn't want to stop.
Lark is broken after being deceived and betrayed by the two people that meant the most to her so she leaves New York City for awhile to sell the "haunted" house she has inherited. In the charming Cape Cod town she moves to is gorgeous Jesse, the Veteran veterinarian!

I really enjoy a good ghost story, and this is the best one I have read in quite a while. The characters are contemporary, realistic, and sympathetic. I love the descriptions of both the house and the setting. I have never been to Cape Cod, but had no problem picturing the place. The plot is engrossing and eerie, as the two main characters try to find out exactly who is haunting the house and why. Their love story is equally well done. Lark is understandably a bit reluctant to fall in love with ...more

This is a great read. It has all the elements that you are looking for: steamy, spooky, mystery and suspense.
Do you believe in ghosts? Lark didn’t used to. Moving to Cape Cod to escape a bitter break up in New York and settle the estate of a distant relative, dealing with a ghost with a murderous past is not what she had in mind. She was supposed to be in and out. However, the ghost demands her attention. As the hunky, veterinarian next door neighbor, Jesse, helps un

This is a great book. Lark inherited a haunted house from her deceased Aunt and after a bad breakup decides to move into it long enough to fix it up and sell it. While she's definitely a skeptic, she learns pretty darn quick it is definitely haunted. Jesse is the gorgeous neighbor who wants to save her but is also kind of skeptical. He also learns there's been a ghost living next door since before he was born. This is about trying to save Lark from a dangerous ghost while developing a budding ro ...more

3.5 Stars. This is the second book I've read by this author, and I enjoyed it. The plot is suspenseful, riveting, and just plain scary at times. I found the characters of Lark and Jesse to be likeable individually and a great match as a couple. I loved the animals and the role they play. One of the things I like best about this author's books is that they are the perfect length to develop the characters and tell the story without getting bogged down in excessive internal dialogue or unimportant ...more

The book was expertly written to keep you on tenterhooks the whole way through and I thought that the plot was excellent, it was full of romance and heartache to do the right thing and I loved the way that the book was written to bring the characters to life – it all worked brilliantly for me.

As a story within a story unfolds, Lark decides her heart may be able to withstand another try at love, even if it literally may not be able to withstand the assault from a 70 year old ghost.
