's review

really liked it
bookshelves: kindle-drc, gothic-tone, horror

Just finished and will write more of a review later. Do know this is not only spooky as hell but could also be titled "Fifty Shades of a Grey Ghost."

Update 1/24/19: I don't have much more to add except this spooky gothic ghost story with an excellent atmospheric setting on a Scottish isle will keep you on the edge of your couch and may also make you blush a little. One twist was fairly easy to figure out but a couple of others may surprise you. And the ending will have you saying "What just happened??"

The author's alter ego is S. J. Parris, so fans of her historical novels may enjoy this contemporary gothic. If readers don't mind the steamy scenes, I recommend it for those who like Shirley Jackson's The Haunting of Hill House and Wendy Webb's gothic ghost stories.

Thanks to W. W. Norton for the advance reading copy.

Jessica Woodbury Okay, maybe your title is a bit fancier than mine, I just went straight to "Sex Ghost."
