Haunted by Lynn Carthage

Moving to my stepfather’s English country mansion sounded so promising. But the Arnaud Manor is neglected and unwelcoming, and I get the feeling it isn’t exactly uninhabited. Something wants to hurt us—especially my litter sister, Tabby.

Okay, so I might be a little sensitive lately. My parents act oblivious to me, my old life is far away in San Francisco, and the gorgeous guy I just met tells me terrible stories about the infamous Madame Arnaud who lived here long ago, and about missing children and vengeful spirits. The kind of stories that are impossible to believe—until you’re living in one of them, fighting to protect everyone you love…~Goodreads

I received this book in return for my honest review from netgalley.

I'm a sucker for a good ghost story and this was a really good one. I must admit I figured out part of it about a quarter of the way through but that didn't affect my enjoyment of the book at all. I absolutely loved the characters. Their interactions felt very true to life and I really cared about them. I especially liked the way she was with her little sister. There were several times it almost brought me to tears.  The sudden tangent with Madam Arnaud was a bit of a surprise but it did bring some interesting characters into the story. I caught myself thinking about it while I was at work so it definitely kept my attention and I plan on buying a copy for my daughter to read. I think this book would be a great choice for YA readers who are into ghosts and mysteries.  It might be a little slow for adult readers but it was a fun read. I give this book 3/5 stars/
