4.0 out of 5 stars A spook infested romp!, 29 May 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Phantom of the Bathtub (Mass Market Paperback)
After having her reputation ruined by a cad in San Francisco, Miss Viveca Stanhope ups and leaves town and heads all the way South to Savannah. She purchases a house on Hangman's Square, aptly named for it's having been used as a place for public hangings. What she doesn't account for are the spooks and ghosts that are haunting her house, her gardens and her bathtub!

Also she is being constantly harrassed by her neighbour, Maxwell Beecher to sell her the house. The two just rub each other up the wrong way every time they meet, despite their growing attraction. Add to the mix a delightful array of character's from the local busy body 'Queen' Hilda, to the house servants Winnie and Emmett.

The story plods along at a fairly slow pace but it kept me interested enough to keep me turning the pages. Nothing outstanding or unexpected happens although it's a nice story. You might find this book a little tame if you enjoy reading works by Robin Scone or Lori Foster, but there are a few 'warmer' scenes towards the middle and end of the book.

All in all then, this is a fairly decent story with well developed characters. Not your 'Gone With The Wind' but a good romp.
