Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: The Mistletoe Bride and Other Haunting Tales (Kindle Edition)
I adored the Languedoc trilogy but didn't like The Winter Ghosts at all.
I bought this with some hesitation, worried that I wouldn't really like it if it was on a par with Winter Ghosts; I'm sad to say is just wasn't for me at all. It starts off well with The Mistletoe Bride, The House on the Hill, Red Letter Day and The Drowned Village but when I started Why the Yew Tree Lives So Long I became a little tedious for me and I felt it was a chore reading the other stories, rather than an enjoyment.
I limped to the finishing post somewhat reluctantly as I thought it might improve but, to my regret, it didn't.
I thought the whole thing very strange indeed and there was a definite lack of haunting to any of the stories.
If you enjoyed Winter Ghosts then this is for you, if not avoid it.
Sorry Kate, I did try and like it.
