The End of Temperance Dare by Wendy Webb
The first few chapters of this book were really good, then the book came to a lull it began to drag through until about 1/2 way through then it really go to the reason I chose this book, the ghosts. The last half of the book was really good and creepy. The part that began to drag was over run with description that was a bit boring to me, and really had nothing to do with the story. When a thought takes 3 pages I get bored. But like I said once it got to about the half way point I couldn't put it down. There were a few surprises along the way, a lot of mystery, and yep ghosts and a demon as well. The book really is worth the read.
Ex Crime reporter Eleanor Harper has come to Cliffside Manor as the New director. Cliffside was built as a TB Sanatorium and then turned into a retreat for arts. Shortly after her arrival the previous director and owner of Cliffside is found dead in her room after committing suicide. Now it is up to Eleanor to welcome the new group of Fellows to the manor and to carry on the work of the Dare family. As she goes to bed that night she finds a very cryptic and threatening letter from the old director under her blankets. Telling her her nightmare has just begun and that there is a puzzle she must solve. Strange things start happening as well as a long standing feeling of dread. As soon as the 5 fellows show up things really get creepy. Can Eleanor save the fellows and herself from the ghosts of Cliffside Manor and solve the puzzle?
I received this book from the Author or Publisher via Netgalley.com to read and review.
