3.5 out of 5 licks
One reunion. One ghost. One night that will change everything…
From her earliest memories, Ashley Pearce has been drawn to Ruby Hill Lunatic Asylum, and she’s not the only one. Decades after the abandoned hospital ended its institutional reign of torture and neglect, something lurks in the shadows. Since she’s a paranormal investigator, it’s Ashley’s job to find out what.
Crime scene expert Corbin Malone doesn’t believe in ghosts. A born skeptic, he has no interest in entertaining the hype surrounding the mysterious deaths at Ruby Hill, but he won’t turn his back while more women die. He agrees to an overnight investigation, never expecting his first encounter would be with the woman he pushed away a year ago. But when he discovers Ashley is a target, he learns his greatest fear isn’t living with his own demons, but losing her for good.
This was a quick read with two of my favorite things, scary stories and romance.
I enjoyed this story one day on my lunch hour. For me I think it is hard to convey a story in so few words, but the author did a good job of setting the feel of the story. I liked the back story and anything set in an abandoned asylum automatically gets me on edge. I liked the two main characters and would have liked to get to know them better…again short story you cannot have everything you want.
Not American Horror Story, but if you want a quick shot to get your blood pumping; then take a break and enjoy this story!
