Laying Ghosts by Virginia King : Book Review

This is a prequel book to the other three Selkie Moon mysteries by Virginia King. Even the protagonist’s name tells a story. Spooky text messages and memories of an uncomfortable (to say the least) house party. This horrific scenario got my mind racing, I was reminded of a film, Mike Leigh’s Naked . Not the same storyline, but made me think of it. The tease of folklore makes you think that there is more to this story… and there is! The next book in the series… In this short prequel, Virginia King’s writing style and plot thickening skills provides her readers with trust that it’s worth finding out what happens next.

Page-turner-ability rating 5/5

Three word review: Compelled to continue

Author: samanthahenthornfindstherightwords

Welcome! Thanks for visiting my author blog. I write every day, I read every day, so we most likely have lots in common! I currently have seven books available on Amazon '1962', 'Piccalilly' 'Quirky Tales to Make Your Day' and the Curmudgeon Avenue series. I live near Manchester UK with my fabulous husband and wonderful, gorgeous grownup daughter, two cats and one dog. I write three types of blog; 1) Fiction written by myself and accompanied by one of my suitable photos or sketches. 2) Ramblings and amusing observations on life. I do not tend to write about anything serious (but admire those that do). 3) NEW! Book reviews. Although my priority is completing my next novel, if I like something I will share it. If I don't have anything nice to say, however, I won't say anything at all. Please see 'contacts' on menu. Sharing is caring, and so is reciprocation!
