Happy Wednesday all (can you believe we are almost through the first week of the new year?), and welcome to a new spooky Waiting on Wednesday! Today I am eagerly awaiting: The Haunting of Beatrix Greene!
I just love ghost stories and I love it when it all takes place in a very haunted mansion. Sign me up! Add to that that this takes place in Victorian England, some of my favourite books have taken place then. This book sounds delightful and I also love that, going by the blurb, we get both Beatrix her POV and see what her true gift is but also get James his POV. I am curious about the secrets and who or what the vengeful spirit is. This just sounds SO GOOD! Eep! I hope I can read it soon because I am in the mood for mystery and ghosts!
Beatrix Greene has made a name for herself in Victorian England as a reputable spiritual medium, but she’s a fraud: even she knows ghosts aren’t real. But when she’s offered a lucrative job by James Walker—a scientist notorious for discrediting pretenders like her—Beatrix takes the risk of a lifetime. If her séance at the infamously haunted Ashbury Manor fools him, she will finally have true financial freedom. If she fails, her secret will become her public shame.
But James has his own dark secrets, and he believes only a true medium can put them to rest. When Beatrix’s séance awakens her real gift—and with it, a vengeful spirit—James finds that the answers he seeks are more dangerous than he could have imagined. Together, with a group of supernatural sleuths, Beatrix and James race to settle the ghost’s unrest before it strikes— or else they might not make it out of the haunted manor alive.
