Review: The Haunting Of Josie by Kay Hooper

I adored this one! It has just a touch of paranormal but not enough to call it a "paranormal romance." Let's call it "old school" LOL! I also love that it was a "sweet" story. There isn't much in the way of explicit scenes between the two main characters so it was a refreshing story. I thought the characters were great...including the cat! The cover makes it appear to be a scary story but it really isn't. It reminded me of a story like Jennifer Crusie's Maybe This Time.

Now it is an older book that was originally pubbed in 1994 and re-issued in 2008 so you might have to look around a little bit if you want it. I enjoyed it so much that I ordered another of Kay Hooper's books called Haunting Rachel. I think it'll be good!

About The Book:
(From Amazon)

Before writing such New York Times bestselling thrillers as Blood Dreams and Sleeping with Fear, Kay Hooper made her mark with novels uniquely blending romance and suspense. In this new edition of The Haunting of Josie, Hooper brings together the themes that have remained at the heart of all her work—passion, danger, and a touch of the paranormal—in this classic story of a woman haunted by the past and tempted by a man too irresistible to trust.…

Josie Douglas came to the isolated country cottage with her research, a good alibi, and a gun. She hoped that she’d have enough time to unravel the facts behind the tragedy that years before shattered her life. Instead she found herself in a house haunted by its own dark history. A series of strange coincidences, a ghostly visitor, and a mysterious brass key provide Josie with tantalizing clues to a mystery that keeps her guessing at every turn. As does Marc Westbrook—a landlord who embodies the meaning of the term drop-dead gorgeous. Soon she’ll have to trust him with the secret that drove her into seclusion—a secret that has already cost one man she loved his life.
