Review ~ Haunted Raine by R.E. Hargrave
Distracted by the everyday routine of raising children, being a wife, and keeping a home, Lorraine Morrissey let life pass her by. Her wakeup call comes when she realizes that with their children gone, her husband Richard is rarely home, and she’s filling her solitary days with trivial tasks. A crazy idea to save her marriage leads to a summer beach vacation unlike any she’s ever taken; one that involves unknowingly buying a haunted house.
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
This was such a great little story. It was packed with a wide variety of interests. The first that I enjoyed was the not so typical love story. This was about a couple that had been married for over 30 years and were facing distance, a disconnection. Raine really felt it more and wanted to find a way to connect with her husband again since the kids were all out of the house and it was more noticeable. Lorraine decided they would buy a house to flip and spend the time working on it so they could possibly reconnect. But some things are not as simple as one will imagine. The reconnecting … went well; however, the flip, not so much. There were other elements involved that led to Raine finding out some wonderful information about herself.
I would have loved for this to have been longer, only because I enjoyed it so much, but it wasn’t necessary. The whole story was skillfully told in so few words and it was a really good one. I love historicals and this, although not a historical book, had flashes of things that happened a very long time ago. You’ll have to read this to put it all together and I know you all will enjoy it.
This is another great story written by R.E. Hargrave. I’d recommend this to everyone.
