Can't put this book down.

I'm currently reading a book by Rosie Goodwin called 'Whispers'

It's a ghost story - it's so good I just can't put it down.
If you haven't read any of her books I can recommend them. This is the first ghost story she's written - it's brilliant as are all her other stories.

Glad you're enjoying it, but not sure that a ghost story appeals to me.

I'm glad you're enjoying it Carol, women make terrific ghost story writers, look at what Mary Shelley wrote, they're still making films about Frankensteins monster today.

Re: Can't put this book down.

Just Googled it Carol, as I love a book I can engrossed in. It's had excellent reviews on Amazon, saying exactly what you did, about not being able to put it down.

I'll order it from my library maybe.

Carol it's great when you can get engrossed in a book. I'm glad you're enjoying it. I must make a note of that book. Thanks for telling us about it.

Re: Can't put this book down.

I don't usually go for ghost stories but since I discovered Rosie Goodwin I make an effort to read all her books.
At first I didn't think I was going to like this one as much as her others but after about 50 pages, the present comes together with the past and a sad story unfolds - it's riveting!

It sounds like a good read Carol unfortunately I get little time to read these days but will put it on my list.

I hope you enjoy it as much as I am doing ruthio.
As I said in my OP, it's a bit slow at first so bear with it. Once the past & present come together it's absolutely riveting...
