New blog series: Books I love and read again

Uncategorized Add comments

Since it’s summer and everyone is looking for a really good book to take on vacation with them (or enjoy on a staycation at home), I thought I’d do a weekly post on books that I’ve read and loved so much that I’ve read them multiple times. I’ve got to have some *serious* love for a book to do that. There’s too many books out there and too little time to read them. For me to go back and re-read a book is saying a lot.

That being said, we all have different tastes, and the same book won’t blow everyone’s socks off or skirt up. These books are the ones that did both for me. I’ll try to do these posts on Mondays, but I was swamped on Monday, so I’m just now getting to it.

This week’s book is The Supernaturals by David Golemon, available in ebook and paper.

I normally don’t read haunted house books, but this one blew me away. AND, on October 17, the sequel comes out: In the Still of the Night, also available in ebook and paperI’ve been hoping for years that Golemon would do another Supernaturals book, and I danged near squeed when I saw it.

Here’s the jacket copy:

Named One of Riffle’s Ten Best Haunted House Books of All Time

Built at the turn of the twentieth century by one of the richest and most powerful men in the world tucked away in the pristine Pocono Mountains, Summer Place, a retreat for the rich and famous, seems the very essence of charm and beauty, “a scene borrowed from a wondrous fairytale of gingerbread houses, bright forests, and glowing, sunny meadows.”

But behind the yellow and white trimmed exterior lurks an evil, waiting to devour the unwary…

Seven years ago, Professor Gabriel Kennedy’s investigation into paranormal activity at Summer Place ended in tragedy, and destroyed his career. Now, Kelly Delaphoy, the ambitious producer of a top-rated ghost-hunting television series, is determined to make Summer Place the centerpiece of an epic live broadcast on Halloween night. To ensure success, she needs help from the one man who has come face-to-face with the evil that dwells in Summer Place, a man still haunted by the ghosts of his own failure. Disgraced and alienated from the academic community, Kennedy wants nothing to do with the event. But Summer Place has other plans…

As Summer Place grows stronger, Kennedy, along with the paranormal ghost hunting team, The Supernaturals, sets out to confront…and if possible, destroy…the evil presence dwelling there.

Happy reading!
