In the small town of Black Bay, a vacant, forgotten house sits atop an overlooking bluff. When Bailey and Bodhi Taylor move in and begin renovations, the house seems perfect. But things move on their own, screams echo from the basement, and Bailey sees a shadowy figure out of the corner of her eye. Is the house haunted? And if it is, what does the ghost want with Bailey?
Great series except for the cliffhangers at the end of each book. If I hadn’t bought the whole series at one time, I wouldn’t have continued reading. I like cliffhangers, don’t get me wrong but this was so abrupt, it was almost as if the author wrote the entire series and just cut it into pieces to make multiple books.
Bailey and Bodhi are house fippers with a popular blog. They move to a tiny town to restore The Winchester Mansion. The previous owners and their 2 children mysteriously died in a boating accident and the house fell into disrepair. They were beloved by the whole town after bringing it back from the brink of bankruptcy, so the town mourned the loss of the family for years. Bailey and Bodhi are welcomed with open arms by the townspeople but when Bailey starts to experience the unusual, she starts to believe maybe there was something more sinister to their deaths than a simple accident.
There are plenty of twists and turns in this series, as well as mystery and emotional strife. The relationship between Bailey and Bodhi isn’t what it seems from the outside but as the series goes on, we learn where the problems lie and why.
Overall, I truly enjoyed this series, but as I mentioned the cliffhangers where awful. At the end of each book, I may have uttered a quite few expletives, demonstrating my displeasure. The ending left me satisfied that everything was tied up in a neat little bow, even though parts of it were kind of sad. The box set I purchased had another series, The Haunting of Bechdel Mansion, which was also pretty good aside from the cliffhangers. There are some similarities but are still different enough that you don’t end up feeling like you read the same book twice.
