Book review: Specter

This was a book that I read as part of being a panelist for the BBNYA group this past year and now we are doing book tours for the winners so here is my review of Specter by Katie Jane Gallagher.

Synopsis: Horror aficionado Lanie Adams should be thrilled when two eighties-era ghosts materialize in her bedroom. Yet after a fainting incident unbecoming of a horror nerd, she would rather her haunting just go away—the ghosts’ waterlogged voices and ice-cold auras are more terrifying than any movie. Enlisting the help of Ryan, an entirely-too-cute stoner, she makes it her mission to put the spirits stalking her to rest.

Some sleuthing reveals that their sleepy Connecticut town is host to a shadowy, decades-old conspiracy. If Lanie wants to say a final goodbye to her ghosts, she’ll need to keep digging. But it’s important to tread carefully. The culprit is still in town—and they’ll stop at nothing to keep the truth buried.

The book was equalling chilling as it was thrilling. I love following along with these characters as they tried to solve this mystery and set these ghosts to rest. It was a very compelling story that had me gripped from the minute I started the book.

I was also a little creeped out at times when reading this which was perfect! I love when I book can give me that feeling. It is what I look for in thriller/mystery books.

I also liked the paranormal aspect to it. I don’t read enough paranormal books and this just made me want to pick up more!

Book Rating: 4/5
