After Blake Nelson catches her abusive fiancé, Parker, with another woman, she seeks serenity at her late grandmother’s beach cottage. He follows Blake to the island and attempts to kill her, but instead, he dies in an accident while fleeing the police. His malevolent spirit returns to the cottage to finish what he started.

The haunting intensifies when Blake reconnects with her first love, Clint. Will Blake discover how to banish Parker before it’s too late?

The Haunting on Palm Court by Stephanie Edwards combines a great deal of interesting plot points. There is some supernatural touches, some great female characters, and even a bit of romance. The story has such an intriguing premise that will draw a lot of readers in!

Blake has escaped to her family home in Isle of Palm after catching her fiancee cheating. She has history here-a boy she dated through high school who is now a man and a cop, her quirky grandmother, Julia, and Julia’s BFF Nancy. There is a great small town vibe that I enjoyed.

I liked the supernatural aspect. Blake sees ghosts; she doesn’t think much of it anymore because it’s just part of who she is. But now, her life is in danger. The suspense is really great in this aspect. I also enjoyed her grandmother’s teachings as revealed in the book. I think the story has potential; the writing style felt a bit staccato to me. The word choice was simple and more tell than show. Perhaps this is just my personal style; other readers might totally disagree. I also felt the story was underdeveloped. The potential was there, but it fell a tad short for me. It’s not a bad read at all; I think it had more potential.

The Haunting on Palm Court blends a ghost story with a generational drama and a sweet second chance romance to create pleasurable read! Its fairly short, so you could finish this on a weekend binge!
