Rosalind is a young woman who has recently moved away from her friends and in with her boyfriend. With no money and homeless after a break up she and her faithful pup Tofu move into a secret room in the building where she has been made branch manager by the creepy and dirty old man who interviewed several applicants before her but could never find anyone willing to take the job. Strange occurrences and bumps in the night follow as Rosalind gets closer to untangling the mystery of what really happened to the branch manager before her.
This story was a bit more tame than what I would normally expect from a book I found in the horror section. It's more a mystery/ghost story than horror and at first I thought it was geared towards a young adult audience until some of the language, and a journal describing one character's sexual proclivities changed my mind on that notion.

This was a great mysterious ghostly read!

This was my first time reading this author and I was impressed how I was drawn into the story so quickly. The book is not scary as it leans more toward mystery and suspense.

A little backstory for you readers:

The story centers around Rosalind who has become branch manager at the local library. When she lands the job she finds out the library is supposedly haunted, but she doesn't really believe in ghosts, so she figures that the only way she will believe in them is by seeing actual proof that they exist. The previous branch manager passed away which seemed suspicious to local authorities.

Rosalind is basically homeless at the time and ends up living in a secret room at the library with her dog, Tofu, her trusty companion. She has been told that she cannot live at the library, but she doesn't pay attention to the rules and ends up staying there anyway.

Two male characters in the book make her life miserable:

Olen, her boss, the man that hired her for the library position is a ruthless sleazeball and he will do anything to catch Rosalind "living" there plus he would like to have his way with her.

Mason, the librarian custodian, seems out to get her into trouble with Olen along with not following any orders that she hands his way.

When the haunting begins, Rosalind finally realizes that ghosts do exist and she sets out to find why the library is haunted along with her employees that work there as they try to solve the mystery.

The book itself was mild for a haunting and though it wasn't "creep out horror", there was still enough mystery surrounding the story that kept me reading. I have the rest of the series of books so I will continue on with them to see where the story of Rosalind takes me. Four stars for this one.

Damon was a paradox. He presented this bad boy image but felt things deeply. Kelsey has always worn her heart on her sleeve. This has caused her a lot of heartbreak. Her decision to harden her heart and pursue her dreams is her way of coping. What I thought was a wonderful twist is that outwardly these two characters seemed to have nothing in common. However the inner struggles they faced and were working through made them perfect for each other. A pleasant surprise from a new discovery.

I found it to be so sweet the lengths Alexander went to in order to convince Marissa of his devotion and sincerity. He went old school romantic on her. Need not such may more than that. I am a sucker for a sensitive man.
