The Haunting of Hattie Hastings Part One: A ghostly, gloriously witty feel-good romance with a liberal dose of comedy by Audrey Davis

Firstly a Happy New Year to all my readers. 2018 seemed to have gone by in a blur. I didn't achieve much on either the writing or reading front. A more challenging job and a new hobby (Painting) has gotten in the way. Here to 2019 and a resolution to read more books.
So here is to the latest book review. A mild mannered and very British comedy. I gave it 4 stars mainly because it was only 90 long and I feel that the story barely got underway. I did buy part two already.



This is the first in a three book series and this darkly comedic story is certainly a good opener. Middle aged Hattie, her layabout adult son and soon to be deceased husband are all characters we can relate to. They are ordinary British people thrown into an unusual situation and dealing with it as best as they can and with a good bit of humour. It was a fun read and I’m keen to snap up part 2 and 3; as there are still a lot of things that are unresolved and I think the fun is just beginning.
