My Review Of My Haunting Love By J. S. Wilsoncroft



Calista Rose is a sixteen year old deaf girl who senses something strange in her new home. Soon she meets a ghost named John and becomes smitten with his good looks and charming ways. Little does she know that falling in love with him brings out the true evil that lingers in her home.

 John is holding a terrible family secret. His life was ended at the hands of his vengeful stepmother. The same woman who inflicted pain on his entire family. When Calista moves into his ancestral home she awakens something in him he never could have imagined. A chance at the love he never got to have.

 But falling in love with Calista is anything but easy. Their love awakens not only John, but the evil lurking inside the house.

 In her debut YA novel Jamie Sue Wilsoncroft takes us on an adventure of first love, repentance, and that all important quest to belong.

 

 My Review

I give this book five stars. Excellet ghost story. There were spooky, fearful moments when Calista faced evil. A sad moment that made me cry. My favorite were the tender moments between John and Calista as they fell in love.

 
Excerpt:

My legs shook as I stared up at him. This whole thing was surreal. I wanted to reach out and touch him, but my hands were glued to the side. He was beautiful, more beautiful than any human I had ever seen. I couldn’t hear him, but I could see he was laughing under his breath as his shoulders shook up and down. My mouth dropped in awe as he slowly raised his hands and began to sign.

     “ You aren’t scared are you?” He asked moving his hands gently. I realized I hadn’t breathed since the moment I felt the tap on my shoulder.

 “No,” I signed, slowly raising my hands. My legs shook as I stood not two inched from him….a ghost.

  He tilted his head back and laughed. “Can I help you paint?” He signed without hesitation.

    Flabbergasted, I blinked a few times. “Uh… yeah… sure if you want to,” I replied, staring at him in disbelief. His shoulders shook again as he laughed, enjoying my reaction. John had warned me ahead of time that he was going to show himself to me, but I wasn’t expecting this. It wasn’t because he was so beautiful and handsome, but because he was so human-like. Part of me was waiting for something scary or gory to face me, but he totally blew me away. This was nothing like any of those ghost movies or books I had read.
