Lancaster House Review

My last stop on my Lancaster House Blog Tour included another great review!
Thank you to Brenda of WV Stitcher for her thoughts and insights on Lancaster House.

My take on this book:
I am a huge fan of paranormal fiction so I was excited to read "Lancaster House" by new to me author Taylor Dean. I found myself drawn into a story that provided several twists that kept me turning the pages to reach the final conclusion.

After breaking up with Connor Gage, twenty five year old Zoe Grayson decides she needs a change in her life, so she sells her successful interior design business in Arizona and heads to California to start over. She decides to look for a house to restore and since she has always loved old Victorian homes she decides to purchase an old 20's Victorian mansion, even though the history of the house has many thinking that it is haunted. As Zoe begins her work of restoring the home to its former splendor weird things start to happen that cause Zoe to question her sanity.

I loved the way this story was written. I was easily drawn into Zoe's story, and because of the way the story starts out I couldn't help but wonder what would ultimately happen with Zoe's character. The story opens up with Zoe meeting Dr. Wade Channing, a new doctor that has been assigned to her, so we learn her story as she tells it to him, but we also get bits of the story from the past. The author smoothly transitions between the two and kept me on the edge of my seat the entire time.The character of Andre was certainly a twist that I didn't see coming but really enjoyed. The reference to the Winchester House and its many dead ending staircases and secret passages really got my mind to racing as to how the Lancaster House was constructed.

If you enjoy reading paranormal fiction with a twist your certainly going to enjoy "Lancaster House" my only complaint is waiting for the next book in the series.
