I grew up with a love of the written word. Writing is an art just like any other creative endeavor. Unlike painting with pastels, my words are my medium.

The Haunting of Maddy Clare

The Haunting of Maddy Clare - Simone St. James I thought this was an interesting mystery. It had great atmosphere and I absolutely loved the setting. I wasn't necessarily keen on Matthew Ryder as the hero. He was an alright character, but nothing spectacular. The romance portion was a bit too fake for me. Sarah, the main character, was a little too flippy floppy. Her emotions were all over the place and she was never quite consistent in the way she reacted to stressful situations.

I was hoping for a little more from this book, but overall it was a fairly enjoyable read.
