A Spooktacular Read

If you're looking for a creepy book to curl up to this Halloween, allow me to recommend , Leanna: Possession Of A Woman by Marie Kiraly.

It's the story of a writer who ends up residing in a room in New Orleans were a murder and suicide occurred. The heroine, Hailey, becomes so intrigued by the story of the two lovers and their demise that she decides to write their story. Of course, things are made more interesting when "Leanna" decides to inhabit Hailey's body as well as telling her, her life story through vivid dreams.

It's a tale of voodoo, abuse, incest and every other nasty thing you can possibly imagine. It's also a good read. It's one of the very few novels of its kind that doesn't feel contrived or cliched.

The revelations that are uncovered as the book progresses are unexpected. This book definitely keeps you on your toes and the edge of your seat as you wait for the ending.

So if you are after a good creepy, haunting read, find a copy of this one and settle down to be surprised at how the story plays out over the backdrop of New Orleans.
