4.5 Stars Review to comeContent Clean mild language A Ghostly RomanceThe perfect Halloween book to read Not scary but just this side of normal Paranormal Although this isn t my favorite Taylor Dean book, it was still great and I was engaged beginning to end Now I MUST read the next book Zoe Grayson loves decorating and old houses, so when she saw Lancaster House for sale and once she viewed inside she fell head over heels for the house She could see it had so much potential Over the next few months though, strange things kept happening around the house It was almost like she had one of the elves from the story the Shoemaker s elves as all her jobs seemed to be finished One night, she decided to stay up and got a fright There was a man in her house One thing leads to another and turns out that the man is, in fact, Andre Lancaster the creator of the house who supposedly died over a century ago after his wife and her lover were murdered in the house As people who aim to harm Zoe are killed, the police start to look at her as the main suspect but know that there is to the story than what she is letting on Can Zoe prove that Andre still exists or is he as the doctors say a figment of her imagination Lancaster House is told from Zoe s perspective during her therapy sessions as she is currently in the Mental hospital after being diagnosed with paranoid schizophrenia Lancaster House has something for everyone from dealing with Mental Health to Paranormal Romance and the Supernatural. Zoe was in Serenity Hills because she had tried to kill herself She was also accused of killing two men Dr Channing had taken over her care and was weaning her from the heavy medications she had been on since her admittance When he told her there was no such thing as ghosts, she told him they had nothing to talk about He asked her to tell him about Lancaster House He didn t think she would answer, but she slowly began to tell him how she fell in love with the house and why she was so desperate to return to it.The realtor explained about the old Victorian home It needed a lot of work She tried to discourage Zoe from going in, let alone buying it, but Zoe could feel the house calling to her For the second time she thought she saw someone in the window She laughed with delight at the unexpected finds and oddities of the house She was intrigued by its idiosyncrasies, the hidden rooms and secret passageways She loved it The real estate agent, Barbara, called the builder, Andre Lancaster, peculiar, but Zoe thought him amazing.The neighbor lady, Mrs Pearson, had come in with them and, while Barbara was busy on the phone, she told Zoe the story of the house The builder s wife and a vagrant were found dead in the house The husband was never found Everyone thought the house was haunted But that wasn t going to stop Zoe.After making the place livable, her first project was the banister She worked late into the night, and even though she wanted to finish it, she quit with ten rails to go In the morning she found it was done She thought she must have been high from the fumes and turned her mind to the next project.When she arose the next morning, the piece of wallpaper she had deliberately left unhung, was put up Also, during the night a blanket had been placed over her Did she have an uninvited quest living with her As she thought about it, all the acts were helpful and caring towards her, so she wasn t afraid, was she Still She went to the courthouse and got the original blue prints She found the builder had intentionally created an illusion on the outside of the house to hide the additional room She tore through the wall and found the wife s bedroom and knew she had been murdered there But the room was covered in dust and no one could have been in there for a long time So where was her elusive guest staying That night someone broke in and attacked her Zoe was surprised when another man came to her rescue.He was shocked that she could see him and speak to him It wasn t long before she was wanting than his help with the house She wanted him She wanted to see him, speak to him, be held by him.Where in the house did he Live Why can t he leave He had told her his name was Andre, but she had never done her research on the house, so the name held no meaning for her.She questioned if he really existed, but she felt his presence He was physical, because she saw him, talked to him, touched him, loved him She couldn t be imagining him, could she 4 Would Highly Recommend To OthersThis was definitely a different twist on a vampire , ghost or madwoman story I got about halfway through and thought WT Never saw that coming Now I get it, or do I A psychological thriller that will keep you guessing The minute you think you have the answer, you better think again.The plot had me guessing if HE was real or not, but I m a reader, not Zoe, so it is totally feasible to me The book was well written and I liked that it took a twist here and there Not your typical vampire or ghost story Or even that of a locked up mad woman As soon as I thought I had it figured out, something else would happen and I would be wondering, what now Definitely messed with my mind, had my head spinning And still does.What would you do if you had an uninvited guest in your house Would you believe it was supernatural or would you think your mind was playing tricks on you Even though you felt him, touched him, kissed him, would you be able to hold to your belief while everyone is telling you that you are wrong That is Zoe s situation.Zoe was confident in her knowledge of Andre, no matter what anyone else tried to tell her All she cared about was being with Andre He tried to make her see they couldn t have a relationship, that they lived in different worlds his was supernatural and she couldn t join him there, or could she I felt the doctor was arrogant and controlling, and I really didn t like him He became obsessed with Zoe and lost his perspective Maybe he s the one who needs help lolShortly into the book, I thought, this will be a three It quickly turned into a four, for the simple reason I began to read faster and faster I had to know what was going to happen next The writing was captivating and took me deeper into the story as it built to its suspenseful ending.The end will take you away Just hope you don t end up in Serenity Hills with Zoe.I received this book in return for an honest and unbiased review.Lancaster HouseTaylor

Psychiatric Hospital, Scheming For Ways To Return To Lancaster House And The Love Of Her Life 4.5 stars A paranormal romance sounded like a perfect Halloween read An old house with lots of secrets that is supposedly haunted, psychiatric hospital, mysterious man, mystery and clean romance It all sounded like a great recipe to me We start with Doctor Channing, a psychiatrist in a psychiatric hospital, meeting with his patient, Zoe Grayson She s believed to be schizophrenic and suffering from hallucinations and very dangerous She s also believed to have killed two men and is suicidal For two weeks, she s said nothing She wants her house and life back, though, so she starts to open up to him The story is told in flashback and we get her story piecemeal with commentary from Dr Channing throughout She starts by telling him about Lancaster House, and then we learn about the mysterious man Andre , her ex fiance, and everything else that s happened to bring her to the hospital Is Zoe sane or crazy That is the question Once I started reading, this book was hard to put down I loved getting the story piecemeal and was anxious to find out what would happen next There were also quite a few twists and turns Zoe is likable and I felt that her obsession with her new life with Andre was realistic She knew she would be viewed as crazy so tried to act normal but it became difficult I loved reading their story and look forward to reading There are a few swear words and some passionate kissing which I consider clean I recommend this to anyone looking for a great paranormal mystery with some clean romance Mel s Shelves I don t usually read what pop culture refers to as chick lit I ve never, for example, read a Nicholas Sparks book But I m still a sucker for romance, especially paranormal romance The problem is that there is so much paranormal fiction hitting the shelves these days, it is really difficult to find one that is well written Even difficult to find a story that is relatively clean.I must admit, I was pleasantly surprised to find such a well written, fun paranormal romance in the indie published Lancaster House by Taylor Dean I was even surprised to find out that paranormal romance was a new genre for this author, because the unique love story is both charming and heart felt.The story begins when Zoe Grayson decides her life needs a big change after experiencing several major losses She sells her business, moves states, and purchases the rambling Victorian home, Lancaster House, with the idea that she can use her interior design skills to fix it up and sell it Despite warnings from concerned neighbors that the house may be haunted and could spell bad news for residents, Zoe s fiery spark of adventure and desire to prove herself leads her to purchase the home and begin renovations.When work Zoe begins is finished in the night, she begins to wonder if someone is hiding in the enigmatic house When a mysterious protector comes to her rescue, she begins to wonder if she is crazy Zoe s time in Lancaster House introduces her to love, is rife with adventure, and has her question the world around her in such a way that lands her in a mental institution.Lancaster House is a thought provoking romantic read that isn t afraid to confront darkness, but doesn t wind up sliding down the shadowy slope that many current paranormal stories do Dean s writing also brings the house to life, and you can tell that she did her research Lancaster House becomes both a secondary character and a splendid setting for the story.Some critics are probably going to call this book out for making easy use of mythology to explain certain things Although some of the explanation is a bit abrupt, I still found myself pulled into the story Even the romance, which could easily have been cheesy, is real for the reader and you empathize with both characters.Although there are some repetitions and slight editing hiccups, Lancaster House is very well written, especially for an Indie book Literary snobs may look down their nose, but anyone who is looking for a compelling story or a fun Saturday night romantic read will enjoy this book I d recommend it over at least 90 percent of the romance lit I ve read this year and am very much looking forward to the next book in the series In fact, I finished Lancaster House in a single evening, and I ll probably do the same with The Middle Aisle. To find out why Joy tried to kill herself, why she is under the care of Dr Channing at Serenity HIlls, and why she is suspected of killing two men, we have to go back to the beginning.When Joy first laid eyes on Lancaster House, she knew she had to have it.She couldn t wait to get started on the restoration Couldn t wait to bring the old house back to its former glory.The work was slow but rewarding She was doing one room at a time She would go to bed exhausted and rise to start again the next morning.After five hours of scraping and sanding the bannister, she took a lunch break When she returned to finish up, she couldn t believe her eyes It was finished She told herself maybe she was confused, being so tired and all.But the next night it happened again She didn t get the wall papering done.In the morning, when she came downstairs, it was finished.Now she panicked, racing through the house, but no one was there.Not one to be scared, she knows she can figure this out.Stop standing here like a ninny and figure this out There has to be a logical explanation.But there isn t And she is beginning to think the former owner, Andre Lancaster, is still living in the house Either that or she is going crazy Mini Excerpt for ya You can see me he asked again, his tone urgent Yes, she whispered, unable to find her voice.For several seconds he simply stared at her, his eyes smoldering She trembled under his gaze, her bottom lip quivering One hand reached up, his motions slow, and cupped her cheek He let out his breath and closed his eyes as if the feel of her did something to him I won t hurt you Zoe But how can that be He s been dead for many, many years.A really fun part of this story is the language The slang from the 1920 s is quirky and I enjoyed reading how Joy figured out what Andre meant by some of the sayings.Stuff like giggle water is alcohol Makes sense And Bank s closed which means no kissing.After you finish reading Lancaster House you tell me what you think Is Joy crazy Did she just make up Andre and their passionate affair to keep from being alone Is Dr Channing right in that ghosts don t exist So many questions and an ending that will let you decide, or not.I adored Joy and Andre and want a Lancaster House of my own. Zoe Grayson has just purchased her dream house A 1920 s Victorian Mansion that she is going to slowly fix up and restore She loves the old house with all of its secret passages and history People think it is strange for her to live alone in such a big house but she has never been happier With a hefty inheritance , Zoe can work on the house at her leisure and not have to worry about income Then strange things start to happen Is Zoe imagining things or is some unseen force behind it Zoe meets and has an instant attract to a handsome Who is he and where did he come from He has obviously been living in her house but how does he come and go without her knowledge Zoe tells us her story of love and heartbreak through her psychiatrist at the local hospital Another wonderful book written by the wonderful Taylor Dean Just when you think you have figured out what is going on, you are blow away with surprises Zoe is such a wonderful character You feel for her and want desperately to believe her story After you read this book you will believe in true love and that it can withstand anything, even time A wonderful clean love story that will keep you up all night to finish reading it I recommend this book to everyone You will love it For me one of the most important parts of a book is the setting While character development is vitally important and an interesting plot is essential, if I can t visualize the setting I have a hard time reading the book That wasn t a problem here, Dean does a fabulous job creating a very vivid setting In fact, she did such a great job that I wanted to actually leap into the book and visit the place, old and damaged or not I loved the idea of secret hiding places and staircases that go nowhere and I m a big fan of carved wooden features I also really enjoyed Zoe as a character, a woman who is dealing with the grief of losing her father and the unfaithfulness of her former fiance, throws herself into renovating Lancaster House I admired the fact that she didn t let her struggles from doing something she wanted to do Of the strange things that start happening throw her for a loop, but she tries to deal with it the best way she knows how I found the other characters interesting as well, especially Andre The plot is definitely an intriguing one, which I enjoyed immensely, I found it very unique and compelling I can whole heartedly recommend this as a clean, intriguing romance with lots of mysterious elements.
