Josie Douglas came to the isolated country cottage with her research, a good alibi, and a gun. She hoped that she’d have enough time to unravel the facts behind the tragedy that, years before, had shattered her life. Instead, she found herself in a house haunted by its own dark history. A series of strange coincidences, a ghostly visitor, and a mysterious brass key provide Josie with tantalizing clues to a mystery that keeps her guessing at every turn. Also keeping her guessing is Marc Westbrook, a landlord who embodies the meaning of the term drop-dead handsome. Soon, she’ll have to trust him with the secret that drove her into seclusion, a secret that has already cost the life of one man she loved.

Quotes & Awards

  • “Traci Svendsgaard does a wonderful job narrating this tale of a gentle haunting, a decades-old mystery, a new love, and an oddly intelligent cat. The Haunting of Josie is lightweight reading, ideal for the beach or a cozy couch on a winter’s night. At five hours, it’s a breezy escape into a romantic, haunted house, where the spirit is the character that needs help. Svendsgaard’s gentle delivery highlights the simple beauty of the story. She even does a pretty good imitation of a ‘talking’ cat.”

    " I hate romance novels, so I was skeptical about this one. It was worth the read. Yes, it was a love story, but Hooper intertwined the paranormal into it enough to keep me reading. It was worth the time to read. Enjoyable! :) "

    " Not scary at all. Not even creepy. The plot was boring and predictable. And the characters were shallow. But, I did enjoy the cat. The first page hooked me. It was a quick read. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Angela | 5/24/2012

    " This was a cute story, obviously one of Kay Hooper's earlier books focusing more on romance than suspense. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Marty | 10/31/2011

    " I liked the book but there was nothing particularly special about it. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Arianna | 10/23/2011

    " It was a cute book and I couldn't put it down. (Though that's hardly uncommon for me) However, it lacked a suspenseful plot. I do like Kay Hooper's inclusion of 'human' cats. Golden Threads also included a cat...and both made me smile. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jill | 10/10/2011

    " I really enjoyed this book the first time I read it and would have given it a four-star rating. Since that first read through, I have read it again and it didn't strike me as a four-star book, so it gets three stars. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 JoAnn | 8/8/2011

    " An early book from Kay Hooper's transition from romance to paranormal romance. A good story, a little mystery, a cute ending. "

    " I enjoyed this - sometimes you just need to relax and read a book that is somewhat predictable but nonetheless intriquing to see how it all develops and ends. "

    " This was a short but enjoyable read.

    This was about a ghost trying to get his story out and help ease the guilt of those he loved.

    It was a story of the the girl who is haunted by the ghost to resolve this and also find love.

    WOrth a read
