#Bookreview ~ Laurel Heights ~ Paranormal Romantic Suspense

Author: Denise Moncrief
Genre: Paranormal Romantic Suspense
My Rating: 5 stars!

Murder, revenge, and nightmares. Can their love survive the haunting of Laurel Heights?

A dark cloud of deceit hovers over her family tree...

Left an estate by an aunt she’s never met, Laurel Standridge takes possession of Laurel Heights, hoping it will be the safe haven she needs to recuperate from her ill-fated relationship with Rand Peterson. Secrets long buried rise to the surface when her cousin James is murdered and dumped on the highway just outside the gates of Laurel Heights.

Her past trails her to the mountains of Arkansas...

Caught in an obligation Chase Peterson feels he cannot ignore, he agrees to help his brother Rand take back the property he believes Laurel stole from him, but Chase remains at Laurel Heights after he discovers Laurel took nothing of Rand’s away with her except nightmares, fading bruises, and a broken rib.

Unexplained disturbances shatter her hopes of a normal life...

Are the strange bumps, thumps, and bangs reverberating through the night caused by the murderer of Laurel’s cousin James, someone Rand has sent to exact his revenge, or a disturbed soul existing in another dimension, trying to communicate with the living? Drawn together by the intrigue surrounding Laurel Heights, Chase and Laurel become hopelessly entangled in a relationship that goes deeper than lust. Can their love survive the haunting of Laurel Heights?

My Review:
I’ve read several books by this author now, but this is by far my favorite! The creep factor of the haunted house mixed in with Laurel’s horrible past and all the things she’s running from while trying to rebuild her life. It is a compelling read that left me pouring over my Kindle well into the night.

I liked Laurel from the start, identifying with her introverted ways, while sympathizing with what her jerk of an ex did to her. Of course, Chase makes great hero material. Who doesn’t like a sexy handyman? So much was happening throughout the book with a great mystery underlying it all, but I enjoyed the paranormal aspects most of all.

If you like mysteries, romance, or a great paranormal read, don’t miss this one! 
Five stars!!
