Book Review: Possessed by Kate Cann

Hardcover: 336 pages
Publisher: Point (February 1, 2010)

Rayne can't wait to start her summer job at a remote country mansion, far from the crowded, noisy London she so desperately wants to escape. But the retreat soon turns into a nightmare -- the mansion is creepy, the legends of ghosts keep Rayne up at night, and she doesn't feel safe anywhere.

Can Rayne figure out why she's so freaked -- before she becomes a ghost story herself?

.........................................................................................................

Rayne wants to escape the noisy life of London and her demanding mother and possessive boyfriend. She takes a job at a tea room on an old and creepy estate. She befriends a group of attractive young people and hooks up with the leader of the group. Lots of creepiness ensues involving the bad and o history of the estate she is working and living at.

The story starts off very slow and it is not until halfway through that it gets really interesting. After that it just seems like it concludes too fast and the interesting part of the story is not explored enough for my tastes. Not a bad read...it is somewhat interesting.

3/5
