1689 (The Haunting of Hadlow House, #1) by Amy Cross #Review

Wow! When I finished reading 1689, that’s what I said. This is not my first time reading Amy Cross’s work, and each time I pick one up, I know I’m in for quite the ride. The story ends the way it started with tragedy and in between was one disturbing and even a little perverse scene after another.

The imagery was phenomenal as I walked the halls of Hadlow House with Richard and the other characters, who taunted me with their world and still haunt me to some point today.

While I know haunted house stories are a dime a dozen, 1689 took me on an unexpected journey into the macabre. 
I gave 1689 4 out of 5 Stars.

About 1689

All Richard Hadlow wants is a happy family and a peaceful home. Having built the perfect house deep in the Kent countryside, he now needs a wife. However, he's about to discover that even the most perfectly-laid plans can go horribly and tragically wrong. The year is 1689, and England is in the grip of turmoil. A pretender is trying to take the throne, but Richard has no interest in the affairs of his country. He only cares about finding the perfect wife and giving her a perfect life. But someone – or something – at his newly built house has other ideas. Is Richard's new life about to be destroyed forever? Hadlow House is brand new, but already, there are strange whispers in the corridors and unexplained noises at night. Has Richard just been unlucky, is his new wife Rebecca simply imagining things, or is a dark secret from the past about to rise up and deliver Richard's worst nightmare? Who wins when the past and the present collide? 1689 is the first book in the Haunting of Hadlow House series, which tells the story of one haunted house over the centuries, from its construction to the present day. All the lives, all the souls, all the tragedies... and all the ghosts.
