Haunted (The Arnaud Legacy #1) by Lynn Carthage Review

*I received a eARC of this through Netgalley for my honest review*

Sixteen-year-old Phoebe Irving has traded life in San Francisco for her stepfather’s ancestral mansion in rural England. It’s supposed to be the new start her family needs. But from the moment she crosses the threshold into the ancient estate, Phoebe senses something ominous. Then again, she's a little sensitive lately—not surprising when her parents are oblivious to her, her old life is six thousand miles away, and the only guy around is completely gorgeous but giving her mixed messages.

But at least Miles doesn't laugh at Phoebe’s growing fears. And she can trust him…maybe. The locals whisper about the manor’s infamous original owner, Madame Arnaud, and tell grim stories of missing children and vengeful spirits. Phoebe is determined to protect her loved ones—especially her little sister, Tabby. But even amidst the manor’s dark shadows, the deepest mysteries may involve Phoebe herself…


This sounded really interesting so I couldn't wait to read it.

It was good but it was predictable and I thought that the author did a great job with descriptions.  It actually stayed up a bit later than I wanted just because I just had to finish this book to see how it ended.  

Would I read the next book? Most likely but it isn't one that I am very excited about and I won't rush to get it.  

I give this 3 out of 5 because I felt that the ending was a little rushed.
