“I didn’t believe in ghosts. Until I met him.”
As a horror novelist, Ben makes a living telling scary stories. However, he’s struggling in his career and fears he’s lost his touch. Not only is there a disconnect in his writing, but in his personal life as well. After his relationship goes south, he decides to start over and moves to Ivy Grove, a small town with a lot of history.
He hopes the quaint town and beautiful Victorian manor he moved into will spark inspiration and help him fall back in love with writing.
And then strange things start happening.
Creaks in the hall, shadows from the corner of his eye, and the sense that he’s being watched. Ben soon learns that the manor has a dark past, and within the morbid history, he discovers a century old mystery.
Who is Theo Blackwell? And what happened to him all those years ago?
As Ben begins to unravel the truth, he finds himself not only falling in love with writing again, but also falling for the stunning young man who haunts his manor.
*The Ghost of Ellwood is a paranormal m/m romance. You’ll find mystery, a somewhat grumpy writer, a sassy ghost, and of course a HEA.
I really loved this book. Ben and Theo are so sweet together. I love ghost stories and this one was really amazing. It was really beautiful. Hauntingly do.
I cried when I read about Harvey and what happened to Theo. It was heartbreaking. I love how Ben and Theo’s relationship slowly progressed. The building of trust. They are perfect for each other.
“You keep me grounded, Ben Cross. You add color to my black and white world.”
Carter, Ben’s best friend, is my favourite. I’m a huge Tokyo Ghoul fan too and I love that he’s into anime. I can’t wait for his book, hopefully with Z.
