The Shadowy Horses by Susanna Kearsley

I was reminded of another book I need to review by an announcement that the ebook is on sale: The Shadowy Horses by Susanna Kearsley is currently only 99 cents on both Barnes & Noble and Amazon.com's websites.  I myself checked the ebook out from the library a couple of months ago -- and quite happily devoured the entire thing.  In fact, I am currently debating whether I ought to still buy it -- although I don't frequently reread books, it is only a buck.  Plus, I own several of the authors' other ebooks (also all bought on sale).


Despite that fact, The Shadowy Horses was the first of Susanna Kearsley's books that I had read.  This book turned out to be a ghost story, and I was up late reading it on Halloween, which seemed appropriate.  It's a story of an archaeologist who goes to work on a dig at a former Roman site, only to find out that the biggest evidence that it even is a site -- let alone what everyone is hoping it is -- is the word of a local kid who is supposedly psychic.

I've always loved a good ghost story, and this one has everything I love: suspense, history, and even a little romance.  It's a sweet but also very tense story, and I highly recommend it -- I think Susanna Kearsley may be one of my new favorite authors!
