MY REVIEW:

  Do you believe in Ghosts?  In my house there is an agreement to disagree.  My husband is a firm believer in the supernatural while I'm not so much, but I'd more say that I'm undecided.  My husband believes that he had a ghost in his house growing up, apparently an angry one who would move things and "literally throw things across the room".  Maybe this spirit just didn't like my mother-in-law... could be!!  But on a more serious note, I don't know if I believe, maybe they exist and then maybe they don't.  Anything is possible right?
 
  In this book Rayne Hall has once again chosen 10 stories written by other authors and included them in this book.  I like some of the tails better than others but I like them all a little bit.  I love the prospect of the supernatural and I like to keep my options open, you know, just in case!  I really enjoyed the very first story, I actually read that one twice.  I had a feeling as I was reading it that he was not actually a ghost but that it was his wife who somehow had passed away leaving him miserable and not grieving very well.  Which is something we all do differently and I could see myself just like this man if it were my husband who passed.  My existence would be confusing at the time, especially if my children were old enough and I didn't have to take care of them anymore, if they didn't depend on me,  I would definitely lose touch with reality.  I'm not sure how I would handle that loss, I guess I would hope to have support from family and friends and make it through.  The loss of a loved one is never easy, I tend to lock my feelings out and not really mourn well but I am not sure I could do that with my husband.  I have told him before that I want to go first, I don't want to live without him, and then I'll come back and haunt him, oh so see I guess I must believe!

  I really enjoyed these stories, as I've said before Rayne has the ability to group some good short stories together in these books for readers to enjoy.  The writers have different ideas of ghosts and how they come to be in their stories.  Very creative stories from different viewpoints, giving a little bit of ghostly variety.  I think this would make a good read for those who enjoy a little scary ghost tale, although, I didn't really feel any were scary but they did make me wonder what if it did happen in real life, how would I react?  Good stories, great talent.  Keep up the good work Rayne!!
