One of the most original ghost stories I have read in years, Haunted Echoes by Julie Ann Howell is more than an old-fashioned ghost story, to say the least. It has all the right ingredients of a spine-tingling scare ride that’s worth your while. A stormy night, a mysterious stranger, a haunted attic, a gruesome secret, haunting cries, and past voices; you name it, Haunted Echoes has it all. What more could you ask for?

When Sarah Reddington makes a perfect getaway to far-away Maine on a writing excursion, she is the only registered guest in The Otter Cove Inn, an elegant yet quaint Victorian inn overlooking the small town’s lighthouse. Away from the chaos of Chicago, Sarah is planning to write her next big novel in the peace and quiet of the Atlantic’s craggy shore. Not long after her arrival, however, Sarah gets more than she bargained for when she realizes, much to her horror that she is not alone amid the haunted cries that echoed around the inn.

Her writing plans take a backseat when strange things start to happen as Sarah finds herself being involuntarily drawn to a quest to dig into the past of the inn. As she tries to put together the missing pieces of the puzzle one by one, eerie events unfold signaling that the haunted echoes are just the tip of the proverbial iceberg. What are these haunted voices she keeps hearing all the time? Why was the Otter Cover Inn left abandoned with everything in its place, down to the fine china and stemware? What unspeakable incident happened at the inn during the past?

As Sarah attempts to uncover the gruesome events that took place at the inn, she finds it hard to discern reality from fiction, at times bordering on insanity. With everything that is happening and her own mortality on the line, Sarah tries her best to stay sane as she races against the lurking evil to solve the mystery of the haunted echoes before the terror could engulf her. Will she succeed or will she succumb?

From the opening of the story, set in a stormy night, Howell will keep readers guessing until the very last page. With the eerie setting in an abandoned inn, Howell cleverly lures readers into a trap that will guarantee you an unforgettably frightening experience. The free-flowing narrative brings shocking twists and turns that will give you goosebumps and jump-out-of-your-seat scares at times.

An evocative ghost story that will haunt you through and through, Haunting Echoes will grab you by the neck and will not let you go until you have witnessed it all. So sit back and be prepared to be spooked on this ghost hunt of a novel. It would easily become your next favorite ghost story to add to the collection.
