Short Review: Haunting Rachel

Haunting Rachel

by Kay Hooper

~ Goodreads ~

Rating:  2.5 Stars

Danger wears many faces...

Ten years ago Rachel Grant's fiancé, Thomas, disappeared.  His body was never found.  Now there's a stranger in town, a man who could be Thomas's twin--or his ghost.

His name is Adam Delafield.  He's been watching Rachel for days.  He has the locket she gave Thomas before he vanished.  And he says he owed her father three million dollars.

But there's no record of the loan—or a shred of proof that Adam is who he claims to be.  And he's always nearby as accidents begin to threaten Rachel's life.

Is he an innocent man who only wants to repay a debt?  Or a figure from the past with a score to settle?  Rachel must expose lies and unravel stories, find out who wants her dead and why... before the next attempt to kill her succeeds.

I have the distinct feeling that I finished this book for the sake of finishing the book, rather than for the enjoyment of said book.  It's not that this was a terrible book by any standards, and it's not that I disliked it completely.  But for me, this book was really just mediocre, at best, and kind of confusing and haphazard, at worst.

It was a page-turner, but I can't say that it was really all that memorable of one.

And the characters were not all too exciting.  Just as well, the assumed paranormal parts of the book were almost non-existent and none of it creepy at all, so not much of a ghost story.

All-in-all, this was a "meh" type of book for me, personally.
