About the Book
The Haunting of Hattie Hastings Part One: A ghostly and gloriously witty romantic comedy.
Some people just won’t take death lying down … ! (NB: cliffhanger ending).
Part one of a fun-filled trilogy about life, death and letting go.
Hattie Hastings is happily married, even if husband Gary drives her up the wall at times. When tragedy strikes, she is left alone and heartbroken, with only an assortment of family and friends to prop her up.
Struggling to cope, she is left reeling when her deceased other half returns, popping up at the most inappropriate times.
Hattie can’t convince anyone that Gary has returned. Not even best friend Cat – now free from the cruel and controlling Stewart – will believe her.
Why has Gary returned? And what will Cat do when her slimy ex-husband tries to worm his way back into her affections?
The Haunting of Hattie Hastings will make you laugh, cry and count down until Part Two …
With thanks to the author for the copy received.
I didn’t really know what to expect from this book, It is part one of a trilogy that will be published fully over the next few months. I can say that I loved everything about it.
Hattie had a great marriage with Gary and was devastated after his sudden death. He wasn’t turned into a saint by his death. Everybody he knew loved him and there was nothing to suggest that he wasn’t a lovely person to know. But unlike everybody else Hattie can still see Gary. He doesn’t feel like he used to but apart from that he is no different. He visits her often, unfortunately never when anybody else is there.
I found this great fun, not fall over laughing, but it was so good to read about a couple who adored each other but were no longer able to be together in the normal way. There were various narrators, Hattie, her best friend Cat, and various members of her family. None of them knew what to say or think about Gary’s visits.
There were also storylines concerning other characters, Cat’s ex has made an unwelcome reappearance just as she has managed to turn her life around, and all of Hattie’s family had their own story to tell.
I have read a few books lately that are serialised but this is one of my favourites. I can’t wait to see what happens next.
