The Lingering by S.J.I. Holliday


Creepy, atmospheric read for October? Yessss please! I have had this book on my kindle for so long just waiting for the perfect time to read it, now is the time!  Bodies of water that feel like they are pulling you down, trying to smother and drown you...cold flashes....glimpses of ghosts...wet footsteps when nobody is around to leave them...things that go bump in the night...yep this is my kind of book.

Would you live in a former asylum? One that served as a psychiatric hospital that practiced "questionable practices?"  A big stately building that is gorgeous on the outside, but on the inside the walls hold all kinds of secrets? Nope, not this girl, not staying one single night in that place.


The Rosalind House is a commune that is very selective in their residents. A collection of quite a eccentric group of people that are looking to leave the real world behind. To shut out all the stress of their past lives and immerse themselves and "embrace the light." They are extensively vetted to make sure they are the right fit. Except for the newest residents Ali and Jack.  Well, well, well...what do we have here?! A great story in the making....

This is my first Susi Holliday book I have read, I must say I love her writing style. She spun such a creepy, ghostly atmospheric story she managed to creep me out. The people in the town gossip that the Rosalind House is haunted and I have to agree! It took me all the way until the end to realize what the title was referring to and it is the perfect title for this book! The cover is not only amazing but fits this story to the tee. Loved it and looking forward to more from Susi Holliday!!
