This was probably the least favorite of the novellas that I read
This was probably the least favorite of the novellas that I read this week. It had sort of a campy feel to me. I couldn't help picturing the girl from The Ring crawling out of the T.V. when she was describing the ghost girl crawling out of the cupboard.Was this review helpful?

I did like the romantic aspect of the story, Alexis and Ian running into each other just as the ghost makes her first appearance. Alexis having to overcome the awkwardness of being stood up at the end of spring semester and Ian trying to come up with the way to tell her why he had missed the date. Meanwhile, the ghost kidnaps Tri, her cat and takes her through the walls down to the laundry room. Ian has read somewhere that salt works against ghosts so taking a handful they head off for the laundry room. But of course, a handful of salt isn't much against a vengeful ghost!
This was another quick read, and while it didn't hold the same suspense as the other novella's have had for me, it did keep me entertained.

When strange things suddenly begin to happen in the laundry room cupboards and then her apartment cupboards, her and Ian are suddenly together trying to figure out what is going on! Something hauntingly evil seems to be after them, something they can't explain, and they won't have long to figure it out and save each other from ??? As this is happening, through their fear, Alexis discovers why Ian stood her up...but will they have the chance to try again?
Haunted Chemistry was a really quick, somewhat confusing read. To be honest the plot was difficult to follow and figure out, and I found this to be very distracting from the characters. I felt the story jumped around a bit too much, leaving too many unanswered questions.
I do feel if Haunted Chemistry was longer and the whole concept and relationship expanded on, it might be more than a 2 star rating.

Haunted Chemistry by Lindsey R. Loucks Alexis has laundry to do
Haunted Chemistry by Lindsey R. LoucksWas this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.
Alexis has laundry to do in her new apartment building. She's not comfortable going down to the buildings basement but the task needs to be done. She runs into Ian, her former chemistry partner, and even though he stood her up for a date, she's glad of the company because she's a little scared of the basement. A cabinet door seems to open by itself. Back in her own apartment with Ian, her cat is acting strangely now too. The cat is staring and hissing at an open cabinet door. Alexis is sure that door wasn't open when she left to start the laundry.
Remember that old saying "don't go down to the basement"?
Alexis and Ian see a ghost and identify it very quickly. And they confront the ghost. Brave or stupid? They are pretty blasé about the whole situation which I found unbelievable. Really? You just accept and go after the ghost?
This novella is written in the present tense which I have a difficult time with. Perhaps that's why I found this one difficult get into.
I received a copy of this book from the publisher.
