Overview

Ghosts have been the entertaining subject of many works of fiction, but they're even more intriguing (and perhaps even scarier) when they are the focus of real-life hauntings in our own backyard. An employee of the St. James Hotel in New Mexico watches in shock as a fair-haired toddler with a terribly disfigured face disappears into the floor. This is just one of the paranormal mysteries Leslie Rule shares with us—a result of extensive interviews and research uncovering the reasons behind ghost sightings across the country.
Coast to Coast Ghosts features dozens of spine-tingling, real-life ghost stories and approximately fifty black-and-white photographs taken by Rule, including some believed to have captured actual apparitions.

This book is amazing! I loved it. I felt like I was actually experiencing these stories, they were so well written. I've read many books on this subject but, this by far, is THE best! Some of the books I've read, you can really tell that the stories are made up, completely imaginary, but not this one. You can just tell that these stories are real. It's so hard to put the book down. I Myself, absolutely love learning about the Paranormal, and this book definitely taught me some things about it. This is definitely a book I would recommend to my friends! I loved it! Thank you Leslie Rule for writing such a great book.

This is one of my favorite ghost book ever made. I really like to read about ghosts and this one blew my mind. Leslie Rule is the greatest witer when it comes to ghost. Im in the middle of her book for the fourth time this month. It is a really AWESOME book. If you know some who doesn't believe in ghost tell them to read this book, it will change their mind dor sure. Leslie Rule is the most-minded ghost writer ever.

Leslie Rule is almost like a friend telling you a great ghost story. You truly feel she wrote this book so you would read it. I couldn't put it down. I'm in the middle of reading it for the second time and love it even more than the 1st. The only disappointment I have is that it only took me 3 days to finish. Maybe had I taken a few breaks it would have taken longer. Hates off to you Leslie, I can't wait until I get the newest one in the mail. Keep it coming!

Leslie has her mother's gift of narration. She's easy reading, credible, and down to earth. I couldn't put it down, and am excited to see she's continued on in this genre! I think I'm hooked!

This book is probably the best I have read on the subject. It sucked me in from the very first page...and it took me only about 3 days to get through the whole thing because I just could not put it down. Leslie Rule is great writer and really nailed the subject. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!!

Loved 'Coast to Coast'! Leslie really knows how to ferret out information and weave a mesmerizing story. I'm just wondering the difference between an 'angel' and a 'ghost.'

I thought that this was a really good book. I have read it about 7 times in the last year or so. I recommend this book to all who dont believe in ghosts. or the paranornall.

Finally, here is a ghost book that doesn't resort to junior-high storytelling to be scary! Leslie Rule tells her well-researched ghost tales in a straightforward, matter-of-fact manner. She is open-minded, but it is clear that she has gone to a lot of trouble to authenticate her stories. She has certainly not thrown scepticism out the window. This would be a wonderful book to reassure people who have seen ghosts. Rule includes quite a few helpful checklists, so the frightened viewer can determine in retrospect whether she is experiencing a legitimate haunting or not. And, on top of all this, it is MOST entertaining! This is a very compelling book, difficult to put down once you pick it up.

EXCELLENT BOOK AND I ALWAYS LOVES TRUE GHOSTS STORIES! THIS BOOK IS MUST READ! LOVE THAT BOOK AND ITS CREEPY AND INTERESTING! I WANT TO READ THE SECOND BOOK OF 'COAST TO COAST GHOSTS 2'!

This is one of the best true ghost story books I've seen released on the market in a long time!! The book is filled with wonderfully written stories of true experiences with the paranormal. The book also includes a listing of haunted campuses across the U.S. plus so much more information, including places you might find a ghostly face lurking back at you! This book is a great example of a very talented writer and I look forward to many more books written by Leslie Rule in the future. I found myself not being able to put the book down until I read the last and final story in the book. I highly recommend this book to everyone!!

This book is the one that you can't put down. I am a slow reader, but it only took me 2 days to read it, without skipping chapters. I would recommend it to anyone who has doubts about ghosts. It will make a believer out of you...
