Overview

Military historian Luke Alcott leaps at the chance to live in the seventeenth-century country mansion of Eelmoor Hall, home of the Royal Military School of Medicine, after being offered a job cataloging the school's archives. Luke believes he chose the perfect place to start a new life and put his broken past behind him. But soon after settling into the old house, he hears strange noises--like footsteps--and he begins to suffer from terrible nightmares.

The only person Luke can turn to for help is the taciturn caretaker, Jay, a veteran of the Afghanistan war who carries an old battle wound. Together they try to understand Eelmoor Hall's history and decipher what could be causing the haunting. As the weather grows colder and snow dusts the countryside, a child goes missing. Luke needs to deal with his own demons and learn to trust in love again if he hopes to face down the angry spirit and find the missing girl.

A Frost of Cares has a little bit of everything. Paranormal, gothic, mystery, romance, history, ghosts, all tied together with a certain level of creepiness that will definitely keep you on your toes. Halloween may be months away but it's a great read for any time of the year, however if you only read paranormal in October, you must put this near the top of your spooky TBR list. I always find tales of mystery the hardest to review because I just do not do spoilers so I guess, I'll make this short and sweet: I highly recommend this creepy romance! This is the first Amy Rae Durreson story I've read but it most definitely won't be the last. I know that not every one is comfortable when it comes to new-to-them authors but I find they fill me with almost as much anticipation as opening a new book and Durreson is no different.

I’m just not sure what to make of this one, over all I enjoyed it. However, it took a bit to get into the swing of things. We flip from past to present and your not really sure it’s happening until the story isn’t making since, then your like oh, he’s talking to Jay again. It’s written as a diary almost, of Luke’s time at this Manor home. And it’s being written in ‘real time’ so the whole story is Luke telling us of his ‘past’ experiences at the home, leading up to the job and what happened after. He’s telling us it’s Jay’s idea, almost like therapy. On the whole, I liked Jay and Luke, they had a good team. Discovering what goes bump in the night and helping it settle down. And the bits we found out about them made them more real in the long run. I was expecting something different when reading the blurb, and having never read this author before not sure if this is the style of just this book. I’ll be a little more cautious if I pick up this authors work again, though. Too much ‘boo’ and drama and not enough real life for me. But it was well written and well edited and both of those go a long way these days. I was given a copy in exchange for an honest review by Crystals Many reviewers
