Overview

Carly and Austin Tabor relocated from the Mile High City of Denver to the Low Country of Charleston, purchasing a diamond-in-the-rough home on historic King Street. As soon as the couple takes possession of their home, unexplained noises and a trio of spirits lead Carly to seek the help of sensitive, Delaney Warrick, to understand why the ghosts are unable to find rest.

Searching through the historical records of the city, Delaney learns the ghosts are the original owners, Andrew and Celeste Pettigrew, who were murdered in Carly's front parlor two hundred years prior. Carly and Delaney must solve the mystery of why the couple's home is also being haunted by the surly dock worker, Benjamin Hastings.

Carly and Delaney enlist the help of paranormal investigators to find out why the ghosts won't leave the scene of their murders, and find that a fourth spirit, orphan Freddy Richards, was hiding in the house when the murders took place. Is Freddie the final piece to the puzzle? Will Carly and Delaney unlock the secrets that will free the spirits to find peace?

I will admit, I am a haunted house and paranormal show junky. As in, I watch them, I follow them on social media and I even love visiting the locations. I have discovered that there is so much more going on around us than meets the eye and ear. Imagine my delight when I am researching the authors coming to the Southern Kentucky Book fair in my hometown of Bowling Green Kentucky earlier this year and I find a promising book about a haunted house. The description read more like an actual event than fiction. So, I put it on my list and prepared myself to meet this Lori Roberts and give her my $16. Fast forward three months later and I am finally able to read “Cries In The Night” and I have absorbed even more episodes of Ghost Hunters, Ghost Adventures and Kindred Spirits. I might have even done some EVP work and talked to a small girl spirit at a local Civil War home. Think what you want, but they are for real! We meet Carly and Austin Tabor and they have purchased a Civil War era home in Charleston South Carolina. So far, your run of the mill set up for a ghost story, right? Well, the creep factor starts off right at the beginning and doesn’t let up until the end. We usually have slow portions through paranormal stories so the reader isn’t “over ghosted” as I call it but not this book. You are on that rollercoaster, roaming the halls, investigating and fearing for the next occurrence right with the residences. Lori does not give up, nor do the spirits of their home. These spirits are talking, walking and freaking everyone out trying to get their message across. This is so true to real life manifestations. When a spirit wants your attention and you’re in their space, they will keep going until you do something. Lori goes one step further as though this is a secret guide on how to investigate a haunting in your home hidden as a work of fiction (I’m on to ya). She takes her characters on a historical search for the past owners of the house, researches the antiques and even hires paranormal investigators. We go with Carly and her “sensitive” friend, Delaney as they explore courthouse documents, old newspapers and land deeds to finally solve an ancient murder that occurred in their home. I was chilled, I was inspired and I was sobbing throughout the book. Like a wondering spirit, I attached myself to the characters and fell in love with the Tabors, Delaney and the Pettigrew family. There was no stone unturned in this book when it came to getting to the bottom of the mystery. The determination of the Tabors to stay together, support each other and choose the path they did really spoke to their relationship. I only hope that if I ever move into a haunted residence, that I can be as awesome as this fictional couple. How on earth did a fictional couple just inspire me? Well, they did. I guess couples that ghost hunt together, stay together.

Cries in the Night: a Lowcountry Ghost Story is a great haunted house story. It has been a long time since I read a real good haunted house story with good twists and turns, good plot, well developed characters, and the intrigue of who-done-it and why. The author gets you so wrapped up in the story that you feel so much empathy, fear, curiosity, love, and so many emotions all mixed together in one story. It is complex, exciting, fast paced, and believable. A perfect book for the ghost hunting book hunter. I reviewed this book for NetGalley.

This book was extremely hard to put down! There was never a dull moment, the characters are well developed, the plot was thrilling and the setting was beautiful. It does make you wonder about the bumps and creaks in your own house though. It makes you question whether the story is truly fiction? Can't wait for Lori's next book!

Early on in this book I thought what a great creepy novel this would be for Halloween. Then about 1/3 of the way through, I was like "okay, I get it, the house is haunted". Then about 1/2 of the way through I was like "okay, everyone knows it's haunted, the wife, the tour director of the haunted ghost rides, the husband, the paranormal video guys, me; the reader, my roommate who I've told during smoke breaks, EVERYONE KNOWS!!!. What I'm saying is that the author kind of wore this part into the ground. It could have been way shorter. I was actually kind of turned off by this time, but I just had to know what the real story was and why were the ghosts there. Yeah, dangle that carrot. I think this book could have received at least another star had it been shortened. It seriously was on its way to becoming a really good and creepy book, but the author just took too long telling us the house was haunted. I mean the ghosts were doing practically the same thing over and over there for a while and then suddenly they started doing more after about 100 pages. And what about the lady next door? There were suggestions made about her but nothing was elaborated on. I think some time could have been spent on her and less on telling us the house was haunted. And, if Delaney did guided tours for haunted houses, why wasn't this house on the tour? I do love the cover though! Thanks Canterbury House and Net Galley for providing a free e-galley in exchange for an honest review.
