I don’t know if I’ve ever mentioned this but Catherine Coulter was one of the my first, and remains one of my favorite, authors. I’ve read everything she’s written, many several times, and can’t believe I’ve reviewed so few of her books. I’ll be rectifying that soon!
I love a tale of good versus evil and The Resident Evil at Blackthorn Manor is no exception. It is without a doubt one of the best paranormal novellas I’ve ever read. Admittedly, knowing the characters beforehand played into that, but one doesn’t need to have a history with them to enjoy this wonderful little book.
The Resident Evil at Blackthorn Manor is a must read. It’s a little racy for YA but would be a terrific campfire story. 😉 Enjoy!
I don’t know how I missed the first book in this novella series but I’ll be getting to that one soon!

About Our Author:
For Coulter’s first novel, The Autumn Countess, she chose a Regency setting for her debut because, says Coulter, “as any published author will tell you, it’s best to limit the unknowns in a first book, and not only had I grown up reading Georgette Heyer, whom I worship, but I earned my M.A. degree in early 19th century European History and could fight in Napoleon’s army, or join the Allies and beat his butt with Wellington.”
Following The Autumn Countess, Coulter wrote six more Regency romances. She then turned to long historicals and eventually interspersed them with contemporary suspense novels, beginning with False Pretenses in 1988, her very first hardcover.
Coulter grew up on a horse ranch in Texas, and graduated from the University of Texas, receiving her graduate degree from Boston College. She became a speechwriter on Wall Street, then, to her joy, she was able to quit her day job and become a full-time writer.
She lives with her physician husband and three cats in Marin County, California, right over the Golden Gate Bridge. She loves to travel, loves to kamikaze down the ski slopes, and reads voraciously while recuperating. She likes to laugh, loves a good joke, and believes the publishing business is too crazy to take seriously.
If you read just one of Coulter’s FBI thrillers, she’s got you, so prepare for eye strain and jumping at things that go bump in the night.
