The Resident Evil at Blackthorn Manor

amazon Goodreads
In Grayson Sherbrooke’s second Otherworldly Adventure, he goes to Scotland to Vere Castle, the home of his aunt and uncle, the Earl and Countess of Ashburnam. His aunt Sinjun had written to him that her resident ghost, Pearlin’ Jane, warned that evil was coming. But Grayson doesn’t make it to Vere Castle. He’s stopped by a mysterious carriage, a beautiful white hand extends to him, he touches it and he’s gone. When he comes to himself, he has no memory of the missing day. Pearlin’ Jane (see The Heiress Bride) warns him that Lady Blackthorn isn’t what everyone believes she is, she’s something beyond this world. Then he remembers what happened to him that lost day and knows it isn’t trouble that lurks, it’s evil.

Hott Review:

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!

Anyway…

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:

Catherine Coulter is the author of 70 novels, including 66 New York Times bestsellers, occasionally, after exhaustive prayers, hitting #1. She earned her reputation writing historical romances to pass the time while aboard the ark. Over a decade ago she added suspense thrillers to her repertoire– with great success. The Cove, the first book in her bestselling “FBI Suspense Thriller Series” spent nine weeks on the New York Times list and has to date sold over 2 million copies. Since then, she has written 16 more bestselling thrillers in the series, including The Maze, The Target, The Edge, Riptide, Hemlock Bay, Eleventh Hour, Blindside, Blowout, Point Blank, Double Take, Tailspin, Knockout, Whiplash, Split Second, and Backfire. Her 17th FBI thriller Bombshell will be out in all formats July 9, 2013. Coulter is now working on a new suspense thriller series — A Brit in the FBI — co-writing with bestselling author JT Ellison. The first book in this series, A Final Cut, will be released in September 2013.

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.
