When best selling horror novelist, David Masters, together with his sixteen year old daughter, Amber, move into Baudey House, a Victorian mansion with a violent and sordid past, it is because he is writing a book about it. Little did he know what would lie in wait for him in this beautifully restored home. Beneath its pristine veneer is a corruption so foul that even David Masters, a man who does not frighten easily, is terrified.

This is a haunted house story that will keep the reader turning the pages. With a well-thought out plot, interesting characters, and spooky eroticism combined with chilling horror, it is a highly entertaining book. Fans of haunted house stories will certainly enjoy this one. I couldn't put it down!

5.0 out of 5 stars No poodles were harmed during this story June 28 2004
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I just finished reading Haunted by Tamara Thorne. A horror writer and his daughter move into a (you guessed it!) haunted house on the California coast. The writer believes that the house will inspire him for his new book. Well, yeah, I guess it does. The house is haunted by an evil teenaged voodoo priestess prostitute (trust me, it works) who murdered a bunch of people and trapped their souls in a bunch of weird little anatomically-correct dolls that she made to look like her victims before she herself was murdered in 1915. Just to make things even more fun, her spirit can influence living people and possess some of them, and her presence is accompanied by the strong odors of jasmine and rotting flesh. Yay?
This book was a great ride and hard to put down. The characters were vivid and the story well-told. I love the way Tamara Thorne's mind works. She is one sick puppy with a weird sense of humor. Cool. Though it is a very real possibility that I will never wear jasmine again. Or rotting flesh, but that is another story entirely..... No poodles were harmed in this one (unlike her novel Bad Things) --- just real estate agents. And sailors. And some hippies. No poodles though.

4.0 out of 5 stars That's what I'm talking about! April 18 2004
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Loved the book! I kept thinking of Jeff Goldblum as "David Masters". The only reason I gave it four stars was because I didn't care for how the author did away with the man in black--he was so EVIL and could have done a lot more for the plot rather than getting rid of the annoying housekeeper! I'm a new Tamara Thorne fan!

5.0 out of 5 stars A Highly Entertaining Read Feb. 29 2004
Format:Mass Market Paperback
It's common knowledge that Baudy House is haunted, haunted by the ghost of Christabelle. Once a house of ill-repute it was the scene of two mass murders. Locals shun the place, but it is exactly what author David Masters is looking for to help inspire him to write his next big horror novel. Despite dire warnings about the house he moves to Baudy House with his reluctant daughter Amber. Almost immediately strange things begin to happen. Strange cold spots appear suddenly that threaten to envelope and suffocate both David and Amber. Christabelle also makes her prescence known with the sultry scent of jasmine, followed quickly by the rot of decay, and comes to taunt David in his dreams.
Christabelle has an unholy plan to resurrect herself and it is up to David and his friends to stop her, with a little help from the ghost of Christabelle's mother.
*******REVIEW: I loved this book. It really sucked me in and I stayed up into the wee hours of the morning just to finish this book. I found it very entertaining and eery. The voodoo aspect was a nice touch. Can't wait to read more of Ms. Thorne's books!

5.0 out of 5 stars Blood Curdling Fun Dec 26 2003
By Kona
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This book was fantastic. Among its few faults: too much unecessary sex, although that helped to drive home the idea of the villain's utter evilness; the main characters were hateful and annoying, however, some of the more minor, but still pivotal characters were basically what carried the story (Eric, for example was... wow). Perhaps one of Thorne's best books, 'Haunted' was well written, with a beleivable plot and several sub-stories going on that managed to still correspond with the overall idea. It started off as an attention grabber, and managed to maintain that throughout the duration of the story. Bonus with no extra charge: a pleasing ending!! Halleluja!
Buy this book. I can almost guaruntee you'll enjoy it. But if you insist on saving your money, at least borrow it from a friend or the library. It's THAT good.

As horror novels go this book rivals anything I have ever read. The style of writing is very engaging. Looking forward to my next Tamara Thorne book.

1.0 out of 5 stars Disappointed Nov. 10 2003
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I have to admit that I was very disappointed with the novel after reading the glowing reviews. This book was probably one of two books I have never finished. I just could not bring myself to complete it. I honestly found no character that pulled me in emotionally. Everyone seemed to be caricatures of one fault or another, including the father and daughter. In all honesty, my opinion of almost every book or movie rests with the abilty to care about at least one character. In this book, I found no one. I was turned off by every person in the story. And as for the chills, I did not see what the other reviewers saw.
I have never been one to put someone off of something. But this time I just had to write something down. Judging by all of the other reviews, I am in the extreme minority. I may give another of Tamara Thorne's novels a try. It may have just been this particular book.
