Changing Expectations June 2 2013
By Victoria - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
The Widow's Walk won't turn out the way you expect, but, then, what you expect will change at least three or four times before the end of the book. The writing is tight and the characters are vivid; there is a somewhat large cast of residents in the book's small-town setting, but there are never any moments of "who was that guy again?" You remember.

The book's pacing gets steadily faster. I try to read at least a chapter whenever I sit down to read, so I definitely noticed -- at the beginning, I stopped every chapter and picked up again a little later. By the middle, I had to read two chapters at a time to walk away comfortably, and by the final chapters I was breezing through as fast as I could.

The atmosphere is excellent. Christine does 'spooky' very well and doesn't rely on any cheap thrills or dangling a monster in front of the reader to make things scary. Erin is perfectly capable of scaring herself out of her wits without much help, and she will happily take you with her for the ride.

I will say the book is not a typical horror or ghost story; it's built up more around superstition and the power of small-town lore, and Christine uses both to good effect. I could be wrong, though; there's a thing or two by the end that just can't quite be explained...
Good kind of creepy March 22 2013
By M. Shade - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
The Widow's Walk has just the right mix of love, lust, horror and humor to make it a real page turner. Not a deep philosophical read, but a fun, chills-up-your-spine story, at which Morgan excels. Enjoy it! (with all the house lights on, maybe...)
Widow's Walk March 5 2012
By Melanie Johnston - Published on Amazon.com

I absolutely loved reading this book - it was fun to read, with interesting, well-developed characters, a great plot, and a vivid setting. The story had enough foreshadowing that you knew that something bad was coming, but also with enough plot twists that it was in no way predictable.

Definitely a creepy tale, the best kind! If you enjoy ghost stories, then this one is a must-read.
Have a little creepy with your Urban Legend... Jan. 5 2012
By Khinasi - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Everyone's heard about it. The ghost that walks the halls of the university 3 nights a year. The local stretch of road that's a magnet for wrecks. Or the cursed house...

It's that house, the whispers say. Terrible things happen. People go crazy. And then the plot REALLY gets moving!

It's a fun read, with enough twists to make a hairpin turns jealous.
