#Review of The Haunting of Hattie Hastings by Audrey Davis @audbyname @rararesources

Today I am delighted to be taking part in the publication day celebrations for The Haunting of Hattie Hastings by Audrey Davis!!  I am sure you will want to wish her a happy publication day with me!

The Haunitng of Hattie Hastings

 

Some people just won’t take death lying down … ! 

Part one of a fun-filled trilogy about life, death and letting go.

Hattie Hastings is happily married, even if husband Gary drives her up the wall at times.  When tragedy strikes, she is left alone and heartbroken with only an assortment of family and friends to prop her up.

Struggling to cope, she is left reeling when her deceased other half returns, popping up at the most inappropriate times.

Hattie can’t convince anyone that Gary has returned. Not even her best friend Cat – not free from the cruel and controlling Stewart – will believe her.

Why has Gary returned?  And what will Cat do when her slimy ex-husband tries to worm his way back into her affections?

The Haunting of Hattie Hastings will make you laugh, cry and count down until Part Two…

 

MY REVIEW

When I read the blurb for this book I was intrigued, I wanted to know more and see what the book was all about as it sounded a promising read – well I certainly wasn’t disappointed and it was a great read!

It is genuinely funny in places and I found myself laughing at some of the lines – considering the subject matter which could make the book one of a completely different genre, it is actually really a fun read!  One that can easily cheer you up if you are feeling down or in need of a pick me up or even a mini boost.

Well now I’ve read this one, I can’t wait for part two, it does leave you wanting more and I for one need to see where the story is going to go!!  5 stars from me and very much looking forward to the next one!

ABOUT THE AUTHOR

Scottish-born Audrey studied journalism in Edinburgh more decades ago than she cares to admit. She cut her writing teeth on provincial newspapers (using a typewriter) and a London-based video magazine (another sign of her advanced years). FBprofilepic

Engagement to her now-husband Bill took them to Singapore, Australia and Buckinghamshire, England, before they settled in Switzerland in 2002. Along the way they had two boys, both all grown-up and living in the UK.

Her journey to becoming a published author began with an online Writing Fiction course. It took well over a year but, in June 2017, Audrey published her debut romantic comedy novel, A Clean Sweep. It was quickly followed by a shorter and darker prequel, A Clean Break.

The idea for The Haunting of Hattie Hastings came from nowhere, just a random title that popped into her head and from there grew into Part One of a trilogy. It comes under the same genre, but has some poignant scenes and – hopefully – lots of laughs! Audrey admits to being a worrier, and has always used humour as a defence mechanism, as her friends will attest.

When Audrey isn’t writing, she loves shows like The Walking Dead, American Horror Story and Strictly Come Dancing (a strange mix, she knows). Her interests include cooking (and eating pretty much anything apart from oysters), travelling and going to the gym. OK, the last one is mainly to compensate for her passion for food!

Audrey would describe herself as a ‘pantser’ rather than a ‘planner’, preferring to run where a story takes her and scribble copious notes along the way. She’d love to write a page-turning thriller, but fears her natural tendency to see the comic side of life might be an obstacle.
