As a child, Torrie Reynolds entered the haunted Hargrove House on a dare. Terrified by what she'd heard while inside Hargrove House, she avoided it since. Now fifteen years later, Torrie is an interior decorator. When Will Dalton buys the infamous Hargrove House and offers Torrie the job of refurbishing it, she has no choice but to take the offer to keep her business afloat. As the house is restored and rooms come alive with character and color Torrie brings to them, her fear of the house fades. Hargrove House begins to even feel like home to her. With each finished renovation project, it is harder for Torrie to leave. It is even harder for her to leave the comfort of Will Dalton's arms. But she discovers there are things more terrifying than ghosts when she learns why Will is digging in the dark, frightening cellar.

My thoughts:

Torrie stepped into the Hargrove House when she was a teenager on a dare and it spoke her name. After that she has always had a fear of the house, but not she has been asked to oversea the decorating and restoration of the house from it’s new owner Will Dalton.

There is something strange about Will Dalton, but he has no fear of the house and actually lives there. Torrie can’t help but be drawn to Will and it’s not like he is trying to keep things on a professional level as he keeps holding her hand, etc. Though she knows something is a bit off, someone is digging in the cellar and she is pretty sure it’s Will. But why would he be digging in the cellar.

There there are his children, it’s like one day they just showed up and he never mentioned having kids before. Torrie gets mad at first but then it seems like all he has to do is kiss her and she forgets why she was mad. The whole time I am reading this I am thinking something is just not right…this family is way strange.

Hargrove House was an interesting and strange romantic read and not really at all what I was expecting. The more you get into the story the stranger it becomes and to be honest I don’t think I can say much without giving the plot away.

I sort of guessed what was going on but the ending still sort of took me by surprise, but over all I liked the story. It was a different type of romance. 🙂

  1. Hmm I have read two reviews now that are not exactly stellar for this book. I don’t know. I think I will probably pass, but thanks for sharing 🙂
