I was intrigued by the description of this book If there is something I really like is it haunted houses and I hoped that this book would entrance me.One thing I really liked is that the story takes place in the 60s It was a nice change from the usual contemporary settings that I m used to or books that take place late or early 19 century I love to read books where the story takes place during 50 70s and this book reminds me that I should try to do so often It s so nice to go back just a couple [...]
I ve never read a book set in the 60 s and wasn t sure if the setting would throw me off On the contrary Meyette added just enough pop icon references to keep the reader in the past, while creating rich characters and intriguing circumstances that would fit in any decade I loved Jesse, her independent spirit and her need to go it alone, right from the start I loved that Maggie was a nun who drank beer and got upset enough to swear All the single young men in this book to choose from swoon Joe an [...]
UPDATE I listened to the audio version of this novel, and it is well done Amy s voice is smooth and gentle in narration, and she does a good job with dialogue as well This is what I imagined Jesse s voice to be The audio is a welcome addition to the series, perfect for people who wish to listen to the story as opposed to reading it.I thoroughly enjoyed The Cavanaugh House I m a child of the 50s and 60s, and Ms Meyette took me back to the time of my youth with this atmospheric and well paced nove [...]
Very enjoyable ghostly mystery.
While the plot was pretty good, the execution leaves a lot to be desired The writing, especially the dialogue, is clunky and uninteresting, in addition to being sometimes inappropriate to the time period in which the story is set I had no clue if I was reading a novel set in the present, or years ago, due to the lack of cues regarding time and place in this novel The reveal of Jesse s father is no big surprise, as the answer is conveyed early on Quite frankly, this book suffers from an identity [...]
I ve been a fan of Ms Meyette s historical romances, and her latest foray into the world of suspense was also set in a historical period the 1960s I loved all the references to food of the era Charles Chips really took me back, along with Genesee Beer This book had a lot of suspense, but I was never in fear that the heroine wouldn t make it After all, she was named for Jesse James, one of the wildest of the wild west heroes I m a big fan of refurbishing old houses and of small towns, so I immedi [...]

3 stars means for me the book was entertaining, kept me reading, liked the characters and storyline but could have used some improvements Would be a 7 on 1 10 scaleThis book started out really good Jesse has a bad split up with her fianc and moves to the Cavanaugh House, in a small town, that was left to her by her aunt I enjoyed the character Jesse but did feel author was making her push feminism too hard that it started to make me groan Her aunt is the mystery and I figured out part of the mys [...]

Elizabeth Meyette continues to amaze me with her versatile writing skills The spine chilling epilogue grabbed by attention immediately I love Meyette s style Although her usual time period is much further back in history, her talent shines during any timeline I thoroughly enjoyed the thrill of the chase, not knowing who the bad guy was, and even suspecting our main character of mental instability I m also a sucker for a great ghost story and I was pleasantly rewarded here The paranormal twist ju [...]
An odd duck set written in the Sixties, so lots of jarring references to women s lib rather than the current terms feminist or feminism and how the main character objected because she felt strongly about women s rights Set me against the book from the beginning, the repeated male comments on women s lib and calling our protagonist little lady, and the intensity of her reactions, and her stridence and I was a Sixties feminist On to the central mystery Pretty predictable, with a ghost added, but w [...]
THE CAVANAUGH HOUSEby Elizabeth MeyettWhile not my normal cozy mystery read, THE CAVANAUGH HOUSE is a wonderful story from beginning to end It had plenty of mystery and intrigue to keep me turning the pages I feel most readers of my blog will enjoy it very much.Author Meyeete set this book in the 60s, which is a nice change of pace There are beautiful surroundings, a creepy, rundown fixer upper, and well written characters And for readers who like a little paranormal in your stories, you ll find [...]
I enjoyed this mystery suspense but it doesn t make My Favorites shelf It was a clean read with just scattered mild swears and a sweet romance, and a great fun friendship between the protagonist and a nun, but after all the build up and suspense to the mystery, the solution felt like it was to another book Character s behavior in the end were implausible and did not make sense, so the ending felt really odd.I did like the characters and the writing well enough to want to try the sequel Buried Se [...]
I couldn t tell you why i even finished this It was predictable, formulaic and bordered on juvenile Halfway through the book, I was just skimming through, mostly to make sure I was right and there wasn t anything happening that I didn t expect to happen I wasn t surprised.
It kept my interest but both the story and the writing were amateurish.
GreatGreatEnjoyed the mysteries the ghosts and the fact that Jesse found out the answers full of surprises till the endingEnjoyed the way the story
Suffering from a broken engagement, Jesse Graham has left Rochester for the North Lakes area of New York, taking a job at the local nun run school and living in the Cavanaugh house, a place left to her by her deceased aunt Helen Arriving there, she first has to make the house livable and Joe Riley is there to offer a helping hand, and perhaps if Jesse is interested Secrets about her aunt Helen and her own past start to emerge and someone doesn t want those secrets brought to light Jesse is in d [...]
Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend If so, why I would most certainly recommend this audiobook It was a story that sucked me in right from the beginning I was a little apprehensive about whether I would enjoy listen to the book But before the first chapter was over I was hooked and hated having to stop in order to let reality take over.What did you like best about this story The best part of the story was getting to know the main character Jesse Graham and following her as a mystery i [...]
I really enjoyed this book Meyette delivers the epitome of the term cozy mystery I was hooked from the moment I started the book and the mystery began to unfold There is the perfect mix of character development, intriguing mystery and paranormal Jesse is someone I can see myself having a beer with, even despite the time zone difference of half a century give or take She s fun, stubborn and goes with her gut, my type of girl My only gripe with Jesse is that she seems to garner the affection of al [...]
This book wasn t what I expected, but I enjoyed it Well written and beautiful ending Can t wait to read the sequel to this book.After finding out her fianc is cheating on her, Jesse Graham moves away from it all to the house she inherited from her Aunt Helen Only to find it dilapidated Upon arriving, she meets Joe, who tells her the house is haunted and his mother, Susan, who tells her the truth about her aunt s death It was no accident like her mother said Now, Jesse is determined to find out t [...]
Predictable and boring The jokes weren t like real jokes People were laughing at things that I would raise an eyebrow at why they were laughing til they cried It didn t feel like it knew what kind of book it wanted to be Romance, ghost story, mystery it was trying to be all and wasn t good at any of it I don t even know why I finished the book I guess just to get the resolution even if it wasn t surprising at all.
EhhhI was certainly not hooked on reading this book, it was ok but overall just kind of boring My biggest question was figuring out the timeline she left her fiance at 21 but was born in 1940 and it is 1968 Is she 21 28 Several times in the book left me curious as to her age.
Great story Thoroughly enjoyed this book Have read many ghost stories, but this author did a great job of character building the ghost Excited to see from this author in the future.
I was debating between 3 stars and 4 I enjoyed this story, though the writing was a little simplistic However, I do enjoy a ghost story, and the setting being in the 60 s was unique I would recommend this book, if a reader is looking for a cozy mystery type of book.
I really liked this book It held my interest from the beginning until the very end I loved Jesse and her great sense of humor I wish the ghostly occurrences would have been frequent throughout the book A great, fun read.
Decent story line Goes on a little too long
4.75 Stars It was a good mystery, clean, with likable characters and a little romance I would read books by this author.
Loved it.This book is awesome Its a wonderful mix of romance, suspense, and who done it Great characters and storyline will keep you captivated Look forward to the sequel
