Thank you to NetGalley and the publisher for an ARC of this book. This was not the book I an anticipating reading. The synopsis tricked me. This is actually a historical fiction, paranormal, mystery, romance book. I thought it was going to be more paranormal mystery with a little hint of romance. This is also the second book of the series and I did not read the first book in the series. I felt that I was able to understand what was going on for the current day but had no idea what happened in the past and it I wish I knew what happened so I could understand it more. Despite not having the back ground information I was not a fan of the writing style. It felt simplistic and disjointed at times. It did not keep my attention. The main thing I will remember about this book will be all the conversations regarding meat and their lack of it. I understand that it was a big part of their daily life but it was just mentioned way too many times for me. It drew me out of the story every time. If you like the your books to be a mash up of historical fiction, mystery, paranormal and romance then I am sure you will enjoy this book but you should read the first book in the series.

Sarah Bennett has just endured a trial where her father had been accused of murder. He was found not guilty much to her chagrin as she was the star witness. Hounded by the press she seeks someplace to hide-out until all the media madness dies down. She finds a job as a typist at the hospital of Dr. Matthew Geisler and his wife Bethany. Dr. Geisler has been treating people with mental illness and has become fascinated with the occult. He learns that Sarah has been hearing screaming and weeping. She thinks she is losing her mind but he feels these are signs she has certain powers to see and hear ghosts. Minna, one of the residence of the hospital believes she too can see ghosts and fears that her dead fiancé, Gregory, who happens to be Dr. Geisler's late brother is haunting her and warning her that something bad is going to happen to the doctor. In the meantime, Sarah discovers that her old flame Zeke who seemingly disappeared just before her father's trial is also staying at the hospital due to injuries he incurred from an "accident". Soon Sarah begins to see and hear spirits who are trying to tell her things she cannot quite grasp. She keeps hearing from Geisler's dead sister who insists her brother is in danger. She must solve the mystery of who would want to hurt the doctor and why, but also whoever it is are they from this world, or the hereafter? She must act quickly before there really is a murder. This book was a cozy, historical story with a little paranormal thrown in. An easy read with lots of suspense and surprises. The House of Secrets is Book 2 in the Sarah Bennett Mystery series. The first book is The Spirit of Grace. You can find both out now.
