Well Said: Old Houses in England

"It seems that there's a ghost," Nigel Smith-Thompson said with the air of a man who doesn't believe in such things. "Don't all old houses in England have a ghost?" Jace asked."

You know me lassies, I am a sucker for an old house, a ghost, and maybe some romance. Happy last day of August! I have my fingers crossed for a drop in temperature.

  1. old houses and ghost can't be separated I guess. When I was a boy, I was afraid of old abandoned house. People say, there's a ghost in such a house. Well, i don't really know whether it's true or not. =)

    Here's my teaser: http://coffeecrackers.blogspot.com/2010/08/teaser-tuesdays-book-of-lost-things.html

    And this is my latest review:

  7. Yes, all old houses should have at least one ghost - excellent teaser. I've not read Devereax before, though I know there are a couple by her in the TBR. One of these days... *g*

  32. I used to read Jude Devereaux in my younger days - hot and steamy love scenes, but still intriguing plots and heroines. It's September today and two of my kids are in school full time now - only the 2yo is home - can't believe how time flies.
