Synopsis

A New York Times Bestselling Author

When Ike Grantham paid her for her graphic design work with a run-down nineteenth-century carriage house on Boston's North Shore, and then disappeared, Tess found herself with much more than a weekend project. It's not just the rumors that the house is haunted. It's the neighbors: six-year-old Dolly, her reclusive babysitter, and her father, Andrew Thorne, who has his own ideas about why Tess has turned up next door.

Available only in Americana 4 & 5.

  • Carla Neggers
    From Amazon

    This is one of the first Carla Neggers books I ever read. I like it so much I loaned it to a friend, who loaned it to someone else, and soon it was gone. I had to buy another copy. I loved it just as much the second time! If you like a good romantic suspense novel that keeps your interest until the very last page, you've found the right author...She never disappoints!

Sorry you got to read this story to find out the rest :)

  • I enjoyed it...
    From Amazon

    This is the first in a series of four & I really enjoyed it. I loved most of the people & they had me laughing many times. I can't wait to see more of them in the rest of the series. My only complaint is that there weren't really any surprises. You were basically told from the start who the dead body was & who the killer was. I kept thinking we'd be thrown for a loop at the end & what we'd been assuming the whole books wasn't really what we though after all but that never happened. Although I like guessing who the killer is from little hints here & there I don't want it to be flat out told to me. Where's the suspense? I would recommend this book.

  • Good start and then faded into boredom
    From Amazon

    I have read two other books by Carla Neggers, On Fire and Night Scents, both were romantic and fairly suspenseful but what appealed to me the most was that they were well written. The Carriage House started out pretty well and I was excited to start another of her books but several chapters into the book I noticed a big change; the characters had turned to cardboard and most of what they said was stupid and forced. The romance and the suspense had turned to pure boredom. I started wondering if Carla had written the first few chapters and someone else had finished to book for her. It just wasn't the same caliber of author from the first two books I had read.

  • This book started great, but then it went to the dumps.
    From Amazon

    When a person finds a dead body in the basement, you call the police. I can not believe that Tess did not do that. After that the book seemed to go down hill. I figured out that Ike was the skeleton and who had killed him before I was even half way through the book.
    I did enjoy the interactions of the characters to each other. I really enjoyed Dolly Thorne's daughter, the little princess. I like that Tess was not any wimp by any standards, and the fact that she was not perfect in figuring out the mystery. I would not recommend this book for the suspense, but I would recommend this book as a good romance.
