'Beyond the path' made me look over my shoulder a couple of times! Even if the relationship between Jackie and David is strained and not making this a better read. I did it in 3 sittings and that is fast for me! Simularly the hostile attitude from the receptionist is not clear. Even with these negative elements (for me) I adored the the book short as it is. There are elements like hairpin opening of all kind of old locks and two girls digging 'a few meters' that don't ring quite true, but the story is wellwritten to overcome glitches like that. A very recomandible read for those not araid of the dark!

Ok so I absolutely adored this read!! To me this is a Historical Romance, Love and Ghost Story all rolled into one. I sat down early Saturday morning coffee and Nook in hand and it was off to the races. Did not stop until I was done. Well maybe to get more coffee. The tale starts out with a lover's getaway to a quaint bed and breakfast. They offer activities and one of them is a ghost walk in the nearby local cemetery. Well Jackie and David decide to check it out, not really believing any of the nonsense of a murder/suicide of a prominent gentleman's wife and his lover back so many years ago. Strange winds and shadows and time loss starts happening to Jackie, who by the way is a mystery writer by trade. So after the "walk" Jackie tries to get information from the townsfolk regarding the old tale, but of course, no one wants to talk about it. Until finally Jackie finds and ally to help her investigate and try to solve all of the strange ghostly visits and information . You must read this wonderful tale and see what happens! It just so happens that Halloween is around the corner and this story fits in perfectly. I received this book free for an honest review. ( )

The hardest part about writing a good old-fashioned horrific ghost story, I imagine, would be ending it. We've all read books where the ghost was banished too easily, or the story became too cheesy for words, or in some way the climax became a let-down rather than a keep-me-up-reading-all-night. This book does not suffer from that complaint. If the main characters had been more likeable, and if the proofreading had been more thorough, this novella would have been a five-star story.
Note that I received a free copy of this novella through the Library Thing Member Giveaway program in exchange for an honest review.
