I love and have always loved reading. I usually read one at once but at times I will read two. I have a book end which states 'Caution! Bookworms bite when disturbed.

Help for the Haunted

Help for the Haunted - John Searles

Help for the Haunted was nothing like I expected it to be but I really enjoyed it. Narrated by Sylvia, the youngest daughter it is a mixture of trying to come to terms with her parents murder, adapting to her new life with her sister as a guardian and their life growing up with her parents who have a different career to most.
I loved Sylvie, had sympathy for Rose who was very much the black sheep of the family and I'm really glad that I didn't have to spend any time with Penny!
I really had no idea who the murderer was, guessing at nearly everybody featured in the novel.
I would definitely read more by John Searles in the future.

Thanks to the author and the publisher for the copy via NetGalley.
