Blog Tour: Morgan Hall by Bo Briar

Author: Bo Briar
Publisher: World Castle Publishing
Date of Publication: December 2011

Love never dies, and revenge never sleeps in Morgan Hall…

Morgan Hall, a desolate country estate, has been in Lady Christie Morgan’s family for almost 400 years. A family cursed by eternal tragedy, and now Christie is the last Morgan.
Apparitions appear, sparking a chain of horrifying occurrences involving Christie and the two men who love her: Anthony Longfield-Lothian and Tristan Ely.
A saga of mystery and sordid family history weaves intrigue for the passionate love triangle. Past and present war as the secrets of three aristocratic families unfold – resurfacing in a spine-chilling mystery of passion and lust, ghostly happenings, and blood-curdling murders.
Morgan Hall was a pretty quick read, especially when it sucked me right in and wouldn't let me put it down.  I really enjoyed the book.  It reminded me of an old, Gothic ghost story.  I kept forgetting that the book was set in modern times because it had an old fashioned feel to it.  Christie has moved back in her ancestral home.  When her childhood friend, Anthony and his friend Tristan come to visit, weird things start happening.  She is seeing people that aren't there and rooms in the house are getting trashed.  Is she crazy or is something else going on? 
The relationship between Christie and the guys was a little weird to me.  She is definitely torn between the two men, but I didn't feel the connection between her and Tristan at first.  Their affair was a little fast for me and I felt badly for Anthony.  I definitely don't want to give away too much because the end would be ruined with spoilers.  I loved the ending as it had a great and very creepy twist!
If you are in the mood for a great creepy novel, then pick this one up!

Although having a natural affinity for the countryside Bo lived most of her life between the big cities of London and Hong Kong. Though widely travelled, she will always return to the two cities she calls home.
Her love for writing began at university where she would often diverge from composing dissertations to creating spooky stories.
