"Eyre House" (a creepy Lexi review)


This is a warning that the following review is for a book that contains sex scenes. So, if not of appropriate age, don't read. Easy-peasy.

The book is Eyre House by Caitlyn Greer.

Summary (Yay, Goodreads!): "When eighteen-year-old orphan Evan Richardson signed up to work at Eyre House, on the sleepy tourist getaway of Edisto Island, SC, he never expected to find himself dodging ghosts. But Eyre House seems to have more than its fair share of things that go bump in the night, and most of them seem to surround his employer’s daughter.

Back from her freshman year of college, Ginny Eyre is dangerous from word one. She’s a bad girl with ghosts of her own, and trouble seems to follow her everywhere she goes. But living or dead, trouble isn’t just stalking Ginny. When her ex-boyfriend is found murdered in the pool, Evan knows he’s got two choices – figure out what’s going on, or become the next ghost to haunt Ginny Eyre."

I got into this because it was a retelling of Jane Eyre by Charlotte Bronte, but in a whole new way. For awhile, I thought it was going to be bad, but it wasn't at all. The sex scenes took me by surprise though, since it was under "YA/NA" and not under "Romance," lol. But the novel needed some steamy scenes. The author caught every feeling that one would in every situation there was. I am a big fan of this novel. If you want a twist or few, you've got it made with this novel. It'll keep you guessing throughout the novel!

In Conclusion: Read it! The author did a superb job in retelling this classic!
