  2. Cannot say enough about how much I have enjoyed this series Ghost tales are not usually in my to read list, but the mysteries tied into old English folk songs appealed to me Deborah Grabien does not disappoint as each book in the series has been better than the last I have read them in order, but the stories don t build on each other so much that you would have to Summer in England, and with nothing urgent demanding their attention Ringan and Penny are planning a quiet vacation alone together Th [...]


  3.

  4. While I have enjoyed this series of haunted mysteries that have roots in old English folk songs and their stories, I have to say I m glad the series has ended The first couple were stellar and kept me turning page after page, but after a couple , it was fairly easy to see the formula and pattern for the stories and pretty much knew how they were going to turn out I love these characters and the author s way of writing that welcomes you right into the pages and makes you get totally lost in the p [...]


  5. I am a big fan of history and of music and these bring those loves together in a mystery that revolves around old ballads and how much of them are based in truth This one is 5 in the series so if you want to read them do it in order The research that must go into these is extensive and well placed in the narrative not too much and not too soon to spoil the mystery This one had a twist right at the very end that blew me away and now I think I have to go and re read them all again.


  6. I ve been a fan of this series since a friend introduced me to it, and am sad that this is the final story I find this series and its characters one I turn to when I want a comfort read I love the music references, and it being such an important part of the story, and that the characters are well educated and intelligent This story has a few twists and turns, and the ghosts aren t that easily ridden of, but that makes it a very satisfying read.


  7. She writes like she s Irish Not just the dialogue, but descriptions The use of the word, after It s a very pleasant read and a fascinating story line Makes me wonder what their concept of warm is in Cornwall and if it d be worth a summer trip there The people sound like just my type warm and nice, but blunt.


  8. I still like the characters, and the mystery was interesting, but like the previous book, the ending is a little weak nothing really happens to make the ghosts go away In the first three books, Ringan and Penny have to figure out how to exorcise them, in the last two they just have to let the scenarios play out while they find information about them There isn t a strong sense of closure.


  9. I m very sorry that this is the last book in the series of Haunted Ballad books After all, there are 301 Child Ballads alone A scary story with a Cornwall setting and a lot of descriptions of wonderful music.


  10. So sad that this is the last in the series I am really hoping that there will be another For me, these books just got better and betterLove Ringan and Penny and the whole cast of characters from all the books.


  11. main characters Penny Wintercraft Hawkes a theatre director, Ringan Laine a folk musician and architectural historian restoration consultant



  12. Better than the last one still delightfully spooky and meticulously detailed Can t wait for the next book to come out.


  13. Really enjoyed the setting in Cornwall And the way that it wasn t really done when the book was over It s a satisfying addition to the Haunted Ballad series.



  14. Deborah Grabien writes a series of current day mysteries based upon old Celtic ballads Very interesting and a fun read.
