Remy Galway and her daughter Olivia are rebuilding their life after a failed marriage in a 300 year old cottage in historic Cold Spring Harbor, Long Island. Little do they know, another occupant is lurking in the haven of their own home. Will the After House be their shelter or their tomb?





I chose to read this book after receiving a free e-copy. All opinions in this review are my own and completely unbiased.

The After House has a little bit of everything: historical fiction, romance, suspense, mystery, thriller, and ghosts. It begins about 300 years ago when Eli Gaspar was a whaler and his story is told throughout the book. He ends up being a ghost in the cottage that Remy Galway rents but it’s not clear until the end of the book how things turned out for him.

When Remy and her daughter Olivia move into the cottage, Olivia immediately knows that they’re not alone. Then strange things start happening and it appears that not only is the house haunted, but someone wants Remy out of the way. There’s so much going on in this book and yet the middle of it seemed to drag to me. The ending almost made up for it though.

I liked the characters of Remy, Olivia, and Eli. Hugh seemed a bit too good although I did enjoy the Hugh/Who? conversation. I would have liked his character to be developed further. Also, I was confused about who the angel and apprentice were until close to the end.

The information about whalers and whaling was interesting and I enjoyed reading about it and Eli.

    I’ve read most of Michael’s books and he never fails to entertain me.

      This is the first one I’ve read but I’m hoping I have time to read more in the future.
