The Widow of Saunders Creek by Tracey Bateman












I've read a few other books with a supernatural twist by Tracey Bateman, so I was interested in reading The Widow of Saunders Creek. 

Corrie is mourning the death of her husband, a soldier in Iraq. She moves to his old home place- a home he inherited from his grandmother. In the home, she begins to think she is experiencing Jarrod's ghost. But Eli, Jarrod's cousin and a pastor, is convinced that what she is experiencing is not a ghost but is a demon. Corrie struggles with accepting the new truths Eli is trying to teach her as well as admitting her growing attraction for him.

I really enjoyed this one. Corrie and Eli were good characters and interestingly developed. The supernatural story line was deep enough to make you think but not scary. I think there is a fine line to walk in a novel- exploring the supernatural realm that is definitely present,but not delving into places that we shouldn't go.  I thought Tracey Bateman did a good job of that in The Widow of Saunders Creek.

I give this one a 4 star rating and a PG rating for content.

I received a free copy of this book for review purposes. All opinions expressed are entirely my own.
