“The Haunting of Maddy Clare” by Simone St. James
It's an interesting mystery though not terribly hard to figure out and there are scenes that are truly very creepy. The atmosphere created by the writing is one of unease and fright but I never turned against Maddy and like the protagonists, I wanted to see her get justice.

The book does misstep a bit towards the end and stray into eye-rolling territory in order to create some suspense. Sarah's surprise and horror when everything becomes clear is a little inauthentic as they seemed to have been having growing suspicions about what happened and by whom and they should have, as lots of evidence points that way. And despite there being imminent and mortal danger with time being of the essence, Sarah seems to have the time to stop and explain it all, step by step, Poirot style to one of the secondary characters.
Essentially the climax is just a tad sloppily and inexpertly done but it didn't truly mar my overall enjoyment of the book.
Since the book won a couple of romance awards, I feel like I should also comment on that aspect of the book. Simply put I liked it. It was very slowly and believably developed and there was good chemistry between the characters in question. While I enjoy the occasional romance novel where love is front and center, my favorite way to consume romance is as a secondary component to a strong plot and that is exactly what this book delivers.

I listened to the audio of the book and the reader is okay but she was the weakest part of the book for me. I do wish I had read rather than listened. She particularly struggled with the masculine voices. Obviously it wasn't too annoying since I still really liked the book but it wasn't great.
