Reread Review: Texas Gothic by Rosemary Clement-Moore
Summary from Goodreads:
Amy Goodnight knows that the world isn't as simple as it seems—she grew up surrounded by household spells and benevolent ghosts. But she also understands that "normal" doesn't mix with magic, and she's worked hard to build a wall between the two worlds. Not only to protect any hope of ever having a normal life.
Ranch-sitting for her aunt in Texas should be exactly that. Good old ordinary, uneventful hard work. Only, Amy and her sister, Phin, aren't alone. There's someone in the house with them—and it's not the living, breathing, amazingly hot cowboy from the ranch next door.
It's a ghost, and it's more powerful than the Goodnights and all their protective spells combined. It wants something from Amy, and none of her carefully built defenses can hold it back.
This is the summer when the wall between Amy's worlds is going to come crashing down.
I managed to snag this book for a $1 a few months ago and finally read it for the second time. Rosemary Clement-Moore is one of my favorite gothic fiction YA authors.
The author is great at creating characters, I really liked the main character Amy, her sister Phin, and their cousin Daisy (who is the main character in the second novel in this series).
I really love the whole idea of this book, and the others in this series, with the Goodnight family, and I hope that the author writes more about them.
I recommend checking out any of her books if you enjoy Gothic Lit.
Four Stars Out of Five.
