THE LETTER by Marianne Spitzer Review & Giveaway

Kellie, a young college grad laid off from her first teaching job and besieged by creditors, receives a letter requesting her appearance at the reading of Frederick Malone’s will. What could she have in common with the town’s richest man? Curiosity draws her to the will reading where she learns she has inherited a vast sum. The conditions of her inheritance require she change her name and reside in the Malone mansion. Long considered haunted by the residents of Malone Springs, Kellie, her fiancĂ© and four friends move in ignoring the rumors. Strange and frightening events begin to plague Kellie before she moves and grow more frightening once she and her friends settle in. Adopted at birth, her adoptive parents killed in an auto accident leave Kellie to investigate her ancestors on her own. What she discovers leads her into more danger and mystery as she learns the true nature of her biological grandfather. Could his evil deeds hurt her from beyond the grave? Who’s responsible for the strange occurrences? What happened to her biological parents? As one solved mystery leads Kellie into another, she and her friends try to solve them all before tragedy strikes.

Like most college graduates, they usually owe a lot of money to pay off their education.  Kellie is no different, so when she receives a vast inheritance out of the blue, she doesn't hesitate to agree to it's conditions.

She must reside in the mansion and change her name.  No problem, except there are many rumors abounding about the haunted home.  Rumors are just that, rumors, until strange things begin to happen.  Kellie begins to investigate her past and that of her biological family, since she had been adopted.  As the investigation unfolds and the strange occurrences accellerrate, Kellie knows she needs to figure it out quick before something tragic happens to herself or one of her friends.

Although the pace was good, the writing fell a bit short for me.  I got the gist of every scenario though and the plot did keep me riveted, trying to figure everything out before Kellie.  I was successful in some instances, but not all.  If you enjoy a solid plot with a twist of thrilling suspense, pick up The Letter.  I did enjoy it and it was a quick read.

The old grey donkey, Eeyore stood by himself in a thistly corner of the Forest, his front feet well apart, his head on one side, and thought about things. Sometimes he thought sadly to himself, "Why?" and sometimes he thought, "Wherefore?" and sometimes he thought, "Inasmuch as which?" and sometimes he didn't quite know what he was thinking about.
