Autumn is on the horizon, the perfect time to indulge in a good read with a touch of the supernatural. Ghost stories help celebrate the season, but those with an element of mystery and/or romance are especially seductive. Similar to a paranormal romance (think vampires and werewolves) these titles are wrapped up with an “otherworldly” undercurrent.
Because they don’t fall as a whole into one distinct category (there’s an overlapping of genres going on here) they appeal to lots of different readers. Why do people love them? They’re passionate, arcane, and just plain fun!
