Review - Ruby Hill

From her earliest memories, Ashley Pearce has been drawn to Ruby Hill Lunatic Asylum, and she's not the only one. Decades after the abandoned hospital ended its institutional reign of torture and neglect, something lurks in the shadows. Since she’s a paranormal investigator, it's Ashley's job to find out what.

Crime scene expert Corbin Malone doesn't believe in ghosts. A born skeptic, he has no interest in entertaining the hype surrounding the mysterious deaths at Ruby Hill, but he won't turn his back while more women die. He agrees to an overnight investigation, never expecting his first encounter would be with the woman he pushed away a year ago. But when he discovers Ashley is a target, he learns his greatest fear isn't living with his own demons, but losing her for good.

My review:

A great spooky story that takes place in a haunted asylum with perfect timing to read for Halloween.

Corbin doesnt believe in ghosts.  But there have been some mysterious killings in the Ruby Hill Asylum.  Determined to catch the killer he agrees to go along with a paranormal investigation hoping to draw him out and prove ghosts do not exist and can not have killed the women found dead within its walls.

Ashley is a paranormal investigator and based on family history has been drawn to the Asylum.  She is determined to find its secrets and prove that ghosts exist but that they did not kill the women murdered.  She also has a history with Corbin and her belief in the supernatural has  come between them.

The story was a quick suspenseful read.  You get just enough of the character background to care about what happens to them and hope they figure out a way to be together and happy while catching the killer to keep more people from being murdered.  Each has to face their own truths and figure out what they believe in and how it connects to the old asylum and those that have recently been found dead inside its walls.  How is it all connected and can they solve the mystery.  You will have to read and find out.
