My Review: 

Rachel McAllister has just woken from a two-year coma. Rachel is having some very horrific nightmares that may be a result of her accident. Rachel’s parents think that she needs to get away and spend some time on the lake so they buy an old house on the lake.

We first learned of Rachel and Ben’s fate in the first book that ends in a very dark tragedy for them in The Lake Has Eyes, their tragic story continues with the second book, The Dark Shadow. The Lady Of The Lake, the third and final installment of The Haunting of Bridge Manor: The Trilogy continues to be more and more dark, eerie and so very spooky.

I can just see it all playing out in my head. As I have said before The Haunting of Bridge Manor trilogy reminds me a great deal of Nancy Drew on The CW.

The Haunting of Bridge Manor trilogy gives you that creepy eerie feeling like that of The Haunting of Hill House and The Haunting of Bly Manor.

I would recommend The Haunting of Bridge Manor: The Trilogy to all ghosts fans! One-click your copy of this eerie ghosts story, The Haunting of Bridge Manor: The Trilogy today for a scary good time!

Blurb:


A mysterious house, a lake shrouded in secrets, and a malicious spirit on the hunt…

When Rachel arrives at the dilapidated Bridge Manor, she knew something was wrong. The run-down house and its eerie, ominous-looking lake gave her the creeps – no matter how much her parents tried to convince her it only needed repairs and a fresh coat of paint.

Entangled in a web of malicious spirits and horrifying happenings, Rachel must use all of her wits and bravery to rescue herself, her brother, and her parents before they fall prey to the spirits haunting the lake.

Can Rachel manage to convince her family that the stories behind Bridge Manor are true? Or will the Lady of the Lake claim her next victims?

Artfully blending a ghost story with a dash of horror and suspense, The Lake Has Eyes is a chilling and memorable tale that is perfect for fans of all things paranormal.

My Review:

Rachel McAllister has just woken from a two-year coma. Rachel is having some very horrific nightmares that may be a result of her accident. Rachel’s parents think that she needs to get away and spend some time on the lake so they buy an old house on the lake.

Rachel is just trying to get back to the relationship she had with her family before her accident. When they arrive at Bridge Manor's house Rachel’s nightmares become stronger and scarier. She also starts to see some very strange things around the house. Some very strange things start to happen around the house that no one can explain or will admit to.

Rachel tries explaining to her parents what is happening and all the strange things she is seeing but they don’t believe her. Rachel decides to do her own investigation into the house and its background.

After Rachel learns the history behind the house and about the lady in the lake things start to turn dark and eerie. A ghost is after Rachel, why she has no idea. But she will fight to the end to save her family. Can she save her family from the sinister things that are happening at the lake? Can she make her family believe her before things take a turn for the worse?

The Lake Has Eyes has a very dark eerie and sinister feel to it. The Lake Has Eyes gives you that creepy eerie feeling like that of The Haunting of Hill House and The Haunting of Bly Manor. There were times when I felt like I was right there beside Rachel walking down the halls of the Bridge Manor house seeing and hearing everything she was experiencing.

I can’t wait to dive into the next book in The Haunting of Bridge Manor, The Dark Shadow. I can’t wait to see where the story goes from here. I can’t wait to find out more history on Bridge Manor and its occupants.

My Review:

The Haunting of Bridge Manor continues with Rachael and Ben’s story in The Dark Shadow. Rachel and Ben have been taken in by their Aunt Christine and are now living in Chicago with her.

Rachel and Ben are still reeling from that tragic last night at the lake with their parents at Bridge Manor.

Rachel is having some very horrific nightmares that seem so real. Rachel is being visited by the lady at the lake. Rachel thinks the lady at the lake wants her dead.

After the tragedy at the lake Ben now has himself a couple of imaginary friends. Friends that are getting him into trouble at school. Ben is being accused of taking things that don’t belong to him and then blaming it all on his imaginary friends. Is the tragedy of that awful night causing Ben to act out and do things he would never have done before?

Are Rachel’s nightmares real? Are Ben’s imaginary friends real? The answers remain between the pages of The Dark Shadow. To learn the fate of Ben and Rachel and their tragic story look for the answers to these questions and more in The Dark Shadow.

We first learned of Rachel and Ben’s fate in the first book that ends in a very dark tragedy for them in The Lake Has Eyes, their tragic story continues with the second book, The Dark Shadow I am very anxious to continue Rachel and Ben’s story in the third and final installment of in The Haunting of Bridge Manor trilogy.

The Dark Shadow was just as engaging as its predecessor The Lake Has Eyes where Ben and Rachel’s story ramps up becoming more eerie and spooky. The descriptions were even more vivid than they were in The Lake Has Eyes. It was so very easy to picture Rachel and the lady at the lake as if I was there seeing it with my own eyes. The Haunting of Bridge Manor trilogy reminds me a lot of the new Nancy Drew on The CW in so many ways.

My Review:

The Lady Of The Lake is the third and final installment of The Haunting of Bridge Manor trilogy. The Lady Of The Lake picks up where The Dark Shadow left off. Rachel is missing. Ben knows where she is. Ben is having a hard time making anyone believe him. Aunt Christine thinks Ben is having a hard time dealing with the tragedy at the lake on the night his parents died.

The Lady Of The Lake continues to be more and more dark, eerie and so very spooky. I can just see it all playing out in my head. As I have said before The Haunting of Bridge Manor trilogy reminds me a great deal of Nancy Drew on The CW.

No matter where the lady on the lake happens to be I see her in a white dress blowing in the wind. She is being swallowed up by the darkness like she is on a moor or something to that effect. The fog swirled around her in the darkness while tramping in mud.

The Lady Of The Lake also gives us more insight into the curse of Bridge Manor and its history down through the years. The Lady Of The Lake goes back and forth from the beginning of Bridge Manor and how it came to be all the way up to Rachel and Ben’s story.
