The Blurb: The hills and hollows — and cities — of the Bluegrass State offer excellent opportunities for the ghost hunter. Guide Patti Starr leads readers on a tour of 30 legendary haunted spaces in Kentucky. She snoops around creepy farmhouses and grim garrets, eerie rooms and dark corners, exposing the ghosts and recording first-hand accounts of terrifying encounters. Clear maps and photographs help readers locate each dire destination, while more sensitive souls can enjoy experiencing these visits from the other side from the safety of their armchair.
My Review: Ghosthunting Kentucky is packed full of haunts and ghost galore. I myself am a huge fan of ghost hunting! I would love to tour some of these stops myself someday. I really enjoyed learning some of the history behind the hauntings. Some of the stops really had me wondering if it was truly haunted or just tricks of the mind and others left me with chills and goosebumps wanting to know more about the history behind it. If you are into ghost and the paranormal with a sslight history lesson well than this is the book for you! Grab a copy sit back and enjoy try not to get to frightened by what maybe lurking in the shadows. I know I enjoyed reading this book and look forward to reading more!
