Halloween Spooktacular Day 13

Hello everyone and welcome to my contribution to the Halloween Spooktacular.

I love suspense and I’ll admit to watching a handful of scary movies over the years (usually with my feet off the floor and my eyes covered) - but I really don’t like to be scared.

When I was a girl, my mother and sister would hide and jump out at me all the time - all in fun - until I told them it made my heart hurt.  So - no terrifying stuff for me.  I like the lighter/funnier side of Halloween.

With that in mind, I have a book up for grabs:

The Remarkable Miss Frankenstein by Minda Webber.

Book Blurb:

The problem, Clair realized, was that she was a Frankenstein.  Her uncle’s fame - he’d created her cousin Frederick from a bunch of spare parts - was a grave matter.  Everyone in the family was a success, while all she’d managed was a humiliating misadventure with pigs.  But her spirits were rising.

The Journal of Scientific Discovery was promising to publish a paper on the Discovery of the Decade, and she had a doozy.  She simply had to prove Baron Huntsley - a man of distinction, man of renown, man about town - was a vampire.

With his midnight black hair, soul-piercing eyes and shiny white teeth, what else could he be?  Oh yes, the baron wanted a bite of her or she was no scientist.  And then there were all those other monsters.  You’d never expect so many in 1828 London!  Pretty soon she’d expose them all, and on everybody’s lips would be...

The Remarkable Miss Frankenstein.

I like watching scary movies even though I hate being scared too. That's probably why I am covering my eyes for half of the movie :)

I don't like scary. I'll also stick with the lighter side. The blurb sounds very interesting and I'd love to read this and see what happens with Miss Frankenstein. GFC name is Lucky47
