About the author-
Georgina Hannan

Georgina Hannan grew up in Surrey, England. She loved school and spending her free time with her friends and family.

She wrote her first story when she was fourteen (unpublished) and has always had a love of writing.

'Cursed' was inspired by a brief day trip to the Dartmoor area. It was on this trip Georgina became enthralled by the area and an idea was sparked.

Georgina is a full time I.T Consultant and so spends her free time juggling writing and see family and friends.

I will personally rate this book 4 stars.
I received this ebook for an honest review, my opinions are my own.

This is a very suspenseful read!
I usually can't handle a whole lot of scary, believe it or not I still get afraid of the dark!
This one, has enough of a love story pull to offset the too scary part for me.
If you love a good scare based on local lore, this is a must read for you!
Due to the mature content of the book, it shouldn't be read by younger readers.
The story follows a set of 4 friends as they go on holiday after school.  They are there for some R&R but they end up learning first hand about the local legends and the danger of the paranormal.
The romance between the characters is also pained by the activity on the area and we really wonder if they can put aside their fear to allow love to grow!
There are a couple of scenes that made me want to hide under the covers! Absolutely scary since it was based on real legends.  A great read!
Don't read it in the dark!!
