Thanks for stopping by! I’m delighted to be taking part in the tour for As the Moon Fell Down by L. B. Stimson and sharing my review today. With thanks to Zoé at Zooloo’s Book Tours for the invite to join the tour and to the author for my copy. First things first let’s take a look at the description for the book…
In the spring of 1982, photographer Ellie Spaulding conned her way into the perfect setting to complete her upcoming gallery show; a secluded farmhouse in rural Virginia.
There were only two rules to follow. She soon learns the house is keeping secrets and those dwelling within it have been waiting for someone to expose them.
Once again, L.B. Stimson has created a terrifying ghostly tale inspired by her own haunting experiences. Readers will find themselves immersed in the lives of both the living and the dead as the veil is broken, worlds collide, and secrets are revealed.
As the Moon Fell Down is a great read for Halloween or for wrapping up under a blanket in the colder months as the story pulls you in with a haunting edge. The reader is introduced to Ellie as she house sits in rural Virginia, she is given certain rules to follow but it isn’t long before mysterious occurrences begin. Ellie was an interesting character and I liked how she had her flaws as it gave her a realistic edge. Although there were plenty of times where I was sat reading thinking she needed to get out of there!
The setting was great and provided an atmospheric edge. The rural setting also helped to build up the suspense as Ellie gets pulled into secrets and a past that doesn’t want to stay hidden. This story was an intriguing read and one that had me wondering what would happen next. This all combined with a creeping build up as Ellie experienced ghostly moments that gain momentum in their intensity. In As the Moon Fell Down there is a mystery, secrets and a paranormal edge.
L.B. grew up in a one stop-light town in central Idaho. After earning a Bachelor of Art’s degree in cultural anthropology from California State University-Chico, she uprooted herself to begin a new life in Washington, D.C., where she began a varied career in professional communications in private business and education.
“I’ve always had a passion for photography, travel, writing, and history. I am thrilled to now be creating works of fiction that allow me to share these passions with others. One of my favorite parts of the writing process is the historical research required to bring authenticity to my characters’ lives.”
This is her fifth book and the second in her standalone series: Tales from the Parlor Room–a collection of gothic and ghostly tales.
She currently resides in Virginia where she enjoys cemetery walks, visiting abandoned and haunted places and working on more ghostly tales.
