‘As ghost stories go, this one is as spinetingling as any I have ever read with the perfect amount of scare factor through some vivid descriptions and a well-written story. It starts in 1936, setting some of the scenes before skipping ahead to current times. It is a good story and fans of the paranormal will enjoy it.’

‘There are some truly spooky moments in Haunting in Hartley. Early on we are introduced to a child murder that is continuously referenced throughout the book. When the six-year-old ghost shows up to assist in some supplemental haunting I couldn’t help but squirm away from the images. I mean, what’s scarier than a child ghost? Not a lot. In the midst of a mental battle with the phantom, Clarisse gets an inside look at the moment of the child’s death. It was at the hands of a priest who was supposed to protect the boy. It’s a gut-punch of a scene and I saw how effective Haunting in Hartley could be. The book has a few great moments of the grotesque like this one.’
Joseph Edwin Haeger, Independent Book Review
‘Australian author Janice Tremayne has explored and understands cultural superstitions and their impact on our lives. She is originally from South-East Asia and now lives in Melbourne, Australia. Her HAUNTING CLARICE SERIES, of which HAUNTING IN HARTLEY is Book 2, offers strong evidence that Janice is an important emerging author of the paranormal/ghost/supernatural genre.’
