5.0 out of 5 stars Must read masterpiece!
By KL on August 17, 2021
This author never fails to put me in a major book hangover with her every new release, and Haunting Adeline is no exception.

I can sit on this review forever but I still won’t find words to describe what an absolute masterpiece this book is! I’m completely obsessed! It’s one of my top reads this year and I already can’t wait to re-read it!

Adeline was an amazing heroine. She was snarky and sarcastic, but the star of this book was definitely her stalker Z.
Damn that man! He was so deliciously jelous and possessive, I definitely wouldn’t mind him stalking me!
I don’t want to say too much because you just have to experience this man for yourself. Trust me, you will never be the same again!
A murder mistery side plot and creepy vibes of living in a old mansion where murder happened kept me turning pages while also giving me goosebumps.
I know I’m biased since HD Carlton is one of my favorite authors, but her writing is on another level. The book was much longer than I expected, especially considering this is part one of a duet, but not one word felt wasted or drawn out. I got lost in the story and characters and didn’t want it to end.
The cliffhanger left me dying for more and I can’t wait for the conclusion of Adeline and Zade’s story!

5.0 out of 5 stars Loved it!
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on December 18, 2021
Haunting Adeline is a dark romance novel. The first book of the Cat and Mouse duet series, with the second book awaiting publication.

Adeline has moved into her great-grandmother Gigi’s home and home to her late grandmother Serafina. The family home is haunted by the unsolved murder of Adeline’s great-Grandmother Gigi, when renovating the family home Adeline comes to find Gigi’s hidden diary. The diary reveals that Gigi had a stalker whom she fell in love with. The answers to her murder maybe hidden in the pages of her diary. Adeline is desperate to find out what happened to Gigi all them years ago, and shockingly similar is that Adeline is plagued with her own stalker hiding in the shadows.

Another character is Zade the ring leader of a vigilante group who are on a mission to bring down pedophile and human sex trafficking rings. Zade is no stranger to danger, risks his life to save children and young women from evil and help return them to safety. On his mission to rid the world of evil he stumbles across a bookshop hosting a meet and greet book signing, when Zade’s eyes fall on Adeline, he’s thrown by her beauty instantly and is determined to make her his own.

This book has a lot of different elements to it and although it is very dark on times it was gripping from start to finish, and unlike anything I’ve read before.

It’s a murder mystery, dark romance, haunted house and has a dark tone all in one. I loved this book, the writing style and Adeline and Zade were for me both very likeable characters. The story in my opinion was set out really well. I’d recommend reading Satans affair before reading this as there’s a great crossover.

Also something to keep in mind if you are a person who does not like cliffhangers, I would hold off from reading this book until the second book is available.

I just hope the wait for the second book isn’t to long!

I only finished this yesterday but I had to get my feelings down straight away because I AM NOT OKAY...I'm really not ok
My heart is currently somewhere in deepest darkest depths of my stomach after finishing this one. On a scale of 1 to morally grey this book is pitch black, but in the most amazing way and I loved it. This is a bold statement but I'm going to say this is going straight in to my top 5 reads of 2021 (possibly even number 1) without any hesitation
From the atmospheric, gothic, paranormal, setting of the Manor House that author Adeline Reilly inherits from her her grandparents, to the deliciously dark stalker standing at her window, everything about this book crawled under my skin and straight into my soul
Zade - I didnt think it was possible to love a character that did so much good but was so, so bad, yet here I am. This man was so dark and so intriguing, he gets what he wants, takes his failures to heart and had me as addicted to him as he was to Adeline
The smut was as dark as the shadows Zade inhabits and it had me on the edge of my seat throughout
HD Carlton that cliffhanger should be illegal. I knew it was coming, you warned me on the first page but still I WAS NOT prepared. I need Book 2 in paperback stat, tell me how, take my money just promise me its coming in physical form not just kindle?
