About Ruby Hill
From her earliest memories, Ashley Pearce has been drawn to Ruby Hill Lunatic Asylum, and she's not the only one. Decades after the abandoned hospital ended its institutional reign of torture and neglect, something lurks in the shadows. Since she’s a paranormal investigator, it's Ashley's job to find out what.
Crime scene expert Corbin Malone doesn't believe in ghosts. A born skeptic, he has no interest in entertaining the hype surrounding the mysterious deaths at Ruby Hill, but he won't turn his back while more women die. He agrees to an overnight investigation, never expecting his first encounter would be with the woman he pushed away a year ago. But when he discovers Ashley is a target, he learns his greatest fear isn't living with his own demons, but losing her for good.
The Novella, Ruby Hill by Sarah Ballance was a quick eerie read that’s just in time for Halloween.
Police officers and paranormal investigators were sent to investigate the mysterious deaths of several victims found at the Ruby Hill Lunatic Asylum. Corbin is one of the police officers assigned to the team. The backstory was well-developed and it set the stage for what Corbin would have to face as he spent the night at Ruby Hill. As he faced the ghosts/demons from his past, the story was hair-raising. I never quite knew what event or supernatural entity to expect next as Corbin and Ashley rounded each bend in the asylum’s hallway, the same hallway in which his brother died. Although some scenes were perplexing, the overall story was spellbinding.
I recommend Ruby Hill for adults who like paranormal romance novels that are both unnerving and mysterious.
I received an E-ARC of Ruby Hill from the publisher in exchange for an honest review, thank you.
