The Strange Visitation at Wolffe Hall
Grayson Sherbrooke's Otherworldly Adventures Book #1
by Catherine Coulter

The year is 1841 and Grayson Sherbrooke, a popular author of gothic paranormal mysteries, lives on the coast of Northern England with his 4-year-old-son, Pip. He's asked by a neighboring little girl, P.C., to come to Wolffe Hall because something terrible is threatening her and her mother. She's come to Grayson because she's confused him with his fictional hero, Thomas Straithmore, who overcomes all obstacles and always triumphs over otherworldly evil. Thus, to her mind, Thomas is the only one to save them. She describes the house shaking with terrifying tremors and a huge black hole she calls the Abyss appearing in the entrance hall. She also knows the menace involves her great grandfather, known as The Great. He's obsessed with collecting and returning the famous Waterloo medals to the soldiers of the great battle of 1815, but he refuses to tell anyone why he's doing it. Grayson is soon embroiled in a mystery involving a wrongful death on the battlefield at Waterloo and a paranormal force that threatens the very lives of those living in Wolffe Hall.

I can't help myself I love Catherine Coulter's historical's. I can remember reading her stories back to back. Now don't get me wrong, I also liked her contemporary romantic suspense, but her historical's will always be my favorite.

The Strange Visitation at Wolffe Hall has been sitting on my kindle for about a year and I had yet to read it. Odd for me I know but it's been so long since she put out a historical and I've been very busy reviewing that it slipped through the cracks. I was cleaning up my books and trying to figure out which series I was missing books in (I hate when that happens) and came across this one. 

So since I needed something for our Clearing Off the Shelves post I figured why not. 

I am, but not really surprised that there isn't really a romantic element in this story. By Grayson is a Sherbrooke so I really didn't care. I loved visiting with him and his son, pip. The story is a mix a mystery and paranormal. 

It has everything you like about Coulter's writing. Great characters with a humorous wit! This is a very quick read. I didn't know when I started it that it was only about 90 pages. I wasn't paying attention. 

If you've read Coulter's Sherbrooke series or just feel like a quick mystery/paranormal story you'll enjoy this one. 

If you've read The Strange Visitation at Wolffe Hall or anything else by Catherine Coulter I'd love to hear your thoughts. Thanks for visiting with me and happy reading!

  1. I never heard of this one. And I am decades behind on her historicals, although I own most of them,lol! Sounds good, I love a paranormal element.

    1. It's only been out about a year. She's working on another right now. I love her historical's so much. I really miss them.

  2. Sounds good but to be clear,no romance?

  3. Sounds good but to be clear,no romance?
