    1. The suspense in this short story was pretty good. I read it in an hour. I've not read Perkins' other stories and chose this because I like to read ghost stories. A witch's bones are upset when the town is digging to create a new reservoir for the village. Jennet is a scorned angry woman from 1700s and out for revenge. Not exactly an original storyline but Perkins makes it interesting. I found the characters John, Sue and "Ma" underdeveloped and thin. Sometimes their voices were the same: flat an [...]


    2. When I wrote the novel, Thores-Cross, I thoroughly enjoyed writing about Jennet - the young innocent girl who became twisted through isolation and bitterness in the eighteenth century, terrorizing the ancestors of those who had mistreated her.I have been asked repeatedly to write more about her and, in the end, Jennet herself became so insistent, that I could not refuse. The result is Cursed, a short story chronicling how Old Ma Ramsgill (Mark Ramsgill's great-grandmother in Thores-Cross) dealt [...]


    3. I downloaded this book for free as part of a promotional deal. The book was okay and I can see it appealing to the avid Miss Marple type murder-mystery readership. However I myself found this book a little frustrating and a little slow. Although the clue was in the title, I think the Yorkshire theme became a little frustrating and was over-accentuated which I imagine for readers unfamiliar with this accent; it would quickly become irritating trying to decipher what the characters were saying. If [...]


    4. With Cursed – A Yorkshire Ghost Story, Karen Perkins presents us with a suspenseful short story. The story is cleverly elaborated, leaves you opportunity to include your own imagination. I had a real good time reading Cursed (Yorkshire Ghost Serie, #2). You can read and enjoy cursed even if you did not (yet) read Thores-Cross


    5. A brilliant prologue This is just what Thores- Cross needs, A well written prologue to the main story. Thoroughly enjoyed the story and the portrayal of the characters. What else can you expect from a master story teller.




    6. Short StoryI wish it was longer. This story was very short, but explained some details of Thores Cross. Great story. I look forward to reading more of Karen Perkins' books.



    7. Having just read Thores Cross which told the whole story of Jennet the 17th century witch & the Ramsgills this was a treat to revisit once again in this novella.
