LoveReading Expert Review of The Mistletoe Bride and Other Haunting Tales

A beautiful collection of short stories from the author of Labyrinth. These simple, perfectly crafted tales are a selection of ghost stories and tales inspired from English and French folklore. They are haunting but not all in a shivers-down-the-spine kind of way, some simply because you know when you finish reading them they will stay with you for a long, long time.

The Good Book Guide Review

The intimacy and atmospheric mood of the fourteen stories and a play in this anthology can be powerfully felt. Mosse has written an author’s note following each tale giving an interesting background to each story. Wonderfully varied and imaginative – from ‘The Theatre at Night’ where costumes come alive at night, to the title story ‘Mistletoe Bride’ reminiscent of a Dickens tale, to the truly haunting ‘Ship of the Dead’ – they will not fail to send a shiver down your spine.
