The Haunted Pub by Melanie Tushmore

The Haunted Pub - Melanie Tushmore

Suffering from depression, and going through a rough time because of it, Fizz's misery culminates in his parents throwing him out, leaving him with two bags, twenty pounds, and nowhere to go. Desperate, he calls his brother, who takes him to The Queen Anne's Revenge, where Fizz winds up living in a room that hasn't had a human habitant for more years than anyone can actually count—a room that seems to already have an occupant…


*I've got this book from NetGalley in exchange of an honest review*

Firstly, I have to say, that I didn't expect to like this book as much as I did, however I have to warn you, that it can be triggering, because it deals with depression.
Secondly I didn't like the main character Fizz. I know he was depressed, but actually at some parts he reminded me more of a whining teenager, than a person with a mental illness, and believe me, when I say I know what depression is, because I had it myself. Other than that, I liked all the remaining characters in this book. I liked how diverse and interesting they were, how they developed feeling for each other during this book, how caring and nice they were.
Thirdly, I liked the plot and the idea of a haunting in the pub. It was gripping and interesting, sometimes made me smile and sometimes it was proper creepy, but it surrounded the romance rather than haunting itself and only in the ending there were more paranormal events. However, because the romance was done well I enjoyed this book none the less. And talking about the ending of a book, I think, it was a little bit rushed. There were still a lot of question unanswered, some things didn't make a lot of sense and needed more explanation.

Do I recommend this book ? Yes, if you like romance and ghosts.
