Book Review: The Room at the End by Harmony Kent (Harbor Point book series # 8)(@ Harmony_Kent)

The Harbor Pointe Series is a collection of eight novellas by Story Empire authors. Each story takes place at the Harbor Pointe Inn in a fictional California town. See my reviews for the previous books in the series on this blog.

I am sad that the Harbor Pointe series has ended but very excited about this last book! It is a perfect conclusion to the series, which begins in the 1800s and now brings the reader into the future of 2072.

Mia Hawthorne has lost everything: her wife and the Inn at Harbor Pointe, which was originally built by her ancestor. Her grief leads her to want to kill herself, which she can do easily because there is now a governmental department which assists citizens in doing just that, by sending them to a place of their wishing to commit their suicide. By chance, this entity sends Leah to the very hotel she has so recently lost. Now run by the corrupt government, the Inn is nothing like it was when Mia was young. She is assigned to a cottage away from the Inn, a haunted place where the original lighthouse keeper lived.

Things begin to spiral when during her first day at the Inn, Mia is confronted by some vengeful and angry ghosts inhabiting the cottage who threaten and frighten her. She does not understand their appearance but is determined to discover the reason why. When she finds an abandoned dog while taking a walk around the grounds of the Inn, she decides she needs to find the dog’s owner before taking her life. The appearance of the dog sets in motion her decision not to go through with it.

Mia has the power to set history straight and avoid the fate for herself that she had wanted. The author cleverly wraps up the ghost stories that are a thread through this series, without requiring the reading of the previous books, and leads Mia and the reader to some unanticipated revelations, kindly ghosts, time travel, and strange and unexpected events. The atmosphere is at once foreboding but also hopeful, a magical combination that the author creates.

What more could a reader want? I loved this book and highly recommend it!
