I return to Kate Mosse’s books again and again, partly because they take place in France and partly because they are historical fiction, but what really gets me is the cosy-scary-mysterious feeling of her works.
This short story collection is no exception. I love that she included author’s notes; as a writer I find it most interesting.
Some of Kate Mosse’s Haunting Tales are scary or mysterious, but most of the time they give me a cosy sort of feeling. Yes, there are ghosts and death and strange supernatural things happening, but they do not scare me much. I like them a lot though.
They are perfect for this time of year: I sit down under a blanket with a cup of tea and read; outside it is snowing and Kate Mosse’s short stories makes the cosiness of wintertime even more cosy in a haunting sort of way.
