Welcome to Happy Acres (Haunted) Hotel for Active Seniors, the premiere senior living facility in all of Southern California (especially if you’re already dead)!
At Happy Acres we pride ourselves on the depth and breadth of our elder care (and for how many haunts we have -- 789 and counting!) as we surround your loved ones with vibrant, interesting people of their own generation (and many generations prior).
Happy Acres is fully staffed 24/7 by a team of dedicated (and in some cases, spellbound) medical staff, as well as housing one of the state-of-the-art medical inpatient and outpatient facilities in the Southland (just don’t see your doctor after dark), so your loved ones are ensured the best care in their golden years (and long after, as well).
Don’t let the rumors (all true) fool you -- while Happy Acres is indeed the best, its costs won’t race your beloved elders to an early grave (no, others will handle that). So come to Happy Acres, a facility you’ll love so much you’ll never want to leave! (Trust us on this one.)

When Gini Koch announced in her weekly news mail, that she had written a new novella, I knew I had to read it asap. And as it is available at Smashwords, the book was on my computer a few minutes later.

I very much enjoyed this story, the main characters are very engaging, and the story hooked me from the first page. But I really, really do not want to visit there after dark! Still, the perks of living there are amazing. It was not as creepy as I was fearing for a moment, but very intriguing and original.

A typical Gini Koch book: fun, entertaining, surprising, original, with great characters, and never long enough as I always want more. And I do for sure hope on more stories within this Haunted Hotel for Active Seniors.

9 stars.
