2. The Betrayed by Heather Graham - it only does this take place in the town where Sleepy Hollow is based around Halloween but there's also headless corpses and lots of ghosts. There's a little bit of romance and a big dog to take the edge off.
3. Splintered by A.G. Howard - So this really doesn't have much to do with Halloween but it's creepy and spooky and weird so that's close enough.
4. Witch by Barbara Michaels - I love Michaels' suspense novels and this one - complete with a ghost witch is probably the spookiest.
5. Trick or Deceit by Shelley Freydont - A murder that takes place in the middle of a haunted house competition. It's hard to get more in the Halloween spirit than that.
Five I Want to Read:
2. The Tell-Tale Heart and Other Writings by Edgar Allan Poe - I recently read a book that figured the ghost of Edgar Allan Poe and had a number of references to his writings. I've been wanting to do a big reread ever since and this is the perfect time of year.
3. A Good Marriage by Stephen King - I've somehow never read Stephen King but this novella is tempting me. Plus, I love the do you really know your spouse trope.
4. Stalking Jack the Ripper by Kerri Maniscalco - it's Jack the Ripper - I can never resist a Jack the Ripoer book and I've heard good things about this one.
5. Practical Magic by Alice Hoffman - So I'm not sure how Halloween-y this is but there's witches and an old house and I really just want to read more books by Alice Hoffman.
