Ghosts aren‘t real, but chasing after an elusive white deer like a questing knight of old is a perfectly rational behavior, right?

I‘m pretty sure Jennifer McMahon is going to be an auto-buy author for me from now on.

A perfect #screamathon read, with witches and ghosts and haunted houses and hidden treasure. Oh my!

Loved the main characters, the atmospheric setting, and quick pace of the story. I don‘t particularly like the narrator of this audiobook, but she was tolerable considering the wait was so long for the ebook. 🤷🏻‍♀️

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

This was like a supernatural scavenger hunt: have an experience, learn some history, find the correct piece, get a new ghost!

This had it's "meh" moments and wasn't scary like I thought it would be but I really enjoyed it and there was definitely a few creepy moments.

Going to work on this creepy read and hope that it helps put me to sleep. Getting up at the ass-crack on dawn tomorrow to travel to a conference for work. So thrilled 😑
Have a couple #audiobooks loaded up for the drive. Hopefully it makes the trip go a bit faster.

This was an extremely well written and conceived ghost story perfect for this time of year. It didn‘t rely on gore and cheap thrills, but had a strong backbone of a story centered around a haunted town and the legacy of a woman who was believed to be a witch. I loved the way it came together and just thought this was so well thought out and clever. Great twist and great ending. I highly recommend!

A great story with tales of Witches and their ghosts! A very easy and fun read, especially for October.

It's spooky but not scary. I feel it would be great as a movie too!

Definitely a thumbs up from me!

Was looking forward to reading this one, but my god it was dull, dull, dull. Helen & Nate‘s issues would have been minimised if they had just talked to each other, whilst I found Olive a bit annoying.

I‘m not quite sure where the ‘chilling‘ parts were supposed to be & the twists were obvious. It would have been a DNF if I hadn‘t been reading it for a monthly challenge. A disappointing 2⭐️

The Invited is the first novel I've read by Jennifer McMahon, and I'm ready for more. This modern ghost story begins in the 1920s with Hattie Breckenridge who has visions of the future...without being able to change them. When she foresees a tragedy for her neighbors that happens, Hattie becomes a victim of her own talents. Then, the novel jumps forward to the present day on the land to which Hattie was deeply connected. (continued in comments)

UnabridgedPod The couple leaves their city life for one in the country. As they build their own home and learn a new lifestyle, the couple comes to know their neighbors and the dark legends that blanket their property. The book isn't scary, but it‘s a perfect ghost story, one that reveals people's truths, a couple's strengths and weaknesses, and the ease with which humanity can embrace corruption and suspicion. The Invited is an entrancing book. 4mo

It‘s a ghost story and a witch story and a haunted house story and a mystery all in one. I still don‘t love her writing voice, but I thought this was a lot more satisfying than The Winter People.

Jennifer McMahon is typically my go-to author for "guily-pleasure" horror/creepy reads, but she really stepped it up with this one! Her writing has so improved since her earlier works (some are quite messy), and the story (while cheesy at points) actually felt fresh and coherent for the most part. This had just enough "creep" to make it a lighter read for horror fans, but it's also a good choice for newbies to try the genre out ?

I got this as an ARC from #Netgalley a while ago and just got around to it.
So there are witches, a haunted house, and a treasure hunt-what‘s not to like? Nate and Helen quit their teaching jobs for a more simple life and begin building their new home in the country and they keep adding pieces with a “history” and that stirs things up quite a bit. There is a good mystery in this one and honestly I didn‘t figure it out until it was revealed.

"Few things in life ever go the way you imagine they will"

This old-fashioned ghost story/mystery/treasure hunt reminded me of scary stories that we told each other at sleepover parties as kids. The Invited kept my attention the whole read, anxious to find out what would happen next. While there were a few predictable events, I was still left guessing up until the end.

I‘m a fan of this author and I like that her books all are in a vein but do not follow a formula. Some are supernatural, some seem supernatural but have a scooby-doo ending. The Invited was intriguing since it examines a haunting that was chosen by the main character Helen. The surrounding mysteries aren‘t all that mysterious, but it was fun watching the characters figure things out. Enjoyable but not scary or even creepy, just interesting.

Bookgirl I will say, there was one huge flaw in the plot that did bug me...at one point saying a character wasnt in a location and then later on this person was conveniently there, with no explanation for the discrepancy. Sloppy! 6mo

Superb!! How have I never read one of JM‘s books before! I loved it in all its supernatural creepiness, the witchcraft and ghosts, differing timelines and the multi-generational story within the story.. the BIG mystery behind Hattie Breckenridge. And all without any blood or gore made this a 5 star read for me. If you enjoy a good ghost story I recommend this one.

Pretty solid book. A couple builds their dream house on their new land and weird things start happening. They uncover a horrifying history connected to the land and one family in particular who may still be haunting the land. Fun easy read. Great pace full of suspense leading up to a satisfying ending. I figured it out half way through but still found it enjoyable. 👻👻👻👻

I haven't written my “official“ review yet on goodreads, but I'm going to go with a pick. This honestly sits in between a pick and so-so for me, but fortunately, the ending wasn't a lame as I thought it was going to be. There was some major cheese in the middle, but there was some brilliance spread throughout too. Ultimately, I would read something else by Jennifer McMahon and that in itself is an indication of something positive.

The Invited is proof that renovations sometimes brings out the worst. Except this time it‘s paranormal. Kinda unnerving since we are remodeling our bathroom. This book is so unique. It‘s like a summer storm. You feel it building then all of a sudden it‘s finished. It twisted and turned the entire book and left me guessing. I did guess the ending but it was still awesome. I give it 4/5 because I had a couple of unanswered questions.
