One reunion. One ghost. One night that will change everything...

From her earliest memories, Ashley Pearce has been drawn to Ruby Hill Lunatic Asylum, and she's not the only one. Decades after the abandoned hospital ended its institutional reign of torture and neglect, something lurks in the shadows. Since she’s a paranormal investigator, it's Ashley's job to find out what.

Crime scene expert Corbin Malone doesn't believe in ghosts. A born skeptic, he has no interest in entertaining the hype surrounding the mysterious deaths at Ruby Hill, but he won't turn his back while more women die. He agrees to an overnight investigation, never expecting his first encounter would be with the woman he pushed away a year ago. But when he discovers Ashley is a target, he learns his greatest fear isn't living with his own demons, but losing her for good.

3.5 stars Why cant we get a half star here??
Ruby Hill. "In a hundred years of operation, tens of thousands of residents called the asylum home. Most never left alive. Hundreds, dumped anonymously in unmarked graves never left at all."

I love a good thriller and this was a thriller with some paran... ...more

What a thrilling ghost story!

The book is about an abandoned hospital thru years of speculation of being haunted and mysterious disappearances/death. Ashley is head of a hunting ghost team and is asked to check it out. The suspense totally captivated me left me in shock. With an ex blaming her fo... ...more

Originally reviewed on These Pretty Words.

This book was creepy with a capital C. You could pretty much tell from the start that it would be – not every book opens with something like “Death had a flavor.” Yep, that right there set the tone for the rest of the book.

She hadn’t finished the thought,...

Review also posted on my blog, Becky on Books.

Crime scene investigator and skeptic Corbin Mallone resents the fact that his boss has tricked him into spending the night babysitting a group of paranormal investigators at Ruby Hill asylum, the scene of his own brother's death six months earlier. Re... ...more

***Received from Entangled Publishing for an honest review***
(This is a short story/novella. This review is not based on story length but story content as length has very little to do with how much I enjoy a book.)

I'm all for a good ghost story, but I'm 100% sold on an awesome ghost story. This w... ...more

By Tina September 08, 2016

If you are a fan of the ghost hunting shows on television, then you will enjoy reading this short romance story.

The hospital has been abandoned for decades, but there is something that has always drawn Ashley Pearce to Ruby Hill. When the local police department asks her to bring in her ghost hun... ...more

Ruby Hill is an asylum that has recently been the site of “mysterious deaths”. Ashley and Corbin appear to have distant ties to the asylum and more recent romantic ties to each other. Something happened to end their relationship. Will they have a chance to re-build it or will Ruby Hill claim anot... ...more

By Melissa August 10, 2014

I've found myself to really love anything Ms. Ballance has written. You can call me a groupie, I guess! I am really not a fan of spooky, paranormal, or ghost stories, but I absolutely loved her other short - Hawthorne - so I decided I'd give this one a go. For the price, you can't beat it. Minute... ...more

By Mehsi February 24, 2016

Well that was a scary book. I would say this: Don't read it when it is night/dark. :)

Most of the book is either about the asylum or Ashley/Corbin's relationship and how it ended. Luckily both parts are just equally balanced so you don't feel annoyed (like so many books that say something happens... ...more

By Kristi (Books and Needlepoint) October 12, 2013

I was pulled into this story right away just for the fact that it was set at an asylum. Just the word asylum evokes thoughts of despair, horror, torture, general creep factor. Corbin was there to "babysit" some ghost chasers. They thought that a ghost had been killing women at the asylum. Skeptic... ...more

By Rosemary September 30, 2013

Ruby Hill Lunatic Asylum stands abandoned, desolate and deadly. The inmates lived in terrible conditions and most died alone and in pain. Now there is a new terror at Ruby Hill. Corbin Malone doesn't want to go there. This is where his brother was killed. Ashley Pearce, his former lover, is here... ...more

By CassandraG October 16, 2013


It was really good. It was short and it had just the right elements of suspense and the right eerie feel that comes with the creepiness of a long abandoned hospital known for torture and neglect and who knows what lurking underneath, beside or around. Ashley had a connection to Ruby Hill since he... ...more

I received an E-ARC of Ruby Hill from the publisher in exchange for an honest review, thank you.

The Novella, Ruby Hill by Sarah Ballance was a quick eerie read that’s just in time for Halloween.

Police officers and paranormal investigators were sent to investigate the mysterious deaths of several... ...more

Frightfully delicious!

I was given this book to read in exchange for an honest review, and boy am I glad! I read the blurb and thought, ohh ghosts! Cool!!! But it’s more than just that, it’s complex and frightening but most of all it’s heartwarming at the end. It shows how a couple can overcome ad... ...more

By Sassy Beta Reading & Review July 05, 2014

This was a super short read that involves a haunted asylum that's been closed down for years. 3 mystery deaths have occurred there recently - one being the brother of one of the investigators.

Corbin and Ashley were together previously until the death of Cash (Corbin's Brother.

This book has myst... ...more

The last place that Corbin wants to be is Ruby Hill Lunatic Asylum hunting for a serial killer that the media is saying is a ghost.

By Samaris October 08, 2013

I am a huge fan of anything paranormal I only gave this book 4 stars because it took me a while to get into the story otherwise it is a great read. It has a little bit of everything, a love gone awry due to unforeseeable circumstances, ghost, crazies and lover's reunited. It's a great quick thril... ...more

By Patricia September 17, 2013

This really is a good short read for the Halloween season. You have a ghost haunting and somehow killing a few people in an old abandoned asylum. The main characters have a past that comes into play and the ending will give you the chills. Who doesn't love a ghost story? If you do give this book... ...more

By Holly October 05, 2013

I loved this Novella! It had all the spook factors needed to keep me on the edge of my seat. The characters were amazing and fit very well together. Definitely recommend reading this one, especially with Halloween being right around the corner. I received an ARC from the publisher for an honest r... ...more

By Heidi September 30, 2013

I really enjoyed reading this short story, but like others who reviewed, I felt that it should have been a novel to include the back story of the two main characters. I didn't quite get their past relationship. However, it was nice and spooky, just like I enjoy my reads. The writing was top notch... ...more

By books4me September 24, 2013

This is a great read for Halloween but don't read it at night before you go to bed! I found it scary but a great Sarah Ballance read! I wish there was a bit more detail on the characters past but all in all a good read. ...more

By Redheaded September 12, 2013

A short story that reads like a full length book! Dark and mysterious with just a touch of romance. I was captivated from the first page. I'll be on the look out for more books by Sarah Ballance!

I received this book from NetGalley in exchange for my honest opinion. ...more
