I was given this book by the author for an honest review.
This is a well written story about Paul, a man who loses the love of his life to cancer. After taking care of her during her illness he almost loses his real estate job so he has to score a big sale soon. He gets lucky and get a mansion to sell, only problem with this is there was a murder/suicide committed there. Now not only is he trying to move this white elephant, his children are now saying they’re seeing mom all over the house which adds even more to his plate.
This is my first book by Mr. Cash but definitely won’t be my last. He has great writing skills and builds up the suspense through out the book. I love the paranormal aspect of the love story without it being over the top and I can say in all honesty this is one of the better “ghost” stories I’ve read in quite a while.
