Veronica Von Derbach is a single mom to Sully.  After a disastrous boat ride, Sully goes missing, presumed dead. Veronica having to carry on living her life becomes a parapsychologist, a ghost hunter. The majority of her cases she has disproven the present of a ghost, but when a grainy photo of a ghost at Lake Merlott arrives across her desk, she knows she has to investigate.

Veronica is a very brave woman, after everything she went through, she still got her degree and was renowned in her field. In all her cases, she showed compassion to the clients. When she began investigating at Lake Merlott, she was still professional even though she was scared to find out the truth.

This book was full of suspense and kept my interest from the start. The twists in the book kept me guessing throughout, and I was really surprised with the final twist, it was definitely what I did not expect. It was written with such feeling, you could really feel Veronica’s pain.

As usual Carissa knows how to tell a haunting story and is not afraid to tackle difficult subjects. If you want a great story that will keep you on the edge of your seat, then buy this book. 1st class

51nuznofa1lWhen Chris Katiwa began packing to move to a new premise, he didn’t think that finding some old tapes would stir up a load of memories. The tapes played the interviews between him an eager psychotherapist and Louise a young woman involved in a missing persons/murder case in Italy. Added to this is a mysterious woman who is rescued by Chris when she is outside his office in the heavy snow storm.

The author had a way of telling story, they kept me hooked from the beginning. The idea of the interview tapes was a good way to tell Louise’s story and you could just imagine listening to her voice whilst wondering if she was responsible for her friend’s demise.  Jumping to the time of the interviews we then follow Chris in his quest to get to the bottom of the mystery and to prove Louise’s innocence. Whilst reading I was on the edge of my seat as I was expecting something to happen. The introduction of Asha and Josephine was unexpected and I was surprised of their true identity. The way the story was laid out helped develop the main character as the young Chris in Italy was very unsure of his skill and lent a lot on his mentor, whilst when he got older and was working in Harley Street, he was confident in his abilities

With the story line incorporating London, Italy and the interview with Louise, you would expect this to be a confusing read, but it wasn’t, each chapter told you exactly when and where it was set.

It is hard to pigeon hole this book into one particular genre, but I would say that this is a Suspense Ghost story, that will keep you gripped.  I will definitely look out for more from this author
