On the blog today I have a review of Possession by Ginny Fite for Suzy Approved Book Tours
About The Book:
Release Date: September 12, 2020 Milford House Press
Recently widowed Sylvie Andrus moves with her young son, Jason, to a small river town, and discovers she must solve a two-century old mystery to rid herself of the ghost who haunts her. Still grieving, she finds the ghost of her husband, Ned, waiting in her new home to seduce her. Jason warns Sylvie the ghost is evil but, swept up by her yearning for her husband and determined to reveal what happened to Clarinda Braxton, a Revolutionary Era painter who disappeared without a trace in 1794, she delays, putting her son’s life in peril.
Miss W’s Review:
Possession by Ginny Fite is a ghost story with a twist.
The characters are quirky and interesting. The timeline alternates between the late 1700’s and 2015 and this works well.
The multiple point of views work really well especially where the historical information is woven into the story line.
Sylvie Andrus is a new widow and has moved to a new town with her son to start over. She discovers a note from her husband about a woman who had gone missing in the late 1700’s. Sylvie is on a mission to find out what happened to this woman.
This is a well written suspenseful ghost story but so much more. I really enjoyed the historical pieces woven into the mystery.
