The Spirits of Six Minstrel Run by Matthew S. Cox
Division Zero Press | January 18th, 2019
A move to the small town of Spring Falls, New York is the perfect cure for Mia Gartner’s horrid commute. However, her new home isn’t quite empty.
She adored working in fine art restoration, but a two-hour ride each way got old fast. When her husband found a house for sale at a suspiciously low price, they jumped at it. Mia expected chemical contamination, a fixer-upper, or termites, so when the problem turned out to be persistent rumors of haunting, she set aside her worries. Adam hoped the place would propel his parapsychology hobby into a career.
Upon first sight, the innocuous suburban house filled Mia with dread. Adam had long maintained she had a psychic gift, but if she believed him, that would mean something terrible and dark once happened there.
Soon after their arrival, unexplained events prove the rumors are more than wild stories. A childlike spirit attaches itself to Mia, seeming harmless and so very lonely.
Alas, she fears the ghost may not be as innocent as it seems.
Adam and Mia got an amazing deal on this house on Minstrel Run that’s been empty for a while. Other people that have lived there haven’t stayed very long. The house is haunted which piques Adam’s interest in the paranormal and makes Mia start to believe what Adam has always told her: she is a psychic. One of the ghosts living in the house is a seven-year-old girl who is looking for a maternal figure. The ghost seeks those affections in Mia, who out of all of the past owners, can actually see her. Is this a good idea? You’ll have to read it to find out.
As far as page-turners go, the author hit the mark with this one. What I got from this book is definitely not what I was thinking when I agreed to review it.
This book probably has the craziest plot twist I have ever read. No joke, when I was reading it my eyes got so wide, like no way this is about to happen. But it did, and let me tell you, it’s really weird. I can honestly say that I had no idea it was coming though, so kudos to the author.
I would recommend this book to fans of supernatural thrillers and scary ghost stories. I received this book for free as part of the blog tour.
