Title: The Girl In The Forest
Author: Bridgid Dean
Purchase Link: https://www.amazon.com/Girl-Forest-Bridgid-Dean-ebook/dp/B01JZI1MM2
*I voluntarily reviewed this book*
Jolie is the main character in the book. She's a young girl who is drawn into the world of tarot with her new friends Jamie and Greta. Jolie has dreams about a cottage in a forest and has the dreams become stronger so does the mystery revolving around her new friends.
The story's good and offers a lot of mystery. Towards the beginning it was good because there was a lot of suspense, especially with Jolie's nightmares and the suspense around Jamie and Greta. However, towards the end of the book everything started to get a bit confusing. I felt as if there was too much going on and it was hard to keep up.

*I voluntarily reviewed a copy of this book*
Brad and Julie’s perfect marriage is threatened when they decided to flip an old, Victorian mansion. While Julie wants to keep the house, Brad wants to ditch it. As they continue the restoration process, strange things begin to happen, causing tension with the couple. Will the spirits drive a wedge between them? Or will love win out?
I love paranormal stories, especially ones with ghosts. So I was eager to read The Flip based on the synopsis.
It’s definitely a spooky story with the scary elements and the drama between Julie and Brad. I liked how the author created a backstory for the ghosts Tessa and Gerald. Much like Julie and Brad, Tessa and Gerald are a couple who faced problems both on earth and in the afterlife. Gerald he loves Tessa and does everything he can for her, yet at times she doesn’t reciprocate his love.
This is the second time I’ve read a ghost book by the author and I’ve quickly become a fan of his work. The way he combines of paranormal, drama, and romance elements made The Flip a nice story. I’m looking forward to reading more of his work.
