Book Review ~ Stillwell: A Haunting on Long Island by Michael Phillip Cash

Stillwell: A Haunting on Long Island
by Michael Phillip Cash

Paul Russo's wife just died. While trying to get his family's life back in order, Paul is being tormented by a demon who is holding his wife's spirit hostage on the other side. His fate is intertwined with an old haunted mansion on the north shore of Long Island called Stillwell Manor. Paul must find clues dating back hundreds of years to set his wife's soul free.

Mr. Cash has created a haunting and gripping story that was well paced with just the right amount of spookiness and intrigue that kept me interested throughout.  I could not help but become attached to the characters as the author’s writing ability and style really drew me in and made me connect with them, not only on a personal level but an emotional one as well.  I could not put this one down as I had to find out how this story was going to end. With so many twists and turns, I really did not know what to expect with the ending, and was really quite happy with the outcome.  And guess what?  NO CLIFFHANGER.  Nope, this story actually ends with the last page, tied up with a nice little bow and leaving you with a smile on your face. 

Michael Phillip Cash is a new author for me, but after reading Stillwell:  A Haunting on Long Island, I am definitely adding him to my list of favorite authors.  If you are looking for something to read with a little paranormal, laced with mystery and suspense mixed with a touching love story, then I would recommend that you give this book a try.
