Review: The Flip


From Goodreads: Julie and Brad Evans are house flippers. They buy low, clean out the old occupants junk, and try to make a profit. Enter Hemmings House on Bedlam Street in scenic Cold Spring Harbor, Long Island. Too good a deal to pass up, but with an ominous secret. The old Victorian Mansion has dwellers that do not want to be dispossessed. As the house reveals it's past, will the couples marriage survive The Flip?












REVIEW:

I freaking LOVE HGTV. I watch these house flipping shows and can only imagine that sort of lifestyle. Buying something old, cleaning it up and then turning it around for a nice little profit before starting the next project. To me....that seems like a labor of love. But what about the previous owners? What happened to all the history and the old stories from all those who lived there before you got to it? No one ever mentions them....until now.

When Brad and Julie purchase a beautiful Victorian mansion on Long Island, they have no idea what's in store for them. Julie loves the dated d├ęcor and the way walking into the home sends you back to a time of elegance. Brad thinks the house is more work than it's worth and can not wait to get rid of it. I think Brad may have a point.

What neither of them know, is that deep inside the house are the spirits with a deep history in the house and are not interested in sharing....no matter what the cost!

We have two unique love stories mixed in with this ghostly thriller and I find that quite amazing. On one hand, you have a married couple who have put everything into a home they don't agree on, leaving their marriage on the rocks. On the other, a ghostly duo who's unrequited love had withstood the tests of time. Their relationships with each other, as well as the home that brought them together, make for an intriguing read that leaves the reader wanting more!

Cash has brought to life a story that not only keeps you on the edge of your seat, but leaves you thinking. He has brought to life characters and history in an amazingly quick and easy read.

I did find that the ending left a little to be desired, but was overall impressed with the book. I love any book that draws me in completely and makes me forget the world around me. This was definitely that book!

If you are looking for a great, fun, quick read.....get on this book! Or any other of Michael Phillip Cash's novels. They are well worth the read!! Seriously....go buy it :)
