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?
Been a while since I last read a good ghost story and this was a great one! Any movie producers out there looking for their next movie? This is your story to make a great one. I found this story believable but then again I believe in ghosts. I believe that some spirits don’t leave right way due to unfinished business. Tessa and Gerald had some of their own that they needed closure on before they could move on.
I like how Philip wrote about the past and the present it helps to explain the history of the house and its ghostly occupants. This Bedlam house is full of history and antiques that are worth so much more than what Brad and Julie paid for the house. This house is the latest purchase for Brad and Julie they flip houses buy them cheap fix them up and sell them for a profit. But Julie has fallen in love with the charm in this mansion and does not want to sell this one, she want to keep it and turn into a bed and breakfast inn. As they are going through all of the contents left behind strange things start happening to them and anyone that spends time in the house. Their personalities are changing becoming more like the previous occupants of the house. When there is a fire in Brad and Julies home they live in they are forced to move into the Bedlam home while they are refurbishing it. This is when things start getting worse for them! Julie no longer wants to keep this house and she does not even what to be in it anymore.
To find out more and how this story ends you will have to take my word on it that this book is worth reading to find out. I never give away the ending on any book I read but I will tell you it is worth every penny paid to read!
