Format: Hardcover
I wanted very much to enjoy this book and I did to a point. The characters were fully developed and real, and the book started with a spooky scene that set the tone for the rest of the book. The problem was the ending; though not so much as it was rushed, the ending just kind of puttered out. Simply, it wasn't as well developed as the rest of the book.
At only 184 pages, Ebisch could have stretched his novel out for another 50/100 pages, and he should have resolved some of the minor story lines which were integral parts of the novel, story lines that he had begun so well. But without these being resolved, the novel felt unfinished and, dare I say, amateurish.
I am going to read his second book in the series, Grave Justice, to see if, hopefully, he's done a better job with that one.

This story started out as a good read but shortly thereafter it started to fizzle. It lacked the real suspense factor I thought was going to be there when you have the setting in an old boarded up and abandon house.

"The Crying Girl" is a spellbinding mystery set in an old New England town dating back to the early 19th century: and is authored by prolific novelist Glen Ebisch; who received his PhD in philosophy from Colombia University. He resides in Massachusetts with his wife.

Amanda Vickers, the editor of the magazine Roaming New England and her associate editor Marcie Ducasse travel to a small town in New Hampshire, to investigate the mysterious death of retired Professor Hazel Wilmont for a possible magazine feature article. Wilmont, (a friend/former instructor of Vickers) fell to her death in the Shadsborough Inn, while checking on a possible paranormal occurrence which a young girl was reportedly heard crying from inside the abandoned boarded up Inn.
The Inn was owned for two generations by the Phelps family, and was origionally built in the early 1800's. John Phelps was outraged and angry Professor Wilmont had died while trespassing on his property! He didn't have the necessary funds for restoration, was disabled with poor health, yet firmly refused to sell to developers. He warned Amanda and Marcie to stay off his property, and other townspeople didn't appreciate the two women outsiders snooping around and asking questions. Both women felt they were being watched. A young teenage girl, Anne Martin was also missing!

The women knew they had a sensational story for the magazine! What had happened to Professor Wilmont, was the alleged fall an accident or something more sinister? What about the story of the crying girl, and mysterious disappearance of Anne Martin? As determined as they were to find answers, there seemed to be an evil darker force they confronted while breaking into the Inn late at night. I enjoyed this mystery read, the ending wasn't overdone and could have possibly happened. Also love the great book cover art!

The story was short for a novel, and probably could have been shorter, the story didn't really start picking up a full head of steam until about 2/3rds through. But it was a quick and enjoyable read. I felt a little bit like I was reading a Nancy Drew mystery or expected Scooby Doo and the gang to show up.

But that actually wasn't a detraction from it, it made it a charming story, especially when the story could have been so much darker and meaner. The characters were decently fleshed out, although the main protagonists perception of the secondary protagonist seems rather inaccurate. The way Amanda kept describing Marcie didn't really seem to match up with the things Marcie says or the things she does.

That being said, the dialogue worked well, it was probably the best part of the book, nothing felt particularly forced.

The biggest problem I would say is in editing, there were frequent misspellings or words that would have been missed by a spell check because they were technically spelled correctly, but were the wrong word for the context of the sentence.

I probably wouldn't have paid full price for this as a printed book, but for the Kindle Daily Deal price, it was well worth the money.

An editor and her assistant investigate the mysterious death of the editors old teacher in a little New England town with a haunted inn. Nice little mystery with elements of paranormal. A little rough and clunky, but an ok book. Suitable for all ages.

This is an alright book with a decent story. The character names are easily confused and there is a large amount of useless information. Overall I enjoyed reading it, but if you get confused with names easily, I wouldn't suggest it.

it wasn't over the top, but easy read. I do most of my reading while on the treadmill. It definitely made the time go faster! Almost didn't want to get off the treadmill to see what happens next! :O)
