Review

Midwest Book Review:
This is a terrific horror tale that hooks the reader with a need to know why the hospital locked away The Ninth Floor. Fans will wonder whether ghosts walk the corridors, if this is a psychological suspense, or a psychopath; and why Ryan's parents treat her as they do. Liz Schulte provides her
audience with a strong thriller that will have fans suffering the "Jaws Syndrome" to stays at hospitals."

About the Author

Many authors claim to have known their calling from a young age. Liz Schulte, however, didn't always want to be an author. In fact, she had no clue. Liz wanted to be a veterinarian, then she wanted to be a lawyer, then she wanted to be a criminal profiler. In a valiant effort to keep from becoming Walter Mitty, Liz put pen to paper and began writing her first novel. It was at that moment she realized this is what she was meant to do. As a scribe she could be all of those things and so much more.

More About the Author

Many authors claim to have known their calling from a young age. Liz Schulte, however, didn't always want to be an author. In fact, she had no clue. Liz wanted to be a veterinarian, then she wanted to be a lawyer, then she wanted to be a criminal profiler. In a valiant effort to keep from becoming Walter Mitty, Liz put pen to paper and began writing her first novel. It was at that moment she realized this is what she was meant to do. As a scribe she could be all of those things and so much more.
When Liz isn't writing or on social networks she is inflicting movie quotes and trivia on people, reading, traveling, and hanging out with friends and family. Liz is a Midwest girl through and through, though she would be perfectly happy never having to shovel her driveway again. She has a love for all things spooky, supernatural, and snarky. Her favorite authors range from Edgar Allen Poe to Joseph Heller to Jane Austen to Jim Butcher and everything in between.

From start to finish, this book kept me hooked. When I first saw a picture from one of the scenes I thought it might be a little too creepy, but it wasn't. This book has it all, great characters, a little romance, dogs, voices, mystery, and best of all, a hea. Ryan is a very believable leading lady. the family angst had me hurting for all of them and before the middle of the book I knew which man I wanted in Ryan's life. If you have read LIz's Ella books, you will love this one as well. The twist at the end wasn't necessarily predictable, but i did figure out the stalker before they were revealed. This is a story I will go back and revisit.

The latest from Liz Schulte is a masterful piece of suspense. The characters were well developed and the plot captured and held your interest. I was eagerly anticipating Ryan finding her way to the ninth floor. While the author may have planned for this to be a stand alone book, I think there is certainly opportunity to prequel, if not sequel, the story.

I finished this in one sitting. Don't know if it was a compelling read or something else that kept my attention. Parts I liked and others I didn't. Didn't figure it out til the end and the ending I never saw it coming.

This was an entertaining enough book. Kind of had to suspend my disbelief to accept that a whole floor of a hospital could be mysteriously locked up for years and everyone is fine with it. Pretty good plot, good twists. Good easy read or beach read.

- SPOILER ALERT!! -

Some readers have categorized "The Ninth Floor" as a mystery-thriller with some romance. It's definitely a mystery, but thriller? No, not a thriller; not even a little scary. I found the premise to be interesting as I kept reading to learn why and how everything was connected to Ryan. Unfortunately, I guessed who the killer was early on and figured out the reasoning behind it all. Then there's the family dynamic which I found to be very bizarre. I understood Ryan's reasons for not being close to her family, even moving away. For her parents to ensure that she not stay with them, stay far away, was odd and to be honest, ridiculous. If they wanted to have a close relationship with her, perhaps telling her the truth would have been in everyone's best interest regardless of what was going on. (I hope this is making sense.) And the romance? Definitely there but only because Ryan was totally clueless when it came to choosing the right guy thereby dragging the romantic angle on and on. I also thought the ending was very abrupt. You're reading the story getting to the end and when you do, BAM! It's over. In the end, an easy read that some mystery lovers might enjoy.

Ryan Sterling's boyfriend of several years has left her with no explanation at all. Ryan's heart is broken and just as she's thinking of making a change in her life to try to deal with the loss, her family contacts her to tell her that her beloved Aunt is gravely ill. Even though Ryan hasn't been home in years or had any contact with her family she feels she must return home to be at her aunt's side.

Ryan immediately returns to Goodson Hollow to be at her aunt's side at St. Michael's Hospital. While visiting her Aunt, Ryan begins to notice strange things and noises at the hospital. The ninth floor was shut off to the public and staff numerous years ago and is rumored to be haunted. Ryan initially discounts the rumors and believes they are the work of overactive imaginations. However as nurses begin to die and strange occurrences continue to happen Ryan begins to wonder if the rumors are true.

She's also begun receiving strange gifts and notes at her new apartment. Someone is watching Ryan and she becomes more and more convinced that she needs to find out what is behind the locked doors of the ninth floor to get to the bottom of the things that have been happening and if her aunt has a chance of surviving.

The Ninth Floor is my first Liz Schulte book but it definitely will not be my last. I found it to be a very compelling suspense novel that was hard to put down. It kept me at the edge of my seat waiting to find out what was on the ninth floor.

I would definitely recommend this for an engaging read...you want to get back to it and find out what's next. It isn't just filled with empty words like so many novels.
