"The author delivers, giving you things that go bump in the night. You'll meet these ghostly inhabitants and get to know their stories. I engaged with the ghosts as well as Julie and Brad and came to worry about all of them." - Laura, Goodreads Reviewer

"12 stars and WOW! What a "happening'" book! I couldn't take my eyes off the page nor stop reading" - Mallory Heart Reviews
"It took me only a day and a half to read this book - and I absolutely appreciated that the story flowed along so easily. This is actually the fourth book that I've read by this author, and I must say that Michael Phillip Cash certainly knows how to create the proper atmosphere with his writing. The Flip has all the elements that I generally enjoy reading about - old houses, ominous secrets, ghosts, and a young couple with marriage troubles. Add in my latest interest; house flipping, and I'm hooked from page one. I give this book an A!" - Mary Moonbeams and Rosefire
"Michael Phillip Cash can spin a tale that will hold you captive and wanting more when that last page is turned, and The Flip is just one of his many great reads!" - Dianne, Tome Tender

The Flip is so much more than a haunted house story. There’s a cleverly woven backstory within these pages that includes undying and unrequited love, lust, romance, American Civil War history, paranormal activity and more. The author is a wonderful storyteller and I love the way he’s brought so many elements together in this book to create yet another unique read. It’s a short read, but as usual Mr. Cash has expertly packed in enough information to keep readers involved until the very end.
The idea that residual energy exists and remains long after we’re gone is spot on. This is a concept that I fully accept and I love that it’s at the heart of this book. The relationship between Gerald and Tessa was interesting and moving, and I found myself engrossed in the Civil War era flashbacks. I enjoyed the author’s notes at the end about Long Island’s Underground Railroad history. I’m quite familiar with the area and I hadn’t known about this before.
I can’t say enough about Michael Phillip Cash’s books. I’ve loved every one of them so far and I plan to read them all.
Their most recent acquisition is the Bedlam House, a run down Victorian mansion considerably past its glory days. It is a tremendous undertaking to restore it to its former glory, and Brad is upset with Julia for insisting that they buy the property. The Bedlam house is not only run down it is also very much haunted by two spirits. The ghosts are introduced early in the work and they are two more leading characters in the piece. They are Gerald and Tessa who were the original owners of the house and refuse to leave their home. Tessa in life was what was called in the Victorian era a "wanton woman" . Gerald has always been hopelessly in love with her in death as well as in life. She refuses to move on and Gerald stays in order to be near her. The novel goes back and forward in time so that we get to know Gerald and Tessa when they were alive. We find out that Gerald was a station master for the underground railroad using his home as a safe house for runaway slaves who are escaping to freedom. This turns out to be the cause of his demise. He is killed by two bounty hunters while he is transporting slaves in his wagon. We do not know how Tessa died.
Enter Brad who immediately catches Tessa's eye. She haunts him in such a manner that would be considered stalking by today's standards. Brad is oblivious to her and only feels a heaviness when she is around him.
While working on the rehab Brad discovers a secret room which is filled with Tessa's belongings which is a treasure trove of valuable artifacts.
Tessa's determination to seduce Brad leads her to travel to Brad and Julia's current home. She causes a fire in order to get them to move in to the Bedlam House. During their first night in the house Gerald possesses Brad and Tessa possesses Julia and of course the seduction takes place.
Eventually Gerald and Tessa move on and leave Brad and Julia in peace. At the end we discover that the artifacts found in the hidden room are worth a fortune when Brad takes them to his antique dealer friend. This enables them to retire and finish the Bedlam House in grand style.
The novel is fresh and engaging. It pulls you in and makes all of this seem believable even though at times it is over the top. I would recommend this work to anyone who likes ghost stories. However this work would appeal to anyone who enjoys reading good fiction regardless of the genre.

I was hoping for a more frightening read, which is why it loses a star.
Will definitely read the other books I've bought from this author.
