Her loving husband suggests doing something different to get those juices flowing again. She goes back to pen and paper and sits herself down on the sofa. Of course, she does what most of us do ... she falls asleep.
When she wakes, she finds that she has written a chapter. But this is not a work of fiction. And when police show up asking her about her characters, she finds that these are real people.
Natalie comes to believe that the story is actually being written by a murder victim and he wants the world to know what happened to him and why.
And now there are people who will stop at nothing to keep that story from being published ... before the final chapter is written.
This is not your usual ghost story ... no strange moans and sounds of chains. No sightings of ghosts or goblins. Not being a huge fan of ghost stories, I appreciate these things.
The story premise is a good one. The characters are solid .. well, sort of. There is suspense and a bit of drama. There are fires and car 'accidents' and break ins. Kept me turning page after page.
This is a novella ... under 150 pages.
Many thanks to the author who shared the digital copy of this most interesting story. Opinions expressed here are unbiased and entirely my own.
Ghost Writer is a thrilling tale of murder, mystery, and betrayal. Would you tell anyone if your blank notepad was filled out in your own handwriting while you slept?
What I liked:
Solid relatable main characters. I felt driven to keep reading to know what else would appear on Natalie's pages. I love the concept, being taken over by a muse instead of simply inspired. The writing is smooth and clear, pulling me into the pages. I had an inkling toward the twist at the end and didn't feel let down when it came to fruition.
What I Didn't Like:
The secondary characters were more or less cliche, but they didn't need to be more developed to allow the plot to move along. So it's a minor dislike in the greater scheme.
I gave Ghost Writer a solid five stars for a thrilling, albeit short-ish, story and wish her all the best in her continuing writing career. I look forward to reading more of her works.
Forget ghost stories where ethereal forms pass through walls and closed doors scaring the crap out of some poor chap or where creepy dolls come to life at night with blazing eyes. The 'ghost' in this book makes its presence known in a very creative, unusual way.
Natalie Cooper is a bestselling author who is currently suffering from writer's block. Whatever she does, nothing seems to spark her imagination back to life. Until one day after dozing off over her open notebook, she's amazed to find she has actually written something. It's the first chapter of a new book and a good one at that, but there's a problem... Natalie doesn't remember writing a word. Strange!
This happens more than once and little by little quite a disturbing story, whose main character is a journalist named Ryan, starts to take shape in her notebook. Natalie is gobsmacked and intrigued to see how the story will develop. But soon strange things start to happen to Natalie and her husband. It's as though someone is trying to scare them off. Somehow, unknowingly she has upset some dangerous individuals. But who? And why? Could this possibly have anything to do with the story she's writing? But why would anyone be irked by a fiction book? Who is really writing the book?
I don't wish to say any more as this is a short story and I don't want to spoil it to anyone. I'll just say that Natalie and her husband go to hell and back before THE END in both Natalie's and this book is reached.
Being a fast-paced, suspenseful novella, I read this book fairly quickly, and I thought it was brilliant. I wanted to know how it will all end. What would happen to Natalie and her husband and what message was the Ghost Writer trying to convey. Who was behind all the mishaps happening to them? And more importantly who was the Ghost Writer?
The author's writing is fluid and crisp making this an even more delightful read. All characters are true to life and the dialogue realistic. I loved the whole idea behind the book. The ending left me a bit sad maybe, but on the whole I really enjoyed reading this clever novella and I find no problem in recommending it. Well done!
