Review of ebook Parrish by Shannen Crane Camp #FutureHousePub

* I received this ebook for free in exchange for my honest review. All opinions are my own. *

If you enjoy ghost stories this one is quite intriguing. A group of friends that venture into the world of the "unknown" so to speak to try to explain the unexplained. You can receive this ebook for a limited time on Amazon for only 99 cents April 28th-30th, originally it is $3.99.

I found the book to be a good read and an interesting story line. I think it is well suited for a young adult audience and definitely keeps you guessing about what they will uncover with the "ghosts". In the process they learn a few things about relationships, each other and how things tie together. What could those noises and bumps in the night truly be?

The writing by the author is well done and she draws you in with paragraphs such as the one I have included here. It's always been interesting to me to find out what a ghost or spirit may be trying to communicate. In this paragraph they heard something while investigating and they are listening to the sound they captured back on the tape they recorded.

"I couldn't quite understand why, but the voice made the hair on the back of my arms stand up. This
childlike sound made me feel uneasy. Looking around the cramped bathroom, I could see I wasn't the only one. Deacon had stopped making faces and Jefferson had his eyes closed, trying to figure out what was being said" (Camp, chapter 9 location 1228, 24% on a kindle).

This is the first book in a series and I am looking forward to reading more and following along on the adventures. Overall I felt it was a good book :-)

Future House Publishing will be giving away a few copies for the book's launch starting today. You can find out more by visiting their blog on their website.

Here is a brief blurb about the story taken from Future House Publishing:

Parrish Blurb:
Sadie Smith was absolutely certain of three things: (1) ghosts were indisputably real; (2) she and her three friends were some of the best (if not the most . . . conventional) ghost hunters in Oregon; (3) her teammate Jefferson Parrish was always the scariest thing in the room—even during a paranormal investigation. In a face-off between supernatural beings and Jefferson's lack of social skills and Tim Burton-esque vibe, there really was no contest. But ghosts—unsurprisingly—aren't great at helping to pay the rent, so when Sadie and her friends receive an anonymous letter from a mysterious client offering an undisclosed sum of money in return for finding the link between four haunted locations, it's an easy sell. Going on blind faith and a few vague instructions on how to reach their first location, the ghost hunters set out only to see clue after clue falling into place. As they piece together a sinister mystery reaching back to the 1800s, the group starts to wonder if they're in over their heads, or if they're on the path to unraveling a love story that was buried long ago—and one that should stay buried.
