REVIEW: Vertigo by Gwenan Haines


When attorney Blake Cartwright abandons a successful career to turn a dilapidated lighthouse into an inn, everybody thinks she's gone a little bit crazy. After witnessing a body fall from the tower, Blake wonders if they might be right. According to local legend, the spirit of a former keeper's wife lures women to their deaths in the icy water below. Has Blake witnessed a suicide, seen a ghost--or is she just seeing things? Declan Hunter, the mysterious man she hires to help with renovations, doesn't help matters. The man with the Navy SEAL physique claims to be nothing more than a local handyman, but Blake's instincts warn her not to trust him. As the mystery deepens, she finds herself drawn into a dangerous labyrinth of secrets, lies, and murder. But the most serious danger of all may be falling for a man determined to leave her.

I’m not usually one to much enjoy ghost stories, but I have to give this one props. It was exciting, intriguing, and enjoyable. It’s very well written with an intricately woven plot and has characters that are strong willed and likeable. It keeps you engaged from beginning to end by keeping you guessing with twists and turns. My only complaint is that it might have been a little cliché, but it didn’t detract from my enjoyment.

Bottom Line:

Vertigo is a suspenseful mystery full of action and romance. You won’t be able to put it down until you’ve reached the climactic ending. Don’t miss this one!
