Danny is an artist who moves to a very small town after a divorce. He's haunted by an apparition of a girl, a lovely girl, that he doesn't realize is more ghost than human...at first. Who is she? And how can he help her?

This is a relatively short book, and the concept is a good one. The mystery of the girl is one that the reader wants to hang on until the end to find out how it all ends, because all is not as it seems. While the plot was simple and straight-forward, I liked the characters and th

I enjoyed this 18 chapter book. Divorced Danny rented a place in the country. Mysterious things kept happening in his new home. Was the place haunted? Readers soon found out that Mandy has been missing.

There was some headhopping and some of the dialogue was kinda clunky…I wish some contractions could’ve been used or something.

I liked the concept that Mandy could reach out to Danny, that he was the only one who could see her. My favorite scenes were: 1) when Mandy first realized that Danny was in

Review of Missing Mandy
4 stars

“Missing Mandy” is a novel of suspense and romance, and is wildly mysterious and imaginatively original. At first I wasn’t even certain who the “Mandy” of the title would be, because the author lays background and endears us to the protagonist, Danny, a recently-divorced painter (henpecked by his long-suffering mother). To get away from Mother and to recuperate after the painful end of the marriage, Danny buys a cottage near the tiny village of Ankleton, and nearly
