This is a great story that links past and present in a supernatural thriller. Jeremy just was released from an insane asylum thanks to help from his Uncle Jack. Jack is the only family Jeremy has because his mom and dad died years ago. As pictures of what truly happened to his parents in the past float around him, Jeremy is finding the present has problems of its' own. This is a well written tale that will have readers eagerly turning the pages.

Woman in the Woods is loosely based on a local legend (Rochester, NY) that has been around since my parents were kids. Lady in White, or White Lady's Castle is what the tale was known by. The front face of a "castle" at Durand Beach faces Lake Ontario, on either side are stone steps and behind it nothing but woods.

Growing up my parents' house was haunted. Inside "lived" a friendly ghost known as Jenny. I stopped sleeping in my own bedroom at the age of thirteen or fourteen. Even when I returned

So first off, the book's description is actually misleading. (view spoiler) I was expecting more of a thriller, not simply a ghost story. There is also very little sense of setting, something I noticed especially since I have lived in Old Forge and Inlet, near where the book takes place (Old Forge is mentioned ...more

Excellent

This book freaked me out a bit. I was so drawn into the story I had to sleep with my lights on. Looking forward to the next one!

"Woman in the Woods" by Phillip Tomasso is a real page-turner! The story begins in 1912, then skips to the present. That pattern continues throughout the book, adding to the intrigue and suspense. Although I don't normally read ghost/paranormal mysteries, I'm glad I made an exception.

Couldn’t put it down!

I literally read this in less then 8 hours. I think this is the best book so far written by Philip Tomasso! I hope everyone takes the time to read it. Well done sir, well done.

This book follows two story lines in parallel: the murder and investigation of Elissa's thirteen year old daughter in 1912, and the present day return home of Jeremy to the care of his uncle from a mental institution following his eighteenth birthday. Jeremy is living in the house that belonged to his murdered parents and starts to feel that the house is haunted. Strange things are happening, things that seem to have a connection to the past, which makes him explore the history and draws the two ...more

Spooky Tale with a surprising twist

Totally enjoyed this novella which slips between the events of 1912 and the present. When a young girl is raped and murdered in the early years of the 20th century, no one could predict that her death would continue to have repercussions that still reverberate in the present.
Having witnessed the deaths of his parents in a murder/suicide at the age of eight, Jeremy becomes a disturbed child and we meet him at the age of 17 as he is released from the psychiatric

Enthralled from start to finish! Tomasso never fails. He knows how to write horror and suspense with an eye for what will make readers squirm. His latest novella, Woman in the Woods delivers no different. I found myself unable to read this story in bed at night. The darkness seemed too alive. So after reading in the daylight, I still found myself suspensefully swiping Kindle pages to find out who did what and why. The story follows two story lines, Elissa and the loss of her 13 year old daughter ...more

Another great read by Phillip Tomasso! This novella tells a story of the past and present. As Jeremy is released from an insane asylum , he moves into his childhood home where old memories emerge and old secrets start to surface. Part of the story is set in the present and part is set in 1912. As the story goes on Jeremy must figure out what happened that night before he was locked away while also discovering the woman in the woods. This is a quick read, full of suspense and an ending that is su ...more
