"You can’t have the light without the dark."

Quinto's "The Doctor's Estate" was a thrilling read, a truly original story that will leave the reader pondering long after the final page. The main character, Ted, is devastated by his mother's dwindling illness of Alzheimer's disease. Unable to cope with her loss of memory and deteriorating health, he purchases a large estate in the hopes of building a perfect home for her. Despite of the incredibly lowered price and strange demeanour of the real es

Intriguing story of the supernatural. Ted has a new home, but he has no idea what he is in for. The dark shadows are everywhere and even a naysayer has to think twice about what is happening. This is one to read with the lights on.

I picked up this book with an open mind, as I don't usually read this type of horror /mystery type book but I did enjoy reading it and the author does well in her portrayal of Ted, the main character and narrator of the story.
The mystery element was warming up nicely, but sadly for me, the whole basis of the story was blown away in one sentence about a third of the way through during a conversation Ted is having in the mountain home of his parents. I won't say anymore, I'm sure you'll spot it t

Strange dreams were haunting a man. Ever since he moved into the house, the same dream has been coming night after night.

Ted worked as an orderly for mental patients, which was a sensible move considering his own mother had mental issues. Working hard all day and then succumbing to sleepless nights did not bode well for Ted. Was there something wrong with the estate he bought? Was it haunted? How else would you explain those dreadful sounds? Moans and scraping from...inside the walls?

Being a noted Grammar and Spelling Nazi, I find myself in the unique position of being willing to overlook the copious spelling errors and grammar mistakes made by the author in this paranormal thriller since the plot and its entertaining execution displayed a remarkable and memorable creativity as to her imagination.

From the first chapter to the last, the dense suspense kept me on my toes, or at least on my finger tips as I slid past page after page with anticipatory swipes. Stephen King may b

A good story.

I like Ted is make nurse. Ted purchases a house and discovers a murder took place there. He has horrible nightmares. He sees a ghost and terrible things, but believes it stress. There are plenty of creepy occurrences in this story. The house has a past of torture and death. Ted must face the truth his new home does not have a logical explanation for all the weird and frightening things he sees and feels. If you like haunted house and horror stories, I recommend this book.

The Doctor's Estate

I choose this book in another authors promotion in exchange of an honest review. It's a love story, a paranormal mystery, it's a fun read. Easy to get hooked, a bit confusing at first, but once you get oriented, you fall for the story and are hooked! A fun interesting read, one you won't soon forget. The author knows how to write, draw you the pictures as though you're watching a movie. A highly enjoyable read!

This was an intriguing story.
I do not know if this is Ms Quinto's first novel or not, but there were a lot of typos and odd mistakes. For example, it's as if she wrote it in 3rd person but then decided to make it first person. There were several lines like "I told himself " ....instead of "I told myself ". The writing was rough, unpolished and amateurish. Regardless, I enjoyed the story.

Spooky read

The characters seem a little naive but all in all a good spooky story. I liked the Mom the best! Even with Alzheimer's she has a good sense of humor and a strong personality.

The book was interesting, but there were parts that needed revised. There was a little too much unnecessary detail in some of the chapters that made reading a little tedious. It also needs some serious proofreading, as I found quite a few typos.

Just okay read

The last part of the book appeared to be rushed
Make\female pronouns were occasionally reversed as well as some other words- more editing was needed-the plot was comp!icated and could have been explained in more detail

I loved the fast paced action packed with thriller and psychological elements. This is a perfect book for summer and winter also! The character development was so changed among each chapter, but I surprisingly enjoyed it so much.

I could not put this book down! This would be a awesome movie if anyone ever cared to make it into a script.

A little predictable at times and some typos. But in general I thought it was a pretty good supernatural thriller with a likeable main character.

The Review

A phenomenal paranormal thriller like no other, author Heather Quinto has done a marvelous job of bringing the chilling nature of the paranormal genre into a story with characters who feel real and relatable. Touching on the conflicting nature of the paranormal with those who disbelieve in the possibility of the supernatural world, this novel creates a cast of characters that not only highlight the horror aspect of this tale, but bring the underlying themes and problems to the surface

I will read this, so I can give heather Quinto the critique she needs. I like seeing writers become better, even after the fifth or sixth book.
Heather, you are a really good soul and I wish the best for you. I apologize if I was rude in my other critique; I was just trying to help
