Book Impressions - House of Mirrors by Lisa M Logan

First up, let me declare that I received a free copy of this book in return for an honest review.

House of Mirrors is about a woman grieving the loss of her daughter and suffering from the lack of memory of her life before the accident. It starts off well and gives some nice teases along the way, but ultimately if feels like it could have been more. It doesn't really get going until near the end and then it all ends in a rush. The reveal is a little predictable (but fits the story), but the real weakness is that the supernatural element doesn't add what it could to the story.

Don't get me wrong this isn't a bad book by any means. The story is entertaining and the writing is good, my problem with it is that it could have been much more. With what I read I believe the author is more than capable of doing this.

I believe this is the author's first book, so I look forward to her future work and this is a solid first release.

HOUSE OF MIRRORS is a paranormal thriller about a woman who buys antique mirrors from an eccentric antique dealer; only to discover she has brought entities into the house attached to the mirrors. The uninvited guests cause a bit of a stir for the distraught woman who is mourning the loss of her little girl to a recent drowning. Her husband hires a psychiatrist and family friend to exorcise Eleanor’s personal demons, but Dr. Kelso discovers that the mysterious mirrors hold more secrets—a few that he isn’t comfortable having aired.

“House of Mirrors” taps into the universal hope and desire we all have of contacting loved ones who have died, but sometimes it’s best to leave the dead at rest
