*I received this book for an honest review. Opinions are always my own!*
Hello! I have another review for you guys today! Hopefully you are all having a great week and continue to have a great week. Enjoy my review of The Flip!
Number of Stars: 4
Synopsis (Taken from Goodreads):
“Julie and Brad Evans are house flippers. They buy low, clean out the old occupants’ junk, and try to make a profit. Enter Hemmings House on Bedlam Street in scenic Cold Spring Harbor, Long Island. Too good a deal to pass up, but with an ominous secret. The old Victorian Mansion has dwellers that do not want to be dispossessed. As the house reveals it’s past, will the couple’s marriage survive The Flip?”
I really enjoyed this book!! This book definitely felt appropriate for this month, considering it is almost Halloween! When I first read the synopsis for this book, I really wanted to know HOW scary this book would be. It was kind of spooky, but not so spooky that I couldn’t read it at night. That’s the only time I really read.
The entire storyline and plot was really good and I kept wanting to read more to see what would happen. The only thing I didn’t love was the fact that there were a few scenes where intimacy occurred (you know what I mean). It wasn’t super detailed so it was still a very good book overall, but those parts made me a little uncomfortable.
I really enjoyed reading about Julie and Brad because they are house flippers. I have always been curious about how house flipping works and this book gave a little insight, which I found super interesting!
Julie and Brad are house flippers, and they just bought a big, old, Victorian house. A very creepy, big, old, Victorian house.
Julie has a full time job, while Brad works on the houses that they are going to sell. As Brad starts to fix up their Victorian house, weird things start happening: he hears voices, randomly loses his breath, and sees weird forms on the walls. This all puts him in an awful mood, which causes many fights between him and his wife, Julie.
Turns out that there are ghosts in the house—Gerald and Tessa—and one of them is trying to seduce Brad. Tessa starts causing weird things to happen to Brad and Gerald is constantly trying to get her to leave Brad alone.
Then one day, Julie’s boss tries to get intimate with her, which she refuses. She quits her job, disgusted, and heads home. While she is taking a shower, Tessa comes and manages to start a fire in the house. Julie barely gets out alive. Brad comes to get her and brings her back to their Victorian house to take care of her.
They both start working on the house together and Tessa continues trying to affect their relationship, but doesn’t succeed.
Julie and brad call in a lady that can talk to ghosts and watches Tessa and Gerald find peace and leave. Tessa had lived in the house and was always fawning over different guys, while Gerald was in love with her and was waiting for her to return his love. Right before they leave, Tessa realizes that it was always Gerald. It was a great ending for two couples in love!
