Book Review: Ghost of Blackwood Lane

Book Review:  Ghost of Blackwood Lane by Greg Enslen

ISBN:   978-1-938768-01-9

Publisher:   Gypsy Publications (October, 2012)

Author Bio:  Greg Enslen lives in Ohio with his wife Samantha and his three beautiful children.  He;s enjoying the small-town life after living in the hustle and bustle of Washington D.C.  Greg’s first book, Black Bird, received excellent reviews when published in 2005.  He’s written three novels and two works of non-fiction, and has several more books on the way.  For more information please see his website at www.gregenslen.com

Summary:  For years, the witness protection program has kept Gary Foreman safe from the horrors he left behind.  He’s got a new career and new friends, but they can never know his real name or where he comes from. 
But the program can’t protect him from the relentless dream of a young woman in danger.  It’s the same dream, night after night, and Gary is helpless, unable to stop the dream’s inevitable and horrifying conclusion.  The woman seems strangely familiar…is she someone from his dark past?  Is she even real?   All he knows for certain is that she needs his help, or she will die.

Review:  As a book reviewer you are often privy to great books and authors long before the rest of the population, and on occasion you find an author that is a literary genius.  Greg Enslen is nothing short of that.  With a writing style that fits somewhere between that of Nicholas Sparks and James Patterson, Greg Enslen grabs a reader’s attention and does not let go until the last word is read.  Simply put, this book is one of the best books I have ever had the honor of reviewing. 

In the book, Ghost of Blackwood Lane, Enslen creates three dimensional characters that are so life like you actually feel what they feel and see what they see.  This book took me through an entire gamut of emotion from heartache to happiness, and was a book I did not put down for two days.  This is an unforgettable book that will stay with you long after you put it down! 

Enslen has created a novel packed with suspense and romance, and I would not be surprised if there was a movie spun off of his work.  When this happens, consider the first ticket and front row seat sold!
