The Ghost of Villa Winter Reviews

“I enjoyed this book as it had a really unique setting, a solid mystery, a main character I grew fond of, and a twisty ending.

Clarissa reminded me of a 21st century Jessica Fletcher- older in age but has some pep in her step.

The mystery itself with the suspects being basically the fellow tourists is a closed circle mystery and I enjoyed that.

The descriptions of the characters and the setting {both the town and the villa} are very detailed. I felt like that was also a positive aspect of the read.

This is Book 4 of the series but I read it as a standalone. There are lots of references back to Trevor throughout the book, but the beginning of the book explains who he is and what’s going on with him.”

“The island of Fuerteventura is vividly captured…Thoroughly engrossing and entertaining, mystery lovers are so gonna love, Clarissa, for her never-ending curiosity and never say die attitude.”

It’s Raining Books

I loved this book. It was unique. I could not stop reading when I had started. The writing is so good, and I was up late to see how the story would end. I know a book is great when I have to stay up all night for answers. 

Clarissa and Richard are so complex and interesting. They made the story phenomenal, and I liked their relationship. It was one of the best ones I have read in a long time.

Take the time and read this book, you will not be disappointed. 

Storme Reads a Lot

“I appreciate the amount of work that went into the world-building in this book. Almost Dickensian in its detail, The Ghost of Villa Winter invites the reader to step in deeply into this at-times dire and deadly locale and explore the nooks and crannies with the heroine…

Classic Agatha Christie in its bringing together of a group of disparate individuals, many of whom seem suspicious (and perhaps for no other reason than their foreignness to one another), The Ghost of Villa Winter makes use of this device to further explore the geography, as the group tours around the island, seeking insights into one another and commenting on the lore of the land, which involves that sturdy old chestnut, the Nazis.”
