Mind Games by Stephanie Black {Blog Tour Review + Giveaway}

Mind Games by Stephanie Black 
Kindle Edition, 312 pages
Published September 1st 2017 by Covenant Communications    

Psychologist Natalie Marsh’s dream is now reality: her mental health services clinic has opened and is housed in an elegant, newly renovated nineteenth-century building. Unfortunately, not everyone is happy with the clinic’s presence, including Heather Osbourne, a troubled young woman who wholly objects to the occupation of the building. Heather has spent years wandering the halls of the abandoned structure, convinced she’s communing with her ancestor’s ghost. When Natalie thwarts Heather’s attempt to leap from a window, the shaken psychologist soon realizes Heather’s failed jump is merely one piece of a disturbing puzzle. Greed and deceit are weaving a web around Natalie, and someone will stop at nothing—not even murder—to get what they want. Stretched to her breaking point, Natalie struggles to learn the truth, but only one thing is clear: nothing is as it seems.


My Review: 4.5 Stars

Black does a great job of building a thrilling story full of suspense and tense moments. There are so many twists and turns and at times, I was left reeling. Some moments were a little confusing to me because it took me a minute to straighten out the characters and their roles in the book, but once I got a grip on them, I was in it hook, line, and sinker.

Dr. Natalie Marsh was the main character in Black's previous story, but these don't necessarily need to be read in order. Can I just say if I was Natalie, I'd be looking for another line of work and maybe a move out of the country? I honestly don't know how much stress and drama one person can take. I'd be scared of my own shadow by this point, if I were her. Natalie is written in a way that makes her very realistic and easy to relate to--yes, she's a psychologist, but she's "normal."

There are so many crazy and creepy situation and they all seem to be threaded together with almost eerie, paranormal tendrils that left me feeling a few goosebumps. I can always count on this author to deliver a novel full of surprises that leaves me flipping pages as fast as I can.

Content: very mild romance; mild+ violence (murders, death, attempted suicide, etc--nothing graphic)

*I received a copy through the publisher, which did not affect my opinion in any way.*
