Review: Six Steps Down

Aisley and her family have moved into a century-old mansion with lots of restoration needed. But when the history of the house and its former owners is researched during a school project, secrets, truths, a story of love and a ghostly presence are also uncovered.

Full of mystery and romance, friendship and animosity, this wonderful debut novel by Australian author Mandi Greenwood, is a promise of things to come. The strong flowing prose and fantastic characters are impressive, but it’s the well-crafted storyline that took the prize as it kept me riveted right from the start.

The story is imaginative with lots of mystery to keep any reader guessing, and the dips and curves in the clever plot kept me turning the pages quickly.

There is a sequel on the way. This talented author will quickly build up a large fan base. I look forward to her next offering.
