Stillwater by Maynard SimsA modern ghost story. Life was good for Beth – once. Now a car crash has left her confined to a wheelchair. To help her recuperate and rebuild her life, she’s leased Stillwater, a house with a lake in the countryside. But her dreams of peace and quiet are thwarted when she realizes she’s not alone. A girl who once lived at Stillwater – until she drowned in the lake – has never left, and she does not seem pleased by Beth’s presence.

Beth sets out to solve the mystery of Stillwater. But can she find a strength she doesn’t know she possesses as she fights the fury of the dead girl and tries to establish herself as the true mistress and keeper of the Stillwater house and lake?

STILLWATER is available from Amazon UK.


Definitely one I would recommend for those who love paranormal and ghost stories.

This is a very accomplished book. The author’s experience seeps through and you are entertained all the way through the novel. Even though I am not a great ghost story reader, I thoroughly enjoyed this book.

I enjoyed reading Stillwater. Interesting story makes it easy to read, lovely characters and myriad of feelings… Make you laugh, make you tense, make you read… I recommend it.
