Book Review: What She Inherits by Diane V. Mulligan-Revisited

Hello, Dear Bloggites.  While I am in the process of reading all the book club books to catch myself up to the current month, I have to revisit a previous blog post I wrote on July’s Books & Broads Book Club book choice.  The July book choice was a recommendation by yours truly-Me!

What She Inherits by Diane V. MulliganThe July book club book was What She Inherits by Diane V. Mulligan.  I was first introduced to this book back in February of this year (2017).  Diane V. Mulligan emailed me requesting a book reading and review from me and I gladly agreed because I am all about supporting writers of all kinds.

This story follows the lives of two women who are unaware of each other but are tied in such a close way that it changes the lives of them both as the story moves along.  I was going to rewrite another book review on this book, but I covered this story line and my thoughts on this book so well in the initial book review you can click here and read it in its entirety.

I will state that this book makes you think about your life and all you know as “truth” in it and how, if, that “truth” proves to be false leaving you not knowing who you are or where you came from, it may make you realize the people you thought you knew are total strangers in regard to your knowledge of who they are. 😉

I give What She Inherits by Diane V. Mulligan 4 out of 5 Bookmarks.  Go check out my initial review and then go get yourself a copy and enjoy the ride.

Book Review: What She Inherits by Diane V. Mulligan

I have a question for you, Dear Bloggites: what would you do if everything you grew up knowing, and believe made you the way you were, turned out to be a lie?  Today’s book review is a wonderful read that answers this question in one way.

What She Inherits by Diane V. MulliganThis book review is on What She Inherits by Diane V. Mulligan.  I received a request, via email, from the author offering her book as a gift if I was willing to review her book.  As you all know, I never say no to reading and helping authors out by providing a review.  Thank you, Diane, for the honor of reading your book and reviewing it.

This story follows two people, in two totally different worlds being pulled and pushed by forces outside their control.  Angela Ellis is a young college student whose mother died unexpectedly and forced her to fly home to put the family house in order.  Casey Seaver is a thirtysomething lady who runs a café on a small island which provides the necessary landscape for her to hide from her past and make her own way.  As the story unfolds, Angela is faced with some rather unusual circumstances which makes her believe she is being haunted by her mother’s ghost.  Casey is faced with the potential need to sell her café and leave her island she loves so much.

Throughout the novel, the reader follows these ladies on their strange journey of trying to find themselves while their worlds are falling down around them.  The characters are well developed and any reader will be able to relate to one or more of them in this book.  You have the popular girl that is a lot deeper than surface level, the self-sufficient woman who does not want anyone to dictate her life, the nerdy guy who finally gets the chance with the girl, the friends who always think they know what is best for your life and do not hesitate to tell you how to live it, as well as, the parental figures who were the rock for the various people, and young love gone wrong.

I truly enjoyed this novel.  This is technically my first Paranormal Fiction I have read that features ghosts and I loved it.  The story offered a wide variety throughout: love, friendship, lost-love, family, new-love, and the list goes on and on, PLUS ghosts, but not the spooky, freaky kind (which are not bad) but enough that they figure to strongly in the storyline.  The novel had a few typos and missed words here and there and it was easy to figure out the end result as the story builds out, but that is not always a bad thing.

I give What She Inherits by Diane V. Mulligan 4 out of 5 Bookmarks.  I recommend this book if you want a fun story that will keep your focus.  You won’t be disappointed. 🙂
