REVIEWS FOR REST IN PIECE:
“This is a great book from a first time author. See my review on Goodreads.com for more detailed info (spoiler-free!)” – Ariel, Amazon.com
“My initial take on Rest in Piece was as a motif similar to the one in The Lake House (a film I haven’t seen, but I know enough to recall that spin) where two characters are living yet communicating decades apart. Ms. Ginsburg’s novel is a bit more sinister than that as Catherine Adams is trapped in a type of purgatory by a mysterious puzzle. This is more of a Jumanji vibe, if Jumanji dealt with demon possession.
What the book gets right is the urgency of Louise’s quest and fascinating eeriness of the puzzle. It’s also a swift, easy read, which is not only perfect for the mid-grade group it’s directed towards but anyone who wants to delve into a rousing paranormal tale. Mid-graders will appreciate and identify with many of the hurdles Louise faces in her effort so save the trapped Catherine, and the young girl’s fears for her parents’ reactions are logically sound. She even points this out to her father near the end, and George has to agree.
There is an over abundance of telling and exposition in this novel, which unfortunately takes a great deal of the surprise factor away. There are many shocking scenes at the end, which would have had a much greater impact with more concisely edited lines. The characters are also not overly distinctive, so I had to mentally juggle and remember who was who especially during the climax scene where numerous people were involved. George Erikson, Louise’s father, is one exception due to his often explosive temper (not violent though, thank goodness).
Despite any foibles, I’d still recommend this novel, as it was a quick, intriguing read, was quite a bit different from the norm, and I love the fantastic pun/double entendre of the title.” -Adrienne, Amazon.com
“B.W. Ginsburg throws us into the world of twelve year old Louise and her struggle to rescue a nine year old girl named Catherine from a world unlike any other I have read about. As you follow Louise in her struggle between obeying her parents and saving Catherine from a terrible fate you get a real sense of the maturity she is starting to step into. On one hand she strives to make her parents happy, and the other she works secretly against their will to do what she knows to be right.
As Louise begins to piece the puzzle together she starts to formulate a theory about the disappearance of Catherine and what it will take to bring her back. Ginsburg takes us on this journey with Louise as we secretly root for her to pull off her daring plan without being foiled by her parents.
This book kept me entertained throughout and provided a nice twist that made reading it fun and entertaining. I found myself wanting to skip ahead just to find out what was really going on. I read this book in several sittings one night and it made for a fast read. If you want something entertaining and with a unique plot twist, this author is providing you with that through her novel Rest in Piece.
I gave this book five stars because I never found myself getting bored with it, the author wrote in a manner which was easy to read, and I enjoyed the journey. I read the book in one night. This book delivers.” -Illinois, Amazon.com
