For the Love of Lisa follows a couple, Lisa and Greg, and their daughter, Maggie, as they buy the Victorian House of their dreams. Strange occurrences, such as a blood-like substance appearing in the hallway, have Greg spooked, but he soon forgets about it after Lisa is diagnosed with a terminal illness. When Lisa passes, she has a request for her best friend, but the request seems to anger whatever is haunting the house. Greg and his new lady friend take it upon themselves to investigate the strange occurrences. Will they find out what is causing problems?
I ended up really enjoying this book. I’m not usually fond of mysteries or horror stories, because I am a huge wimp, but this was just scary enough. There were some minor issues, like a few grammatical errors, but everything else was well done. The biggest problem I had with For the Love of Lisa was that sometimes the descriptive sentences were redundant. For example, when Norse describes the love scenes with Greg and Lisa, sometimes she has written something like, “Greg did not want his emotions to get the better of him, but emotions were rising.” Sometimes I felt the plot started going in odd directions, but just as I wondered where Norse was going with it, all of my questions were answered and things got back on track. Overall, this book was well-written and enjoyable, especially if you like a good mystery. 3 stars!
