THE GHOST MANUSCRIPT by Kris
Frieswick is a captivating mystery thriller that is sure to give you
goosebumps and make you question everything that goes bump in the
night. A well-written story that takes you on a modern day treasure
hunt through Saxon times. Frieswick creates a fast-paced and exciting
story that takes the reader on an adventure through light and darkness.
I was drawn in with the thought of the unknown. This story has all the
right ingredients with ghosts and manuscripts making it a remarkable
read. You will enjoy reading along as you follow the characters on a
grand adventure with a few twists and turns along the way.
The characters are well written and relatable. You can see yourself
being friends with them and going on adventures. Some are easy to
love but others you will develop a love-hate relationship with. Frieswick
has done the research and it shows with the intriguing descriptions,
characters that are multilayered and charismatic.
Read along as past spirits appear and help guide Carys search for the
truth amidst all the rumors. The story takes an unexpected turn toward

make a lovely beach read. I recommended THE GHOST MANUSCRIPT for those who love a
mysterious adventure and an unknown mystery.

fatherâ€™s homeland, then to bed with Dafydd, a mysterious
Welshman who agrees to help her with the search, and

the journal 1,500 years ago appears and assists her in her
