Review: Goodnight Blackbird

Goodnight Blackbird Goodnight Blackbird by Joseph Iorillo
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Review: GOODNIGHT BLACKBIRD by Joseph Iorillo

This is Mr. Iorillo' s third novel. I read these 3 novels consecutively in 5 days. I am very enamoured of this author. But I must admit that by the third novel, the late-30's male finding himself emotionally attached to a 20-something female and putting her off because of the age difference grew a little weary. In GOODNIGHT BLA:)CKBIRD the trope takes a significant twist.

Darren and Jacqueline are both significantly haunted, on multiple levels. Darren bought a home at a quite reduced price, because of Ohio's "stigmatized properties" law. His home had been the site of a multiple domestic killing. Yes, his house is haunted.

Jacqueline' s young daughter died 6 years ago, so Jacqueline refuses to move because she experiences manifestations she believes to be Michelle.

Jacqueline and Darren meet very unexpectedly, and while life for each of them seems to collapse, the two try to form a friendship, possibly more.
