"Stone Cottage (Lake Scugog Ghost Mystery Book 1)" by Maighread MacKay - IHIBRP 5-Star Book Review

A Memorable & Moving Read That Proves True Love Holds No Bounds!

Overview: After suffering a deep loss, Rebecca spirals into depression. Searching for a sanctuary to lick her wounds and heal, she stumbles upon what appears to be an abandoned house on a countryside road where she is dragged into the sphere of ghosts, past life regression, pre-birth planning, and reincarnation. There, she learns that love knows no bounds—including death and time.

Maighread MacKay writes a compelling and suspenseful tale of the occult as she merges two incredible storylines—a tragic romance from the 1800s and a modern psychological drama—into one heck of an absorbing and impactful read.

Through her character Rebecca’s research on the Stone House, Author MacKay explores the role of women in the late 1800s; from education to fashion and design, to social expectations, to the intimacy expressed in relationships between husbands and wives. MacKay has done her homework on 19th-century life in Canada since she writes about this time period with detailed descriptions of the culture, traditions, and daily life in both urban and rural settings.

The plotline for “Stone Cottage” is easy to follow despite its complexity. The telling of this story deals with two separate timelines, but the details blending each story together never get confused or muddled. The juxtaposition of characters creates tension and intrigue as Author MacKay allows for ample investigation into the past and a suspenseful exploration into how all her characters are ultimately tied together by Fate.

“Stone Cottage” does contain adult situations and there are certain scenes that may act as a trigger for victims of sexual abuse or rape. This novel should be read with discretion.

Whether one reads “Stone Cottage” as an occult mystery or a parapsychological drama, the sense of satisfaction felt during the telling of this story is palpable and long-lasting. “Stone Cottage” is a memorable and moving read that will call out to be read over and over again. I absolutely loved this story and I highly recommend this novel for those who hold onto the hope that true love will always find a way.

Congratulations to the author on this award-winning story! This novel will be permanently featured on my website at under IHIBRP 5 Star Recommended Reads!
