I recently received an email from author Sam Campbell asking if I would be interested in reviewing his book Doll House. I love a good mystery/suspense novel and was happy to accept the offer! I will admit that I hope there is a sequel in the works for this novel. Campbell has a style of writing that captures your attention making you want to know more. The plot line, settings, and characters are outstanding. Together, they had to the mystery of this novel leaving you surprised with every page. I really liked the way the writing style shows just how devastating the hardships where for Emma which cause her to be placed in the orphanage. When she arrives at Miss Crummings’ Orphanage she knows almost right away that something is not right. The themes for this novel would center around loss, hope, and friendship. I recommend this book for middle age students or young adults who love a good suspense/mystery.
Synopsis: Crummings’ Home for the Dispossessed. A mysterious orphanage on the outskirts of town.

It can’t just be a coincidence. The resemblance is uncanny.

Emma must hurry to find out. If not, she may disappear next
