Mind Games by Stephanie Black
Psychologist Natalie Marsh’s dream is now reality: her mental health services clinic has opened and is housed in an elegant, newly renovated nineteenth-century building. Unfortunately, not everyone is happy with the clinic’s presence, including Heather Osbourne, a troubled young woman who wholly objects to the occupation of the building. Heather has spent years wandering the halls of the abandoned structure, convinced she’s communing with her ancestor’s ghost. When Natalie thwarts Heather’s attempt to leap from a window, the shaken psychologist soon realizes Heather’s failed jump is merely one piece of a disturbing puzzle. Greed and deceit are weaving a web around Natalie, and someone will stop at nothing—not even murder—to get what they want. Stretched to her breaking point, Natalie struggles to learn the truth, but only one thing is clear: nothing is as it seems.
I have always liked Stephanie Black’s mystery novels. While I liked Mind Games it was just ok for me. From the very beginning I found the characters hard to keep straight, there were so many people introduced and not a lot of story lines to keep them straight. I can’t seem to find anywhere if this is a second book in a series, but the book seems to have a lot of back story and history that they allude to but don’t really explain. Overall I found Mind Games by Stephanie Black to be entertaining but not amazing.
