Peggy Sue Heikel asks her husband Zachary if he is willing to buy a cottage because she spots and ad for one in the local Ann Arbor paper . They go to Dexter to look at it and find it is a mini mansion and even though they are sure they can¿t afford it, Zach asks the owner the asking price. To their surprise Jake is only asking for $125,000 and the Heikels grab it up. They divide their time between their two homes, but from the beginning they see strange things happen in the mansion like faces in the mirror, sounds from the fireplace, doors on the floor of the basement, a dungeon and hidden rooms. By the time they sell their Ann Arbor house and move into the mansion, Zach sees a face that is not his own in the mirror and he sees a dog that nobody else does. They find a fortune in money in a secret room in a hidden safe . Green fog disturbs the animals and silverware seems to float in midair. Doctors give a scientific explanation for the otherworldly things and people they have seen but it doesn¿t take into account the phenomena the Heikel experienced. --- Although the books start off slow and it takes a little while to understand the basis of the storyline, readers will thoroughly enjoy MAGNETIC MANSION, a seemingly haunted house tale that goes beyond the typical sub- genre typecasting. Zack is an interesting character who keeps his equilibrium while coping with unknown phenomenon and a mansion filled with hidden, secret passages, a hidden elevator and various escape routes throughout the house. Forrest Haskell is a dynamic storyteller who pushes the envelope on a storyline that can be interpreted in different ways. --- Harriet Klausner

Magnetic Mansion is a wonderful fictional story based on a true story of a house that my family lived in in Michigan. Many of the details concerning the house itself are true and I love the way Mr. Haskell made the storyline interesting and intriguing. I would recommend this book to anyone that enjoys a mystery and doesn't like to get bored when reading!! Cynthia Bain TexasWas this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
